A 90-minute Introductory Wayapa Wuurrk Workshop that works well outdoors, connecting to the elements in the environment or, if need be, facilitated indoors.
Wayapa Wuurrk, in the languages of the Maara & GunaiKurnai Peoples, directly translates to “Connect to the Earth”.
Wayapa co-creators Jamie Marloo Thomas, proud GunaiKurnai man and Maara descendant, and Sara Jones, a Welsh Canadian Australian, are on a mission to help you and me strengthen our relationship with our environment by drawing on ancient Indigenous wisdom and earth mindfulness. The aim is to encourage each of us to make regenerative choices that benefit the Earth and taking intergenerational responsibility seriously.
They’ve added Earth to Mind, Body, Spirit Wellbeing. Underpinning their mission is the philosophy that without nurturing Earth, there’s no point focusing on our own mind~body~spirit. They acknowledge Australia’s First Peoples and Indigenous peoples worldwide, also recognised this connection and lived with nature for their own wellness.
All Wayapa Practitioners and anyone who experiences the Wayapa Practice is encouraged to acknowledge that we are all indigenous to our planet and tap into our ancestors’ wisdom and relationship with Earth. Using this wisdom to build resilience for the Earth and ourselves.
