OK. It’s official! APO will be doing two shows in Aus–one in Melbourne and the other in Sydney. I am reprinting an email from Liz Angeles who is the producer for the Sydney leg.

‘Hi Everyone,

The success of “Kumustahan” concert featuring APO Hiking Society, Nanette Inventor and Geneva Cruz in Middle East and other part of the world have prompted the promoter from Melbourne (Global Events Organiser) to bring this group to Australia come Aug 4 (Melbourne) and Aug 5 (Sydney) 2006. There’s a big demand to return the ever popular and talented APO Hiking Society back to Australia after a long years of absence doing concerts in Australia.

In response to public demand, a return concert scheduled on (Saturday) 5 August 2006 is now booked at the Capitol Theatre, a world class concert venue located at Haymarket (City).

This show will be another popular hit with the Filipino community! APO Hiking Society with the addition of Nanette Inventor and Geneva Cruz packed into one show, this event is sure to be EXPLOSIVE!

Please spread the news and send this email to your friends and relatives.

Tickets are all $85.00 (Reserved seating). Booked your tickets early to get the best available seats.

We have done this particular roadshow in Amsterdam, London, Vienna, Rome, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait. After Australia, we will be going to Guam (August 26) and Saipan (August 28). I hope you guys can catch this. It’s a lot of fun. You can also get in touch with me to reserve your tickets. Write me at jimparedes@gmail.com and leave your contact details and I will get in touch or ring you promptly.

The other activity I am inviting you to is my 30th run of my unblocking-of-creativity workshop. This will be the first time I am doing this in Australia and I am REALLY excited about this. Unlike the concert, this will be for a small group, probably no more than 30 to 40 people at most. Read on:


Do you sometimes feel that life is passing you by?
Do you feel alive to your own life?
Are you experiencing the feeling of aliveness or has everyday living become
a dull, boring, meaningless out-of-body experience?
Are you in between careers, jobs, loves, dreams, and life paths?
Are you stuck and can’t seem to move forward to where you really want to
be?
Are you ‘mid-lifing’?

If you answered yes to any of the above, I am inviting you to a workshop that will open a wonderful opportunity to rediscover yourself and the fire and breath of the creative in you that you may have forgotten. Engage and know yourself in a way you have never known before as you wake up to the potential creative energy in you.

TAPPING THE CREATIVE UNIVERSE will help you identify your blocks and will give you the tools to overcome them and all other blocks that may come your way in the future. It will awaken the vitality that you need to feel and fuel the life that you want for yourself.

Where: Campbelltown Catholic club
When: July 23, Sunday 8:30 AM to 6:30PM
(Registration is at 8:00 am)
Fee: 99$ AUD
Reservations: email jimparedes@gmail.com if you want to recieve flyers and more info via email. Leave phone no. if yo wish to talk to a knowledgeable person.

This workshop has had 30 successful runs since it was first introduced three years ago in the Philippines. Companies, civic groups, regular people from different professions and walks of life have benefited from it. TCU has also been offered successfully in San Francisco and is now being offered for the first time in Sydney. I urge you not to miss this paradigm-shifting one day experience.

Here are some comments from former participants.

“TCU is about being conscious that every second, every thought, every little action.. and every little energy counts towards some destiny. It is about NOW. A series of joyous nows, makes a joyous life. TCU has made me conscious about the importance and logic of The Present… Moreover, I have found TCU friends here! TCU is growth not just during the classes. It is also what you do with what you have learned as part of your journey after the classes! -Diane, 40 years?!, (oh? it’s just a number!)

“TCU has changed my life…for better. I recommended it to my husband and it worked for him too. SPLENDID!” Warm regards, -Athiporn

“Every writer dreams to have his works published some day. TCU has opened a portal in my mind, and enhanced my adventures in creativity. Furthermore, it developed my skills as a writer and made me realize that there are countless opportunities for recognition!” -Jard M Gerona, writer

“TCU was a fun learning experience for me. At 50 (when I took the course), I was the oldest in the class of about 2 dozen or so people who were mostly in their late twenties to early thirties (some are friends of my kids). Thanks to my ex-classmate Jim Paredes for teaching me useful tips on creativity.

Just do it!”-Rene Ongpin, retired stockbroker.

“TCU helped me unblock my creativity and get in touch with my inner self. I have discovered that there is more to me than what I know and there is no other time but NOW to do whatever I should. =)” -Lara M. Garcia, 34, Ghostwriter/Researcher & Vocal Coach

TCU has tremendously helped me to focus my energy and passion to what truly matters: (i) here, in the now — by paying attention to life’s everyday details, and (ii) my divine gifts — by expending them where they will make huge and real difference.

It was a very liberating experience for me. I am also very grateful to have met my lifetime friends through TCU. Through TCU, I am also beginning to re-discover my true self.” -Bettina Gancayco (wife, mother and civil servant of the World Bank Group) Age, Forever 21 — hah-ha!!

“Learning to live each moment to the fullest has had a tremendous impact on me.” -Wouter Lincklaen Arriens,ADB Executive,
musician, 47

See you there.
