A big welcome to the new members and families who have recently joined in with our classes and thank you to everyone for your continued support and participation within the Integrated Academy. This newsletter covers some of the recent occurrences and then focuses on some upcoming events to look forward to experiencing in the future.

۞ 21st of December 2017: Congratulations to Gary Hampton and Cody Moras for successfully attaining their Green Belts at the Integrated Martial Arts/Development Academy. Much appreciation to all of the students, families and assistant instructors for sharing your time and support. It was an experience that required both Gary and Cody to dig deep inside themselves for resilience and perseverance and it was inspiring to see them make it through to the end.

Thank you to everyone for being there as I always enjoy presenting the certificates and engraved trophies to all of the students in attendance. Much appreciation to each and every one of you for being an important part of this shared experience of Integrated Self-Development and Martial Arts.

۞ 13th of February: Much appreciation to Matthew Hancock for doing such a great job with Jean's Memorial Display that will be mounted on the wall at the Integrated Centre in Hervey Bay.

Message Of Inspiration

"By becoming still and silent and present within the moment,
you are able to create a spaciousness whereby the natural truth
of Existence can come in and fill the emptiness with the natural
intelligence and spiritual wisdom that pervades the living cosmos."

~ Mick’s random epiphanies of awareness 2018 :)

۞ Thank you once again for your continual support and participation within the Integrated Academy.

May you continue to be uplifted and empowered through Inner Strength, Courage, Truth and Love.

With the Light of Friendship, Harmony and Appreciation,

From Michael )))...
