All Hail the Kiwiburn Brewers: this event has been most enjoyable and educational for several years now.If you want to get involved clean up your brewing gear and lay something down for us all. As always we will cater for a wide range of brews with classes for Best Beer, Best Wine, Best Mead, Best Spirits, Best Mulled Wine, Best Other, Best Drink you can also fire spin with, and a special mention for ‘Best Drain Cleaner’. We also have a ‘Healthy Options’ section with best Kombucha and best non alcoholic drink. The Plan is to encourage you to bring some of your amazing creations along for our judges (and participants) to sample. As this is Kiwiburn don’t worry that your brew is not good enough, bring it along there will always be other creations far worse than yours, if necessary you can also submit it in a brown paper bag with an assumed name on it. This is all in good fun and it will give you the chance to network with fellow Brewers on our paddock, share some thoughts and ideas, and perhaps you will go home with some ideas to try when you get home. In 2014 we combined our 2 best meads and came up with a very tasty option. In a shock turn in 2016 the same brew won both ‘Crowd choice’ and ‘Best Drain Cleaner’. Beginner Brewers are also encouraged to either give it a go or come along and chat with Brewers about how to do it right. Entry is really simple….. bring your bottle along and give it to the judges. Just make sure you tell us which class you are entering it for. Judges will be chosen from our community for their lack of wit and excellent lack of taste.

Ecstatic Breathing

Location: Town Hall

Time: 7-9:30pm

Breathing consciously in a controlled manner opens up new levels of awareness and helps us go beyond our perceived waking physical reality and experience the transpersonal … the oneness … which is the unifying essence of creation ! We will be exploring different types of breathing, then with the eyes closed and lying on the floor (on a sarong/mat/towel), each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to enter a non-ordinary state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing process of the individual’s psyche, bringing him or her a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process, the quality and content brought forth is unique to each person and for that particular time and place.
