My vision is to bring a sense of cultural regeneration for my people. This involves shifting the ecological, social and cultural perspectives in relation to our connection to Earth. In my experience through practice and research, a connection to wellbeing and creative expression has given the my being the greatest spiritual integrity and agency towards building social, cultural and environmental ecosystems that sustain communities.
I love to create, write, research and educate communities on the practices and philosophies of yoga.
All of my work is driven to deepen our relationship to the Earth through embodiment practices; ceremonies, rituals, art creations and experiential engagement activities that deepen the connection between PEOPLE and CULTURE. I wish to create an impact which helps to embed our connection to country and community through educating on the benefits of somatic, visionary, ceremonial and embodied arts and movement practice.
My work renews a sense of CO-CREATION, animacy and reciprocity with earth, our bodies, our community.
I am passionate about the power of education, and therefore take learning as essential for my people to see beyond their current reality and into their future potential relationship with the earth, and in turn, to themselves and their community. My areas of speciality consider how spirituality and embodied cultural practices (art as ritual), engender key values in wholistic health, ecological reciprocity, community participation and co-creation. I value the integration of these key spiritual learning concepts into museums and cultural collections, and into the education system.
I encourage a return to relationship to source, which drives inspiration and individual and communal purpose, creating a greater spaciousness for self-care, ecological and environmental care, and community wellbeing practices. Those who learn to connect deeply with their roots, come into close relationship to Earth, and therefore create positive change for our cultures. Embodied cultures and solid education foundations in the root of culture is essential for individual, community and national wealth and health codes.
These codes are based on a return to Indigenous concepts of reciprocity, animacy, love and heart centred connection and appreciation for all of creation.
