Didgeridoo Sessions: I sincerely invite you to individual or group one hour didgeridoo sessions.
Didgeridoo or Yidaki, is a traditional brass instrument. Aboriginal believe that the sound of this “windy instrument” created the world and everything in it. Deep vibrations connect us with the power of the Earth. This original, unique sound by tuning to the Earth and to the human body, clears with vibrations that open our chakras. In this way, Yidaki moves us into Unknown, into the dreaming state, that is why Aborigines gave it a nickname: “dreaming a pipe”.
Antique vibrations that are carried by didgeridoo often help us to enter into a deep state of relaxation and trance. These subtle states of consciousness, which we do not experience in every day life, support our ability to listen to our self, body and spirit. We then have the opportunity to discover our original desires, passion, motivation and create, thriving and happy life. It is there, in these deep meditations, that our body releases the vigorous energies, and the vibrations of Yidaki deepen it, allowing us to achieve harmony and balance, which we do not always have access to in daily life.
Investment: Individual – 50 Euros
Groups: 2 persons – 80 Euros, 3-5 persons – 120 Euros,  6-8 persons – 160 Euros
Sign up: meduz10@hotmail.com or you can call me or send me a message via mobile: (0034) 642 56 15 86
Place: You choose the place for the session. It can be your home, garden or a place in the nature where you feel comfortable. There is also a possibility to meet at my place.

PET OWNERS have been warned to keep an eye out for processionary caterpillars after sightings on the Costa del Sol. A local Fuengirola information page has reported on Facebook the sighting of the dangerous caterpillars next to the river between Fuengirola and Los Boliches.
Dogs are particularly susceptible as they will pick up the hairs on their paws and then lick them as they start to itch. This then leads to the hairs being transferred on to the animal’s tongue and can result in itching, swelling, vomiting and even death.
