This is a fun journey of movement and expression for all ages and abilities. Join us in the Dome as we play with the five elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Space. Each element has a certain quality that will guide our dancing and rhythms: From Earth we dance with strength, from Water we flow, from Fire we shake and transform, Air we move and Space we become still.
Facilitators: Eve E White, Jacqstar Davies
Join our guest hosts for a 30 minute exploration into the art and culture of Aboriginal Australia. Eve will host our first week of Indigenous Art, she is a Proud Wiradjuri woman who teaches yoga and aboriginal culture in schools and studios around NSW also accredited by NESA with Wandana education and events.
Beginning our experience with a traditional smoking ceremony known as a Warra Wayjul, creating an intention to heal and cleanse the area and ourselves.
We will then playfully explore Aboriginal history and culture with dreaming stories through, movement art, and symbols. Everyone will receive a Journey Stone to decorate with their own unique intention and energy to keep and use later.
Finishing our experience with a guided Dadirri - a form of Indigenous meditation known as deep listening or deep contemplation.
Indigenous Art - ‘Cooinda’ means happy place for children to learn about traditional aboriginal art and culture in a sacred space. We will be intentionally creating an art piece which is a journey stone where we will infuse our energy into the stone. Their will be a short meditation where we connect and share together in this spiritual sacred art.
