Silver Wattle Water Dreaming: Aboriginal Spiritual Ceremony

Led by Ceane Towers and Shane Mortimer

The simplest things are often the things that are forgotten and left behind in this busy world we live in; often we are forgetting our own Identity. It’s time to remember where we Belong.

People who attend this spiritual retreat Ceremony will experience being one with self, each other and the land around them. The work shop will focus on Self, Family/Community and Country Healing that will be achieved through connection with oneness and deep Listening Skills.

We will take the time to slow down to bush time away from our busy every day lives and link in with the oneness within and around us through quiet reflective times as well as sharing some of our stories. We will connect with our free creative spirit and express our well intent to our futures whilst learning and utilising Aboriginal Practices.

This course is part of Silver Wattle’s annual Indigenous Spirituality series.

Cost: Three day course $420 (single room) / $280 (twin share/concession) includes all meals and accommodation
