As health and wellness practitioners, we are drawn to be of service. Collectively, we understand more than ever that our world needs us, and we need our world. It’s an intricate relationship.

Our Healing Hubs have been created with a vision of coming together in a nourishing environment to build a strength within Community and collectively play a role in reciprocal healing between ourselves and Country. 

These FREE monthly gatherings form part of our Yuin Healing Trail and are supported by a collaboration between SoulAdvisor and Ngungwulah Aboriginal Corporation.

Language is the vehicle through which traditions, stories and ancestral wisdom are passed down, ensuring their continuity. 

Learning and sharing our language is crucial for preserving cultural heritage and fostering intergenerational connections. Indigenous languages hold profound wisdom, encapsulating unique perspectives, knowledge systems and cultural values. By actively engaging with these languages, we honour and respect the rich tapestry of our ancestors.

Growing up, Jacob Morris learned to love and have fun in the bush while his Nanna taught him the words of their people. Jacob's great grandmother Lena Chapman was one of the last Dharrawal speakers from Yuin Country. She kept language alive within the family, and Warren Morris (Jacob’s uncle and mentor) handed down the responsibility of language to him and his cousin Joel Deaves.

By learning and sharing language, we contribute to the preservation of diverse linguistic heritage and celebrate ancient wisdom and Culture.

Be a part of the conversation, mingle and mix with your fellow local practitioners, therapists and traditional healers and share a cuppa!

The intention of our Healing Hubs is to bring together allied, traditional, complementary and medical practitioners within the local area to connect, find ways to collaborate and create employment opportunities and networks of common focus within the wellness industry, inclusive of First Nation community members and the SoulAdvisor practitioner base.

REMEMBER: Bring along your business cards, brochures and offers for our "get to know me" table.

This is a free event, however donations to SoulAdvisor Foundation and Ngungwulah Aboriginal Corporation are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you there.
