INSPIRING GUITAR LESSONS / SINGING WITH GUITAR / SONGWRITING DEVELOPMENT - Jay Bishoff
I welcome all ages! But here is one specifically for the GROWN-UPS…. Been dreaming about playing guitar? Coming right into MUSIC, with wide open creative vistas rapidly opening UP?? Singing with guitar? Clear song writing strategies for moving forward…. Playing your favourite songs well, with your own individual style and flair? Might this be YOU?
Parents (like me) often necessarily (and rightly!) prioritise developing our children’s creative talent and ambitions. It is also important that we ‘fill our own cup’. This way, there is always more to give from our own creative wellspring. I am specifically addressing those GROWN UPS, who have held a music dream for a long while. If any of the above resonates for you, I am quite sure that… The time is NOW for you to do this thing.

CRANIO SOLUTIONS – Beke Bertram
My name is Beke Bertram-Toft and in my business "Cranio Solutions" I focus on a light touch modality called "CranioSacral Therapy", which originally derived from Osteopathy. My background is in physiotherapy and my clinical experience has led me to study "Upledger CranioSacral Therapy", which I have been practicing for the past decade. This form of therapy focuses on finding the cause of a symptom by looking at the bigger picture. It includes physical, emotional and spiritual factors that might contribute to the creation of a symptom. I believe every symptom is your body communicating with you and all we have to do is listen. I would like to assist you with the listening. I treat pregnant women, neonates, children and adults. Please see my website for reasons why people come to see me or contact me.

HOLISTIC HEALTH COACHING & CHEMICAL-FREE LIVING WITH ESSENTIAL OILS - Emmely Rackemann
A little 30 day experiment of changing what we ate turned into a career change! The health outcomes were undeniable and amazing for both my husband and I, and this led me to become a holistic health coach. After this I had to share my passion, knowledge and experience about how food and lifestyle choices can affect your life.
Then after having kids (1 beautiful girl and 1 cheeky boy!), my passion expanded into chemical-free living after I was shocked at the amount of toxic chemicals that were in baby products, and also in all of our personal care, beauty and cleaning products! This lead me to discover essential oils, and Young Living's 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils resonated with me at every level and have been life-changing.
I offer personalised coaching programs, run workshops and am available for private classes including topics such as:
- Gut health and fermentation
- Nourishing breakfasts and healthy snacks
- Practical tips for meal planning
- Identifying and reducing your exposure to environmental toxins using natural products including essential oils

TRAINING INFORMATION FOR LIGHT, COLOUR AND DARKNESS PAINTING THERAPY- Sally Martin
Training to become a painting Therapist in the Liane Collot d’Herbois method, involves a multi-layered journey. It begins with developing more awareness for the changing qualities of light shining in the atmosphere around and how this affects the colours we see in nature. Students are trained to notice the correspondence with their own inner wold of thinking, feeling and willing. The course also has a spiritual aspect connected to what is called ‘archetypal’, light colour and darkness. Is there an unseen spiritual presence working behind each of these visible phenomena? It has a spiritual and social aspect where in the many exercises, both practical and for self-development, the student is stimulated to stay present with the knowledge that we are all interconnected with each other and the whole of creation and that it does matter what you are thinking, feeling and doing. Following the path of this therapeutic art training with light, colour and darkness as your constant companions, enables you to live with more awareness, stronger heart forces and a more energy for carrying out your actions. You gradually develop the ability to keep yourself in balance. The journey starts with you and your own healing, and then when you are trained to work as a painting therapist, you will be able to provide the necessary healing space for the people that come to you. Case studies and diagnostic work will be presented as an introduction to this way of working.
Your teacher: Sally Martin, has, since 1978, been involved with anthroposophy and its practical application in daily life. For 23 years she worked in the context of the ‘Camphill’ organization in the UK. During this time, she completed a diploma in Anthroposophic Painting Therapy at the Emerald Foundation - a training developed by Liane Collot d’Herbois in collaboration with doctors and therapists. Meeting with Liane and her teachings opened the way to a new understanding of the spiritual background of colour. In 2001 Sally moved with her family to Australia; since then she has provided many diverse training opportunities for people wishing to explore this method both artistically and therapeutically. In 2008 she founded The Sienna Academy which provides a path of training to become a Painting Therapist. Sally has worked for 16 years as a Painting Therapist at the Noosa Pengari Steiner School on the Sunshine Coast, and runs a private practise at her own home
Participants This course will be of interest to therapists in other modalities, teachers, parents and all who are interested in anthroposophy.
Australia: ongoing painting Therapy Training with 14 modules spread over 3.5 years
China: a parallel training with the same organizational structure
Thailand a new introductory Foundation Course with 3 modules.
