Led by Shane Mortimer, Serene Fernando and Noritta Morseu-DioIp
In this course we hope to make connections with each other, with the land, and with the spiritual wisdom of our traditions. Local Elder Shane Mortimer will offer a welcome to country. We will hear from Serene Fernando, a Gamilaroi woman who is producing a creative PhD research thesis looking at the spiritual beliefs of her ancestors. She is looking forward to sharing the wisdom she has found, and her personal responses to this. Noritta Morseu-Diop, from Thursday Island, will introduce to us the spirituality of her salt-water people. She has a PHD in Criminal Justice and Social Work, and organised a First Nations Traditional Knowledge Conference in August this year.
For our weekend come prepared for some listening, some yarning, some walking, and some time for personal reflection and connection.
