Join us in the Shoalhaven celebrating a week on FREE in-person Wayapa Wuurrk® Connecting to Country workshops.

In modern times, many of us have experienced a disconnection from our environment, our tribe, our food and our Spirit. This disconnection has created a void in our lives.

For over 60,000 years, First Nations peoples have thrived as the world’s oldest, continuously living culture by embracing a harmonious coexistence with their environment.

Their deep connection to the land, flora and fauna has sustained their way of life and fostered a profound understanding of ecological balance. Through this enduring relationship, they have honed their knowledge and wisdom, passing it down through generations.

Wayapa® offers a powerful combination of Earth mindfulness, narrative meditation, physical movements and environmental stewardship. By engaging in Wayapa®, we can rediscover our sense of belonging to the Earth and restore holistic wellbeing.

Through this practice, we re-establish a profound connection with our surroundings, finding harmony with nature and rekindling our bond with our tribe and Spirit.

Sound like something you’d like to experience? You’ve come to the right place.

Thanks to the kind generosity of the NSW Office of Sport, you can come and try Wayapa® for FREE.
