Creating healthier, carbon-zero homes

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, there are few Kiwis who haven't experienced cold or damp housing at some point in New Zealand, whatever part of the country you call home. So what's being done to change that for future generations?

Michelle of Colour Our Story and Brian of Conscious Action are coming together for a Purposeful and Joyful Sunday afternoon filled with global connection, mindfulness and creativity.

Colour Our Story facilitates the creation of colouring-in books by children for children across the World. These books are designed to empower, inspire and create a real sense of connection and global citizenship through the magical and therapeutic powers of storytelling and creativity.

Conscious Action facilitates spaces to raise awareness and inspire meaningful action on topics that range from sustainability to wellbeing and everything related to conscious living.

Once again Colour Our Story has a beautiful collection of drawings and stories, this time collected from children in Bali and Aotearoa. And you will get to view them first before they go into our special colouring in books with stories.

In addition you will get to enjoy the creative therapy of tracing the children's drawings, which is part of our creative bookmaking process, while soaking in some mindfulness moments with Brian as well as some delicious nibbles, mulled wine, non alcoholic drinks, relaxing music and of course the beautiful company of each other as you get to know the children through their artworks.

When the winter sets in, its lovely to treat yourself to small delights that make each day feel good.  Having a room that smells nice is really welcoming and calming to your senses.

In the month of July, any new neighbourly bookings for a Zen Thai Shiatsu 1.5 hour Treatment at Fluid and Bones receive a beautiful Earth Candle from the makers in Matakana.

Awaken and align your body with this exceptional treatment. Zen Thai Shiatsu addresses the body's needs by drawing on the Traditional Energetic based systems of Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai Massage and the remediation techniques of Osteopathy. By the integration of the prime aspects of the modalities and the creation of a safe, awake and caring healing environment, Zen Thai has evolved to be widely recognised as an effective structural and energetic form of therapy.

This is a movement based therapy with a reputation of effectively dealing with issues of the muscular-skeletal , digestive and nervous system.

The Earth Candles have beautiful delicate fragrances, and I love that they are up cycling wine bottles to create their candles.    

Fragrances to choose from include
Raglan Vibes
Cape Reinga Cliffs
Cooks Candle


One per person.  1.5hr Treatments Only
Available for Treatments in July.
Fluid and Bones is the home studio of Pilates, Shiatsu and Cranial Practitioner Clare Luiten

This National Volunteer Week, we’re recognising all the amazing volunteers who form the backbone of emergency response in Aotearoa and support their communites every day.
THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
When Aotearoa faces challenging times, Kiwis always step up to support people in need. Volunteers are instrumental in ensuring that we get through, together.

“Every day, a network of 11,000 Red Cross volunteers and members across the country help us respond to disasters, settle new Kiwis, help run our shops, deliver Meals on Wheels, teach former refugees how to drive, sew curtains for families in need, and so much more. Last financial year, Red Cross volunteers gave close to 120,000 hours of their time. They are the hands and feet of almost everything we accomplish,” says Niamh Lawless, our Secretary General.

Concrete Driveway Finishes

Residential driveways require design and construction and consideration needs to be given around type of finish.

Driveway finishes can include options such as broom or exposed aggregate.

Broom Finish:

A smooth concrete surface finish will be treacherous to walk on if it is wet or frosty and evermore so if there is a slope. A light broom finish provides some skid resistance.

Exposed Aggregate Finish:

Exposed Aggregates are achieved by washing away the top layer of concrete to leave the surface layer of aggregate exposed. Pebbles for this type of finish are sourced locally from regions throughout New Zealand and each has its own unique mix and “local” look.

If you have a concrete project in mind feel free to drop us a line.
