Mieke’s focus is on teeth whitening, general check-ups, crowns and dentures and she has a quick turnaround time for both. She wants to make the dental experience as comfortable as possible for everyone, but especially for children. Her kind, approachable demeanour helps with any anxieties children may have and the experienced dental assistant, Carmen helps to make the patients comfortable and put their minds at ease. The practice is contracted with most medical aids so that is one less thing to worry about. Mieke always goes the extra mile for her patients and makes sure they understand the procedures and when to come for follow up visits.
Our key pillars remain social, environmental & economic resilience. The town will thrive if we are able to bounce back from the many challenges that are thrown at us in these three areas.
We Are White River supports a positive approach to life and connects with the community in a number of ways.
On the 31st December I find a quiet space at home with blank paper and pen. Usually accompanied by a glass of chilled bubbly (it is New Year after all!) Light a candle. The first thing I do is think about what theme I want for the coming year and what my word will be. Then I write myself a letter dated 31st December the following year. So this year’s letter will be dated 31st December 2019. It’s a letter to myself and it’s all about what I have achieved in that year. Now if you think this sounds completely crackpot, let me tell you a story…..
When you feel your process is complete, it’s not something to be rushed and it may take more than just one session, please go with your own intuition as to how this will be for you – you may want to burn both sets of notes. Ritual is a powerful way of releasing. Watch those pages burn and know that you have laid to rest 2018. As the flames burn it all away, feel the release.
This is a gentle reminder that we all have a “fuel tank” of energy and it is not the function of this fuel tank to feed others from it. You feed others from the overflow. That main tank is purely for you and your well-being. It won’t stay filled up if you keep taking from it for others. Eventually it will be depleted.
Currently where we work in developing our small operations, water that has been allocated for agricultural use, is being used to supply local residents in a rural and peri-urban community on the outskirts of White River, this has lead us to develop a risk analysis model for social investment
During an acupuncture treatment, thin needles are inserted into points in the body through the skin. Around the world, a typical treatment will last for 25-30 minutes, but at Shen Centre each treatment lasts 50-60 minutes for better results. Most patients experience the treatment as deeply relaxing and fall asleep.
Starting at the retail end of your venture is the best way to break into any industry, find a product that resembles yours and begin to sell it physically and online. This will provide you with a base line for finding suppliers, customers and realities of your start up. Angel Investment Capital is usually friends, family and frontrunners who invest in you as person rather than your business.
Sadly, the norm these days is the moment something crosses our path that is ‘different’, not up to our expectations or standards, we jump onto the criticise bandwagon. We immediately look for all the faults, all the reasons why it’s just wrong. We don’t hold back in the viciousness of our attacks, which fortunately are often only verbal, but pretty devastating nonetheless and continue to create even more division.
The people of White River are lucky to have a yogini of Denise’s stature in their midst. Don’t you think? We all need to be the best versions of ourselves in order to be better parents, romantic partners, citizens and business people and the mindfulness that comes with the practice of yoga and meditation is one way to connect to that inner power that we all possess within ourselves.
