Shramana gave rise to Buddhism which has Karma at the core of its beliefs. (more…)

You may have heard of Valhalla before, it is the beautiful hall located in Asgard where Vikings are chosen to go to when they have suffered a glorious death in battle. Asgard is one of the nine worlds in Norse mythology and is the home to the Norse Gods. Odin is the chief of the Gods who became the ruler of the Viking world when he overthrew the primeval giant Yimir and created the world out of his remains. He rules in Asgard with his wife Freya (also known as Frigg) along with the other Norse gods Thor and Tyr. Valhalla is one of many mansions in Asgard but this is by far the biggest, beautifully decorated with gold and home to Odin and Freya. (more…)
French educator Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the modern Olympic Games in 1894 after proposing the ancient Greek tradition be revived. The ancient Greeks had Olympic Games from 776 B.C. to 393 A.D.

Hypnotherapy, what does it make you think of? Being made to do things without your knowledge and clucking like a chicken? Well it is not mind control; it is actually an immensely relaxing experience that can help you unlock hidden parts of your mind.
Hypnosis has always existed throughout history in one form or another; however it was only well recognised in the western world since the 18th century. Franz Mesmer (from who we get the word mesmerising) was a physician that had hypnotic powers and was the first to study the field from a scientific standpoint. He developed the first consistent method for hypnosis which did include a large degree of theatre, which is where the popular stage persona of a hypnotist as a mystical figure can be dated back to.

Fathers have been dominant figures in our lives throughout human history, always loved and respected for providing much needed guidance through our lives. They are also the pillars of society keeping us safe and protected. However despite all of this positive energy that fathers bring in to our live the tradition of Father’s Day is relatively new in modern times.
It has been accredited to Ms Sonora Louise Smart Dodd from the USA as the founder of Father’s Day. The story goes that Sonora had the idea for a Father’s Day on the Mothers day of 1909 (Mothers day was only first celebrated in 1908 but was made an official holiday in 1914), she recognised the hard sacrifices that her father had to make to having to bring up six children alone after her mother had died in childbirth. She thought that if there was a day to recognise mothers then fathers also deserved the same recognition.
As we all know, we have an exciting weekend coming up and everyone has gone British crazy! This will be a weekend that we can all celebrate together and be part of history. On February 6th, 1952, Princess Elizabeth II became Queen, after the tragic loss of her Father, King George VI and her coronation took place on June 2nd, 1953. 60 years later, we are proud to be celebrating The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on June 2nd, making her one of the longest serving Monarch’s after Queen Victoria. As this will be national day of celebration, our traditional May bank holiday has been put back a week, making this weekend a four day one – 2nd – 5th June.
Here are a few facts about The Queen:
Not only is Queen Elizabeth II celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this weekend, but she has also celebrated her Diamond Wedding Anniversary (19th November, 1947). So, not only is she the second Monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee, she is in fact the first Monarch to celebrate a Diamond Wedding Anniversary!
Did you know that it was “McVities and Price” who made the official wedding cake from War rations, sent over from a group of Australian Girl Guides? This cake was 9ft high and in 4 tiers.
