AOL Bulletin – 25th November, 2015 – Goodness Is All Around Us

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind us to see the goodness in everything.

FYI –  We have the answers!

High 5’s to All!

Chris Ulmer special education teacherTake a few minutes out of your busy life to watch this inspiring teacher at work.  His students are all special needs and see how he reaches them and helps to uplift and inspire them.  The results are quite remarkable.  If only we would all remember to tell children and others what they do ‘right’ and not what they do ‘wrong’ how different the world would be.  Click here to be inspired!


Healthy Food for All!

We could take a ‘leaf’ out of their book….

A homeless shelter in Atlanta decided that their residents desperately needed access to healthy food—but instead of sourcing out, encouraged residents to grow their own.

Organic vegetables and community gardens are typically associated with well-meaning, tote bag-carrying, volunteer at the Coop (and never miss a shift) types. But good, local, nutritious food shouldn’t be expensive, and shouldn’t only be enjoyed by people who can afford it.  A homeless shelter in Atlanta decided that their residents desperately needed access to healthy food—but instead of sourcing out, encouraged residents to grow their own. Now, the shelter is home to a huge rooftop garden planted by the residents themselves, which is expected to yield hundreds of pounds of great quality greens.  Click here to read the article on Collectively Conscious. 


Relaxation for All!

Labyrinth Walk

Labyrinth WalkWendy Rose-Williams

Journey With Us For An Evening of Bliss

To ‘Walk a Labyrinth’ one may experience the benefits of a moving Meditation;  a journey of Self-discovery and connection to Spirit inspired by the history and traditions of Ancient/Indigenous Cultures, Sacred Geometry, Religious/Spiritual Expressions, Community, and the Natural Environment – all woven into the experience.
Lessons of the Labyrinth’ – by Lauren Artress
“Walking the labyrinth clears the mind and gives insight into the spiritual journey.  It urges action.  It calms people in the throes of life transitions.  It helps them see their lives in the context of a path, a pilgrimage.  They realise that they are not human beings on a spiritual path, but spiritual beings on a human path”
 
This will be a complete experience which will include mediation and a Gong Bath.  Not to be missed!
 

Wendy Rose Williams started her comprehensive journey into natural therapies in 1983.  Although traditional forms of Bodywork and Massage were the main focus of Wendy’s career in Natural Therapies, in 2010, she graduated from Nature Care College in NSW with a MeditationFacilitator’s Certificate, and through this time-honoured discipline, her long-term interests in the mind/body connection to health, vibrational energies, and sound, have lead her to further studies and a new European qualification in the modern healing art of Sound Massage (PHI) – a practice of creating Sound Resonance with therapeutic Tibetan Singing Bowls, based on ancient knowledge,wisdom, and practices from the cultures of India, Nepal and Tibet.Since then, Wendy has combined her love and interests of both Meditation and Sound Healing into her own intuitive practice of Tibetan “Sound Meditation” which continues to motivate and inspire her to new paradigms, including present studies towards Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator certification.

The essence of Wendy’s life-long learning, work and ambition has always been to honour, assist, and empower the body/mind/spirit to maintain and heal itself!

Wendy’s motto: Life is a gift, First meditate on it, then breathe!

With Rosemary Butterworth

Well, even though John and I didn’t make it back from Jacaranda Haven in time on Monday to hear Warren’s presentation the feedback is it all went like clockwork. We have put his notes that he based his talk on, onto our website so we can all enjoy it.  Click here to read.

Changing tack now – We have some very sad news to share with you.  Michael Williamson who often performed at Academy Sound Evenings, bringing his deep Tibetan style chanting to us, passed away last Friday afternoon.  He had been ill for a while but passed away peacefully admist his family and friends.

The details of his funeral service are:
1pm on Friday 27th November 2015
at Saint Charles Catholic Church, 582 Victoria Rd, Ryde

Michael wanted to be cremated, so the coffin will be taken away to the crematorium after the ceremony, while everyone will move onto somewhere after for the wake (venue and details being finalised today)
 
We have been able to find an amazing recording in our archives of Mike, Jessica Cowley Martin along with another friend Bobby chanting at an Academy meeting.  To Listen click here.  We have been playing it over and over.

Thought Of The Week

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings,

HEALTH TIP – CELERY

It is wonderful to find that by eating an everyday garden vegetable you are helping your body to maintain good health.

Celery is a strongly alkaline food that helps to counteract acidosis, purify the bloodstream, aid in digestion, prevent migraines, relax the nerves, reduce blood pressure, and clear up skin problems. Celery contains compounds called coumarins which are known to enhance the activity of certain white blood cells and support the vascular system.

Celery’s rich organic sodium content has the ability to dislodge calcium deposits from the joints and holds them in solution until they can be eliminated safely from the kidneys. Celery is a well known natural diuretic and has ample ability to flush toxins out of the body. Celery also has significant anti-inflammatory properties making it an essential food for those who suffer from auto-immune illnesses.  To read more click here….http://www.medicalmedium.com/blog/celery
