Hello and happy new years blessings and manifestations of wellness and beauty in your lives!
What a beautiful life we live! We are so blessed to be in Australia. I am always grateful for the beauty and political safety we have here. The Woodford Folk Festival just finished and we are home now preparing for the market tomorrow at Eumundi. The weather over the festival stayed sultry, hot and fairly dry… Then the rain came after we arrived home in Maleny and its just beautiful. Grey skies and intermittent rain all day. Great for relaxing and also great for getting the herbals organised again.
We operated The Medicineroom in The Blue Lotus precinct and it was our forth pilot of the Herbal Elixir Bar and its getting better and more refined. If you visited us there please email me and give me your feedback on where you think we can develop the medicneroom’s presentation and services in the Festival. I like to constantly refine, so please let us know your views.
The Folk Medicine Program across the Festival was supported by some of the best Australian and International presenters in wellness and health care. Each year the program becomes more niche with our demographic and once again we did some amazing yoga sessions, listened to emerging nutritional and medicinal trends, and we got to dance, and chant and sleep while doing yoga again! Thank you everyone who contributed to this collective vision of peace and high vibes!
Kevin James Carroll our beloved friend is coming over again on Feb 27th to Maleny for some singing with us! That will be fun. We are preselling tickets at $25 and they will be the same price at the door. We are in The Maleny Yoga Centre for the evening which is super comfy with carpets so please bring pillows and blankets if its a cool evening. Not sure whether we will have any tickets left for the door on the night so please buy online at my website www.medicineroom.net and there is a facebook event up with ticketing link.. The last time I sang with Kev was at Byron Spirit Fest last year and it was so uplifting and beautiful… I encourage you to join us if you have been interested in Bhakti yoga, chanting and kirtan…. its awesome.
