Jain 108 Chats to the Wellness Couch - Sacred Geometry, Vedic Maths, Geometrica, Mathemajics, Fibonacci sequence, Quantum

March 14, 2019


In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the most minuscule particles, to expressions of life discernible by human eyes, to the greater cosmos. These inevitably follow geometrical archetypes, which reveal to us the nature of each form and its vibrational resonances. They are also symbolic of the underlying metaphysical principle of the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. It is this principle of oneness underlying all geometry that permeates the architecture of all form in its myriad diversity. This principle of interconnectedness, inseparability and union provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, a blueprint for the mind to the sacred foundation of all things created.

On Thursday, we chat to leading expert on Sacred Geometry and Vedic Maths, Teacher and author of 30 fascinating books some beautifully hand-written in calligraphy and creator of 10 DVDs, Jain has always been drawn to the spiritual and mystical… he is fascinated by numbers and shapes. The main theme of his life’s work is “The Translation Of Numbers Into Atomic Art”.

Jain is an international lecturer, having taught 3 times in the USA, Amsterdam, Italy, India, Singapore, Malaysia. He is currently teaching seasonally in Singapore where he has set up a school called The Joy Numbers Institute. In between overseas travels he teaches hundreds of children in the Byron Bay area of Australia, a highly visual content of lessons called Mathemagics.

Teaching the Beauty of Numbers, often to dyslexic or special needs children, Jain’s math enrichment classes are highly in demand. In July 2017, Jain was one of the main speakers, with Caroline Myss, at the Chartres Cathedral Wisdom University,
celebrating 1,000 years since the creation of this impressive Gothic masterpiece, the topic being on one of the 7 Liberal Arts known as “Arithmetica”.
Due to popular demand, this year in July 2018 Jain has been invited again to teach “Geometrica”.

The Wellness Couch discusses Pain Science with Shaun Brewster

February 21, 2019

Pain Science – it may be your brain, not your back.

In this topic we will discuss what happens in the brain when someone experiences pain and how it can hard wire a neural pathway that sets that person up to experience even more pain over time. We will cover this concept from a neuroscience perspective, but also give practical strategies for helping break those patterns and remove or reduce pain.

Let me introduce you to a Phenomenal individual who will chat about pain science on Thursday. A person who has total disregard for his physical limitations allowing him to master and compete in ultra marathons without ever hearing a whine or negative thought from him!!!In fact, Shaun inspires many with his physical abilities and mindset that doesn’t even compute the word failure. This individual is a MASTER ultra marathon runner who deserves to have the Superman cape on where ever he goes.

His list of achievements so far are enough to fill a book, but he was humble enough to at least provide a few of his accomplishments in ultra marathon running....

• Completed several Marathons
• Completed 3 X Oxfam Trailwalker (100kms)
• Completed Cradle Mountain Run (82kms) - Overland track in Tasmania
• Completed 2 X Buffalo Stampede Sky Ultra Marathon (75kms)
• Ran from Melbourne to Portland (375kms) in 5 days and raised over $20,000 for Cancer research
• Completed the Alpine Challenge 100mile (160kms) race in the Alpine National Park - covering the 4 highest mountains in Victoria
• And an endless list of other distance races both on trail and on the road.

Full of knowledge and skill, this man lives and breathes his talk. If there was ever a person to connect with in terms of improving, providing inspiration on exercise, or learning how to run providing running training or injury prevention ...you can’t go past this master expert for advice.

Shaun Brewster is a Myotherapist and Exercise Physiologist with over 20 years in the industry. In addition to his clinical career, Shaun has also been an educator in tertiary institutions and at conferences. Currently Shaun spreads his time between his company Continuing Education Australia (provider of professional development courses for health practitioners) and his clinical practice Brewster’s Sports Injury Clinic in Melbourne’s inner west.
