Monday 31st July
Fringe workshop (with Anique Radiant Heart): Australian Aboriginal Dreaming and the Goddess.
In Australia, there are no Goddesses per se in the Australian First Nations Peoples Dreaming.
The Dreaming is the Spirituality of the People, and is at the heart of Aboriginal life and the cultural protocols of living harmoniously with Mother Earth, Mother Nature and her local and cosmic communities. However, there are many feminine Creator Beings, and not all of them are “human”. Join Anique and Aunty Bilawara, as they unfold a rich tapestry of Australia Aboriginal stories and traditions from the Dreaming and their response to what might be sacred practice which incorporates this ancient lore from the oldest continuous surviving culture on Earth.
Wednesday 2nd August – afternoon
