The Hug that saved a life

It can be difficult to explain it in rational way.
Why does such a simple gesture as a hug from stronger premature twin bring back to life a weaker twin sister, regulating and tuning her heart rate and bringing her back to life
Now they are  teenagers.
Maybe even a believer of rational/academic science can take this topic for a short meditation :)    Click here  to watch this beautiful video that shows the power of touch.

Business plan

Yes, it is a new business plan for "CMC – Hauora lessons NZ nationwide".
 If you are familiar with the old fashioned business plans – with SWAT analysis etc, where you used to spent weeks and months ,
this A4 diagram looks like fun..
It is Canvas business model that I will work on during my 8 week Social Entrepreneur course at the Auckland University of Technology, run by the Auckland City Council .
For me this diagram looks fantastic. I hope that by working on this model during the course, it will bring a solution on how to make our instructors busy delivering CMC nationwide. Our children, and all of us, deserve a professional , evidence based programme that teaches empathy, a foundation for an empathic society.

Massage NZ AGM

Sunday was the AGM for Massage NZ.
It was well organized, and very constructive.   It gave the members an opportunity  to put forward their views on the challenges of the marketplace, and how to become more flexible to meet these demands.
The suggestions were constructive and they were all accepted for immediate action.  Yoka, as president of the organization, is to be congratulated for an outstanding performance.
For Child Connection, it was also a pleasure to meet up with many of its former CMC instructor students.
In the picture - from the left is Yvonne from Nelson, Eva and Lesley from Napier.
