Dialogue In The Dark Stats and Facts

What is Dialogue in the Dark™: Dialogue in the Dark™ is an experience in total darkness. You are led by blind guides, and learn to interact and communicate by relying on your other senses. A reversal of roles is created: people who can see are taken out of their familiar environment. Blind guides provide them with orientation through every day experiences in a world without pictures. The tour lasts for about an hour, but the effects are life-changing. Dialogue in the Dark™ gives you the chance to challenge your own limits, overcome boundaries, and discover your hidden potential. The exhibition aims to open every day Australians’ eyes in the dark, showing that a world without sight is not poorer, just different Globally, the program operates as a social enterprise. Its mission is to facilitate social inclusion of the people with a disability and people who are marginalised in general. Through experiential learning, DiD visitors’ attitudes and behaviours are changed. For guides, their employment opportunities are improved. These combined, DiD provides the environment to create more …

Rest House Floatation Therapy Tips

Rest House has put together a few helpful tips which you can implement into your daily routine to compliment the steps you’ve already taken towards a better you! Drink a large glass (500ml+) of warm lemon water first thing in the morning (half to whole lemon squeezed). This will hydrate the body, help reduce joint pain, improve digestion, increase liver function, revitalise skin, the list goes on.

Eat more greens! The human body requires minerals such as Magnesium, Calcium, and Potassium amongst many others in order to function at its optimum. Magnesium alone is responsible for over 300 physiological processes within the body yet a vast majority of people are deficient not only in Magnesium but many other minerals due to our diet and lifestyle. Green vegetables are full of minerals and will help replenish your body’s levels, leaving …
