FYI – We Dine Together

Denis EstimonWhen the lunch bell rings at Boca Raton High School in Florida, 3,400 kids spill into the courtyard and split into their social groups. But at this school and at schools across the country, someone always sits alone. That’s why Denis Estimon, a Haitian immigrant and student at Boca High, started a club called “We Dine Together.”

Mesmerising Flying Geese

10000 GeeseHave you ever seen birds of a feather actually flock together? Because it is quite a sight to see.

In a video published by YouTube user LazyriverGolden, 10,000 snow geese can be seen taking flight from the surface of Lake Massawippi in Ayer’s Cliff, Quebec.
“This was actually a small group compared to what has been on the lake at other times,” says the YouTuber.

If the footage isn’t breathtaking enough as it is, then the sound makes it even better.

In and Around the Academy with Deborah Fairfull

Dearest AOL members,

Monday evening we were very blessed to learn more about the divine mysteries of Mary Magdalene and the beautiful Grail Haven in France, presented by Gerry Taylor-wood. We were transported and inspired as Gerry shared her wisdom and healing messages. I left the event feeling open-hearted and truly blissful. Thank you Gerry for sharing your light with the Academy.

This coming Monday we will be having another wonderful event: Earth Treasure Vase Ceremony by Jax Goldhawk and ETV friends. I am looking forward to meeting the “Baby” Earth Treasure Vase and know it will be another AOL event of meaning, expansion, love and laughter.

Don’t forget our Christmas Sale where you will find a Treasure Trove of assorted items including books, CD’s and crystals. You can find something to add to your collection or these items make great Christmas.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible this coming Monday.

Lovingly

Deborah

GRAIL HAVEN ‘RAW’ WATER – HAND BOTTLED STRAIGHT FROM THE SPRINGS

Grail Have SymbolGrail Haven bottled water has changed. It is no longer available in its present form. Should you want this unique and precious water there are two ways to obtain it. One is to make a pilgrimage to Mt Tamborine and collect the water. The other is to courier or post bottles to us to fill and we send them back to you. For instance, Ian White of the Australian Bush Flower Essences couriers amber glass bottles, we hand fill them and they are couriered back to him. This way you have the water straight from the springs as ‘raw’. For this we ask for a donation to the Grail Haven Not for Profit Fellowship. This money assists in maintaining Grail Haven as a place of beauty, peace, retreat and healing. Please contact us to order the water, the website no longer takes orders.
