DYER’S LATEST E-BOOK
“THE LITTLE BOOK OF GREAT UNDERSTANDINGS”
GREAT VALUE AT $9.95 BUT YOURS
When I was a teenager, if
someone asked me “what do you want to do when
you leave school?” I remember saying “I don’t
know, but I just want to help people”. Then
after the suicide of my brother Mick when I was
16 and he was 24, I went into the pits of
darkness for a few years. I took drugs and
alcohol to numb the deep anguish inside myself.
Then, when I was about 19, I recognised that I
hadn’t actually grieved for my brother. The
years I spent trying to numb the pain I had
simply avoided really feeling it. At this time,
I began my search for understanding…. about life
and about death and the possibility of
reincarnation and spirit. I read everything I
could that helped me to learn. No-one around me
at that time understood my need to learn the
truth of my existence. “What’s it all about?”
was my mantra!
My life now is simply an unfolding of myself….
like the petals of a flower coming into its own
beauty by gently unfolding layer upon layer. I
have learned lots of wisdoms from many teachers,
but always my best teachers have been my family
and friends! One of my son’s has asperges/autism
and I have to say that it has been a gift to me
to have raised a son who thinks differently to
me. He has challenged me – and helped me to
learn many different lessons. Having a step
daughter has also been a wonderful gift and has
taught me many things too. I am SO lucky to have
our 3 beautiful children in my life! And I am
proud of each one of them. It is so wonderful to
watch them grow into their own selves!!
Most afternoons you will find me in Artland,
teaching art and hopefully inspiring others to
express themselves using different art
techniques. Art has been healing for me in my
life and I hope to pass that on to others. I am
also busy as Heartland’s hostess and I
especially love to see our guests relax once
they get here and feel the peace & harmony that
I feel very blessed being here at Heartland and
living & working with my husband 24/7. He is my
Viv retired after 4 years of
wonderful cooking for us and our guests at
Heartland, we remained calm knowing that the
Universe would guide the right person to fill
the massive shoes she left behind!
Wayne - And so, Wayne (who we had
known for many years) contacted us & asked if he
could be a part of Heartland after being in the
U.S. for 5 years. He’s not sure how long he will
grace us with his presence (or fill our tummies
with his delicious meals) but for now, he is
content to create Heartland some truly yummy
meals. We are blessed to have him here as a
valuable part of the Heartland team!
Wayne is also chicken-manager and vegie-garden-extraordinaire!!!

Nicholas (our son) is learning to be an
excellent kitchen hand who delights in preparing
the most delicious salads as well as helping our

His dream one day is to be a radio announcer.
our Tai Chi instructor
Rob discovered this gentle
form of exercise while recovering from back
injuries after a couple of accidents on his
motor cycle. He broke his back, not once but
twice! He was in a lot of pain and didn’t think
he could ever do much again with his life. This
is when he discovered Tai Chi and after it made
such a difference in his life, he became a
teacher to inspire others to heal. Heartland is
lucky to have him here to share his knowledge

Heartland’s Healing Horse
Oliver - Arriving here just 3
weeks before Will passed away. Oliver has helped
heal some of the grief we have all felt with the
loss of Will. We are blessed to have “Ollie” as
our newest member of the Healing Team – a new 4
legged friend (and a big one at that!) He’s a
beautiful thoroughbred horse that we were lucky
enough to be chosen to take care of. His role
here is being the loving presence that he is!
There is really nothing more he has to do.
once a racehorse (although the couple of times
he raced… he came last…) but after a leg injury
his racing career was over. So, he came to us in
November 2012 so Ollie had some horsey-company.
Phil is so quiet and docile & loves a good
scratch around his head! Phil used to be the
lowest on the “pecking order” before he came to
Heartland, but now he’s gone up in the world and
is “2ic” to Ollie – ahead of the donkeys and
cows!! He’s in horsey-heaven!
and Conroy -
Keith (Nicholas named after Keith Urban) and
Conroy (I named after our friends Ali & Lex) are
our beautiful cows! We got them as poddy calves
and so now we can call them & they come
running!! Unfortunately born in a dairy farm and
being male (ie - not milk producing) we saved
them from a bullet. Fortunately for them, they
will live a lovely life here at Heartland, being
our chief grass cutters, along with the donkeys
and Oliver. Who could ever eat something so
beautiful? Come and meet them for yourself and
for a walk
WWOOFAS - That’s “Willing Workers On
From time to time, we have
the most wonderful wwoofas who come and stay
with us & help with the many jobs around
They help out in a variety of ways depending on
how long they stay with us. Heartland is very
appreciative of the helpers we attract.
If you are looking to volunteer here, join the
wwoofas organisation & then let us know.
We would love to have you!
Wildlife - Heartland is the home of
the Red-Necked wallaby.

They are shy of people – but are getting more
used to us and at times we can get quite close

Yoshoda is the white & grey
donkey and her offspring Mani was born at Easter
Patty is the oldest
donkey & Aggie is the most timid.
The donkeys have a very
important role here at Heartland, as they are
the ones who eat the grass! They’re always happy
to oblige you if you are holding a carrot or a
banana and always love that little extra bit of
attention (don’t we all!).
Our donkeys are a constant
reminder that love heals all (Aggie has recently
healed from a serious eye cancer through the
loving attention of many of the guests!)
