Greetings Adventurers

Happy 2009, it has certainly begun with a bang. The energies of change and the power of the moment are all around us. According to the Mayan Calendar we are at the end of the fifth night of power where everything goes a bit topsy-turvy for those who are stuck in a rut. For those who are learning to be in the moment and who are becoming conscious that they consciously create their reality, well the positive possibilities for change have just increased infinitely. For those obsessed with the past and material existence only, the pressure just went up a couple of hundred degrees.

This includes most of the powers that be, hence their desperate attempts to place your attention on things that are not worth bothering about too much. Now that does not mean being ignorant and blind to what is going on around us. One of the greatest lessons I ever received was being given the task to observe the news once or twice a week. It is foolish to not know what is going on in your world. But it is even more foolish to take that news too seriously.

Dream Symbols and Intuition

We received a fantastic page this week that really exposes just how this all works. Our dream journo Colin has shared a poignant and fun tale about certain excursions he has been making during his night-dreams. He shows us how easy it really is to overcome our self-importance, which is the aspect responsible for too much seriousness. He also shows how powerful night-dreams are as an ally in assisting us to tap into our intuition. It is a fun and really informative page.

The Mayan Calendar

If you have not watched the Mayan Calendar series by Iain Lungold yet, may I suggest that you get a copy. Iain says on the DVD he has only one copyright law and that is “Copy it right and then give it to everyone you know.” In this series of lectures Iain explains very clearly the terrain that we are headed for. Well it is now the terrain we are actually in. We are in the time of no time as the Mayans and others have called it. Soon we will be right in the middle of the most exciting period of human existence and your intellect doesn’t have what it takes to pass through it, only your intuition has the tools required. See later in this newsletter some of the people offering the minimal chance to tap into the incredible resource that is your intuition.

The Relaxation Meditation

Again our timing at Adventure Learning seems to be impeccable. Why? This newsletter we are launching the most Powerful Relaxation Meditation of All. If you click through to you will find this powerful guided meditation as a free download. If you like you can stream it too. Take the time to pay it forward to a few people, remember daring to share is the first step toward acknowledging your own abundance. We are also launching the first six mediation music tracks mixed by our master muso. These will be available for purchase within the next month, but for now you can hear an excerpt from each track on So there may be craziness in the Middle East, but we are focused on giving you the tools to deal with it and to be a centre of calm in the ever-increasing whirl-wind that is reality right now. Phew what a mouthful.

Meet the Adventure Learning Guide

This month we will also be introducing you to Patches. Some of you have met him before. But Patches is now moving into Cyber Space as the Adventure Learning Initiatives Adventure Guide. He will be here to assist you with tit-bits of information and occasionally might pop in your emails to let you know about new and exciting offerings at Adventure Learning.

To the Mentors and Artists

To all the artists and mentors that have contributed so far we would like to express our appreciation to you. Thank you for daring to share. So far our poetry section of the site is growing rapidly, we would also like to see some graphic art and photography on the site, so if you or a friend would like to showcase some work don’t hesitate to submit it at Creative Labs Exhibitionists. We have also brought back the Adventure Stories Submission page, see further down for details.

We have had a good response to the service masters page as well and you can now find people who are offering their services and products on pages throughout the site.

Please note that if you are visiting pages that you have been to before ensure that you have cleared your history files in your browser, otherwise you may miss the updates on the page. Another option is to refresh the page if it still looks like it did the last time you visited the page.

So enjoy the newsletter. Without further Ado heeeeeerrrrrre’s Patches…

Intuitive Meditation Music

There has been quite a buzzzz about the new Adventure Learning Initiative called Meditate On It. The biggest question on everyone’s lips was ‘Where is the MUSIC?’ Well it has arrived. Read the conceptual introduction to the music. See the first six intuitive musical tracks from our Maestro Andrew. These will soon be available for purchase from


GRACE : Imagine green fields, a rainy sky and slowly but surely the sun starts peeking through the clouds and warming the cool, wet earth.

DIDGERIDREAMS: A homage to the Aboriginal 'Dream Time' and Altjeringa.

ANCESTRAL is a fusion of the Didgeridoo and Tibetan Bells, blended with a smooth ambient synth. This track is a doorway into the realms of deep relaxation and crystal clear perception.

UNNAMED: A harmonic guitar piece that takes you on a journey of inner wonder and love.

INNER CHILD captures the essence of the playful and warm nature of your inner child through gentle, melodic guitar.

SYMPHONY OF DREAMS is inspired by inspiration itself. Break through to new and elegant levels of perception!

The Now Ten Commandments Update – Get them in Spanish

The Now Ten Commandments can now also be seen in Spanish. Once again we invite you to translate them into your own language. Currently we have them available in English, French, Russian and now Spanish.

Power of Poetry

It is said that some of the closest people to the divine are the poets. Take a look at the largest growing area in the Creative Labs and see for yourself. There is the distilled elegance of the Haiku’s on Mystery Poet Maya. The tenderness of Inspirational Poetry of Love. The humour and power of the Metaphysical Poets Corner. And the lyrical joy of the Carefree Poets Cove.

A reminder for those of you who are poets, if you have works that you would like to publish submit them at the Creative Labs Submissions. If you have 20 poems or more you can publish them with us as a collected works e-book email: for more details.


Michael Corcoran ‘Walking on Air’

Meet Michael Corcoran the master poet who has blended the inner realms of the metaphysical and poetry in his first book ‘Walking on Air.’ The poems are inspired by the Tarot. Through Michael’s mastery of verse and clarity of intuition he has produced a work that is as magical and powerful as the Tarot itself.

One reader has said: ‘Any time one reads a poem, especially a poem such as these, it opens a portal into the inner world where you can discover more of yourself.’

Introducing Ruby de Vere’s ‘Postcards from Earth’

Postcards from Earth is a powerful, intimate and inspiring tale of one woman’s journey towards freedom and wisdom. Ruby de Vere’s honest and objective account about a life dedicated to growth is a beacon of hope for all.

This book itself is a course on freedom and self-mastery. Ruby introduces us to great teachers in all guises and of course to the greatest teacher of all, Life. Download the first chapter for free at Adventure Learning.

Keep an eye out for Patches to find out when you can purchase your own copy of this companion to self-mastery and magic.

The Tale of Two Medieval Monks

Read the tale of the Two Medieval Monks and ponder on the question at the end. The trick is to work with your intuition not your intellect…
