(A Quarterly Newsletter)
Welcome to Issue 1 of Life Magic, our quarterly newsletter.
This first foray into print has been delayed by over 6 months from my
initial intended start date, mainly because I needed to build up a mail
list of subscribers from scratch. A critical mass has now been achieved,
so thank you for subscribing. And for being patient.
My intention for this newsletter is to keep you informed
about what I am up to with Life Magic Healing Centre and what is going
on in the world of The Journey, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and
Energy Healing. This time I will focus on The Journey as this is the major
focus of what I am doing right now.
So what are we covering this 1st Quarter of 2009?
I hope to catch up with you soon. Perhaps you would
like to visit the Healing Centre? When you do, please just give me a ring
first to make sure I am available to see you at that time.
An Accredited Journey Practitioner
I am very pleased to advise you that I am now an Accredited
Journey Practitioner. I received my certificate in January 2009. My first
Journey course, the Journey Intensive, was in February 2007 and I completed
the final one, The Practitioners Week, in August 2008.
I then had to complete the remainder of 47 case studies,
which I managed to do in mid-December. Thank you to everyone who helped
me by being a case study – I really appreciate it.
Here I am taking a break!
With all the experience I have had during the training
period and with the case studies, this means that I am now able to swing
into action as a competent Journey Practitioner. The Journey expects very
high standards from its practitioners, and to stay accredited we have
to attend the full Practitioners Week programme once every 3 years. This
is to ensure that our standards remain high and that we are up to speed
with the latest practices and developments.

Beautiful new premises for
the Life Magic Healing Centre
The Life Magic Healing Centre has operated from our
home since 2004, but I have always been aware that inviting people into
our home was not the most professional way to run a practice, especially
as we cannot set aside a particular room with access to the outside.
So now that I have become a fulltime Journey Practitioner
I needed to have professional premises. These I have found in the perfect
place in Howick – on the corner of Moore Street and Fencible Drive
– which is just one street back from Picton Street, the main street
through Howick. These premises are 4 minutes from home, maximum, so I
am able to be there at a moment’s notice.
The Healing Centre is peaceful and private. We close
the door and we have a sanctuary from the world.
Here are a few pictures of the premises, both inside
and out. Wouldn’t you like to come to see them for yourself?
Brandon Bays in Australia
Brandon Bays, the founder of The Journey, is currently
visiting Australia and running the following Journey
Intensive courses. It is well worth meeting Brandon and hearing her
story firsthand. She is a tremendous presenter.
Unfortunately only Melbourne is still really practical
for you due to the timing of this newsletter, but if you get in quick
it is still feasible. The price is A$695, though I can get you a $100
discount off this if you speak to me before you book.
On the day following each of these Journey Intensives
is the Advanced
Skills Workshop which is $200 extra if booked at the same time.
Brandon is also running the Manifest
Abundance Retreat in Coffs Harbour on 13 – 16 March 2009.
The prerequisite to this course is the Journey Intensive. This retreat
is wonderful and I must admit I would sincerely love to attend again.
The cost for this one is A$1,495, and once again I can get you $100 discount
if you contact me. This is a residential course so all food (wonderful
vegetarian/vegan) and accommodation for 3 nights is included.
While I realise that I have given you very late notice
of these courses, I can heartily recommend them, particularly as Brandon
is running them. They are the only courses she will personally be running
in Australasia in 2009.
What is the full Journey programme?
To become a Practitioner the following courses must
be attended as part of the Accredited
Practitioners Programme, plus 47 case studies must be handled:
| Journey Intensive
||NZ and Australia
|Advanced Skills Workshop
||NZ and Australia
|Manifesting Abundance Retreat
|| Residential – Australia
|Liberating Kids Shining Potential
||NZ and Australia
|Healing with Conscious Communication
|No Ego Retreat
||Residential – Australia
|Practitioner Accreditation Week
||Residential – Australia
||Here you are a trainer for a Journey Intensive, helping the other
In addition to these 25 days of intensive and hands-on
training and the case studies, you are encouraged to attend Grad Nights
which enable you to practice your skills with other Journey students and
practitioners. These are usually held monthly. One of the current venues
in Auckland is our home in Howick. In addition there are other courses
and get-togethers available, as well as the option to resit any of the
non-residential courses at no charge.
The result is that by the time a Practitioner is accredited,
he or she is fully competent at conducting Journey Processes with a client.
Many people do the whole Practitioner Programme, as
above, just for their own personal benefit and development. They do not
intend to practice, but instead experience the programme for their own
healing. In fact it is tremendous seeing the wonderful changes in your
fellow trainees as you meet up with them on the various stages of the
Personally challenging and very healing. I can recommend
the programme to anyone who is interested in making radical positive changes
to his or her life.
A Journey Card
Brandon Bays and her husband Kevin Billett have
designed 44 inspiring Journey Cards that are “filled with profound
contemplations … that invite you into a direct experience of your
own enlightened awareness”. I intend to feature one in each newsletter,
and this quarter I am giving you “Vigilance”.
I chose this card at random from the pack of Journey
Cards at 9am on 9/02/2009, the opening date of the Life Magic Healing
Centre in Howick. The card is perfect for us, and reminds us of the need
to be present to what is here right now. This is exactly where a Journey
Practitioner's attention needs to be throughout the session with their
If you wish to purchase a set of The Journey Cards
please contact me, and I will get them in for you. If there is sufficient
demand, I will stock them in the Centre in due course. (PS - NOW
