Thank you to all those who participated in Sumie classes and healing in the first year since I moved from the western district.
Classes and healing locations
This year we have started to do massage and will do classes at The Forge in Castlemaine.
This adds to our existing locations of Carisbrook and Newstead.
At the Forge we plan to start Aikido for kids women and Adults . Aikido is a non violent martial art which focuses on the spiritual development of the person as well as martial skills. It is totally non violent and works on understanding the principles of Ki or life force harmony
will be offered and the style is HATHA Yoga and I will include Bakti Bajaan devotional singing into the classes

Indian drumming and percussion-
has been in my life since the 1980s and I have worked with bands and toured to national folk festivals and performed in Adelaide with many Indian singers and artists. If there are any serious persons wanting to learn Tabla or to generally play percussion with the djembe or darrabaka I can teach. Where? Carisbrook or the Forge. $35 lesson.
Healing and Feedback
Thanks to all those who have given me feedback on the healing that they felt after massages. It is a great blessing to us all and only happens when we open to the unknown and the new. Healing is a magical thing and the more and longer I am involved with it the less I really know about how it works. Of course we can have theories and systems but often things work outside those parameters. Let’s see what happens this year as we open to whatever the world offers, remembering that not only the good is good for us, for we learn in many ways and pain can be a lightning to the soul. ......Gerard
