Enyato Duo presents: Nine Fathom Deep – percussion and woodwind
MAY 24th at 7pm
Join Thea Rossen (Percussion) and Luke Carbon (Bass Clarinet) as they present a program of works that evoke epic journeys on the ocean. With pieces by Samantha Wolff, Toru Takemitsu, Thea Rossen and Elliot Cooper Cole, the program will feature the world premiere of ‘The Sea Meets Infinity’ by Paul Dean, a work commissioned especially for this concert.
The venue with its nautical history, is a unique dome shape that lends itself to an intimate concert experience.
And some in dreams assurèd were
Of the Spirit that plagued us so;
Nine fathom deep he had followed us
From the land of mist and snow.
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Meditating with baby goats – Selling out fast!
Saturdays 1st June to 6th July – various times. See Karmably for further info.
As seen in Style Magazines, Channel 7News, The Courier Mail, Take 5 Magazine and MORE!
Fancy a date that’s always cute n’ cuddly? Join us for the warmest introduction to meditation this Winter!
What to expect:
· Light stretching to still the body
· Sound Mediation to still the mind
· Play! Fluffy cuddles from a furry friend
I know what you’re thinking. “Wait, but why are we meditating with this much cuteness? Won’t I be even MORE distracted?
The short answer is yes. The long answer is that Breathe In & Bleat Out is a metaphor for what meditating actually feels like when you first start. Your first meditation sitting isn’t going to be perfect, and it certainly won’t be still. You’ll have thoughts, feelings, memories and dreams niggling at you, gnawing on you and clamouring for attention.
Just like our furry friends, these cuties nibble, nuzzle, dribble and piddle, but I can promise you won’t get worked up over it. In fact, I can guarantee you’ll leave with nothing but a smile! And maybe a few selfies (Good luck trying to get a baby goat to pose!) Instead of criticising yourself for being unable to sit still in perfect, spiritual silence, you’ll learn to compassionately observe this chaos, embrace the moment and stop kicking yourself for not being so damn perfect all the time.
Why we chose baby goats:
1) Fewer allergies than cats & dogs
2) Cuddling causes warm fuzzy feelings in humans and animals! Whether from our human friends or furry ones, cuddling is proven to release oxytocin, which boosts the immune system, reduces stress and relieves pain! “Oxytocin is a natural stress reliever… it acts on our brain to diminish anxiety and induce relaxation” – Harvard Health Letter.
3) Researchers in the UK have found evidence that goats are just as clever as dogs, and build complex emotional relationships with humans!
4) Stanford PAWS program has been using animal therapy for 20 years to raise the spirits of hospitalised patients. Animal therapy has also been found to reduce cortisol in Autistic children by up to 48%, as well as relieve symptoms of PTSD and schizophrenia.
What is provided:
– Yoga Mat 6mm
– Hand towel
– Organic Cleaner
What you need (Optional):
– Eye mask
– Yoga Props
Your friendly warning: Baby goats don’t have complete control of their bladders & can get super excited without warning! The Karmably Cleaning Crew is always standing by for mishaps, but please come prepared for the worst. AKA go digging for your daggiest gym shirt and throw it over those nice, new tights when the mischief begins!
Our baby goats come from a variety of centres. ABC Animal Farm began their mobile farm service as a means to rescue, feed and rehome neglected, surrendered and abandoned animals. Some of the furbabies in your class are rescues, and others are bred on the farm. Once animals are over 12 months of age, they live out their retirement in families on acreage, and are never returned to the dairy or meat industry.
Please Note: All sales final. No refunds are given. You may sell your tickets and notify us of changes to attendee details. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
See you in the Zen Den!

Discover the Early Origins Exhibition on a self-guided tour of the MtSV.
A wonderful display that was launched in the Centenary year of MtSV, 2017, at its iconic Flinders street address, featuring historical items that represent the early days of the Mission to Seafarers, the Ladies Harbour Lights Guild and the Port of Melbourne. Discovered just over ten years ago beneath the stage of the site’s Flying Angel Club, and painstakingly put together by dedicated historians; Early Origins is a collection of newly-discovered stories of Melbourne’s maritime history.
The exhibition spans the entire operational areas of Mission to Seafarers site, encouraging visitors to explore the premises for themselves; discovering historical gems room-to-room, guided by way-finding signage. Heritage interpretation panels and a number of display cases contain historical artefacts stretching beyond the Mission’s 100 years of operation at its now heritage listed building complex at 717 Flinders Street, purpose built for seafarers in 1917.
Further to its significance of capturing Melbourne’s maritime history, Early Origins represents the largest and most complete collection of material relating to seafarers’ welfare in Australia, as well as largest and most complete collection of material relating to the international organisation The Mission to Seafarers in the country.
“We discovered the items by pure coincidence and when we started cataloguing them. We were captivated by the stories they told about the people who came here. Not just the seamen who were welcomed from across the world, but also the hundreds of volunteers from all walks of life across Victoria”
Early Origins also delves into the foundations, design and construction of the Mission. The heritage-listed complex itself was originally designed in 1913 by esteemed architect Walter Richmond Butler, and is a merging of Arts and Crafts and Spanish Mission Revival architectural styles.
