Introduction to Mindfulness Workshop

Are you curious about Mindfulness? Then come and join me at the next introduction to Mindfulness Workshop in May.

Mindfulness can help:
- train the brain
- increase creativity
- give deeper meaning to life
- reduce stress & anxiety
- regulate eating habits
- improve relationships

During the workshop we will be focusing on:

- how to change our thoughts and behaviour to disrupt these old patterns and become aware of them
- bring in new thoughts that serve us
- how to see the world with new eyes
- how to experience what is right in front of us
- a renewed relationship with our body
- how our body experiences the world

Dracula The Bloody Truth

Originally staged in the UK, this Le Navet Bete critically-acclaimed production is now being presented by the Nelson Repertory Theatre. Directed by local theatre legend Hugh Neill (One Man, Two Guvnors, Hound of the Baskervilles), this fast-paced and innovative comedy is now having its New Zealand premiere in Nelson!

Taking audiences on a journey across Europe from the dark and sinister Transylvanian mountains to the awkwardly charming seaside town of Whitby, the frantic Van Helsing and his three hapless actors try to stage a life-changing, factual theatrical production of the events of Dracula. Will they pull it off? It’s highly unlikely!

With four actors playing over 30 characters, you’ll see sensational slapstick, frantic costume changes and airborne props, all strung together with clever dialogue and hilarious wordplay.

Dracula – The Bloody Truth is a comedy to sink your teeth into!

You can relax in the spa pool, sauna, steam room, or just read a book on the sun deck overlooking the breath-taking Kaiteriteri beach.

Testimonial: What Gemma Mc Caw says about the retreat: "I had the opportunity to attend a Kimi Ora Yoga and Mindfulness retreat with Jamila Knopp in June. I was blown away by the weekend. It was the perfect balance between being able to get away to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and practice yoga, mindfulness and meditation. Jamila was able to cater to everyone needs in our class, from beginners to the more advanced yogi’s and she was always happy to adjust poses when required which was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Jamila’s retreats for the perfect balance of restoration and learning more about yoga and mindfulness with a kind, calm and caring approach." Gemma McCaw - Christchurch

Harp meditation and Intuitive development retreat

A journey of light, remembering and insight, embracing the parts of us that need us most. The sounds of the harp interwoven with words and intention will take you on journeys within yourself, where you can safely explore. These harp journeys have lasting positive effects.

Deep healing results from the merging of Soul and Body and the deeper insights this encourages. Upliftment and heightened frequency resonance occur naturally. Letting go of the old becomes effortless.

During the retreat there will be harp meditations (in a warm room with a fireplace), intuition enhancing exercises (they are playful, fun and encourage your intuition to speak), reflection, creativity (you are invited to make your own wall hanging to take home with your journey reflected on it), sharing from our heart.

A popular retreat for men and women who want to expand a deeper awareness of them-selves and their perception and connection with the world around them.

Magic happens...

​Accommodation, teacher's fees and superb food is included.

Italian Film Festival

For millennia, family has been the most important social construct in Italian society. Even across such diverse regional differences, or up through the stratified social orders, family has been central to Italian culture. This year, the selection is profoundly infused with the myriad manifestations of how family shapes everything in Italy. Without exception, every film in the Festival this year has in some aspect, family at the centre of it. It is perhaps my own perspective, or age and stage, that has allowed me to harvest this theme from so many films. I believe that the attitudes and values around family remain one of the great cultural assets of Italian society.
The curation this year, is a wonderful exploration of 'familiglia' in so many different ways.

Motueka Library: 1000 Books Before School

Reading aloud and talking to your kids are two of the best things you can do.

1000 Books Before School encourages families to spend quality time together, promotes pre-literacy and learning by having listened to 1000 or more books before the child starts school. Any child aged from birth to starting school can participate in this self-paced programme.

1000 Books Before School is a programme designed to encourage and support families to read aloud to their children from birth with the knowledge that reading aloud to children is a vital ingredient in building a child's foundation for successful learning.

1000 Books Before School is a collaboration between Tasman District Libraries and the Motueka Family Service Centre and is supported by the Motueka community.

Free, but you need to bring all your own materials and craft supplies.

Every Wednesday afternoon.

Bring your lunch, or grab something from the Library Café.

All welcome. Bookings not required.

Library Knitters

Come along for a cup of tea or coffee and some good company. The Nelson Public Library Knitters meet at 10 am every Thursday to create garments for charity organisations across the community.
Experience at knitting not needed, just a willingness to give it a go.

We have wool and needles available to use, or else feel free to bring your own.

We ask that 100% wool be used for the blankets.
Any donations of wool would be fantastic!

We also have a group at Nightingale Memorial Library on Monday afternoons between 1.30 and 3.30 pm.

Football Golf

Mixing two of the most popular games in the world, football and golf, this game is fun for all ages and brings families and friends together in a sporting situation where age doesn't matter.
Using a full-sized football, you play on a 9-hole course and take turns at kicking the ball from a tee to the green and then into a large hole marked with a flag. The length of the holes vary in distance and difficulty, making you think of how best to play each one.
We have a great clubhouse facility that also offers a cafe so we can cater for food and beverages to make your day complete.

Birthday parties a specialty!

Great fun and a challenge to all.
Perfect for birthday parties, staff team building days, corporate events, family gatherings, football club training or just plain good fun with your friends.

Our Place Our Time

Meet the artist - Saturday 11May, 1 -2pm, All Welcome.
Exhibition runs 8 May to 1 June 2019.
We are proud to present three exhibitions by three local artists with a mutual underlying concept - The Human Conditions in our environment.
Here we have Maggy Johnston with a body of work that reflects on our behaviour in regards to the current environmental issues, whilst an issue worldwide, the work presented relates to our people, councils and industries here in Nelson and in a wider sense to New Zealand.
In the artists words...'an expression of the on-going use of plastic in our local area and its pollution of the environment, both land and sea. It is time that our people, councils and industries took responsibility for their part in the catastrophic problem of plastic environmental pollution. We can no longer be complacent as the health of the planet is at risk, and we must all act now: this is our home, and the home of our future generations. These ‘totems’ express our thoughtless behaviour, but is this how we want to be remembered?'

Instead of changing your props around you simply roll/crawl/glide to your next station and sink into your new pose. Don't worry, Lisa will make sure you know what you are doing!

WHY RESTORATIVE YOGA & MUSIC?
Restorative yoga is a wonderful way to reset your nervous system, to switch from busy (fight/flight/freeze) mode to resting (rest/digest) mode. We give our bodies and minds a chance to stop, to sort things out and to heal. The different instruments will support this process by surrounding and bathing you in beautiful vibrations. All of this at the time of the full moon so you can both connect to yourself and to the cycles of our planet.

This session is suitable for anyone craving some nourishment, come join us!

Sarah Peacock

Singing her own style of Americana, Country Rock, Acoustic, Roots and Rock. If you think Wonder Woman is a badass, you’ll definitely want to meet Sarah Peacock. 1.2 million miles, 2,800 shows, and fourteen years of nonstop crushing it while flying solo is one heck of a road trip. Sarah Peacock bridges gaps between Country, Blues, Americana, and Rock-N-Roll. Her music is raw and truth telling, sometimes with kindness, sometimes with a dark side, but always fiercely unique. Essentially, at all times, Peacock is victoriously defeating the forces of evil with glorious Amazonian strength, passion, and determination

In 2017, she signed with In Tune Entertainment and American Roots Records. Peacock is sponsored by Taylor Guitars, Fender, 1964 Audio, Strymon, and Mississippi Cold Drip Coffee. Her upcoming EP, “Hot Sheet Motel,” is a collection of 5 songs that reveal the secrets of one woman’s journey through the shadows.

“Sarah Peacock has a voice that’s a force of nature, at times soft and nuanced and occasionally rafter-rattling powerful. ”
— Sam Gazdziak (Engine 145)

Fergus plays regularly at comedy clubs and events in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and beyond.

In recent years Fergus has had Takaka crowds roaring - and he is looking forward to returning for more!

A selection of adventures, fun facts and myths. With a stand-up comedy style based strongly in physical theatre and storytelling, he spins a yarn – and some of it’s even true. Fergus has had many bizarre encounters with the truth… including several standing ovations at a nudist festival. This year’s show features new material about the challenges of getting along with young people and old people.

What about those freedom campers?

Come out and tickle your funny bone with an evening of hilarity, featuring Fergus Aitken!

Improvised Movement Workshop

Come along for a day of improvised movement!

Anne Bogart's Viewpoints are a comprehensive structure for understanding the way our bodies interact with time and space. The Viewpoints we look through in this system are Spatial Relationships, Kinaesthetic Response, Tempo, Duration, Architecture, Floor Pattern, Shape, Gesture and Repetition.

Using movement exercises, we will investigate The Viewpoints as an ensemble. This work often gives us a shared vocabulary for talking about and creating theatre and dance. It is a practical way of experiencing the different ways our bodies can relate to space and time. It is a powerful tool for connecting as an ensemble. It is a way to heighten the impact of the choices you make when creating work.

This workshop is recommended for people who are involved with theatre and dance, whether as a student, creator or teacher. This promises to be an uplifting day of movement and connection!

Book your place by emailing Lisa Allan (your tutor) on wintergreencreative@gmail.com.

FRANCESCO TURRISI - Northern Migrations

A true "musical alchemist," Francesco Turrisi is one of the most striking pianists to come out of the European jazz scene in the past decade.

Collaborations with the likes of Bobby McFerrin, The King’s Singers, Philippe Jaroussky, and Rhiannon Giddens illustrate a remarkable versatility. Last in Aotearoa with audience favourites L’Arpeggiata, 2019 sees Turrisi take the stage solo.

Northern Migrations features original solo piano compositions and improvisations, narrating the story of his lifelong journey from the heart of the Mediterranean to the moody surrounds of Ireland.

Formal and folkloric, Turrisi weaves early-Baroque ostinato lines, Mediterranean modal melodies, minimalistic grooves, and Renaissance counterpoint through a prism of jazz improvisation, creating a unique and haunting musical language.

Running Time
70 minutes with no interval

Pre-Concert Talk
