Between Earth, Sea & Sky: There Go I
Mid – late April, 2024
6 Nights - 7 Days
EXPLORE THE BEAUTY AND MAJESTY OF A DEEPLY MYSTERIOUS
AND BOUNTIFUL LAND FULL OF ANCIENT MAGIC.
Australia is my Prue’s birth-land and her families for many generations. Join her as she weaves an adventure in acknowledgment of Country. Experience a Welcome to Country and Corroboree, learn from the longest continuous culture on the earth about Bush-Tucker and creation stories. You will be visiting a part of Australia over a 1/2 a billion years old, of significant geo-heritage with evidence of some of the first forests & animals that appeared on earth. It is still home to plentiful flora & fauna which can be found nowhere else on planet. Immerse in the earth’s fecundity, the sea’s creative juices and the sky’s vast wisdom using various awareness practices & Continuum to catalyze and augment the flow of the sacred in ourselves and the earth we are an expression of.
A quiet, still pristine part of the country. The area has small towns with vibrant art and community – yet it is mostly National Park, and with sacred areas to the Aboriginal Peoples who have been here for millennia – over 60,000 years. You will be enveloped in nature and all its diverse splendor.
The retreat is an inclusive blend of daily meditative fluid movement & somatic awareness classes in Continuum. There will be guided walks in National Parks. The National Park is managed by the local Aboriginal Peoples – who identify as saltwater people. It is one of very few in the world that has given the land back to its original custodians. Learn about bush-tucker, ancestors and creation stories. There will be a Welcome to Country, Corroboree and cultural session to learn about the area from the oldest living civilization of the planet.
There is a beautiful beach and creek for swimming and wildlife encounters. Sneak a chance to Kayak & SUP in pristine rivers and estuaries. Aussie food and sightseeing excursions.
People traveling from the USA or overseas are encouraged to explore all that Australia offers further before or after this retreat.
Accommodation is in well-appointed relaxed Australian beach styled private homes with comfortable bedrooms and living areas. A 5 minute walk to a generally quiet beach with crystal clear waters.
We will be surrounded by the sea, the sky and the land with the stirrings of nature all around. Most mornings you will wake to see Kangaroos and Wallabies on the lawn, black cockatoos and white-bellied sea eagles flying overhead.

Acknowledging Country and First Nation Culture and Community
I recognise the continuous and deep connection to Country, of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples
as the first peoples of this nation.
In this way I respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land, waters, sea and sky.
I pay tribute to the Elders past and present and respect the collective ancestry that has brought us all here today.
It is a privilege to be teaching on Country and I hope that our work here in some way supports
true custodianship of this land.
