Living a day to day life is hard sometimes and you must take a break for restarting the life in a refreshed mood. Many find it absurd and to some extent impossible for a person to spare a moment in the present scenario.
We, on the other hand, do travel a lot especially in West Australia (W.A). Our group consists of 5 family members. This time we decided to head towards Perth for not less than 7 days stay. Read more

Boshack Outback was the first Australian venue to host Passed Thru Fire Experience. This is a Christ centred organisation which focuses on re-uniting of families through the hearts of Men, Fathers, Sons and Boys.

Passed Thru Fire originated in South Africa and the idea came from the book “The Passed Thru Fire Experience” written by Rick Bundshuh. Ric attended this first camp in Australia. The first event was hosted in a small community game farm in South Africa with 7 boys and 5 dads attending. Read more

Ten steps to create a healthy vegetable patch

VEGETABLE PATCHDr Ross Mars is a well know teacher and permaculture expert who spent time at Boshack Outback. During his stay we he helped us to create a healthy vegetable patch. Here is what we learned during his stay.

  1. The vegetable patch base can be raised or lowered depending on your preference. If you create a raised patch it is recommended that you have raised wall.
  2. Try and make the base 1.2 metres wide at the most
  3. You need wettable soil to successfully grow vegetables. To test the soil pour a cup of water into a small hole, if you can count to 10 before the water is completely absorbed then it is not to satisfaction.
  4. Use non wetting soil – wax
  5. Choose your preferred vegetables and fruit.
  6. Do not plant the same things too close together as they attract insects
  7. Plant tall plants as shade
  8. When planting, push soil against roots to minimise oxygen around roots as they dry out
  9.    Drown plants in water before planting and separate the plants.
  10. Use cross sticks to train plants to grow up

Tips

  •         Don’t plant Kale and Broccoli in rows. Mix it up to disguise plants from bugs, butterflies and other pesticides.
  •         Tomato works well with basil

We are grateful to have Dr Ross come and help us set up our garden as we are able to use the plants in our cooking. Our vegetable patch is now thriving!

Yoga Retreat – Farmstay Perth

12967507_10153621594678041_9089442400483065822_oRecently we held a Yoga/Meditation/Nutrition Retreat overlooking the lake which is the perfect place to be in the moment and enjoy nature. Satyen was the instructor and he is extremely knowledgeable as he is a medical doctor and Yoga teacher. Satyen is known for his unconventional teaching style, passion, dedication, with a profound knowledge in the vast field of yoga and nutrition. He also has a good sense of humour which made for a fun weekend.

The weekend started with everyone arriving on the Friday afternoon and settling into their accommodation. A quick welcome followed by a delicious vegetarian meal. Then we were straight into learning about deep relaxation techniques. The perfect way to wind down before bed, drifting off to sleep while listen the sounds of the bush.

Saturday was a full day learning many different techniques and all about nutrition. The day included light stretching, meditation, yoga, yogic breaching exercises, mantras (sound vibrations) and nutrition.

The yoga practise catered to everyone as it suited every level from the beginner to the advanced. Yogic breathing techniques energised the body and balanced emotions.

Sunday started with light stretching, meditation, yoga and lots more information on nutrition. We ended the weekend in a closing circle and everyone really enjoyed the weekend.

Yoga and meditation are great ways to slow down, quieten the mind, strengthen the body and bringing our minds into present time. It was a successful weekend with delicious vegetarian meals and the outlook onto the lake was a perfect backdrop to do our yoga practice.
