Charlotte’s Rhythmical Massage

References from Chrysalis parents:

“I just wanted to share my gratitude to Charlotte for her amazing ability to work with Rudolf Steiner’s rhythmic massage. The healing effect on my children has been incredible. We moved to Bellingen this year and it has put an unbelievable amount of stress on my boys who have dealt with a new school, new house and moving away from family. From a parents perspective we underestimated how much the stress of all this change had on our children, which came out in challenging behaviours, which I now understand to be their way of expressing stress overload. Both boys did one session a week for 6 weeks. From the moment we walked in, Charlotte’s warmth and open hearted kindness put myself and children at ease. First by giving them a foot bath followed by a massage. Charlotte used a variety of oils which relaxed them into a deep sleep. Each week I would notice both boys slowly settling down and sleeping better, nightmares started to calm down and anger and frustration during the day seemed to slowly disappear. They started having better days at school, a positive outlook and were more grounded and happy within themselves.” Avril

“Connecting with Charlotte Rogers has been a very positive experience for children and adults in our family. Her work is very thorough and caring. Her assessment of which areas or organs that require support with rhythmic massage has resulted in more restful sleep, healing and a deeper connection with self.” Hamish

If you are interested in what rhythmic massage could do for you or your family please contact Charlotte on 0402 469 699.

Listening to Country

Listening to Country is the first of five events that Heartwood – a company formed by anthroposophical educators –  will host over the next five years. Listening to Country is not a conference; it is an opportunity to listen to, learn from and communicate with Indigenous Elders, Custodians, Lawmen and Women. 

All knowledge exchange will take place in yarning circles and focus on themes such as stories of sacred waterways, whale songlines, traditional indigenous healing and remedies, Law/Lore and the way stories teach morality, learning from country/education, a holistic approach to economy that incorporates culture, social justice, environmental protection and management, and business development, and further areas of exploration. 

Some yarning circles will include hands-on practical aspects – all will focus on deep, respectful listening. The full programme is available with registration information is on the website:

We are truly grateful to all participating Elders for their generosity in participating in this event. All profits generated will be made available to indigenous presenters.

We hope this will, in some small way, be a starting point for a cultural shift. Come and join us.
