‘Bad’ eating habits

Today I opened my book ‘Wellbeing from Within’ and the random page I opened to was the quote, ’Healthy eating is the key to wellbeing.’  Ouch! For me life is a constant tug of war between loving food and  healthy eating. It seems I have a better chance of eating healthily when Denis and I eat at home. When I am eating socially in cafes and restaurants I tend to eat foods that are not so healthy and usually too much! I read on more about what I had written in my book and thought to myself, Oh dear! Of course I can’t blame being with others or where I am...

Out of my Comfort Zone – but Great Learning

The last two days have been way out of my comfort zone, but there is lots of learning for me. Months ago I booked for our annual Reflexology NZ Conference to be held in Nelson 14/15/16 June. Our Waikato group have been talking about it and looking forward to spending time together. The highlight for me was a workshop with a reflexologist, about reflexology for critical care. Denis dropped me off at the airport ready for my 9am flight on Thursday – time to check in to the hotel, visit a friend, look at shops and settle in before tomorrow morning’s start. At Auckland airport thick fog delayed the flight...

My Book So Far…

I see my grandchildren growing up and my heart overflows with love. Such precious children growing up in such a contradictory world. How can I help? Each time I would see opportunities to share with them it was like they would roll their eyes and think ‘here she goes again.’ I knew exactly how they felt. When we are young life is ahead of us and we feel indestructible – it is not in our consciousness to listen to old people. It is about doing, experimenting and living life. Yet I had all this learning from over my lifetime that I really believe puts us on the right track to...

Wayne Hackett Seminar Waihi Academy March 2019

  The Wayne Hackett seminar was loved by all who attended. Wayne has a way of presenting to simplify and bring together everything in our text books  in a way to inspire us. He has a wealth of knowledge and wisdom gathered from his life and  40 years of Jin Shin Jyutsu. I loved his stories of Mary Burmeister. Combined with a great sense of humour and being a master teacher, Wayne had us spellbound during the 6 days. Wayne brings numerology and astrology to demonstrate relationships which further our understanding of the art. We learned so many practical applications and how to give the most effective treatments – and...

Dame Denise L’Estrange-Corbet’s Interview

I was reading about Dame Denise L’Estrange- Corbet in the Herald this morning. Upon reading the article I pondered how incredibly individualistic she is and how  ‘World’ is too. Dame Denise L’Estrange- Corbet has stayed true to herself and her philosophy has continued through her business and now she is being recognised for who she is. I don’t know much about the fashion industry, although I had a distant encounter with Dame Denise L’Estrange- Corbet more than 20 years ago. My daughter, Marie was studying textile design at Victoria University. She designed hand-dyed chunky, oversized woollen shrugs and approached World to buy them, which they did. I remember how supportive, kind and caring Dame...

What Mary Says… A Compilation by Lynne Pflueger and Michael Wenninger

Day 35 / Day 100 Each day on Waihi Beach Wellness Facebook page I have been writing a short article about an aspect of wellness. I have decided to blog because at times the posts are too long for facebook and may be better suited as a blog on my website. Mary Burmeister had a lifelong journey of teaching and healing with the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Over her lifetime she spoke her wisdom and philosophy of Jin Shin Jyutsu through lectures and treatments. This book, ‘What Mary Says’ captures as closely as possible the essence of Mary’s teachings through quotations she used. I would like to share some...

Paying Forward in Tauranga

Today when in Tauranga, a  lady retailer said to me ‘ A really special thing happened to us last night.’  The lady works a lot and said yesterday night she couldn’t really afford to go out for dinner but she wanted to spend time with her darling daughter. A few friends got together with their daughters and went for pizza from Phoenix on the Strand and had a lovely time. When she went to pay she was told an annonymous person had taken care of their bill. They couldn’t believe it and felt overcome. What a lovely world we live in and the evidence is when people do things like this.

Visit to Elephant Sanctuary in Laos

Yesterday I had the privilege of visiting Mandalao, an elephant sanctuary, Luang Prabang, Laos. The Sanctuary Visit The guided tour consisted of a lady from Portugal, the guide and me. After being driven along a very pot holed road, we sat in the café overlooking the sanctuary with a cup of tea and listening to an elephant expert. He has worked with elephants for 27 years, worldwide, and is an international consultant who works with sanctuaries, zoos, and works towards eliminating cruelty to elephants. What a smiling, gentle knowledgeable man! Spending half an hour with him was a real experience. We were given socks and Ninja boots and set off...
