Learning about body language over Thai food at Mary’s

Saturday’s Introductory Workshop on Body Language and Human Relations with Psychotherapist Louiza Michael was a particularly ‘chatty’ one. And particularly exciting in that half of the 10 participants were first time guests. Nationalities included the ‘usual mix’ of British, British-Cypriot, German, and this time an interesting mix of American-Cypriot, French-Cypriot and Armenian-Lebanese.
All the participants were women and the atmosphere very cozy from the beginning as we started off in the ‘couch area’, sipping a strawberry punch, getting to know each other. I had prepared our buffet dinner ahead of time so I too would be able to participate.

Tales of a Jazz Singer - Frankie's Social

jazz singer sarah fenwick

When I started out singing jazz in Cyprus 20 years ago, I had a pre-conceived idea of the places I would sing in; they'd be classy, jazzy; subdued lighting; great service; and respect for the talents in jazz entertainment like Frank Sinatra.

The reality 20 years ago was that those places didn't exist, except for the occasional surprise like the Cotton Club owned by Akis Pharmakalides in Nicosia and the Paddock Bar in the Hilton Hotel, both of which I sang in for several years at the beginning of my career.

Demystifying numerology and crystals at Mary’s

This week’s events on Wednesday and Thursday were a special honor to host as our speaker had come from Hungary to share his knowledge with us. Benny Vervliet is a Numerologist and fourth generation Crystal Therapist, born in Belgium he currently lives in Budapest. Benny has been coming to the island for 14 years and is well known and much loved by many regulars of the island’s Mind Body Spirit Festivals. He’s a treat to be around with his brilliant sense of humor and down to earth attitude and of course his in-depth knowledge!

During Wednesday’s numerology workshop people
found out about their strengths and weaknesses and why they get along with some and not with others. They discovered talents and among many other things found out about ways of getting rid of stress. Participants calculated their own numerology and those of their loved ones and all 13 of them were intensively involved in discussions and calculations from beginning to end.

At Home With Pets - Natural Ways to Keep Your Pets Flea-Free

anna georghallidesBy Anna Georghallides

Hello and welcome to ‘At Home with Pets’. I was delighted when asked to write a weekly blog on animal welfare by Cyprus News Report. As many of you know the animal situation on the island is pretty dismal and whenever possible we want to do what we can to help. ‘Why you?’ I hear you ask; well let me tell you a bit about myself.

Apart from being a photographer and fundraising event organizer I’ve been involved in animal rescue for the better part of 20 years. I have fostered for various organizations and have dealt with many animals needing serious medical and emotional care from severe separation anxiety to paralysis, amputations, blindness, skin disorders – you name it, we’ve probably dealt with it! I also ran a shelter at one point but that’s a whole other story!

A stylish weekend at Mary's

This weekend we had yet another exciting first - a 'styling marathon' - a two-day workshop at Mary’s held by stylist and image maker Karina Nesterova from Fancy Shmancy in Moscow. The workshop welcomed ten Russian-speaking participants and the set-up included a projector, a large mirror and a table covered in plastic table cloth for painting. 

As my Russian is only at a basic level I only stayed during break time and lunch time but could certainly feel the excitement and anticipation as guests arrived on Saturday morning and introduced themselves.
Karina, a former ‘Limassolian’, briefed me on the contents: The first day was based on colours; participants found out about warm and cold colours and which suited which type.
