During the time I am in the Northern Territory I will meet participate in a 5-day Cultural Tour with a group of other adults and children. I will meet some of the Sharing Culture Advisors for the first time. And visit a number of Indigenous communities. I will also work on our Voices of the Rivers project.
I cannot express how excited I am. I know that I am entering a new special phase of my life, in terms of my work and personal life, wellbeing and spiritual development. I know I will learn so much and that this trip will likely change me greatly. I am ready!
Please check out our Rivers project. I’m doing research for this project on this trip and hoping to go back in a couple of months to do some filming with my colleague Michael Liu. I just know this project is going to be very special. Those Voices of the Rivers are going to resonate loudly around the world.
I’ll probably not be blogging for parts of the time I am away. However, I hope to keep in touch with you as to what is happening on my facebook page.
You might also like to look around our website. You can take a website tour if you wish.
Let me leave you with some special words from Dr Miriam Rose Ungunmerr Baumann. I’ll be spending some days with Aunty Miriam in Nauiyu. I also include a song that I cannot stop playing.
The song is by the actor and musician Tom E Lewis and is filmed in Katherine, where I will be spending a week. Tom is the latest recruit to Sharing Culture’s international network of Advisors and Healers. More about this inspirational man in a future blog.
"We are like the tree standing in the middle of a bushfire sweeping through the timber. The leaves are scorched and the tough bark is scarred and burnt, but inside the tree, the sap is still flowing and under the ground, the roots are still strong. Like the tree, we have endured the flames and yet we still have the power to be reborn.” Dr Miriam Rose Ungunmerr Baumann
