Esoteric Women's Health Newsletter August 2018
Welcome to our August newsletter where we explore the topic of Purpose.
Are we just 'going through the motions' in our lives, or do we deeply appreciate what we offer when we do whatever it is that we do? Whether it is being in the workplace, caring for children, in the community, in our households/families – what we do is important and it makes a difference. When we understand that what we do has a purpose, it can change the way we feel about our day.
If you wake in the morning knowing that there is lots to do that supports your life and the lives of others, how would that change the way you feel about yourself and your day? If you go to bed at night knowing that you have contributed, that who you are and how you are and what you do has made a difference, how would that be?
What if we could appreciate that there is a joy in working, in looking after kids, in contributing, in everything we do each day – when we realise how everything we do fits into the whole and is important, we understand the purpose in our day.
"We are designed to have purpose in life, to dedicate ourselves to humanity, to work together, to evolve together."Serge Benhayon
Below you will also find details of upcoming events including Breast Cancer Care Retreats, Well-being for Women presentations and online or in person Esoteric Yoga classes.
Please enjoy our newsletter and understand that you play a very important part in the whole.

Why do we get out of bed?
Do you ever feel like you are just going through the motions in your daily life – going to work, dealing with traffic, cooking dinner, caring for kids, shopping, washing, cleaning, etc – and then getting up the next day to do it all again . . .
Have you ever asked the question – what is it all for?
At times we can question our life or feel disheartened without a full appreciation of what it is that we actually offer – have you ever reflected on just how much it is that you offer when you do whatever you do, and how important your contribution is to the whole? What if there was a much deeper purpose for everything that we do?
"By changing the way we see our contribution to the whole we can bring a depth of joy to our everyday – with an understanding that what we do has a purpose, and it makes a difference."
Natalie Benhayon, founder of Esoteric Women's Health, speaks about the difference between routine and rhythm, and why it is that finding your own rhythm supports you to live a purpose-full life.
Work – the binding factor in our society
Imagine if we all loved work because we feel there is a purpose to it – the purpose of bringing that unique part of us that is so needed to make the world a better place for us all.
"There is a bigger picture to look at as we are all invaluable parts of the whole and in that, all our contributions matter and are needed to make life work."
A Life of Purpose
"Can you imagine the potential we would have if we had a whole workforce with the same motivation – not to earn more money or retire early, but a wanting to work to make a positive difference in the world because of the work they do?"
"No one (job) is more or less important than another, each job bringing something very needed to the world without which the world couldn’t run.”
Is that all there is?
This article looks at the deep discontentment many people feel and try to fill with all kinds of behaviours, possessions, work, foods, beverages, you name it – the article exposes what is the real cause of the void.
"We may be getting somewhere here – that the existence of the void could have something to do with connection, people, and our purpose here."
Why retire? Does it truly serve the individual who retires, and the workforce they leave?
"Would it not then be absolutely natural for us all to work in a productive capacity right up to the time when our physical bodies were no longer able to, and to then graciously leave our workplace knowing we had served and supported others almost right to our last breath?"
A True Woman
It’s like there is a list that society has written if you are to be a woman that goes a little like this:
- Be skinny
- Find a partner
- Have children
- Always do things for others before yourself . . .
"I have struggled being a woman and I know I am not alone in this. I was longing to be whole again and I knew that I had to change but didn’t know how."
When we feel that our work is only about doing what we 'have to do' so that one day we will retire to enjoy life more, we are potentially blind to the true value of our contribution.
"Who we are at work and how we go about our work is valuable beyond measure and matters to our clients, colleagues and our communities. Only when we stop to understand and appreciate the value of what we ourselves, or workmates, bring to our work more fully, will our attitudes and beliefs about the purpose of work and the real difference we make begin to change."
"Purpose is the answer. And true purpose takes time to develop. We are designed to have purpose in life, to dedicate ourselves to humanity, to work together, to evolve together."Serge Benhayon
THE MAKING OF UNIMED LIVING
The Making of Unimed Living
Unimed Living – The Website – represents the power of 250+ people working together with higher purpose as their foundation, to serve mankind through shared experiences.
Unimed Living is a website containing over 1500 articles, audios, and videos, created by people living in different parts of the globe who have come together for the purpose of presenting, via this website, their experiences of the Ageless Wisdom and how this can be applied to everyday living.
To achieve this output of Unimed Living, the students of Universal Medicine are continually bringing together teams of people that work as a group and collaborate to deliver what is needed.
The group working together is equally important, if not more so, to the actual output that is produced – because we know for a fact that the quality of the group that we together make is going to be the quality of the product we send out to the world, in this case, the website that you get to read and experience.
"This is the beginning of a very long, infinite journey. We are presenting to the people who would like to change their way of living." ~ Neil Gamble, founding member Unimed Living
Unimed Living Work
UniMed Living Work shines the light on the fact that we innately love to work and enjoy the responsibility and commitment that being part of the workforce offers. So why has work become something to endure, survive and retire from? Why don’t we love our job? What is the purpose of working?
"We have an amazing capacity to work and are designed to work. When there is purpose to our daily activity that stretches beyond our own comforts and into the realm of service, dedication and care for all, there is vitality and joy experienced in working."
The Truly Deeply Beautiful video shares the stories of women who, while society is asking them to live a certain way, are making choices to care for, honour and respect themselves – showing there is a way to live free of the intensities and pressures of human life, instead with a richness and a purpose to life.
Women have discovered a deeper connection with themselves, enjoying the beauty of being deeply connected to their essence. This video reflects on what women are feeling in today’s society and how they can choose to live with true well-being.

WELL-BEING FOR WOMEN PRESENTATIONS
Well-being for Women events are regular presentations held world-wide where we explore what health and well-being truly means, discussing a range of topics that are relevant to women today – relationships, work, self-care, diet, self-love, intimacy, self-worth, etc.
Breast Cancer Care One Day Retreats
Sunday, 9th September 2018 – Sydney
Sunday, 4th November 2018 – Wollongbar, Northern NSW
The Breast Cancer Care Retreats are for women who currently or previously have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and their carers and/or partners – the retreats offer an opportunity to stop and reflect on how we have been living, as well as a day of deep nurturing, care and support.
These retreats offer an opportunity to share our wisdom to support the potential healing process by:
- Understanding each woman already holds the key to her own healing
- Exploring why we find it difficult to put ourselves first
- Experiencing gentle hands on healing and other practical tools that support us to deeply rest and listen to the body’s inner wisdom
- Hearing from women who have changed their lives after a breast cancer diagnosis
- Appreciating how to make self-nurturing choices part of our daily routine
*Please note that no medical advice is given at the retreat.
Review of Women in Livingness Workshop held on 8th July 2018
The Women in Livingness – Understanding Self Worth workshop was held in July 2018 in Brisbane and for the 170 women attending in person and for the 250+ women attending via webcast at 75 locations around the world, what was presented by EWH founder Natalie Benhayon proved to be very powerful.
On our website you can read a writeup from one of the attendees of the workshop, titled Embracing Self-Worth.
"We were given examples and tools to take with us so we could learn to bring a quality to everything we do in our lives, be it how we are with sleep, bathing, diet, exercise, relationships, parenting, work, health, etc."
"What I took away from the day was learning to say no when I feel exhausted; listening to my body, developing the sensitivity in the detail to self-nurturing and be pedantic about it, taking the activation of quality to everything I do and never let my standards drop, accept nothing less and be a role model for others to see and feel my sacredness."
Another great writeup of the day is titled Understanding Self-Worth – not just a buzzword but a pathway to Sacredness, starting with:
"#Self-Love, #Self-Care, #Self-Nurturing, #Self-Worth. These all seem to be the current buzz words being wielded at women in this current social media driven climate. But do we as women really have a true understanding of what these terms actually mean? What does true self-love, self-care, self-nurturing and self-worth look like as an everyday way of living?"
Our next workshop will be in Brisbane in February 2019 – stay tuned for more details or see the website.
The purpose of Esoteric Yoga is to return us to our natural way of living in connection with our body, our movements, our expression, our feelings and what is happening within us.
Our bodies speak to us every single moment of every single day. They let us know when we are tired, they let us know when we are holding tensions and stress, they let us know at times through illness and accident, that we need to take stock, and take far deeper care than we well may have been honouring.
Through our own experience, we then learn to honour the body’s voice, so we may deepen our awareness of not only our bodies, but how we – as the ‘beings’ that run them – are in relationship with ourselves, with life and with the all of which we are ever an integral part.
This is Living Yoga . . .
Esoteric Yoga classes are available online, in person, in private and in the workplace.
SPOTLIGHT ON PRACTITIONER
Amita Khurana is the founder and principal therapist at her beauty and wellness clinic, Pure Harmony based at the Grange Hotel in Suffolk, UK. Amita also works at the Spherical Living Complementary Health Clinic in London.
Pure Harmony bases its ethos on the principles of The Way of the Livingness as presented by Universal Medicine, knowing that the quality of our daily life choices are key to us living a vital, healthy and harmonious life as well as having a direct impact on our environment and our every interaction. With this understanding, Amita lives in a way that truly supports her to continuously deepen her foundation of self-care and self-responsibility in her daily life. Her openness, dedication and commitment introduce a fresh perspective and depth of lived experience that powerfully assists others to deepen their inner connection and healing journey.
Amita's own journey has been one of learning about health through her own heath experiences. Working 2 jobs and becoming very tired and exhausted, Amita soon realised that all the knowledge she had gained in the health industry was not working – something was missing and she was getting worse, suffering with exhaustion and sugar cravings. She was also determined to start a family, but due to her exhausted body nothing was working, including IVF’s that failed. This is when it truly hit her that something had to change.
Amita came across Esoteric Women’s Health and was determined to get her life back into balance. She started attending regular Esoteric Women’s Health presentations and workshops. She then committed herself to a healing program to tackle her exhaustion, endometriosis and underactive thyroid. All these conditions had only surfaced due to the impact of the exhaustion on the body.
Through the determination and commitment to heal and with the support of Esoteric Women’s Health, Amita turned her life around. Her exhaustion faded away, and as her body started to regain its balance so too did her signs of endometriosis and underactive thyroid. Amita says her body now feels and looks younger than when she was in her twenties, she is now in her forties.
Amita still runs a busy hotel and is also committed to giving back to other women/men as a practitioner in Esoteric Healing modalities, Beauty Facials with Energetic Facial Release, Body Massages and Detoxify Body Wraps.
Amita has no words to describe the depth of appreciation she has for Esoteric Women’s Health as it turned her life around and supported her to be the loving joyous person she is today. Due to her experience, she feels she now has greater purpose and responsibility to share her journey with others as a support.
