A Short Guided Meditation with Gangaji


Many years ago I saw Gangaji when she was in Australia and she made a deep impression on me.  When I heard this YouTube which was sent to me this week I experienced the deep peace that she leads you to, once again.  In such a short space of time, only 9 minutes, Gangaji takes you within and expands your awareness.   A highly recommended way to spend 9 minutes.  Click here

In and Around the Academy

Academy of Light LogoWith Rosemary Butterworth

We were so delighted with how Spirit works on Monday night.  We walked into the Art Gallery at Mosman and there we were surrounded by Indiginous art!  Julia Smith was about to speak to us on how she works with the Earth and next week we have a Guatemalan Shaman!

Many of us have previously met Julia Smith when she talked about her work with sound, her sound bed and her use of Soul Colour, but we all sat glued to our seats as she described her work for the Earth, how she was called to all parts of the world to restore balance,  healing and in some cases collect part of her energy that had been left there.

It was fascinating last Monday Night to be taken to Jerusalem, to the Wailing Wall, to walk down the alley to the Stations of the Cross to see the birth place of Christ in Bethlehem, the Garden of Gethsemane and many other famous sites. She said she always felt safe even though their were soldiers with machine guns stationed at the sites. Julia took us into meditation after showing us photos of the sites and we visualised ourselves in the energy.  Later in the evening we meditated again connecting with our core and took the energy down into the centre of the earth and as she brought it back up we couldn’t help but be revitalised.

Next week we have a unique experience offered to us as we have a Shaman, Viktor who is a Guatemalan Shaman and is dedicated to his Mayan roots.  He lived and studied with the time keepers and is an expert on the Mayan calendar and is happy to explain it.  He is also a lecturer, a shaman and leader to several rural development programs in Guatemala.  Viktor will explain what is needed at these times of great change.   This is a wonderful opportunity to meet a Shaman and learn more about Mayan culture.

HEALTH TIPTurmeric Fights Depression


Turmeric is a super root which is very beneficial for our health. It’s rich in antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, is great for brain health, lowers the risk of a heart disease, and has been found to lift depression, as we previously mentioned. In a clinical trial on major depressive disorder (MDD), Curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) was found to have equal effects as the prescription drug fluoxetine (the generic form of Prozac), without any adverse effects.

Dr. Ajay Goel, Baylor Research Institute and Charles A Sammons Cancer Center, Baylor University Medical Center and study co-author, stated: “It is a novel and surprising application for this natural medicine. People with depression have higher levels of inflammation in the brain. Also, people with depression have lower levels of neurogenesis in the brain, meaning they make fewer new brain cells than people with no history of depression. Curcumin is both a potent anti-inflammatory agent and a powerful stimulator for neurogenesis.”

You should also know that new research has found that adding turmeric to your dishes greatly reduces inflammation in the body.

Turmeric Lemonade (for 4 servings)
4 cups cold filtered or sparkling water
2 tablespoons freshly grated or powdered turmeric
4 tablespoons of 100% maple syrup, honey or Stevia if you are avoiding sugar
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons or limes
Juice of 1 blood orange (optional)
Instructions: Mix all the ingredients into a small pitcher, stir and serve with a slice of lemon as a garnish.
