It really does make a difference💙 (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
Last night we worked with the Throat Chakra, such a challenge for so many. Sharing your truth through communication is a gift, not only for others but also for your beautiful self 💙💙
What a beautiful gift from a lovey client. Sometimes feeling appreciated is the wonderful medicine, even when you don’t realise that you need a boost. 💕 (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
A GIFT FOR THE MUMMAS!💕
I’ve been on the road for a few days checking out University and accommodation in Melbourne with my daughter (Helena). Why my husband has been a open days with our my son (Trev) in Sydney. With both of our children possibly starting adult education next year changes are certainly on the horizon.
I am also a student so I understand the excitement and nerves they will face. I am thankful for my meditation and ritual practices which are keeping my feet in the ground during this transformational time of motherhood.
Cautious to help, guide and love, but not take over, I schedule time for study, Awen, admin and last but by far, not least time for myself. This time for us is uncertain. With babes possibly flying the nest, I am prompted to consider my role as a parent, when to set free and and when to hold close these precious young adults.
I’m looking forward to arriving home, having a warm ritual shower, smudging my home and self, and taking some time to breathe.
These are the moments that are impossible to imagine when you first hold your tiny baby in your arms. Motherhood is indeed a magical experience, I am grateful every single day.
💕So all you mums, let’s celebrate ourselves this week, and the awesome way we keep it together! Mention ‘mother1’ in the notes section of your booking and receive a $10 voucher rouse at your next treatment.💕
✨✨✨BOOK 6 MASSAGES, GET THE 7th FREE✨✨✨
Regular massage is great way to keep those happy hormones circulating through your system, as well as keeping muscles supple easing tension.
Rather then waiting until you feel run down, exhausted or stressed to the max I recommend fortnightly or at least monthly treatments to enhance your wellbeing.
Once upon a time I thought of massage as a luxury, perhaps getting a treatment a few times a year. It wasn’t until a long period of grief and illness, that I decided to try massage as a way to relax and nurture my body, mind and spirit on a regular basis. I started weekly, then moved to fortnightly.
My mood gently began to lift, I could think more clearly, the grief and tension I carried in my shoulders eased and then went away totally. My headaches stopped, my minds chatter slowed down, I felt I had something to look forward to and my depression lifted.
Along with movement, meditation, and healthy eating, massage is a staple in my routine to this day. It made such a difference to my life that I made a totally career change so that I could share the benefits with others that I found myself.
Don’t wait until you are sore, tense depressed, anxious. Get regular treatments and notice the difference.
To get you started, I have a special offer for you. Book 6 Massages over a 6 month period and receive the 7th FREE!
Pay as you go or pay up front, it’s up to you!

Feel like a massage or a facial?
A 12:30 pm space has just opened for Wednesday!
Be quick! 💙
Human touch, it’s magic. It gets feel good endorphins flowing and is scientifically proven to relieve, stress, depression, anxiety and grief.
When is the last time you allowed yourself to surrender to the power of human touch? Surrendering is the key here. Letting go and just allowing a cuddle, massage, or touch of another human can be difficult and often counterproductive without giving yourself permission to let go and get out of your head.
Once you master it, it will change your life. 💙🙏🏻
Find someone to have a cuddle with or get a massage from today! 🥰 🤗🥰🤗🥰🤗🥰🤗🥰🤗🥰🤗🥰 (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
It feel like magic here today! ❄️❄️❄️ (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
A sneak peek into my lounge room, and I see 2 well loved doggies living the life. They really know how to relax. Perhaps the universe is telling me that I should take a note from their books. 🙏🏻😊💕
Make today the day, send a message, make a phone call, pay a visit. Even when it may feel as though you are not needed, you really are. Be that person who makes a difference. 💚💚

A little more on the school calendar, social engagements start to increase, and deadlines seem to sharpen. As I notice this, I remind myself to book in a massage for myself next week, block some time on my calendar for self, and the things I love.
So many of you are just like me, working full time, a mother, a partner, a student, a teacher.
Never lose sight of yourself in the centre of al that you do. Restore, rejuvenate and stay well my beautiful followers.

Today we celebrate the shortest day and longest night of the year for the Southern Hemisphere.
For me this is the most special time of the wheel of the year. It is a time where the sacred idea of letting go and new beginnings coincide. It is a time to welcome the sunshine back into your heartspace as the days from here on start to get longer as we move toward the warmer months.
At home we mark this occasion with a special dinner, to me it feels like Christmas but better. It is a time of being together, reflection, feasting and contemplation.
We have a big pot of Wasail boiling away all day, the table is decorated, the fire is on, we eat foods that represent warmth, pumpkin, curry, orange and spice.
I feel that the earth feels different, there seems to be a twinkle in the eyes of passers by, an element of fun and energy in the air.
Here is a ritual that you might like to consider bringing into your day to mark this special time.
Wishing you a beautiful Solstice!
When you visit Awen, you don’t just get any old massage.
When your massage is over why not allow yourself to feel open as you surrender to the healing vibration as crystals are placed on your body in a chakra layout? Supported by the beautiful Chakra Balancing Essential oil blends from Perfect Potion. As each crystal is placed indulge in the vibration as a crystal singing bowl tuned to each of the chakras is played.
Finishing with a space clearing blessing with the intention to seal in the vibration of the the crystals so that their work will continue after you leave.
This ritual is a beautiful harmony between western massage and eastern spiritual tradition.
Bookings now available on line,under Chakra Balancing Ritual
I’m placing a perfect potion order tomorrow. If there is any thing that you need, let me know before 10am.
Personally I’m going for this beautiful Chakra Balancing Blend.

As many of you know, I have recently received a lovely big order of Perfect Potion Skincare here at Awen. I am loving getting to know each product and over the next few weeks I will be sharing my experiences of each of them with you.
The Cinnamon Facial Srub is an exfoliation product recommended for oily / combination skin. It comes in a sweet little 50g amber jar. At first I was a little concerned that the jar was so small, I also was worried about wastage as you need to scoop out the product rather then squeeze it out of a tube. All of my concerns were washed away after using it.
This scrub has a pleasant earthy aroma, which I immediately found very grounding. The texture is light and it’s not quite a liquid, not quite a paste. I found that this means that you really dont need a lot of product at all to exfoliate your whole face as it spreads easily.
Used on a damp clean face the cinnamon and polished walnut shells gently buff your skin, when massaged gently in a circular motion.
The scrub really felt as though it was doing the job, the tiny granules of cinnamon and polished walnut are not sharp, and are small enough to feel as though they are really able to roll across each pore efficiently. I used an amount about the size of a pea, which was enough to exfoliate my whole face and neck.
I removed the srub using a warm face cloth, it came off easily, using firm but gently strokes, I then continued with my skincare regimen. You could also rinse it off in the shower.
My skin was left feeling warm as the circulation really was stimulated nicely. It’s good to have that fresh new blood doing it’s good work just beneath the surface.
My skin was also left feeling smooth and soft and my serum, moisturiser and sunscreen really seemed to sit against my skin beautifully after all of those dead skincells were gently sloughed away.
I really loved using this product, it is good to have something natural, yet effective to work with. I’ll certainly be using it on a weekly basis through the summer months when my skin does tend to become more oily.
If you are considering buying it, I suggest using something other then your fingers to get it out of the jar, as you don’t want to be adding any unwanted bacteria to your beautiful product, perhaps a small spoon or spatula.
It is available online for $34.95

If you are like me, you love Essential Oils. Not only for their beautiful aroma but also for theirhealing qualities.
Visitors to Awen always comment on the beautiful aroma when they walk in. I am a lover of the the sensory world, so I really enjoy creating new sensations and experiences for my clients ( and myself ) to enjoy.
If you haven’t heard of ‘Perfect Potion’ you’ve been missing out! I can tell you that their products are just beautiful. Simply packaged, Perfect Potion is an Australian brand who creates an innovative and holistic range of natural therapy products, which will not only nurture the body, mind and spirit, but also respects the delicate balance of our environment.
I fell in love with their Chakra Balancing essential oil package first, which lead me to visit their beautiful store in Bondi Junction. I was drawn to linger much longer then I expected to as I played with their beautiful skin care, sipped some divine herbal tea and endulged in a lovely sensory experience.
Dappled thoroughout the store was a variety of Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffusers. Now, If you already own a diffuser, you will already know that the aroma that gently wafts through your space will lift your senses and enhance your well being which is great. What I want you to check though, is whether or not your diffuser is Ultrasonic.
Ordinary diffusers simply diffuse the oil and omit a fine mist, which pushes aroma through your space. If you really want to feel uplifted an ultrasonic diffuser is the way to go. An ultrasonic diffuser negates the positive ions which can be detrimental to our health. These positive ions are present because of electronics, plastic and other polluting chemicals in our environment.
Here is the good news, after visiting Perfect Potion’s beautiful store, I really felt it was the perfect fit for Awen, I came home and wrote to them straight away. After they took took time to research little old Awen they too found that we are a perfect fit! I have now been authorised to not only use their beautiful skincare for Awen’s treatments but also to stock their gorgeous products so that you guys can take the experience home with you!
So, this week I am putting together my first order! How exciting! I will be ordering the 2 items I fell in love with first, the Gohan Ceramic Diffuser, ( available in Black and White, $94.95) although there is a wait on the white one as it’s super popular. I’m also ordering the Chakra Balancing Essential oils kit ($89.95)
This kit contains seven 5ml chakra blends made from the finest quality aromatherapy grade essential oils:
balance blend: base chakra
allure blend: sacral chakra
harmony blend: solar plexus chakra
compassion blend: heart chakra
expressive blend: throat chakra
insight blend: third eye chakra
cosmic blend: crown chakra
Includes the Practical Guide to Chakras and Aromatherapy booklet
I’m really looking forward to sharing this products with you, and hope to be using Perfect Potion Skin Care for all facial Treatments by the end of next week. I am slowly adding the range to Awen’s online Store, so that you can select what you would like to order and then pick up at Awen ( or I can arrange deliver for you).
I’d like to offer you 10% off your first order, so have a look at what is listed so far and email, or message me your order. This offer is valid until Monday 20 May.
I will continue to add products until Sunday 19th.
If you have any questions about the products, the range or what will be on offer please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m sure these products well really enhance your experience here at Awen, I hope you fall in love with them as I have!

Looking forward to sharing our Sound Bath with those who are booked in on Sunday evening💙
Lots of love
Well this looks familiar.
Regular practice helps settle the noise. My students have been asking if I can run a guided class on a regular basis, so I’ve set one up. This class is suitable for Awen’s beginners, journaling students, and others who are interested in making meditation part of their weekly schedule.
The details are here ⬇️
If you have any questions p,ease let me know.
Isn’t t it wonderful to see the colours of the leaves changing on the trees? Autumn really is beautiful here in the mountains. As the leaves will begin to fall over the next few weeks, I am reminded that I also have layers I need to let fall away.
This can can be a lovely reminder to check in with yourself, do you have routine that is stagnant or unhealthy? Habits that you know you’d be better off without? Relationships with people that just are not good for your heart space?
What can you do to change it up?
I am always thinking of new ways to reinvent my days, and routine, to prevent falling into old habits.
Here are a few of the the things I have brought into my life recently, that are already changing the way I feel;
🍁 No screens in bed. This means no checking emails, social media, watching movies, or responding to messages. I have done this before, and then fallen back into the habit of taking my work to bed with me. I know better, but it takes a little extra organise attention and a little bit of will power to stick with it. Since I’ve started this again, I find I fall asleep in minutes and my bed feels like the restful space that it should be. Try it an see how you go.
🍁 Booking ahead for massages! Normally I am pretty good at this, however sometimes life gets busy and I miss a couple of weeks. Then I get sore! Massage is my first port of call when I feel a little down or my body is tired. I’m currently booked in every fortnight and I tell you it works wonders. Along with stretching, it keeps me supple and able to give my clients the attention they deserve. 💙
🍁 Continuing to be alcohol and coffee free. The best thing I have ever done for my body is to stop drinking alcohol. Then I decided to kick coffee as well. Living life that is totally free of substance is amazing. I feel confident that my emotions are not tainted with stimulants. I feel more authentic in my relationships. I am a better listener and I have so much more energy. If you’d like to kick these habits, let me know and I’ll share with you the ways that I finally did it.
🍁 Planing things to look forward to that are healthy, outdoors and frequent. If I don’t do this, life feels like Groundhog Day. Over the next couple of months I have hikes, camps and outdoor fires planed to really allow time to reflect, and connect with Mother Nature as well as my inner self.
🍁 Study, learning new things allows me to continually evolve and grow. I’m currently doing a post graduate, which has been deep and gruelling, so I’ve mixed it up and have a couple of fun courses I am doing as well. Short courses keep me stimulated, which allows focus and the excitement of learning to continue to grow. There are so many courses out there, have a look around and see what you can find.
I wish you all a wonderful April! Below I have some new Awen dates for you, if you see something that you are interested in but the times or days done suit, let me know, I’m always happy to run extra classes if the need is there.
Awen will be holding a special meditation event.
You are invited to share a loving kindenes meditation in the Awen Room.
$25 / person
$5 donated from each booking to https://www.earthday.org/campaigns/endangered-species/earthday2019/
There are 3 spaces left for our Easter Sound Bath. I have some dates here for May and June as well. I suggest booking ahead.
21 April (Easter Sunday, spiced hot chocolate, with almond milk will be served) 🐰💕
19 May (Full Moon)
If you miss out, you might like to know that Helena and I also offer these sessions privately. All we need is a date, and time. Connect with me and we can discuss a time where you can bring your people here for your own special event. This can be very helpful in time of stress, grief, and celebration alike.
We can also come to you!
For those that are not interested in classes, but would like to come along to Guided Meditation each week, this is on offer as well.
I am also in the process of writing a class all about the richness of inviting Rituals into your life. Keep an eye out for more information coming soon, you can also email me your interest and I will contact you as soon as this class is ready to go.

Yesterday I found myself drawn into that space of overthinking, that old anxious feeling gently knocking on the door of my heart.
Luckily I have Reiki in my life. Upon meditating with the precepts, I was able to gently let go, put aside my fears and continue to enjoy my day.
The most important part of the precepts for me is, “for today only”.
Being in this moment..
Feeling into the now…..
Right now is exactly perfect for me, for what to need to learn, for what I need to give.
I am grateful for the present.
🌻Bookings for Reiki Treatment open on 8 February🌻

💚Beginners Meditation Classes start Wednesday 20 February.💚
How do you celebrate without sharing food and a drink? How could you have a cheese platter while being dairy free? How do you feel loved if you have let go of that one (toxic) person in your life and now you feel alone?
All big questions, all can leave you with a feeling of loss.
Letting go, of a habit, can feel like letting go of a companion.
I can tell you from personal experience it is all about perspective. Letting go, can be absolutely freeing, opening up your world to new adventures, a sparkly outlook and a love for yourself that you never knew existed.
Awen’s next course, will have a beautiful focus on letting go, replacing and loving your life, free from whatever is not serving you.
In this group we will support each other and grow together.
Is it time you put your thinking cap on and really asked yourself the question? “What do I really need to do to set myself free?”
Let go of what is holding you back!
Do you think your habits are holding you back?
Whether it’s a New Years Resolution that has gone by the wayside or you are thinking about Feb Fast which is quickly approaching, there is something that all of us could be better off living without.
Of course the classic examples of ‘bad habits’ are excessive alcohol intake, drinking more coffee then recommended, sugar consumption, etc, get my drift? There are also other things that we do in our daily lives which essentially, are not good for us that we ignore. So deeply programmed into our being, it would seem that we don’t even think of them as a learned behaviour.
For some this might be limited self belief, continually staying in unhealthy relationships, communicating with others in an unconscious way, obsessive cleaning, placing expectations on others and more.
Some of us may even habitually create obsticals in our lives, which bring about a sense of overwhelm. An example of this might be; dumping everything on your kitchen bench when you get home, with a plan to put it away later. You then go to prepare dinner and you are faced with a kitchen full of mess, which needs to be cleared before cooking. Instantly you are filled with frustration and make a decision to be cranky, or order take out.
Our busy lives are such, that habits are created all the time. They sneak into our lives like dust balls on a freshly swept floor, and create little piles of dirt. Almost invisible at first, they gently grow, surrounding our space until it is visibly filthy. Before we know it we need to get the vacuum out and suck it all up. The floor then appears clean, but the dust is hidden within the vacuum cleaner. Not always totally dealt with.
The trick is to empty that vacuum bag into the bin and get rid of it!
Temporarily letting of a habit, may have short term emotional and physical benefits. However long term commitment to change, is the magic that will really enhance your life.
I have spent 20 years, consciously working on personal change. I am still awork in progress. Sometimes I totally rock it, other times it can be a huge struggle.
The main thing I have found success with, is letting go of the ideals set by my family of origin, instead creating my own, which are organic and keep growing. Allowing change to move through my life freely, has opened my heart to self love, acceptance and freedom of choice.
Feb Fast is a great initiative, which raises money for all sorts of wonderful causes including mental health and addiction. I’ve included a link here for you if you would like to take a look at their site.
While I am not affiliated with Feb fast in anyway, I am all for kicking habits!
During February, I will be on board to share techniques with those of you who would like support in giving up a habit for good.
If you are interested let me know and I will put you on the list for this group and send you the details.
My goal here is to help more and more people to become their best selves. My motive, we are all worth it!
That is what Melinda said after completing her 6 weeks of Awen’s Journey of Discovery course. Melinda, isn’t a meditator, she doesn’t even keep a journal. However the tools, steps and insight she obtained in this course, really gave her what she needed to let go of old thoughts and habits, and move forward into her bright new future.
This is a course for everyone. Within this 6 week period I share with you, my favourite, (tried and tested) ideas and techniques to help you become your ‘best self’.
Some of the skills you may pick up are how to;
🌿Learn to trust your intuition.
🌿Get to know yourself deeply.
🌿Discover new ways to release stress.
🌿Find ways to support yourself in every day life, and in complex situations.
🌿Change the way you communicate.
🌿Bring positive change, love, and trust into your life.
I’d love to see you there!

Hundreds of people walk through the doors of the Awen room every year. What I have found is that there is a pattern of lingering. For some reason the Awen room seesms to provide a sanctuary to many, giving them space not only for their treatments and classes, Awen is a space where people like to share.
Many of my clients like to linger, telling stories of their personal struggles, triumphs, relationship issues, health worries. Some like to share recipes, others like to share stories of holidays or adventures.
Some of my clients have social anxiety, PTSD, and intimacy issues, but they share. Some clients are social butterflies on the surface, but have no one to talk to about personal issues, they need a shoulder to cry on. A space for emotional release. Some are lonely, some are shy. For whatever reason, my ‘lingerers’ (said with the greatest respect and affection) like to stay.
I allow time between my clients and classes, to check in pre and post treatment. In fact I leave 30 mins between each client.
This provides time for a ‘quick’ chat (10 mins) after treatment.
I then need to use 10 mins to reset the room, changing linen, put towels in the washing machine, hang out the previous load, make tea, a space clearing for the treatment area, and a ‘very’ quick bathroom break.
Then the last 10 mins is used to meet and great my next client. Phew, those stairs and that little rush keeps me fit. 30 minutes is greatly shortened, and pushing people out the door is something that I really feel uncomfortable doing.
I cannot ignore the need for people to feel heard. I appreciate and respect this need.
So, I have decided to offer my ears, my heart and my time to listen. Introducing A Cuppa With Ange
I am setting aside 45 mins per week, to have a chat and a cup of tea with whomever would like to join me. This is one on one time, no strings attached. No counselling, no judgment, no therapy, no selling.
I am here just to listen to whatever you want to talk about. Think of it like a cup of tea with a friend. I am not charging a fee for listening, if you would like to make a contribution financially you are welcome to, if you are unable to, that is absolutely ok as well, I really want to provide a trusted space for you to feel heard, that is payment enough for me.
It is time for you to come and visit me, it will be casual, and we can just chat about whatever you want.
I am looking forward to seeing you, sharing and hope so much that you can take time to enjoy my new offering. Click the link above to send me an email.

Do you make New Years Resolutions? The word resolution is defined as ‘to make a firm decision to do or not do something’. You may like to ponder that for a moment.
I cannot remember a year in my adult life, where I have not thought about becoming better as New Year’s Eve ticked over. I have written lists and set goals. I used to think about becoming kinder, giving up a habit, looking after my health, work goals, family goals and more.
What I have found, is the more I let go, the better the results.
Then life happens. Our light becomes obstructed by emotions, expectations, triumphs and failures.
We become what we see in the mirror. A human carrying emotional baggage, weighed down by the the expectations of our own and others. We carry with us shimmering trophies of our successes and the heavy burden of our failures.
Our shining light is dimmed, we yearn for change. Yet, so many of us seem to hurtle toward New Years Eve hurting. Having one last party, one last drink, one last excessive meal, one last social engagement that we are too exhausted to attend.
New Year’s Day arrives ever so gently, we wake weary, some with a hurting head, some with a hurting heart and we resolve to change. To release our imperfections, let go of the baggage, to strive to be the best we can. Here is a new beginning, another cycle of the same old stuff.
Your perfect inner light, is glowing, always.
Here is another definition for you, perfect; ‘having all the desirable elements, qualities or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be.’
Meditation has taught me the following;
I am in fact a bright shining perfect light. I am love, with no beginning and no ending. I am all knowing, I have all that I need.
With this knowledge, I have no need for resolutions. When I meditate and connect with this knowledge, I naturally tend, to my needs with compassion, love and forgiveness. I nurture my body, my mind and my spirit. It is easy.
I fall into taking the path of the least resistance and reach for another handful of food I don’t need. I buy another item that is not necessary, in search for the instant satisfaction that will make my life better, for a moment. Just one moment.
Meditation allows me to strip away the layers, to sit with my perfect light and connect with the greater good. It allows me to simply be me, without the need to change in anyway. It allows me to love myself and everything around me unconditionally.
When I do this I am a light that shines forever. I can reach all corners of the earth, and beyond.
When I open my eyes. I feel the need to nurture and love myself more then ever before.
My life becomes exactly what is perfect for me.
I am satisfied and full.
There is no need to change a thing about yourself. Just peel away the layers. Let your perfect inner light glow, luminous, effervescent.
I cannot wait to see it.
