She is offering either 15 minutes (15 units) or 30 minutes (30 units) relaxation massage (Swedish ) Or 30 minute Remedial ( 40 units) as 15 mintues isn’t enough time to do a remedial massage.The relaxation massages are low risk, but the remedial ones she will have to do a little bit of questioning and perhaps some assessments beforehand but that shouldn’t take too long
Shonika would also like some time to look around.

Advisory Body meeting @ Meeting Room 2A State Library of Queensland
Dec 20 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

BrisLETS Advisory Body

This is a think tank for members and potential members who are interested in deepening their knowledge of mutual credit and monetary systems and how to run an exchange in order to provide a resource of advice for community exchanges everywhere.

The study group will meet at 10am in Meeting Room 2A, State Library and also visit The Brisbane Tool Library or upstairs, finish at noon when some of us can go on to lunch somewhere nearby.

I’ve suggested we discuss the concept and role of the Advisory Body first, which shouldn’t take long (?).
Then we can choose a topic. Here are some ideas;
– is there an infinite supply of Units, or must they balance out? 
– how is mutual credit different to cryptos and fiat debt-based money 
– managing a CES/LETS exchange (Skype/Zoom with fnqces Bel Moore) 
– how is mutual credit valued and how do we make it valuable?
Personally, I’d prefer no formality or record-keeping in this group. I’d like to do it the Druid way, like a council of the ‘wise’ – all in our heads!

South Hub Day – Summer Solstice Celebration @ St David's Neighbourhood Centre
Dec 23 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Summer Solstice – the middle of Summer
A natural alternative to Christmas

Come together to mark the season with friends, food, games and music,
especially if you love those old-time sing-a-long favorites

12pm Arrival and Meditation with Brother Joe. Before lunch, let’s contemplate the seasons in meditation before lunch.

1pm Shared lunch Meet and greet members in your Area. Learn and trade a bit. Feel free to bring anything you want to trade, be it food, services or goods. If you’re selling food, a nice thing to do is offer samples for lunch.

Park and enter on Rookwood Avenue. This is a great venue St Davids offers us in return for some favours like some gardening. Their indoor hall has a kitchenette, tv screen & piano, out door area and playground for kids.

This South Hub Day is usually on the 1st Sunday of the month, but as the 1 – 7 December is a BrisLETS holiday, it has been changed.

Any member can create a Hub event like this and have it advertised in the Events Update email and on the website. This event can be replicated by any BrisLETS member by logging into CES and finding your neighbours in the Members Map. We have Tips for Hub Days to help you.
