Spring & Rebirth at Qi 🌸

September is Spring! After our long, cold winter we can welcome the buds and shoots of new life.

Spring and springtime suggest rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. It is the time of conception, regeneration and new beginnings (Eostara in the European tradition). This is the time to celebrate new life with Eostara eggs – animals are reproducing, buds and flowers appear on plants, and the air is sweeter. Unfortunately we usually celebrate Easter according to the Northern Hemisphere seasons, so the symbolic meanings have been lost. Perhaps you can organise your own Eostara ritual this year to welcome this season – boil eggs and paint them, leave offerings in the garden, dance barefoot in the grass to celebrate new growth.

What needs new growth or regeneration in your life? Health? Following your heart? Creativity? Make your own list!

Spring is the time to start again. You can invite the Spring energy into your body and your life by standing outside with the signs of Spring, sensing the sap rising into the trees, the eggs incubating in the nests, the buds bursting with life. Bring this revival into your own body, becoming curious about what needs to grow in your life. To symbolise this, you can tie a green ribbon to the branch of a tree or the leaf of a potted plant to remind you of the promise of Spring: new life starts, bringing new chances and opportunities, bringing energy to grow, physically and spiritually.

We are so excited to announce that Stage 1 of our Expansion is near completion. Come and take a sneak peek at our newly fitted-out jewellery & crystal shop next door, at 745 Glen Huntly Road. Our existing shop is currently being refitted for the bookshop and cafe.

NEW FORMAT FOR OUR 16TH ANNUAL OPEN DAY!

By popular demand and with more practitioners on board, we’ve decided to run Open Day over two days. This will accomodate for longer free talks & workshops!

You are welcome to attend as many free talks and workshops over the Saturday and Sunday. Mini treatments will now be offered for the whole month of November, to be pre-booked directly with the practitioner of your choice.

A list of participating practitioners and schedule of talks and workshops will be announced soon.

If you can’t make it on one day, you can make it the next!

We are each awakening so quickly now to what truly is right for us. We are feeling more and more confident to simply step away from all that does not serve us, from all that will never serve us. It is not a matter of ‘working on’ ourself, but recognizing that certain alignments pull us down, or out, no matter what.

Let’s spend a moment together connecting with the Divine, with God, with Spirit. Breathing in, coming into centre… (read more)

When it comes to looking after anxiety & mental health, nutrition is key. So many times in clinic I speak to patients with chronic anxiety who are missing key nutrients in their diet.

I am a big advocate of smoothies to help jam in some nutrients into your diet. It just makes it a lot easier and it’s a pretty yummy way to do your Naturopathic homework as it were.

So I thought I’d share one of my easy mental health smoothies to help with anxiety & cognition… (read more)

Let’s be real, when you are feeling like crap and people tell you to smile it can be really annoying, and even piss you off sometimes.  But, once you get passed being annoyed or PO’d, if you think about, you will know that they might be on to something and are not trying to give you the shits.

Biological psychology researchers have found that our facial expressions, influence our cognitive responses to our environment and experiences…. (read more)

Loving ourselves does not come easily for many of us and yet self-love is the foundation of resilience. The only person you will be with for the entirety of your life from birth to death is – YOU. There will be many others sharing the journey of life with you but only you will be there through all of your experiences. It makes sense then that if you can get good at loving yourself you will set yourself up to be able to support yourself in healthy ways through life’s ups and downs. Furthermore, a by-product of loving and appreciating yourself is that you will naturally attract others… (read more)

What is a Women’s Wisdom Circle:

A Women’s Wisdom Circle is a time honoured way to explore the path of womanhood. In ancient times, women used to gather regularly ‘in circle’ to share stories, love and wisdom. Reviving these sacred women’s gatherings is one way of reviving parts of our feminine nature and lineage that have been lost or ‘misplaced’ in today’s modern world.

Sharon will be offering an Introductory Women’s Circle on September 13, before running them on a weekly basis from October 11 onwards.
