Shirley's work has been published in several literary journals and anthologies and she recently received the third prize in the 2017 Dalro Poetry Awards. She has been running poetry writing workshops in the Eastern Cape and Johannesburg since 2016. The workshops usually run over six weeks, with participants meeting once a week for two hours. She hopes to run weekend poetry retreats at Hoekiesdam and other venues in the Western Cape, and also to continue offering six-week workshops to anyone who may be interested in learning to write poetry or improve their writing skills.
Hennie moved to Hoekiesdam in April 2019.
He is busy upgrading the workshop and converting part of it into a woodwork shop, where he will be manufacturing wooden developmental toys and domestic accessories for sale under the Afrikara umbrella.
Once the workshop is fully functional, he aims to offer training in woodwork.
Both the Tarot and I-Ching can successfully be used as tools to encourage and empower people to take right action and make right decisions for their lives, by highlighting possibilities and concerns and bringing ideas and suggestions into play that may otherwise not have been considered. Shirley has successfully been reading the Tarot for herself, and for friends and family, for many years. More recently, she was introduced to the I-Ching, and has found combination Tarot-I-Ching readings to be incredibly helpful and insightful, to the extent that long-standing clients have urged her to start doing readings professionally.

Using the chakras and minor chakras as gateways, Body Alignment seeks to address energetic imbalances on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. It works at the root cause of issues, with the permission and guidance of the client's Higher Self. The facilitator, or practitioner, locates specific body points to access the energy fields of systems and organs in the body, linking to and releasing, energy blockages in the physical and supersensible bodies.
Shirley is a qualified Body Alignment practitioner and can be WhatsApped on 082 928 8671 for more information and/or to book an appointment.
