In and Around the Academy with Deborah Fairfull

Dear AOL Members,

Another week has passed by and we are getting closer to one of the busiest times as we wrap up work commitments for 2016, prepare for holidays and Christmas. These added pressures can manifest as stress and tension. During this time it is even more important to create little (and big if possible) spaces in your life to reground and recentre, so you can remain true to the spirit of Christmas which is one of celebrating joy, peace, harmony and goodwill to ALL women and men.

Last Monday evening we were once again blessed to have Jason Engelbrecht and Shelley McConaghy grace members with an exquisite crystal healing. It was a magical experience, as we all went on our journeys, receiving exactly what we needed to return with more grace and presence. A beautiful healing energy was felt by all.

This coming Monday we have the much awaited Gerry Taylor-Wood, the Guardian of Grail Haven, presenting to the Academy with a mediative approach and Gerry has a healing message for us all.

We have loved seeing so many new faces at the Academy and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible next Monday.

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.
