December Energies

december-activation-carnac-NVSDecember is going to come in and go out very quickly. We are required to balance ourselves in each moment, in every day. Many of you are continuously going through major changes within yourselves and you’re not feeling like the same person that you were, even as close as yesterday…..

….It’s time to become unstuck and clear the residue. Remnants of judgements and criticism of yourself are just distractions. In this month of December, some of us will have sudden events that will be unexpected and a surprise. The changing of the guard is occurring again and you might feel that your post is left unguarded. In the higher realms there is a lot of movement around you, as much is going on, to align you with a new path, a new reality. That is why you will feel great one minute and then very odd the other. Many days will feel surreal. It is time for you to have moments of celebration and play, to lift any heaviness. There is an abundance of gifts coming in and you will get glimpses of this around December 15 – the potent times will be from December 21 to January 2.

Towards The Light

Natascha NikeprelevicSound is such an amazing thing. It can evoke so many different things in different people. We walked the labyrinth on Monday night listening to a wonderful soundtrack followed by a gong bath from John Butterworth and then this video came across our screen.  What a talent Natascha Nikeprelevic has.  We hope her overtone singing inpires you.  It’s under 4 minutes and is a must listen – click here!

Rose Alchemy

My Rose DreamMy Rose Dream takes you through a series of rose images with a verse and not only that but it is accompanied by the Susan Boyle version of I Dreamed A Dream.  Our suggestion is to allow the vibration of the roses, verse and song take you on a journey.  Breathe into the 3 minutes video and blossom – click here!

Invitation : If you have a U-Tube clip, encouraging words or a suggested speaker you would like to share, please let us know. Email us with your suggestions on

Facebook AOL LogoWHAT’S ON At the Academy

Where : Mosman Arts & Community Centre, Cnr of Art Gallery Way and Myahgah Road. When: Monday Nights 7.30pm – 9.30pm Entry : $15.00, Concession $10.00 Finish time is 9.30pm


MONDAY, 14th December 2015 at 7.30pm


This is our last night for 2015! COME and join us and wish all your friends in the Academy a Joyous Christmas.

It is an evening for celebrating Christmas and an end to another year of inspired presentations that our speakers have given us.

So, with this in mind we have asked Elle and Joe Van der Meer, from our Sound Evenings, to bring their beautiful voices again and cover us with the sound of Christmas. You might remember the previous time they came they sang an African song which was just exquisite. So we can look forward to hearing them again to fill our hearts and souls with the message of Christmas.

Rosemary Butterworth was once called the Angel Lady in Sydney because her work with angels included bringing through messages for people from their Angelic Guides. So Rosemary thought it appropriate to ask the Angels if she could bring through messages on the 14th and they have agreed. So be ready to receive your Christmas Message.

As a finale to the year, John Butterworth will sound the Academy year out with a fabulous Gong Bath. So you might like to bring a rug to lie down (or you can sit in a chair, your choice) and be blissed out.

It would be wonderful to see you all there and to give each other a hug for Christmas.

It’s been such a great year. One to celebrate and honour.

Please join us to make it an evening to be grateful for ‘what was’ and open to ‘what will come’.

We’ll be back in 2016 on Monday Evening, the 1st February.

With Rosemary Butterworth

I wish we had a photo to share just how beautiful the Grand Hall looked with the Labyrinth down on the floor lit with candles around the edges and the peace we experienced as we walked it.  It brought back beautiful memories of the time when the Academy put on Bathed in Sound Events and we walked a Labyrinth too.   When we had all finished walking we were invited to lie down on the Labyrinth while John Butterworth played his magnificent gongs and gave us all a Gong Bath.   What a glorious way to end the evening.  Our gratitude to Wendy Rose Williams for facilitating our Labyrinth Walk and to Emily Simpson, creator of the wonderful Labyrinth Walk in Centenial Park, for lending us a copy for our walk.  Perhaps we can ask Emily for another loan next year.  In the meantime, you can always experience the peace and joy walking the Centenial Park one.

Labyrinth Walk

Dear Rosemary, John and the AOL Team,
It was such a lovely evening, and I really enjoyed our journey together with the Labyrinth; your beautiful opening Meditation, and John’s very moving Gong Bath and Closing Circle! Your masterful Workshop experience ensured the great success of the evening, and I’m very grateful for the kind assistance and support shown to me by both your good selves, and the whole AOL team – Peggy, Warren, Terri, and others I do not know 🙂 I received some lovely comments from participants last night, and I’m sure Emily will be so pleased that her Chartres Canvas and Shamanic Music was so well received. It was a great night, Thank You so much!

I would personally like to ‘thank’ those that attended last night’s event.
Looking forward to seeing you next Monday, and I do hope we can do this again 🙂
Namaste, Wendy xx

For all those people who love the gonging, John will play them again at the conclusion of next week as a finale to 2015.

NutriKane D
Don’t forget to order your NutriKane D as we will be closed down over Christmas. You can purchase at a meeting or email us and have it shipped to you. It is always important to have good gut health but perhaps even more important at Christmas time.

Christmas Gifts
You will be able to purchase gifts for Christmas at the following two weekly meetings. Gifts like John Levine’s Silence of Peace, in fact all of his CD’s help take the mind to Alpha and reduce stress and anxiety but most importantly and lovely to listen to. For the users of Soul Colour, an extra bottle would be very welcome. Then there are many books.  One very suitable book for a Christmas gift is The Wish.

Here is a review from a reader:
The Wish (by Angela Donovan) shows how to manifest Your wishes by applying universal metaphysical principles practically combined with removing or avoiding potential blockages.  My favourite practical exercise shows how to turn yourself into a pendulum to get Yes/No answers so you can use this anywhere. …Neville de Hennin,

You seek problems because you need their gifts.”  …

HEALTH TIP – Golden Milk

Golden MilkClick on this link to Family Health Freedom Network for the directions & ingredients to make Golden Milk and to watch a wonderful, simple, clear ‘How To’ Video for Golden Milk by click here.  Highly recommend watching this video.  So much good information!

The main ingredient in the recipe for Golden Milk is turmeric. Turmeric contains curcumin, the polyphenol identified as its primary active component and which exhibits over 150 potentially therapeutic activities, which include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

Adding black pepper to turmeric or turmeric-spiced food enhances curcumin’s bioavailability by 1,000 times, due to black pepper’s hot property called piperine. Yup by mixing turmeric and black pepper together, you increase your body’s absorption of the turmeric by 2000%!

Community Announcement

Can You Help?

Grail Haven France Crowd Funding

Grail Haven en France future meditation towerPlease would you take a look at our Crowd Funding Appeal asking for funds for a new roof to one of the buildings at our retreat in France.
We have put heart and soul and many years and much money into France as well as the other two centres. Our feeling now is that it will continue into the future and be for the many, and so the ethos of Crowd Funding would be in line with that group and community spirit. The young volunteers who came to help this year had a wonderful experience as you will see from their testimonials on the Crowd Funding site.
