Gratitude on Country into the Sovereign Self as Earth Custodians
Strength in the Sovereign Self – Connecting to Country
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi is often credited with saying this. But little do people know, Gandhi actually didn’t say this at all! Gandhi said, “We but mirror the world.”
I recently embarked on writing my first book – “Gratitude on Country; a cry for a simpler life”
To quote Kaurna Aboriginal Elder’ Uncle Lewis Yarlupurka O’Brien who I am grateful for his time with my manuscript, and our talks and yarning about – Muka-Muka – ‘to mirror what we see’ and emerge into an ecological literacy world. When we understand First People and language we begin to appreciate ‘country’ and the value of connecting to country.
How we see, feel, and listen to Earth and all she is; Craig will share his walk in the two worlds inspiring people to see the wisdom in sovereign systems, and structures and finding deep adaptation into the rhythm of the earth for business, family, and people to move into more virtues – Gratitude of Country.
Exploring Australia’s call for a Referendum and voice to the Federal Parliament of Australia, with much political uncertainty about what will this voice mean in the Governments constitution. How does Climate Coaching and a country that is seen as the Heart of our mother- Earth? Understanding Sovereignty of Earth and the Sovereign Self – a Country that is breaking into a new identity as a Sovereign Nation. The world needs this story to unfold for which Craig will begin to explore this over the 90-minute workshop.
