I recommend ‘One Life’ to everyone!
I have spent a fortune on enrolling and not completing
various courses trying to find what ‘ I ’ needed. It was through
accidentally bumping into a friend that I heard about ‘OneLife’.
From the moment I arrived I have met the most wonderful
inspiring teacher (Ange) and without a doubt made life long
friends with the other members of the group.
We are all so different which makes the meetings very
interesting and thought provoking. I love that there is no
judgment, criticism and you feel free to ask questions, make
comments for further assistance in working out any issues. It is
soul searching which can reactivate old wounds but the end
result is that you develop a TOOLKIT to go on and have the
most fulfilling life that you choose.
I feel so empowered and it is the BEST thing I have ever done

In the City Summer
Monday November 29, 2010
a mounting vibe in Canberra City.
A new market, geared to showcase
locals with a particular talent, is
creating a carnival atmosphere around the city’s
finest cafes and restaurants.
City Walk Expo, Canberra’s latest market, can
accommodate more than 150 stalls. They line City
Walk with a range of local and regional handmade
products and produce of arts, craft, designer
clothes and accessories.
Along with the stalls, the festive and fun
atmosphere is brought alive with dancers, buskers,
bands, acrobats and jugglers.
Shir Turner is the brains behind “Canberra’s
newest addition since Burley Griffin”. The born
and bred Canberran is the chief executive officer
of VI Ambition Support Incorporated (VIASI) –
a Canberra based not-for-profit organisation
committed to supporting local talent, establishing
refuges in the ACT and working towards no
homelessness in Australia by 2021 by providing
shelter and sourcing permanent accommodation.
Mr Turner wanted to bring something new to
the region that would have positive results for
“The market will help showcase local and
regional creative talent. In addition it will provide
entertainment for Canberrans and make people go
out and about,” he said.
“We want the city to be a memorable experience.”
Designed to encourage people to embrace the
help they receive, City Walk Expo was launched on
November 6 and will run every Saturday. All profits
go to VIASI. Mr Turner’s philanthropy and positive
outlook on life has helped the markets become a
tool for supporting local talent and a mechanism
for helping them reach their dream.
“I have an unlimited ambition to help people,”
“A good society rewards you, so in return you
support that society by giving back.”
There is something for everyone at City Walk
Expo, with clothing stalls and balloon artists for
the kids, a good selection of quality boutiques
for those aged 25-60 and dancing, buskers and
circus acts for all ages. Trading hours are 9.30am-
5pm and there is free parking on London Circuit
and Constitution Avenue on the day.
Mr Turner said the approval of the markets, which
has taken two years, shows that the government
is on the same page as he in promoting Canberra
“It [the markets] will boost trade in amongst the
city by bringing interstate tourists and introducing
local flavours,” he said.
“We are bringing festivity into a normal Saturday
– we want people to leave with this in their mind.”
With dancing, singing, circus acts and boutique stalls, Canberra’s
newest market is giving the city more soul. BY MELANIE CLARK
