    • April Charity Raffle: Hope Foundation

      Wednesday 7 April | By: Admin Manager

      Our April Breakfast will include a raffle with proceeds going to the Hope Foundation, who support women from disadvantaged backgrounds to develop personally, professionally, and ultimately achieve their goals. We would love for attendees to drop off a small gift for our raffle basket, and to take part!
      Hope Foundation Founder Bronwen Healy escaped the world of addiction and prostitution in 1999, and wrote her first book ‘Trophy of Grace’ in 2004 about her journey. She established the Hope Foundation as a way to use her personal experience to help change other people's futures.

      She works alongside the LoveWell Cafe to help disadvantaged women in the local community find their feet and develop support networks to take back control of their life and become their ideal self.

      "At Hope Foundation we work with women who are rebuilding their lives. We work with counsellors, social workers, local businesses, and our social enterprise café The Lovewell Project, to train, reskill, and rehabilitate women as they establish a new life."

    • April Monthly Mindset Column: Finding 'Stillness' in a Constant World

      Wednesday 31 March | By: Jaye Barros (The Balance Tree)

      The body benefits from movement, and the mind benefits from stillness.
      If you're like me you possibly get these two around the other way!

      If you have a head filled with internal chatter and a body that likes to rest a little too much then today's the day to start thinking of another way of being.
      There are many free apps to teach and help you meditate - there are even walking meditations so you can do both mind and body at the same time!  Doing a "still" activity where you need to get to an end result (including watching a movie, playing a game, clearing your inbox) does not, in fact, assist in stilling your mind.  Find something that allows you the opportunity to go within and hear your inner wisdoms - meditation or journaling are a great way to start.
      If you are in need of getting your body moving, then start small, a gentle 15 minute walk, some simple stretching exercises or investigating some online yoga, tai chi or stretch classes will help you get motivated to take on more.

      What can YOU do to gain and maintain a healthy mind and body?
