The process is easy to memorize and is portable so you can do it anywhere. It launches off the EFT Discovery Statement which says…“The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system” And because our physical pains and diseases are so obviously connected with our emotions, the following statement has also proven to be true…
“Our unresolved negative emotions are major contributors to most physical pains and diseases.”

In November 2010 Mbantua Gallery opened in the Main Street of Mornington; a specialist in aboriginal art from Utopia in Central Australia. Its connection to the aboriginal art is through the main gallery in Alice Springs.
On the 1st June 1992, Mbantua Gallery first opened its doors in the heart of Alice Springs. Today it is arguably the largest privately owned aboriginal art gallery in the world.
The Gallery began as an offshoot of Mbantua Store, a small general store situated at 55 Gap Road in Alice Springs. Established by the Finke River Mission way back in the 1950s Mbantua Store still caters for traditional Aboriginal people and has done so since well before any of the major supermarket chains ever came to town. It is now part of Alice Springs history.
Mbantua Store also had a small Aboriginal Art section for many years and so Mbantua Gallery was created. The close affiliation it had with traditional Aboriginal people, the long history of dealing in Aboriginal Art, and the increased demand for and production of art, made it a forgone conclusion that Mbantua Gallery was destined to evolve.
Specialising in art of the Utopia region, north east of Alice Springs, from an early stage, Mbantua played a key role in the history and evolution of Utopia art. The emergence of the Utopia artists is considered to be the largest art movement in the world.
Traditional Aboriginal life is lived in the Utopia Region. The native languages, mainly Alyawarr or Anmatyerre, are the first spoken, with English a second, third or fourth language or sometimes not spoken at all. Traditional ceremonies, hunting and business are still carried out, kadaicha men (tribal assassins) exist, and sacred sites are maintained. The Utopia art is known widely for its vibrant colours and contemporary appeal, yet in knowing its origin, the art of Utopia becomes even more intriguing.
In conjunction with Mbantua Store, Mbantua Gallery visits the remote Utopia region 51 weeks of the year, and has done so since 1986. The round trip is in excess of 600 kilometres. During these years, a wonderful rapport has developed between the people of Utopia and Mbantua Gallery. More than 250 different artists from Utopia paint for Mbantua Gallery with new artists signing up every month.
Promotion of Aboriginal art and culture is also a very important mission. Mbantua gallery travels nationally and internationally, for those unable to visit any of our galleries. This includes private Utopia art viewing, presentations on the art & culture, public exhibitions, fundraising exhibitions and school seminars. Please check our latest news and events for our upcoming touring.
The award-winning gallery presents a vibrant program of exhibitions, public lectures and art events. The McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery is set on 16 hectares of beautifully landscaped Australian native gardens in Langwarrin, 4 kms east of Frankston. A real treasure only one hour’s drive from Melbourne.
The home of the McClelland Sculpture Survey and Award, its program of changing exhibitions, accompanying public lectures and art events, complement the unique sculpture park which showcases over 90 works by major Australian and international sculptors.
Beautiful and unique, the Park is a mixture of developed garden galleries, wild bushland, open grassed areas, lakes and sculpture trails.
Offering day tours and coach trips to Victoria's major tourist attractions. Visit Phillip Island and see the Penguin Parade, take a steam train ride on Puffing Billy.

"Nature Days, Nurture Children" and create healthy, happy kids!
Narelle Debenham is playing her part in re-skilling parents through her program Natured Kids. "Parents like knowing their children are safe [sitting] on the lounge, but they also know it's not doing them any good."
Debenham organises weekly excursions to explore nature in the local area. "The program always goes ahead, rain, hail or shine, because kids love playing in puddles, and exposure to all weathers builds their immunity," Debenham says.
"If children have positive experiences in nature early on and become comfortable and confident in it, they will think of nature as a recreational option and not just turn to technology for play."
Debenham is adamant young children shouldn't be burdened with environmental woes. "Instead, I focus on cultivating a love of nature in children, then they'll naturally want to look after it."

Australia has a history of major winners and world ranked players, many of whom have become household names. Perhaps more importantly golf is one of Australia's most popular participant activities played by people of all ages, status and social backgrounds.
Not only is golf a sport, it is a complex industry and a significant contributor to the Australian economy. It spans real estate and resorts, manufacturing and retail, hospitality and course maintenance. In Australia alone golf employs over 23,000 people and generates over $2.7 billion annually.
The PGA and its members are the cornerstone of the sport and the industry. The PGA has played a significant role in the popularity and promotion of the game from televised international events through to the local club or driving range where the PGA members introduce and service the 1.2 million golfers who play the game each year.

For most of us, swimming with dolphins is a rare and magical experience, so who better to help you connect with these magnificent creatures than the people who've been making the introductions in Port Phillip Bay the longest? The Muir family established Polperro Dolphin Swims in 1986. Named after their classic, lovingly maintained boat, which is 25 years young, Polperro has led the bay in environmentally responsible dolphin interactions. Judy Muir in particular has been tirelessly active in establishing and improving legislation controlling human interaction with wild marine animals, including dolphins.
That's why passengers can't swim up to the bay's bottlenose dolphins, but rather hang on to long ropes trailing from the Polperro's stern, waiting for these often curious creatures to come to them. The rope, and the crew's careful training and supervision of passengers, mean that even non-swimmers can enjoy this exciting experience. “People who are very shy and reticent about getting in the water, in the end you can't get their heads out!” says Judy.
The Polperro departs from Sorrento pier twice daily from October to April. Passenger numbers are strictly limited so everyone has ample opportunity to get wet, or watch dolphins at play from the deck. Reef and seal swims are often part of Polperro trips as well. These are also revelatory experiences, even for most locals, as the bay's rich aquatic life is a surprisingly well-kept secret.
All gear, including wetsuits and snorkels, are provided, and the Polperro has change areas below deck. On chilly days her saloon cabin is warmly welcoming, as is the complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and delicious scones, freshly baked on board by Judy. They're the cherry on top of an inspiring, memorable experience, which saw Polperro enter the Victorian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame in 2001, after winning the environmental tourism category three years running.

At The Yoga House we teach Hatha yoga in a flowing vinyasa style with influences from the Ashtanga and Iyengar lineages. We focus on synchronizing movement with the breath to create a meditative flow. We design a new Sequence for every season, always starting the new Sequence with a strong focus on technique and alignment. As we progress through the Sequence our practice becomes increasingly meditative and flowing.
Yoga is about bringing your body and mind in balance. It deepens your knowledge and understanding of your body ? knowing your strengths and weaknesses and learning how to work with that, is integral to what we do. We teach most poses (Asanas) from beginner stage and then add to the posture to increase the difficulty level ? students are encouraged to work at their level.
Our bodies are all different and therefore we all need slightly different postures.
At The Yoga House we aim to create a supportive yoga community; everyone is welcome whether you are beginner or a long time yogi.
This year we’re celebrating the diverse locations and seasonal delights our peninsula has to offer, with special features on day spas, photography and wedding expos, plus as always we have lots of great ideas and insider tips on how to stage that perfect wedding.
