One Step at a Time

Tessa Jonassen - Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Descending into Hell In July 2014 I was asked, along with my gardening buddy, to go to a property and do some pruning around the creek as it had become overgrown. We set off on that winters day with our secateurs, each with our trusty Ko, a spade or two and a smile on our faces. We were in for a rude awakening at the enormity of the task that was ahead of us. We arrived at the property  ...Read More

Is Your Child Sensitive?

Tessa Jonassen - Thursday, July 17, 2014
Calling all Sensitive Children, Indigo Children, Crystal Children and Star Children and Light Workers of All Ages Our children are so precious and I hear so many stories about how our little ones are finding it difficult to cope with the demands of modern day life. Being exposed to technology, the ups and downs of pre-school and school life, the energies  ...Read More

Comfort Zone or Leap of Faith

Tessa Jonassen - Wednesday, July 02, 2014
It has been so long since I have written on this blog page that it took me some time to figure out where to find the template and how to go about it! It is interesting that I have chosen this time to write as I am sitting in chaos in my home based clinic/healing room trying to get organised for tomorrow. Perhaps I am responding to the moment and wanted to share the experience with you.   ...Read More

Just One Marigold

Tessa Jonassen - Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Just One Marigold Our lavender bushes which had so many bee visitors during the last few months were no longer in flower and so it was time to plant some more flowers to feed the bees. I love to watch the bees go about their business collecting pollen and distributing it to other plants. Their gentle hum on a summer’s day is intoxicating and for me eating honey th  ...Read More

Super Grateful for My Fabulous Life!

Tessa Jonassen - Friday, November 29, 2013
At this time of year when we meet up with friends to for a coffee or glass of wine and a chat we ask each other about what we have been doing. Its sometimes quite hard to remember and today as I sat down to reflect on my year I went through my photos and found these pictures that tell some of my story of 2013. It was so enlightening and satisfying to see that I have had so many wonderful e  ...Read More

Children - Our Biggest Teachers

Tessa Jonassen - Thursday, April 25, 2013
I have heard it said that our children are our greatest teachers and as I walk the path of the 21st Century Apprentice Medicine Woman there are many and varied lessons to learn. Many of the lessons have been highlighted by my children for which I am grateful. I would also say that our children can be our greatest inspiration. I have been a mother for 24 years and my children never cease to  ...Read More

The Apprentice Returns to the Wise Woman

Tessa Jonassen - Tuesday, March 26, 2013
This time last year I was packing my suitcase to journey to the UK to stay with my elderly mother. It was at the beginning of the teachings of the Healers Apprenticeship which was no coincidence as the first teacher plant essence we began working with was the splendid Black Mamaku. The energy of this essence feels to me like the arms of the mother being folded around a child's shoulders when t  ...Read More

Musings of a 21st Century Apprentice Medicine Woman - Celebrating 90 Years of Life

Tessa Jonassen - Friday, November 02, 2012
I am writing this on my mother's 90th birthday and I send her much love and big hugs from my heart to her heart. To some 90 seems very old, but I guess you have to be 90 to know what it feels like. When I, and others, look at Mum we don't see an old lady, we see a lady who is always well groomed and dressed beautifully, well informed and one step ahead of us all! We see more than that, we   ...Read More

Musings of a 21st Century Apprentice Medicine Woman - White Linen Trousers and Sandals

Tessa Jonassen - Thursday, October 18, 2012
Life can change in the blink of an eye or in modern day terms the click of a mouse. The seed of an idea is sown and then one day you wake up and find the seed has grown into a beautiful flower. Ideas, dreams and visualisations are like seeds. You plant them, water them, feed them and then walk away and leave them for a while allowing them to take form. You can't see what is happening under the  ...Read More

A New Level of Gratitude

Tessa Jonassen - Friday, September 14, 2012
After spending the best part of 5 months in the UK with my dear Mum the time came to say goodbye. When I arrived in early April I had no idea how long I would be staying and as the weeks turned into months I was non the wiser. All I knew that it wasn't time to go. The only thing to do was to enjoy being where I was and not worry about the future. A real test of trusting that I was where I was mea  ...Read More
