WHAT – The Bone Broth Essentials Workshop, Prahran
WHEN – Thursday 30 July
Join us for an intimate Bone Broth work-shop at Paleo Den in Prahran.
Bone broth is an ancestral superfood; cheap, versatile, healing and extremely nutrient dense. It’s easy and affordable to prepare at home. Not only does broth enhance your health and wellbeing but it adds wonderful flavour to all sorts of home cooked meals. It's also an amazing beauty food: your skin will thank you for the gelatine and collagen you get from the broth!
The benefits of broth explained by author by Sally Fallon:
“Stock contains minerals in a form the body can absorb easily—not just calcium but also magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulfur and trace minerals. It contains the broken down material from cartilage and tendons--stuff like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, now sold as expensive supplements for arthritis and joint pain.”
You get to enjoy a warm cup of broth as well as a small pack of frozen bones from grassfed beef to take home. You will also receive a PDF-eGuide.
We keep the work-shop small so the participants get a chance to ask plenty of questions and demystify the process of cooking their own bone broth. Places are therefore limited to 10 participants.
WHAT – Chakradance Journeying, Toorak
WHEN – Saturday 18 July
Chakradance is a powerful and authentic healing dance practice to promote that wonderful state of calm vitality known as well-being.
Practising Chakradance can help tune and balance your whole body/mind/spirit system using spontaneous dance, guided imagery and music that resonates deeply with each in turn of the seven major chakras.
Some who have experienced it claim it has transformed their lives; others simply that they enjoyed it hugely. Why not try it for yourself?
Journeying is a series of 7 workshops (one for each chakra). Each workshop runs for 2 hours.
Each workshop begins with an opening meditation, then a warm-up dance which is more dynamic in feel, a mini dance through all 7 chakras, then a meditation leading into each specific chakra, a longer dance journey, mandala art, and finally a closing meditation.

Composting With Worms
WHAT – The Ecology Centre Presents: Composting With Worms, Irvine
WHEN – Sunday 5 July
Divert waste from the landfill and create nutrient rich compost for your plants. Learn the basics of odor and pest free vermicomposting for any size home!
Home produced kitchen food scraps make up almost 15% of the U.S. waste stream! (measured in pounds of waste and not accounting for the water, energy and other natural, financial and human resources involved in the production and treatment of wasted food). This waste stream amounts to 20% of landfill-caused methane, a gas that is produced by improper decomposition and has a 25 times higher impact on climate change than carbon dioxide.
Composting is simply the most environmental solution to inevitable home kitchen food waste! Anyone can implement it at their home. Vermicomposting, composting with worms, produces the best quality compost (worm castings, vermicompost or “garden black gold”) in a relatively fast time. It is easy, cheap, odor free, pest free, sustainable, and can be done inside the house also! In the garden, vermicompost is used for soil fertility, plant vibrancy, and pest management.
If every household in the U.S. would vermicopmost kitchen food scraps for one year, a quarter of the U.S. agricultural compost needs would meet for that year!
Join us to learn how to transform kitchen food scraps into the best organic fertilizer for your plants! In this workshop you will learn:
- Important food waste problems and solutions that impact us all
- Basics of various composting methods, structures and compost uses
- In-depth effective vermicomposting, including small-scale and large-scale operations
Participants will take home composting worms, and have the opportunity to purchase The Ecology Center inexpensive worm bins to start a zero food waste zone at their home!

WHAT – Mindfulness Workshop: A Wider Mind, Shoreditch
WHEN – Tuesday 14 July
“..imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world....” Albert Einstein
A talk on the relationship between mindfulness and creativity, including an introduction to some simple mindfulness techniques.
Apple, Microsoft, Google, Twitter, Facebook and even some fine old English institutions including the Bank of England, BP and the Department of Business & Innovation have all introduced regular mindfulness training for their staff partly in an effort to reduce stress and help their people to be more productive but more importantly to encourage them to be more open-minded and therefore more creative.
Our minds can all too easily fall into a circular habit of worrying about the past or scheming about the future and all the time miss out on the present moment – the place where we can make the most impact. Mindfulness techniques are designed to make us that bit more aware of whats going on and slowly begin to come out of the habit.
Drawing on examples from Sport, Music and Technology Startups, this talk will also focus on the use of mindfulness to increase the very human urge to express, create and imagine. In the words of Larry Page, Google Co-Founder “...if you're not doing some things in your life that are crazy, then you're doing the wrong things...”
Eoin O'Floinn has been a mindfulness teacher for the past 3 years having left the corporate world in 2006 to travel throughout India and the Far East to explore holistic medicine, yoga and meditation.
