Sacred Power,

Wild Presence

with Jacqui Bushell

Come and experience how the wild calls you home into a deeper belonging.  Nature is always engaging us in ongoing conversations, through the body, senses and emotions. Explore how the spirit of the land calls you to awaken your vibrant aliveness.  In this dynamic and experiential workshop, embody your sacred power with the spirit of eagle, through moving meditation, story and journey work. Merging with the elements of earth and air, you will reveal and embrace more of your creative potential and shapeshift old habitual stress patterns. By accessing the mythopoetic realms of the Other World, experience a wilder communion and live in greater kinship with nature.


Finding the

Goddess Within :

Tulsi the Goddess Plant

with Lis Conlon

Learn how connecting with and honouring the consciousness of a plant can assist you to connect with and honour your own inner archetypes; in this case your Inner Goddess.


Lis will share some of her own personal transformational experiences with Tulsi the Goddess Plant. She will teach you plant communication techniques to help you connect with Tulsi and gently support you through deep meditative states using her voice, instruments and sacred sound.


Lis will also facilitate a shamanic journey on her ceremonial drum to guide you to a rich inner world. In that intuitive state you will engage with the sentient consciousness of Tulsi and receive the personal messages that Tulsi has for you.

You will experience a beautiful “Music of the Plants” meditation to assist with deepening your appreciation of the energetic and electromagnetic impulses from Tulsi the Goddess Plant.


Time will be available to share and write your insights and experiences – be sure to bring a pen and journal.


Bush Wise

with Pat Collins

Pat has lived on farms or in the bush most of her life and is passionate about sharing knowledge. 

Learn what “weeds” and native plants we can eat, use as medicine or for other uses.


Taste-test some of the plants eaten and used by Australia's first people, such as bunya nuts and Illawarra plum pine. Discuss how early colonisers survived using bush foods, and learn how to use bush spices in your everyday cooking.

Learn how to make string, create a wooden bowl, spearhead, grind grass seeds and cook in coals.
