It carries the accolade of being Johannesburg’s original outdoor market and is a place of relaxed enjoyment for the whole family. www.bryanstonorganicmarket.co.za

Opal-Jazmine believes we are all spirits on this earth learning to fulfill our chosen purposes and ultimately evolving into the joyful, spiritual beings we are meant to be. All of our different deities want us to experience this joy, and all of the knowledge that is now being made public, reinforces this fact. It is no longer a secret, but rather a scientific fact that our spirituality is our key to abundance in love, health, wisdom, wealth and happiness. www.spiritsoracle.co.za
