For thousands of years First Nations people have cared for and managed these lands, carefully cultivating intricate and sophisticated knowledge systems based on the fundamental belief that we are connected to all things.
Many women would love to go camping but maybe don’t always feel confident enough to get out there. Once the basics of camping safety are covered you’ll then participate in specifically selected activities designed to teach you how to cultivate your own connection to Country.
Lesson on basics of camping and caring for Country including:
– Equipment – Food/cooking – Campsite selection. – Fire making/safety – Set-up/pack-up – General safety advice
Guided mindfulness activities include Creating your connection with Country, Guided ‘listening to Country’ bush walks and Weaving workshops
