Reconciliation Week Session - Thursday 2nd June 7:30pm AEST

Insights into your experience

Wayapa shares the ancient Indigenous wisdom of taking care of the Earth as the starting point for creating Earth Mind Body Spirit well-being. 

Living in harmony with the environment is what sustained Australian Aboriginal people to Live Life Well to be one of the world’s oldest, continuous living cultures – for over 100,000 years!

Today, for most of us, we have become disconnected from our environment, from our tribe, from our food and from our Spirit. 

This session will start with an Acknowledgment to Country with the burning of leaves to honour the Traditional Custodians, the Spiritual Ancestors and the Elders of all the lands where everyone is joining in from.

Through the practice of storytelling, Jamie will take participants on a journey through time to understand the ancient ways of knowing, doing and being of Wayapa.

Learn why it is important to activate your reciprocal relationship with the environment.

Be immersed in the practice of ancient earth mindfulness with the 14 Wayapa Elements to find a deep sense of belonging by living a purposeful life for individual and collective wellbeing.

To conclude this experience, Jamie will invite participants to join with him as he demonstrates the embodiment practice of Wayapa Wuurrk, Connecting to the Earth.
