I am currently practicing Remedial Massage, Kundalini Yoga & Lymphatic Drainage full-time and am totally in love with it.
I first fell in love with people when i sat an eye gazing workshop when i was 19 years old, the feeling i felt there led me to see the importance of having my work reflect the best feeling i am capable of experiencing, it's a compass that has never failed me.
I've found giving and receiving massage to be an invaluable tool in entering into a state of vulnerability where growth and healing happens for all people.
I'm so excited to bring you this beautiful gift and for you to be there.
Much love, Beng.
Never would I have ever imagined 5 years ago when I began my journey, that I would be where I am today - in dedicated service of true alignment so that I may share with you the ancient art of Kundalini Yoga, and all that supports a lifestyle of Dharma, from a place of humility and embodiment. It is my deepest intention to wholeheartedly share with you a path of integrity and reverence so you may feel safe, inspired and nurtured to grow and deeply explore your journey, which ultimately is the journey of all. This incredible path we walk is one of such infinite love and limitless potential when consciously stepping forward with presence and patience, and it is in deep communion with our innate wisdom that a purposeful, fulfilling existence is cultivated. An expansive state of unwavering trust and liberated expression is what inspires me to deliver practices that are empowering and activating to you. During these times of confusion, separation and dis-ease, it is our responsibility to allow ourselves to remember the most precious treasures are within, and to return to our most beautiful, peaceful, natural state of radiant love.
Through this project I'm honoured to co-create community and skill sharing focusing on embodied awareness and deep wisdom. I wish to hold a space of joy, light hearted interaction and action; stillness and spaciousness; which honours key values of Dharma through all of our actions and being. 'I' as a community on the micro, creating change on the macro.
Start with self, love all beings.
Only oneself can change their destiny. This project offers me the opportunity to implement change on a community level through offering an immersive experience of powerful connecting yogic practices. My intention is to facilitate practices for this festival that connect community in an embodied fashion and create one-ness of heart space; as individuals maintain the awareness within the framework of their body.
Through this project I am committed to a non-sectarian celebration of the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sanga. May each one of us at this gathering be Buddha; access our deep wisdom, peace, space; our unknowing, and knowing. May each of us live our truth, Our Dharma. May we have the skills to deeply listen to truth of nature; of self; of body; mind; thought; and sensation.
A gathering of Sanga; of community, upon this land we posture. Together sharing our gifts of enlightenment and love; Peace, Space; Metta. We are blessed to have access to many ancient teachings. Through integrating these teachings as community we can explore our interactions, non-cognitive selves and our sharing of gifts together. Through gathering and practicing together we can increase our capacity of ‘being’ in the world.
Community of earth
Community of heart
Community of love
Community of well being
through care for oneself, for others, for the earth and all that is.
This festival gives us the opportunity to live as a community of light, together activated in truth.
It is not about if you can or cannot do it, it is how you are when you are in it. That makes every moment moving through life a tool to elevate the sanctuary of the heart into every breathe.
Too long has there been pressure on how we are meant to be or how the "i" would like it to be. When the focus is shifted to see into everything as it is, without the distortion of any conditioning, we notice that at the core of all nature is a Buddha, a Christ or pure awareness. This awareness has never left us, awaiting for the individual to trust and full embody it, living day to day in synchronicity with our true nature, our highest potential.
I am a student and teacher of Kundalini Yoga, Vinyassa Yoga and Meditation. Refreshed by on-going travels inward and outward discovering the roots of Self and Yoga. The spontaneous energy that arises, is to share a fresh modern outlook on the ancient traditions through the practise and service to the teachings of true wisdom.

Bliss Dance and Sound Journey
Allowing the hands to meet in front of the heart, we start with closing down the eyes, and journeying within.
As we travel we connect with the two powerful life-forces within, the feminine as she rises - intuition, powerful magnetic flow ~ the moon, drawing, naturally that to you which expands your heart, and fills you with Ananda - joy.
And prepare to meet her with the masculine within - Focus, the sun, Harnessing the fire within to create ~ that which fills our heart with Ananda.
Allowing the two to meet, ignite each other and dance together as the dance and festival progresses.
Join me for the Dance of Ananda - the intuitive dance within - expressed as the movement and dance of the body mind and spirit
The celebration of your unique essence and the one-ness with all of creation
See you there for an incredible festival and journey beautiful souls
With my love Xx

Ian and Tracy
From oneness we experience duality, from duality we experience oneness, not two, not one, and here we are. Hello, it’s Tracy and Ian from Being the One here and we are looking forward to being part of this wonderful festival.
Here’s what we are about:
For those on the spiritual path we come to realise our true nature, we see into the oneness of Being and we also become more astutely aware of our identity, our individuality and uniqueness and how our psyche plays out in everyday life and in moments of truth.
At Being the One we have created a simple model for understanding the patterns that we play out that limit us and keep us corralled into limited ways of being. It’s simple and extremely profound as it captures how these patterns can sabotage our relationship to ourselves and others as well as our desires, dreams, ambitions even our spiritual path. For us these realisations are the journey, the path, the way.
We have spent more than 40 years delving into our own nature and have journeyed to the depths of our being to bring up what are the commonalities for all human beings to address.
Our individual paths were very different, in fact we came from opposite directions, Tracy studied Energetic Healing at the Berkeley Institute in California and Ian came from a background in High Performance Leadership, Coaching and Transformational Work. Yet we realised early when meeting each other, that we were committed to the same mission; To provide Healing, Ignite Passion and Inspire Greatness with everyone we meet.
We look forward to sharing our discoveries and work with you.
