“When the gardener plants an apple seed, does he expect the apples to appear at once? Of course not. The gardener waters the seed, watches it each day, and feels happy seeing the growth. Treat the body in the same way. We water our asana and pranayama with love and joy seeing the small progress. While we know what our goal is, we do not focus on enlightenment. We know that when our practice is ripe, illumination comes.”  ~ B.K.S. Iyenga

Family Mediator Hawke Segal Mediation

Gloria Hawke is one-half of Hawke Segal Mediation, which she established and runs with her partner Saranne Segal in Edgecliff.

She is passionate about mediation and helping empower and support people resolve their differences and reach negotiated agreements through mediation. Saranne and Gloria are both nationally accredited mediators and also accredited through the Attorney General’s department as family dispute resolution practitioners.

Through mediation, they help parents stay in control of the outcomes around their parenting arrangements, their financial settlements, and future. When they work with organisations, this might be anything from a local council, a not for profit to an ASX listed company. Workplaces are notorious for disputes, which isn’t surprising given how much time many of us spend at work. Gloira will come into either facilitate discussions or conduct an investigation if allegations of bullying or harassment and discrimination are made.

Life Stylist enthusiast and co-founder of Hamblin’s Hamblins

I have studied many things starting with a retail trainee-ship after school, make-up artistry, accounting, art history and finally colour design after 10 years of being an at home mum. I’d say my biggest asset is my eye for detail and passion for design and beautiful things.

At Hamblins, my role is all about delivering an experience. I am an ideas person! I’m the interior designer, stylist, merchandiser, curator and sourcer of wonderful things both locally and from around the globe. I like to create and design things from branding and image to products for the store. I also look after the running of the day to day business stuff like accounts, social media and sometimes even doing the odd flower delivery.
