Thank you to everyone who joined us on our very first 'Buddhist Discovery Retreat'!
About 4 years ago I did my first silent meditation retreat at Nan Tien Temple and found it so influential to my spiritual development at the time that I continued to make regular visits and shortly after built up the courage to radically change my career and life direction. Last weekend I was so excited to be able to offer a Buddhist Discovery Day Retreat offering workshops on activities such as the traditional practices of tai chi and calligraphy; as well as my favourite...
🌿My yoga practice is heavily
influenced by my connection
and relationship with our
natural environment (lately birds!)
- the stronger it is, the more
connected I feel.
A reminder that we are
all connected and we
each have an important part
to play in this world 🌎

When Xavier Rudd took the stage at Marrickville's Factory Theatre last night to a sell out crowd, his insane beats and vocals sent vibrations through to the very core of every being in attendance.
His incredible musical talent, notably his arcane ability to simultaneously play guitar, harmonica, drums AND didgeridoo (with pauses to sing!), is matched only by his equally talented adeptness at delivering powerful political messages about indigenous Australia in his unrelenting rich undertones of LOVE and CONNECTEDNESS.

I grew up near this majestic mountain and yet it's taken me over thirty years to actually climb it! As a child my Dad would recount many stories of the steep ascent (and descent!) that he would take with the schoolkids he taught at one of the local High Schools in the area. At the time I had no real inclination to do the climb myself, however in recent months I felt so drawn to this mountain from my childhood that I was even dreaming about it! Then it appeared in a major feature article in National Geographic magazine and I learned so much more about it's spiritual significance to the local Aboriginal Yuin people, and I felt so incredibly ignorant that it had taken me this long to notice its vital value to the local area. So, over the Christmas break I strapped on my boots, packed my backpack and reserved a full day to immerse myself in a mountain of discovery.
Hi there and thanks for dropping by! I'm Tehla Jane and I'm a self-confessed word nerd, bookworm and yoga devotee from Wollongong, Australia. I love to wonder and wander, and especially love spending time with my two little girls and hubby Glen. My blog is inspired by my daily musings in my trusty journal, where I scribble out endless pages in almost illegible handwriting and occasionally convert this into a typed format! Welcome!
