I have always been doing a lot of social work in Australia as well as overseas for many years.
I regularly conduct the Mindfulness meditation programs at the QE11 community centre, Muswellbrook for the physical and mental wellbeing of people. These workshops are mainly focused on stress and anxiety related therapies pain management for chronic pain, arthritis and osteoarthritic patients, drug related issues, pregnancy stress reduction, smiley babies and happy mother therapy, how school children can reduce stress and focus better, old age, people with special needs, people facing domestic violence etc. Mindfulness is helpful for everyone and for all ages.
I am regularly doing a breakfast radio talk show on ABC Radio and 98.1 FM on Mindfulness for the general wellbeing of listeners. I teach how to live in the present moment fully.
I have presented several dance programs for different organisations. I have been coaching students and teaching different styles of dance so that people get to know the dances from different countries.
I have been involved in theatre and drama acting for many years mostly overseas.
I have done some cooking shows and talked about cultural awareness for people with special needs and we received very good feedback.
I have done cooking demonstrations for the ladies at the QE11 community centre and the multicultural group to bring about cultural awareness and integrate people and bring a harmonious relationship with people.
I am now involved with a new project with colleagues for the Harmony day which will bring all people from different cultural backgrounds together to share their culture and traditions.
I am also presenting a Mindfulness workshop at the Coffs Harbour for the “Rural family network Program” to spread the awareness of “Living in the moment”.
I am on the committee for the Rural Medical Doctors family network program and do mentoring for families.
I am an editor of a newsletter for the Upper hunter community centre.
I am very grateful to the council for nominating me for the Citizen of the year and outstanding contribution to culture awards for the community services offered and I received two citations for my work.
