"Your Vibe attracts your Tribe"
“Be the change you want to see in the World” by Mahatma Gandhi expresses the Monad Centre's purpose in its simplicity. The Centre is an externalization of a life mission of the Co-Founder's Iva and Neil Parker-Puie. As mature practitioners and students of evolving consciousness in their autumn years they have created the Monad Centre, a Light House to share knowledge, new ideas and life skills for the healing and evolving of an enlightened humanity.
"The marriage of human and spiritual psychology is the new consciousness and the next level of evolution to evolve a new species of humanity spiritual in origin" Nothing new is born from current thinking. We must reach to a new platform of consciousness to bring forth new levels of awareness to affect change in the outer world from within ourselves" - Iva Parker-Puie
The Monad Centre opened its doors to serve its community with holistic healing, natural medicine, meditation and mindfulness classes and personal and spiritual evolving retreats and workshops. Under this umbrella a number of facilitators and practitioners offer a variety of alternative services for well-being. Go to Timetable to view classes, workshops and retreats on offer.

My love of alternative therapy and natural medicine is in my genes being the conventional medicine of Samoa my birthplace. I grew up learning bush medicine from my great Aunt Lesa the last medicine woman of my village. I am continuing this ancient art of natural medicine integrating life experience, knowledge and techniques of my spiritual practice and qualification in complementary modalities outlined below. The uniqueness of my humanity service through the Monad Centre is an externalization of all my spiritual learning and expansion I have embodied in the experience of human living.
I acquired qualifications in various fields of modalities natural to my lifestyle and passion for alternative medicine to have a variety of healing processes, methods and techniques that I now integrate in various combination tailored to individual needs. I am a government certified Holistic Counsellor specialising in Mind Body Medicine and Flower Essence Diagnostic Therapy. As a Holistic Healer I believe another level of education is required that focuses on an understanding of our human and divine nature. This learning combined with academic qualification provides a deeper insightful approach to healing enabling a therapist to facilitate holistic healing addressing causes and effects of ailment beyond the mind to the expansion of self and spiritual awareness central to wellness. I am also certified as Peter Hess Sound Massage and Sound Meditation Therapist, Associate Diploma in Pranic Healing, Certified in Reiki, Certified in Flower Essence Therapy and Facilitator of Meditation and Mindfulness Classes. To add depth and holism to my formal qualifications I draw on over 40 years of spiritual knowledge, experience, life skills and a natural discipline of meditation and mindfulness gathered on my inner journey of “Self Realisation”. My key strengths and life-long passion is studies of the Psychology of the Self, a field of personal inner studies and development I have dedicated this life to at a very early age as I knew this my Soul purpose. Self and Spiritual awareness is the cornerstone to alternative healing, meditation, personal and spiritual development activities provided at the Monad Centre.
My professional career spans over 25 years in government in administrative and office management roles assisting heads of departments and senior officers in the daily coordination of information and workflow in their offices. These roles were the training ground to honing my practical experience of Counselling, Soul Psychology and listening skills as people seemed to always gather in my office seeking advice from professional, personal to spiritual matters. I learned invaluable life skills and the joy of working with others building meaningful heart felt relationships.
To make the transition to pursue my passion in making a difference in the field of Complementary Therapy, I acquired formal qualifications to integrate with my life experiences, skills and knowledge: Government accredited qualifications in Holistic Counselling & Mind Body Medicine, Therapeutic Massage, Specialist in Flower Essence Diagnostic Therapy from the Life Academy of Australia. Associate Certified Pranic Healer from the Institute of Inner Studies Inc; Peter Hess Sound Massage and Meditation Therapy; Certification in Relationship & Conflict Resolution, Abuse and Abuse Trauma from the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors; Facilitator of Meditation and self development activities, Senior First Aid Certificate, Mental Health First Aid Certificate and Diploma of Business, Administration & Office Systems, TAFE.

My interest in complementary therapy and natural medicine came about when my wife needed a body to practice on whilst completing her qualifications. The experience inspired me to complete my own accredited qualification as a Therapeutic Massage Therapist specialising in flower essence therapy and acu-point treatments. This complemented my background in Sports Training. Massage was a main preventative therapy I included in my hectic sports routine and for most part it did the job of alleviating aches and pains, but the inclusion of flower essences takes this bodywork therapy to a whole new level. The essence not only relieves the symptoms very quickly but they also have a balancing effect on the mind-body system. The feedback from those I had treated during 12 months of clinics along with families, friends and work colleagues have been inspiring and positive.
In my personal life I enjoy group meditation and esoteric studies with like minded people that provide the grounding and balancing aspect of my life. I am a member of a Meditation Centre and a global Oneness movement focused on the awakening of humanity to their Divine potential. While I have discovered these activities through my wife it is an area in which I share her passion and joy wholeheartedly. It has evolved my own spiritual awareness to a deeper understanding of my nature and using the power of the mind to create the realities that support wellbeing.
I see the Monad Centre as an opportunity to consolidate my many and varied life experiences and life skills especially in health and fitness to help others. My formal qualifications that support the therapies I provide are: Government accredited qualification from Life Academy in Therapeutic Massage, specialising in Flower Essence therapy; Associate Certified Pranic Healer qualification from the Institute of Inner Studies Inc; Sports Trainer from the Australian Sports Medicine Federation, Senior First Aid Certificate and Mental Health First Aid Certificate.

Warren McManus - Founder of Mind Set - Coaching and Meditation, Certified as a Meditation Teacher, Holistic Counsellor and Coach. Member of IMTTA
My name is Warren and I am proud to be starting my journey at Monad as a Meditation Facilitator and Holistic Counsellor & Coach. My meditation class will support people new to meditation and offer participants a light hearted, relaxed and inclusive space regardless of background, culture or religion to build on their practice, gain a deeper understanding of meditation and its benefits and learn to operate in a more grateful state of mind.
My connection to meditation started when I began to experience symptoms of poor mental health related to past childhood trauma. I knew I had to find a way to deal with the past and move forward in order to be the best version of myself for my wife and children and be someone my children could look up to one day. Around the same time, I also started to study trading the financial markets and quickly learned that mindset was, above all, the most important aspect in order to become a successful trader.
Fast forward a few years and many hours of hard work, and I found myself in a far more positive, grateful and hopeful mindset, and I noticed that this to was starting to influence those around me in a positive way. I decided to deepen my own knowledge and delve into the world of teaching meditation with the inclusion of a holistic counselling/coaching approach in the hopes that I can support others to find the inner peace and positivity that I have grown into over the past years.
My passion is in men’s mental health, and I believe that there is much work to do in this space to ensure that men in our community are getting the support they need, and feel comfortable to engage in the support being offered.
On the Holistic Counselling and Coach side of my community service here are some of the areas I can assist you with:
- What are your foundations of your physical, emotional and spiritual happiness and are they being met? I can help you identify these crucial foundations as a first step to empower you to build a solid foundation for happiness.
- I will help you remove the noise from what you have been programmed to believe you are supposed to need as opposed to what you really need
- I will be a support and someone to hold you accountable with encouragement. Together we will set small but powerful, realistic and achievable goals: Dreams + Action= Goals
- As a Holistic Counsellor we will look at your life's aspirations, where you have been, where you are now and where it is you want to be through a holistic lens, covering mind, body and soul
- We will work on building healthy rituals and routines that fit in with your lifestyle and work for you through the art of meditation, breath work and various other tools that are tailored to you as an individual.
- Struggling with anxiety, mental health issues or just struggling to move forward in general? I have personally struggled with all of the above but through reflection, goal setting and dedication I have been able to move forward and so will you.
I look forward to meeting and supporting you on your journey to a happier, healthier you. I can be contacted on [email protected]. My website and facebook will be advertised here soon.
