e sat down with Indya Gibbs, the new owner of Everyone’s Store Raglan to talk about herself, the store and everything in between. Situated on its own corner within Raglan’s township, the store is filled with beautiful threads. We could talk about it for longer, but Indya is pretty awesome at doing that herself!

Tell us about the store;

Introduce yourself! Ko Indya Gibbs ahau! I am the owner of this little shop in the heart of Whāingaroa, the town I was proudly born and bred in. After working in the shop for 5 years I recently took ownership…in the middle of a pandemic I know, but I wasn’t ready to walk away. These times are weird and unknown but I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Before the shop, I

was a professional dancer who got to tour the world and share my passion for dance and culture. I am trained in Māori Performing Arts, Siva Sāmoa, Ura Kāki Āirani and NZ Contemporary Dance. These were some of my most precious years and I believe I learnt the most about who I was and where I was from. Te āo Māori and dance are still the things that drive me the most every single day! The store is a little slice of who I am. It is a shop filled with colour, textures, fashion, music and an allaround happy vibe. Thanks to this incredible community the shop is usually filled with smiley faces, bodies of all sorts having a kanikani, and a creative environment. I stock a lot of amazing hemp products which are definitely the favourite, and natural fibres are really starting

to become a big passion of mine. I strive to support local and ethical brands that do good for our environment and our people. What's in store for the shop? My future vision for the store is to keep creating a positive colourful space for the people of my community and our visitors. To keep having fun with it, and for it to be a strong destination store here in Whāingaroa! Aaaannnnnd to keep dressing my friends haha, that’s the fun part. It is so cool to see the pieces from the shop out on the streets. What’s the best thing about running the store? I think my favourite part has to be wearing all the hats of the business…I have learnt so much about the “serious” side of the business during this process but I have also learnt that I can keep it fun

throughout. Being surrounded by beautiful kākahu all day is fun and dressing people in my community is so so so rewarding. How has lockdown been for the store? Lockdown has been weird…it hasn’t been ideal timing for me but I am so grateful to everyone who has supported me through these crazy times! This community is so solid and powerful. But I gotta say, I’m excited to open up those doors and get the people in here! Any words for the community? A huge mihi to everyone for the support!

MY M ENTA L HE A LTH TOOLBOX J AC Q U I C A U G H T U P W I T H R U B Y G I B B S W H O H A S U S E D H E R B A C K G R O U N D T O C R E A T E A M E N T A L H E A LT H R E S O U R C E

Tell us about what you have produced? I have created My Mental Health Toolbox. It is a small booklet filled with mental health tips that will hopefully inspire people to prioritise their headspace and provide them with tools to use when they need to lift themselves up out of a bad period. What inspired you to create the booklet on a personal level? I created the original Toolbox for my sister in May of this year when she was having a hard time. I know that sometimes talking to your big sister isn’t necessarily the first port of call but I really wanted to help her. I have a degree in psychology and am so passionate about the way we talk about mental health and our communication around it and I just wanted to share with her what I have learned in my life and the tools that I have in my toolbox. I got out my colouring pencils and just started creating. It was quite a cathartic experience for me too. Then, on the same day that I gave it to her, I found out that a friend of mine had taken his own life. Losing an incredible friend to suicide is something that I never thought I would have to experience, especially in a group of friends who talk openly about their mental health. It can make you feel pretty confused and helpless and I just needed to do something positive to help myself heal from that pain. Our suicide rates in New Zealand are so scary, especially among young people and I felt like I needed to do something to inspire change, however small. Did you intend to make it available to a wider audience? When I started making it, I truly thought it would go no further than my sister. But she really loved it and immediately shared it with all of her friends. I got so much positive feedback from them and it quickly spread through my community. Everyone encouraged me to pursue it further and design and distribute it throughout Whaingaroa. The love and support helped me through such a tough time, after losing my friend. It means so much to me on a personal level and I hope it can be of service to even one person. I believe that change starts in our communities.

What is your vision for this project? My vision is to create something that is genuine and thoughtful and that can be used as a resource for people to talk about mental health. I want it to be a starting off point, to give it to someone when you’re not quite sure how to approach a conversation but you want to show your support. I want people to give it to their friends who they know are struggling, or to their friends who seemingly have it all together. I want it to be your reminder to prioritise yourself. I want it to be something tangible in a space where things are so grey and difficult to talk about. If it facilitates positive change for even just one person, I’ll be stoked. Who are you collaborating with? Well I can barely draw a stick person so I’ve collaborated with a group of friends and artists who have all brought their own unique spin to this project; Molly McCabe, Ayeesha Geros, Lucy Galbraith, Fleur Rubingh and Ariel Hughes. These incredible women have been so receptive to this idea and have put in a lot of time creating the art for the booklet. I could have never done without them! When will it be available for those who would benefit from adding it to their tool kit? Well, we plan to have this printed and ready to launch by the start of December, so that it is in stores for summer. Just crossing our fingers that Covid doesn’t get in our way! You can follow us on Instagram @ mymentalhealthtoolbox where there will be updates on the release and sneak peeks of some of the incredible artwork. What is your message to those who are struggling with their mental health? Prioritise it! Make it top of the todo list every day. Life is damn hard sometimes, and a global pandemic really doesn’t help, but if you treat yourself with kindness, things can get a little easier. Figure out what tools work for you and remember that it is a lifelong job. Give it time, and give yourself grace through it and I really hope that you can start to see positive change. If you would like to stock and display the Toolbox in your business, please email Ruby at rubymgibbs@ gmail.com. This will be a free resource with an option to give a koha.

FIVE CH A NGES TO M A K E TODAY TO SUPPORT M ENTA L R ESILIENCE THIS SU M M ER H E R B A L D I S P E N S A RY 1. Nourish Your Body Alcohol, coffee, sugar, smoking, and other drugs can all have a detrimental effect on mental health. Be honest with yourself, are you looking after your body? Are you putting in things that make you feel good? How do you feel the day after? One of the main ways you can nourish yourself is via the food you eat. Aim for 5 plus a day­ (preferably organic) – it might seem like you’ve heard this all before, but really, how often do you achieve it? Avoid skipping meals, as big fluctuations in blood sugar levels can worsen mood and anxiety. Quality proteins, fats, and wholegrains are all important here too. 2. Movement Stress, low mood and anxiety can all benefit tremendously from regular exercise. If you’ve fallen out of an exercise routine, and starting again feels overwhelming, try making your initial goals so easy it’s almost impossible to fail. Start by, 3 times a week, going for a brisk 10-minute walk (in one direction, and then turn around and come back!). As the days and weeks go on, begin to build upon this. Aim to get your heart rate up most days through forms of movement you enjoy - it is truly vital for mental health & wellbeing. 3. Prioritise Sleep Regularly skipping out on sleep can create a bit of a vicious cycle, worsening mental health and therefore making sleep more challenging. To stop this cycle, it’s important to try and get at least 8 hours sleep each night. Create a sleep-supportive wind-down period: have a warm bath or shower, avoid screens (yes, TV and your phone!) for the last 1-2 hours before bedtime, and consider using natural supplements to aid sleep onset, for example a good quality magnesium (magnesium glycinate is our favourite

for sleep), herbal tea such as our Deep Sleep, or our Sweet Dreams herbal tonic. Exercise during the day will also help you sleep better at night. 4. Passion Having things in life you are passionate about and feel excited for is key to good mental health. Consider what your hobbies are, what makes you feel good, what “fills your cup”. Try to do something you enjoy at least once a week. If you’re not sure, chat to your friends about what they enjoy for ideas. Try something new… pottery class anyone? 5. Solid Support Systems It’s important to have people in your life to talk to. Friends, family, flatmates, co-workers… if you don’t have anyone to share with and need some support, consider seeking counselling support through your GP or by selfreferral. There are also many free services in NZ for when you need to talk to someone, for example free call or text 1737 to talk to a trained counsellor. Along with the above strategies, carefully tailored natural supplementation can also work wonders in improving mental wellbeing. Our Uplift herbal tonic and Sunshine tea are great for low mood, whilst our Be Calm tonic and Serenitea for anxiety. For stress and energy, consider the Adrenal & Stress tonic or Resilience herbal tea. For acute concerns, our qualified practitioners are available 9-5, 7 days a week, for a free 10 minute over the counter (or phone) consult. For more ongoing concerns, we recommend booking in a full consultation. Raglan Herbal Dispensary (07) 825 7444 6 Wallis Street, Raglan www.raglanherbaldispensary.nz

FEATURE FOCUS ON WELLBEING T H RO U G H W R I T I N G

s Covid fatigue takes hold over many of us, I am sharing a recent gem uncovered by a new dataset from the UK; the benefits of Free-Writing. The good news comes from a sample of high school leavers, who had repeatedly ‘failed’ English as a subject. Nevertheless, with the support of daily free-writing practice, a method that wasn’t judged by teachers, the young adults claimed to have markedly improved idea generation and access to a wider vocabulary. The most brilliant thing is that these students were self-taught. The teacher facilitated a creative space, and a creative process, however everything else was testament to the creative process of every individual. This recent data highlights the success of journaling for young adults; however, this article identifies journaling as a tool for all age groups and will give some tips for ‘how-to’ make this happen in your household. Free-Writing otherwise known as Journaling is a simple and effective way of manifesting personal growth. Over the last decade many psychological studies have shown that free, creative writing can reduce anxiety, increase well-being, and increase self-efficacy. I spoke with local business coach Sabrina Weber who has been using journaling for the last four years. Sabrina explained how the journaling process supports her to manifest her inner wisdom and spirituality. She described to me working past ‘mind chatter’ to find a place to have a conversation with ourselves. We spoke about the more traditional practice of keeping a diary, an oldfashioned pastime. However, the process of giving ‘mind-space’ may have also been lost in the process of diminishing the diary. Journaling, however, provides a daily reflective space, it can be used by everyone, it is simple, it is almost completely free, and it can be transported. Most of us will be adapting our approach to summer this year. I urge you to find time for journaling and make it a daily practice. For those of us with young children, you can ignite this process by establishing a daily scrap-booking practice. This is particularly fruitful if parents/Kaiako gather a selection of cuttings ahead of time. You can make pages of the scrapbook with recycled paper and bind it with string. Newspapers and

magazines can form the basis of your cuttings making the process free of charge and environmentally sound. Older children can leave devices at home (parents included!) and head outdoors with pen and paper, making a mental and physical space for creative reflection. Summer is for dreaming, resting, unwinding, relaxing - add a little journaling this year; it will do you the world of good. And for us adults, there are many ways to engage with journaling. Firstly, take advice from Julia Cameron’s ‘The Artists Way’, “It is never too late to explore your creativity”. You can follow the method of Morning Pages and start the day with a ‘brain dump’. Sabrina has coached many Raglan locals through this process, “sit with the first few paragraphs and see what comes next. Once you get that out of the way you will start to tap into the world of feelings. Once we get past the ‘stuff-we-are-trying-not-toforget’ we can set ourselves up for a calm incentive day, taking away chaos from our mind”. For Sabrina, journaling is like therapy, “you can ask yourself deep questions and you don’t have to be scared to be vulnerable”. Whilst we were chatting, Sabrina reflected on the recent data I shared with her about the benefits of free writing for

young adults, “If I am thinking back to my younger self at school I wish that was a ‘thing’. Since I have been journaling, my English has improved immensely, I am still dyslexic but it has removed my fear, it is much more about the message not the grammar”. Key features of incorporating journaling into school curriculum include, giving people the gift of words, not grading people on their creative output, empowering people with tools to communicate. It is certainly something all parents can reach towards as a teaching aide whilst home-schooling in this lockdown environment. Another massive effect of journaling is improved well-being, a finding that has been replicated across social sciences. Sabrina comments on this and explains that journaling, “is giving us the space to sit with our emotions as young adults and as grown-ups. To really reflect on how we are feeling as that’s not always encouraged to speak about. We can create that space for ourselves. And writing with pen and paper rather than the computer. When we write with pen and paper it helps us embed the process into our brain, an extra dimension to bring the words to life in our subconscious mind”.

FEATURE FOCUS ON WELLBEING WITH DR YOUNGSON

Dr Youngson sees clients and runs training courses from his clinic at the top of Stewart St.

‘H AVENING’ E XCITING NEW LINE FOR LOC A L R ETIR ED A N A ESTHETIST

R

aglan resident Robin Youngson used to specialise in putting people out – but now it’s more a case of putting them right. In fact the retired anaesthetist turned havening expert says the revolutionary techniques he now practices have freed more than 100 people locally, and many more around the country, from anxiety and trauma disorders. There’s no worry over his fees, either: the unassuming, softly spoken doctor – who has a home and clinic at the top of Stewart St – does not charge his local clients. Instead, on Fridays, he offers Raglan residents his expertise on a koha basis. It’s little surprise then that in the three years since being certified as a havening techniques practitioner Dr Youngson has gained quite a following in Raglan. He loves the work that now fills his so-called retirement, describing it as “a completely new career” as both a practitioner and a trainer in trauma therapy. The 65 year old says havening is more gratifying than anything he did in more than three decades as a medical doctor, a career in which he received plaudits for leadership in compassionate healthcare. He recalls his own astonishment to learn that three simple forms of human touch can radically change our brainwaves – that by gently rubbing

BY EDITH SY MES the hands, shoulders and face the brain is literally rewired to create a strong signal of safety and to remove the effects of trauma. “It’s astounding to witness,” he says. He insists the practise is not woo-woo, saying there’s “very detailed” neuroscience behind havening which explains how trauma is stored in the brain and how it can be reversed, right down to the molecular level. “Havening is when science and physiology work together.” Dr Youngson cites the case of one client who had a severe phobia and couldn’t drive across a bridge. During a 15-minute session the phobia vanished, the client got in the car and simply drove across “with no emotional reaction”. In another case, he says, a Raglan woman who’d had a gun held to her head in an armed hijacking overseas – resulting in recurring nightmares and a lot of anxiety – described her memory of the event as non-traumatic after just one 15-minute havening session. Dr Youngson explains the process as a gentle and intuitive one – either applied by the practitioner or by clients themselves under guidance. He says the technique offers a cure for anxiety, phobias, emotional problems, PTSD and some cases of chronic pain. Most of his work these days is in the ‘Neuroscience of Healing’ clinic he’s set up in the

basement of his brick home. He also runs training courses from this clinic, though for bigger groups uses the Karioi conference room at the Raglan Sunset Motel. Dr Youngson admits havening is still “pretty revolutionary”, and is passionate about spreading the word about its benefits at any opportunity. Recently, for instance, he was one of 12 speakers at a ‘Play to heal the world’ virtual festival. He’s also made presentations to a virtual Embodiment Conference, the Australasian Integrative Medical Association virtual conference, the Rotorua General Practice Conference and a perinatal anxiety & depression seminar series specifically for childbirth trauma. He sees “enormous potential” for large community networks to use havening techniques, and is excited to have been commissioned by an Auckland high school to train all six of its counsellors, plus another six youth counsellors associated with a charitable trust which works to reduce youth suicide. “This is a remarkable opportunity to get havening into schools,” says Dr Youngson. “I believe it can radically change the culture of an entire school.” The neuroscience behind healing trauma can release anyone from the distressing memories that hold them back, he insists. “I see client after client float free from their past and shine … it’s just amazing.”

For the first time ever, the RAW Preview Exhibition has launched online, meaning people can still see and purchase art, without needing to physically visit the Old School. The Online Preview Exhibition will run right up until 31 December, and can be found on the RAW web site under ‘Buy Art’. Earlier this month, the physical Preview Exhibition reopened at the Old School too and will continue to run until 21 November. Both the online and physical Preview Exhibitions are identical.

a very popular 300x300 show where artworks are sold for a fraction of their usual price, at $200 each. There is also a main exhibition, suitably titled: ‘And Then We Paused/ Reflections of a Covid World’. “We’ve worked quickly to adapt in this current climate, and we’re pleased our artists get to showcase, inspire others and hopefully sell their work,” says Nicky Brzeska, Coordinator for the Raglan Arts Weekend. “Having an online presence means the show can continue running long after the physical exhibition is packed down, which is great in the lead up to Christmas and the holiday period,” she adds. It’s a sizable collection of work with two artworks per artist, meaning 84 artworks are displayed. “A big chunk of these were sold in

the four days the Preview Exhibition was open before lockdown, but there are plenty still up for grabs. We have 13 new artists and the collection covers a really broad range of media – sculpture, painting, photography, metal work, encaustic, print making, illustration, pottery, weaving, textile art, designer jewellery, to name a few,” Nicky says. Sales from the Preview Exhibition go to the artists and also towards running RAW, a not-for-profit event. The physical show will be open at the Old School daily from 10am until 2pm and will run until Sunday 21 November. For those that want to visit it online, please go to www.raglanartsweekend.nz and look for the ‘Buy Art’ tab. The RAW self-guided arts trail has been postponed until Easter 2022.

fter a long career in education, former Raglan Area School principal Malcolm Cox is now immersed in his lifelong passion for carving. Working several days a week at Sands Carving Studio in Hamilton and the rest is spent at his home studio in Raglan where he melds carving together with storytelling. “What I’m really looking for is people to come to me and saying this is what we’re thinking, this is what we’re trying to get made, this is what it’s for and really unpack the story so I can make

something and work for them. They might come here for a pounamu bangle but they go away with an onewa piece because that’s their stone and suddenly there’s a whole lot more connection with that,” he says. A big part of the storytelling for Malcolm is in honouring the past and the vast knowledge Māori had of carving and how to work the various materials. “It’s a joy to learn from the past and those who came before us. I’m interested in what a we can learn, what we already know and how we can share that with people when they are buying a

taonga (precious gift). It’s not about dollars and cents; it’s about what’s important and valuing things and understanding that all stone have mauri (life force) and they are all are a taonga.” It’s the teacher in him that drives his passion for learning about the materials he uses, the stories behind the stone, and the traditional carving techniques that are being revived. “I’m somebody who likes to share and learn and then share. We often get young people into the workshop and I get the job of tutoring because teaching has been an expertise of mine.” He served as an apprentice carver for Alex Sands (Sands Carving Studio owner) and developed the techniques for carving pounamu but this piqued his interest in other stonework. Whilst most people seem to prize pounamu, Malcolm’s passionate about working with the onewa (basalt) that was thrown from Karioi when it last erupted over two million years ago. “We’ve placed a lot of prestige on pounamu and that’s fair enough but it wasn’t the working man’s stone. The vast majority of adzes and weapons were made out of onewa, pakoke (argilitte) or chert. Pounamu was relatively rare and always held in very high regard, therefore used for ceremonial a rather than practical work.” Sourced from local farmers and the local quarry, who Malcolm says are happy to part with the rocks and boulders ‘littering their land’. “I’ve got a couple of boulders from the quarry that will last me until I’m dead,” he laughs. The retired educator was a youngster living in Auckland when he first picked up some rudimentary carving tools and took to a piece of wood. He remembers being drawn to the carvings at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, and drew his inspiration from the pre-European examples of carving found there. Rejected from the Māori Arts and Craft Centre when he was 17 because he couldn’t whakapapa (connect through his genealogy), Malcolm took to teaching. Malcolm and his wife Marian met when they were both teaching in Tuatapere a small town in Southland. Keen to be closer to Auckland, Malcolm got work at the Raglan Area School and they made Whaingaroa home over 30-years ago. Taking his carving to the next level, Malcolm undertook a degree in Māori Visual Arts at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa in 2013 and says he was lucky enough to learn from some of New Zealand’s fines carvers – Mike Matchitt, the late John Bevan-Ford and the late Te Kuiti Stewart. Malcolm retired in 2019 after serving for 15 years as the school’s principal and 45 years of teaching, now dedicates much of his time to carving.

recruitment company’s recent questioning of job applicants to declare any history of family violence has put into the spotlight the legalities around what questions employers can and cannot ask prospective employees. This is particularly relevant right now in terms of asking prospective employees their Covid-19 vaccination status. While it is lawful to ask an applicant whether they suffer from health conditions which could impact on their ability to perform the role, questions around family violence posed significant issues from both a privacy law and discrimination perspective. Similarly, any questions that could result in discrimination on any of the prohibited grounds listed in the Human Rights Act 1993, including: sex, marital status, religious or ethical beliefs, colour, race, ethnicity, age, political opinion, family status, employment status or sexual orientation will also be problematic. There are of course exceptions

that will apply in certain circumstances. For example, an employer may have a hiring policy that prevents the employment of a de factor partner or spouse for genuine reasons.

or retail businesses that will be impacted by the new Covid-19 Protection Framework (the “Traffic Light System”), requesting an applicant’s vaccination status would be justified.

Many employers are currently wanting to know whether they are entitled to require a prospective employee’s Covid-19 vaccination status. While a person’s vaccination status is their personal information, under the Privacy Act, employers are entitled to request personal information if they have a lawful purpose.

In addition to asking a prospective employee for their vaccination status, as part of a new employment agreement an employer may also require vaccination for a role based upon risk assessments they have done. This must be reasonable for the role and must not amount to unlawful discrimination under the Human Rights Act 1993. For example, there may be religious or medical reasons why someone is unable to receive the vaccine.

Employers will need to undertake a risk assessment to determine what roles have a higher risk of exposure to Covid-19 than the general population in order to establish whether collection of prospective employee vaccination information is lawful and necessary. Relevant factors include what level of exposure the employee has to others, how close the contact is, how frequent, how often, and whether the work is performed mainly inside or outside. It is likely that for employers running hospitality

This is an extremely rare opportunity to secure a main street Raglan commercial premises which are traditionally tightly held. The site would suit a myriad of uses, in particular retail due to the very high foot traffic and prime position among other successful long term businesses. Situated in the ‘Raglan Business Town Centre Zone’ with a building height permitted of 10m with no building setbacks, redevelopment to a multi level building in the future as Raglan grows is a real possibility here. This is a fantastic chance for a business to cement their operations in the main street and secure their future without the restrictions of being a tenant.
