Muscles so tight you could string them across a fretboard? Brain so busy an Yngwie Malmsteen solo seems snailpace? Struggling to focus & get things don-oh look a squirrel!!! Just keen to take some time to chill the **** out? Here’s an idea – a no nonsense stretching & mindfulness class to help you to shed the **** that’s weighing you down. No whale songs, pan pipes or waterfalls to distract & annoy you. Just metal \m/ Your teacher will be Jay – a registered acupuncturist and massage therapist with a background in dance, yoga and qigong. She believes it’s really important to enjoy exercise as a celebration of what you can do. She also believes that everyone deserves to feel better; and loves being part of helping you do so. Classes will be a mix of warm-up, breathing exercises, stretches, balances, self-massage & relaxation techniques. All exercises can be modified to cater to your capability for that day. This class is not a flexibility or strength competition. Mindful Madness is ideally about practising self-nurturing. For many, the whole growing self-love idea is challenging. So, if you prefer to view it as an exercise in less self-loathing? Damn good chance you’ll get more than just physical benefit out of these classes… Basically, the idea’s to teach you skills you can use at home to feel better.

Hypnosis For Relaxation

February 6, 2018
Have you ever, used your will power to achieve an outcome, I have when I was about 25 years old I used to be a smoker.  I had tried on numerous times to give it up, sometimes I would succeed for 6 months, 12 months and then I would be out in a social situation and everyone else was smoking and within a few minutes I had a cigarette in my hand.  All that will power to stop smoking gone is 60 seconds or less.  I consciously said that I wanted to give up but I was sending mixed signals to my unconscious mind. And I can remember it vividly when I Stopped Smoking, it was 5.00am on New Year’s day a long time ago (I won’t say how long J) and I had a cigarette in my hand the ash hanging off the end and then I made a decision that this was “my last cigarette”…. And it was my last cigarette; any time after that day when I went out and others were smoking it never occurred to me to light up. Because I had this belief that I was a “non-smoker” – my conscious and unconscious mind were congruent, were in rapport with one and other and no will power was needed. So when will power and imagination come together, stopping smoking was instantaneous – there was no ifs or maybes it happened then and there.  Wow, the power of the unconscious mind when you give it the right message that carries your emotions with it, it just happens. “I was very emotionally and I wanted to Stop, I remember thinking this is killing me!” “What we need is not the will to believe but the wish to find out” William Wordsworth. In these ‘Hypnosis for Relaxation’ classes and workshops you will learn how to go into trance easily and effortlessly, you will learn 5 things about the conscious and unconscious mind connection. What the conscious mind does well. What the unconscious mind does well Cause and Effect and “Say it the way you want it” especially when talking to your unconscious mind How information is communicated and what we do with it and how it affects our outcomes Imagination and Will Power Perception is Projection So what is Hypnosis?  “Hypnosis is largely a question of your willingness to be receptive and responsive to ideas, and to allow these ideas to act upon you without interference.  These ideas we call suggestions.”(Weitzenhoffer and Hilgard) Hypnosis is as old as civilization itself, and has been practiced under numerous labels since time immemorial.  However, it was not until 1958, when it was officially recognised by the American Medical Association, that Hypnotherapy began to come into its own. When we talk about Conscious… Unconscious.  Your Unconscious mind is out of your awareness.  It’s not that it is Unconscious, it’s just that you are not Conscious of it.  It is part of you that you are not aware of at that moment

Shamans Road

January 30, 2018
Matthew, a Master Shaman, is a facilitator of healing, awareness and spiritual growth.  He speaks the (vibrational) language of the heart.  Often, when people hear him speak they say, “I did not understand what you were saying but at the same time I felt I knew what you were saying.”   Some feel moved to tears by the familiarity of his words.  This confirms that they have received a spiritual ‘heart transmission’; for Matthew is all about the heart.  His words and songs are a direct transmission from his heart to yours.   In 2008, Matthew awakened to many spiritual gifts at the time of a profound spiritual emergence. After this he left a thriving clinical psychology practice in Australia to follow his spiritual calling across the world.  He has been called to the Peruvian Amazon many times where his shaman friends call him an International Maestro and recognize that he has “The Medicine” (Spirit of plant known as Ayahuasca) in him.  Maestros in the Shipibo tradition actively build relationships with the Spirits of Plants that they know to be healers and teachers. The Maestro’s songs (Icaros) are integral in their healing practices and when the Maestro sings ‘The Medicine’ dances in you, healing body, mind, emotion and spirit.   Matthew is blessed with the gift of song and he sings Icaros that heal and teach.   The Icaros are a known bridge to the Spirit World and a pathway to receiving healing and teachings with the assistance of the Spirit of the teacher plants.  The Maestro is your guide in the realm of spirit and the Icaros lead you on your journey. Matthew has been asked to share the Icaros in countries around our world for the benefit of those who cannot travel to the Amazon.    There are many many things that Matthew can ‘do’ and he is happy to share his many spiritual gifts with you to help with your questions and to facilitate healing.  Healing Ceremonies In ceremony, healing power is transmitted through the Shaman’s icaros which are powerful chanting songs whistled or sung to repair broken energetic patterns and restore wholeness. Matthew has been asked to sing the Icaros in other countries for the benefit of those who cannot travel to the Amazon. Matthew sings healing Icaros for individuals and groups. He has sung powerfully for gatherings of over 200 people. He travels and works internationally and sings healing ceremonies everywhere he goes. If you travel with him to the Amazon he will sing for you there also. Amazon Shaman Adventures Travel the Shamans Road to the Amazon with us. Meet our friend Maestro Armando, a Shipibo Shaman who has worked with the Medicine (Ayahuasca) for over 30 years. If you feel called to the Amazon the Maestro is waiting! His friend Maestro Armando is a gifted shaman with over 30 years of experience as a traditional doctor in his community. Maestro Armando his wife Maestra Neida and their family have welcomed Matthew into their home, their family and their hearts. Matthew is recognised by shamans there

Yoga and your Learning Style

January 22, 2018
Svadhyaya is one of the Niyamas (restraint to cultivate inner integrity) of the 8 Limbs of Yoga and focuses on learning, knowledge and particularly self-awareness and a deep knowledge of our innate character as an integral aspect of our growth as a Yogi and as a human being. The cultivating of awareness of our own unique nature, and the way in which we exist in the world, is a significant factor on the path to higher consciousness and, ultimately, enlightenment. Ever since we were born we have been learning to interpret and make sense of our experiences in the world through our senses: sight, sound, touch, smell and taste.  Our physical experiences through our body and the senses are the pathway to higher consciousness.  It has been said we are spiritual beings having an earthly ‘bodily’ experience.  Our bodies are the vehicle in which our souls manifest. One of the ways in which we can develop Svadhyaya is to know our learning style…the preferred method in which we like to be taught and favors learning outcomes for us, particularly regarding our Yoga practice and attending classes with a teacher. There are three main learning styles, of which one will be our chief or ideal style, followed by a second preference and the third which is our least used. Our preferred learning style uses the senses of sight, sound or touch/feel to acquire knowledge.  The 3 styles are: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Approximately 65% of the population are visual learners, 35% are auditory and 5% are kinesthetic.  Our optimal learning style has significance for us as students of Yoga. Visual learners like to ‘see’, they like to be ‘shown’, demonstrations, signs, posters, images, PowerPoint, hand-outs; Auditory learners like to ‘hear’, they prefer lots of verbal cues, instructions, sounds, they can be particularly aware the music in the class, the teachers voice and background noises; Kinesthetic learners like to ‘feel’, they like to embody experiences, be physically adjusted, cued into their body. Most Yoga teachers will use a combination of visual (demonstration of poses), auditory cueing (giving instructions verbally) as well as kinesthetic in both adjusting students and providing mindful awareness indications of the physical and spiritual experience of the Yoga asana, pranayama or meditation practice and its presence in our body, mind and spirit. Traditional Yoga was taught in India by a teacher (guru or Swami) to one or two students at a time (usually wealthy teenage boys) who often lived with the teacher and his family for several years.  The student/s would also perform household chores as part of their role.  Their Yoga education would be for many hours per day and could include sitting at the feet of the teacher as they were instructed (listening), demonstration (visual) of poses as well as performing and refining poses, pranayama and meditation practices (kinesthetic).  This intimate teacher/student relationship was integral to learning and refining their knowledge of Yoga.  A teacher got to know their student/s very well.  The best students, after many
