SoulAdvisor and Ngungwulah Aboriginal Corporation invite you to join us in marking the 26th of January.

GO BAREFOOT ON BELONGING DAY is a national campaign that speaks of our deep respect for Country, Culture and Community and expresses our heartfelt understanding that we all belong to this nation and this planet.


Join Jrumpinjinbah here on Yuin Country for a Smoking Ceremony and Yaan about this special place we live in.

We will share our plans for the Yuin Healing Trail in October which centralises First Nations ways of being, doing and knowing in the healing of  both the Shoalhaven and our nation. Many Cultural sharings from this area have impacted people's sense of belonging and initiatives such as first Aboriginal retirement home,  Circle Sentencingfirst regional Aboriginal Medical Centre started here in the Shoalhaven and rippled out across Australia. We know this is one will too, and invite your full participation.

Jrumpinjinbah (Paul  Mcleod)

Jrumpinjinbah (Paul Mcleod)

Anyone who meets Jrumpinjinbah knows what a privilege and a pleasure it is to connect with him. Jrumpinjinbah means “crow medicine” and he has traveled the world sharing cultural stories, dance, music and art, carrying huge cultural responsibility for his people.

Every conversation is healing and Jrumpinjinbah loves bringing people back to their Indigenous roots. We all have our own story of connection to Country and our place of birth represents our clan and our story. We don’t own the land - we belong to it - and everything that you see is from the land.

As Jrumpinjinbah says: “Your human existence will only last for a short space of time, and from there you go back to the spiritual essence where everyone is equal. There is no ‘You’re greater than me or I’m greater than you’. You just are”. Jrumpinjinbah invites you to join him on Country to admire the beauty and pay homage to Mother Earth
