Neola Liebenberg
The Secret Language of the Body

11:15am - 12:45pm Kinta Cottage

Empowering woman to read people and understand their own bodies better. Your purpose is to have joy and spread it. To live in love. To forgive and let go. To share your gifts with this world.

The name Neola means God’s gift of joy. Neola believes our body can’t heal when it’s in a state of stress. So, it makes sense that if you’re stressing about food, you aren’t healing. In fact, you just go down the rabbit hole and it’s not worth it. Your divine purpose is not to have the perfect life with the perfect diet. 

The Secret Language of the Body includes:

๏ Chinese face reading
๏ Iridology
๏ Tongue readings
๏ Pimple readings
๏ The emotion behind different illnesses: Louise Hay
๏ Affirmations from Louise Hay

An interactive session has a member of audience volunteer to be read. They fill in a card through the session, and the audience can read themselves via their phone.

“I am the face behind Biology of Joy and I love to encourage and empower women to walk in their calling and purpose. I came here 11 years ago from South Africa and lived in Melbourne for 6 1/2 years. I love sunny Queensland and enjoy this weather tremendously. I love the ocean, puppies, babies and spunky toddlers. I love dancing, running, laughing and being silly. I share a house with Deborah Toussaint – The Self Care Goddess and we have the best times ever. My kids are teenagers and they are the best ever. Life is just so beautiful. Neola xx”

In this workshop, Julie Brett will facilitate an exploration into how our creativity brings us empowerment to make positive change in the world.

Jodie Danaan
The Morrigan Journey
Reclaiming Inner Sovereignty

2:00pm - 3:30pm Koona Hall

This workshop will use the elements to create a cauldron to explore issues relating various forms of violence. Through ceremony and story we will create safe sharing circles (Air) and talk through women stories. We will burn away what no longer serves us (Fire) and name what we want to release. Though Water we will have our own step towards cleansing. Through Earth we come back together and reclaim ourselves in our sovereign state amongst our sisters as warriors strong and grounded.

 Jodie Danaan is a Priestess of Earth-based spirituality and is involved in a wide range of Goddess community events. She has been practicing earth-based spirituality for over twenty-five years and runs the business Oakwillow Weavings, in which she coordinates workshops, teaches the southern wheel of the year, and run coming of age rites for girls.

Another arm of Oakwillow Weavings is her Rowen Tree branch end of life consultancy, in which she helps families plan together in relation to death and dying. Jodie has a love of ceremony and connection with the aim of positively impacting on the way all rites of passage are experienced throughout life.

Domestic and sexual violence impacts on women across all areas of society.  Having a safe space to take about experiences, and reclaim themselves is a powerful space to create for all women.
