Wednesday the 20th June marks the Southern Hemispheres Winter Solstice for 2012.
The word solstice is derived from the Latin; sol = sun and sister = to stand still.
Quite literally, the sun stands still. At winter solstice the sun remains at its lowest point over the horizon at noon momentarily before starting its journey to higher altitudes. It is the longest night of the year and a seasonal turning point from which the length of the days begin to increase once again.
There are at least 35 distinct cultural celebrations from around the world for this day, commemorating the end of darkness and welcoming of the rebirth of light and its gift of fertility on the land (often depicted as a fierce battle between good and evil where good eventually prevails). It is generally considered a time for regeneration.
Have the last few months shown you some aspects of yourself or your life that are dysfunctional, disconnected or stuck?
What parts of you or your life have been left in the darkness? Will shining a light on these allow you to grow?
If compelled to live synchronously with the seasons and rhythms of the earth Winter Solstice is a great time to be still ourselves, to go internal, discover what’s in the darkness, re-assess, and let go of the things which no longer serve us, so we can embrace the future with renewed enthusiasm.
The action will come with increasing energy- sculpted by how willing you are to reach into the darkness now. This emulates the Season of Discover recognised in the Reorganisational Healing Model. There are different seasons and rhythms in life that allow and support us to learn about ourselves, grow and transform, celebrate and share our wisdom when the timing is right.

The warble of magpies, the golden sunrise through the banksia bushland and the promise of a warm, sunny Autumnal day…
I knew this was going to be a special Clear Day!
The Clear Day held a space for laughter, tears, breakthroughs, love and gratitude.
So much flow and ease…
Doing Qi Gong in nature created a peaceful and beautiful foundation for the start of the day.
The Discover and Transform entrainments were juicy and saw many aha moments and greater connection for all in the room.
Lunch nurtured us, allowing for the community to gather, share a meal in nature, exchange experiences, ideas and share laughter with the kookaburras.
The African drumming in the amphitheatre was phenomenally joyful; we all played drums together as a group, we danced and laughed and were carried away by the African beats. This drumming played a natural segway from the Transform to Awaken states of consciousness- we’re all in this together, with our own unique rhythm to play!
The final Awaken Entrainments floated on through the afternoon as our sense of time and separateness dissolved.
In the final chapter after our final entrainment- the Angel Wash, gathering together to celebrate each other through gentle touch -we left the Clear Day in a state of bliss and full of love. Not a bad day out!
Thank you to everyone who attended to make this a joyful and magical day.
Watch this space for our next Clear Day!

As the weather gets colder into winter many are bracing for a winter cold or flu. Some have been jabbed with a weakened form of the virus that is considered to be the next influenza strain coming our way, to forge immunity and avoid invasion from that strain.
Viruses are floating around in our air space all year round. Germ theory says that infection occurs on exposure to ‘germs’. Though some people get sick often and others hardly at all. So is it purely exposure to the virus that counts?
The immune system is the system in our body that monitors our environment to determine whether an organism is likely to be problematic to our health or whether we can live together harmoniously. If threatening it will co-ordinate quite an impressive attack on said threat. When we are healthy this process is fast and effective.
So does a cough, sneeze, runny nose or fever mean you’re sick? I would argue that it means you are healthy! Am I serious? Yes, I am.
Coughing and sneezing are effective and powerful critter expulsion mechanisms and airway clearers. Snot encapsulates bacteria and runs it out of your body via your nose. Clever. A fever is pretty darned intelligent too. Bacteria and viruses can’t survive in bodies with a few degrees elevation from normal and is your body’s natural way of fighting them off and preventing reproduction. It is a sign that your immune cells are active and doing their job. Without these mechanisms we’d be in a big load of trouble. Our bodies really are amazing.
You might ask yourself, “How can I best support my immune system to do a great job, naturally?” There is so much we can do!
Here’s my formula:
1. Probiotics and Prebiotics
Did you know that around 70-80% of your immune system function comes from your gastrointestinal tract? We have literally billions of bacteria and yeasts living in our digestive tract. They are essential to our digestion and also crowd out the space in your gut leaving no room for harmful organisms to thrive.
A perfect symbiosis. If we have ever been on a course of antibiotics, been on medications, used antibacterial products for cleaning or on our skin, eaten a poor diet, consumed too much caffeine or alcohol, had chlorine in our water supply or experienced significant stress in our lifetime, chances are this population of helpful organisms have suffered. That’s most, if not all of us!
Luckily you can regenerate your intestinal flora at any time in your life! Probiotic fermented foods have been a part of traditional diets for centuries. Kefir (milk or water based from the Caucasus region), kombucha (Japanese fermented tea), kimchi (Korean fermented cabbage), sauerkraut (German fermented cabbage), natto (Japanese fermented soybeans) and many more will help you restore your gut flora. Personally I brew my own kefir and kombucha at home. It is also possible to purchase probiotics in capsule form if you don’t want to invest time into fermenting foods yourself.
Prebiotics are what the beneficial bacteria feed on- this is simple; just make sure you have garlic and onions in your diet. If you want to boost it further, include Chicory root tea/coffee replacement too.
2. Maintain your Alkalinity
An alkaline system is absolutely essential for all aspects of health. Learn more about it here. It might seem to be more difficult to stay alkaline in winter (with the desire for less raw salads and more heavy refined carbohydrate based meals) but the magical lemon is here to the rescue! She is of course a winter fruit and also happens to be the most alkalizing food there is.
Fresh lemon and ginger tea anyone?
You can find out if you are alkaline by simply testing your first morning wee on litmus paper.
A few facts about Vitamin D. Surprisingly, many Australians are Vitamin D deficient. It is crucial to activating immune defenses. It is synthesized on your skin after exposure to sunlight (UVB). It takes up to 48 hours to be fully absorbed through your skin. Washing with soap will wash it off your skin before it can be absorbed.
This means anytime the sun is out in winter months catch it if you can! And don’t wash the sun exposed bits for as long as possible, to optimise your rays, to optimise your immune system.
4. Regular Network Spinal Analysis (NSA)
There is much evidence about the impacts of stress on immune system function. Research shows Network Spinal Analysis improves responses to stress and people receiving this care report fewer colds and flu symptoms. Ensure you maintain your schedule this winter!
To find out more about Network Spinal Analysis and it’s stress busting effects, or to book an appointment visit us here.
5. Fresh Air
We tend to stay indoors more when it’s cold, and keep the windows shut tightly to avoid a draught. This makes stagnant, unhealthy air. Air out your living space and bedroom as much as possible. You can also grow your own fresh air.
Stay healthy and enjoy a cozy winter!
