Getting to the heart of nature
18 May 2019
Canning River Eco Education Centre
Kent Street & Queens Park Road
Explore the beauty in your own backyard on an immersive nature experience. The day will begin with a traditional smoking ceremony on a tranquil river bank to cleanse you and welcome you to the land at the start of our day. Continuing this connection to nature, you will cross the river to explore the pristine flora and view fauna abundant in the season of Djeran. Ancient stories will be shared to help deepen your experience of the natural surroundings and transport you back to a time where we all existed in closer harmony with nature. During the exploration of the river bank, there will be an opportunity to forage for bush foods and medicinal plants.
Nature stories continue through art as Jangala shares the language of dot painting, offering insights into cultural practices and the changing landscapes that have stood the test of time.
The afternoon brings an opportunity to explore gentle Dru Yoga practices, dedicated to nature helping you relax even further. The heart-focused movements and relaxation will prepare you for the final experience - a group meditation and healing lead by Vanessa Corunna, a local traditional owner and expert in Aboriginal healing techniques.
This event is fully catered with a delicious and healthy morning tea, a sumptuous lunch, and opportunities to sample bush tucker. Free barista coffee and a range of teas are available throughout the day.
