Remembering our Wholeness
One-day workshop - postponed - date TBA
with Julie & Steve
We invite you to join us for a one-day experiential workshop where we will be guided through a nature-based, holistic re-visioning of the human psyche – that is, our healthy multi-dimensional Self.
During the workshop we will explore and practice ways to cultivate the healthy facets of our Self so that we can support the wounded aspects of our Self from a place of wholeness. In this way the focus is about wholeness which supports Self-healing, Self-empowerment and greater expression of our unique Self.
By cultivating the untapped depths of our healthy Self we develop the psychological resources to:
• lay the foundation for true healing, Self-healing
• change our perspective and embrace our fragmentedness and woundedness from a place of wholeness
• enhance our personal fulfilment and participation in the earth community
• better navigate a descent to Soul, and to enhance our capacity to manifest and embody our unique place in this world
• enhance our experience of our interrelationship with all things
What you’ll experience on the day:
• Conversations, teachings, new perspectives based on he teachings of Bill Plotkin PhD
• Nature-based activities to experience and embed the learnings
• A renewed vision of our unique and magnificent wholeness
Steve and Julie are both trained Personal Development Guides who work in a variety of nature-based ceremonies and practices that support people on their unique journey.
The workshop will be held at the beautiful Kupidabin Wilderness at Mt Samson near Samford.

Testimony - "I wanted to write to you today and acknowledge the profound gift that last night was to me. I was/am so touched by the generosity and the depth of the ceremony and space held. I really feel like it was a magical experience, from the fist moment of seeing and feeling the Ancestor rocks come in, let alone when the sparkled! Truly a peak experience for me! I’m feeling centred and present today and find myself dropping into re-accessing the feeling of the warmth from the stones and the shared space going right through me. Thank you for the beautiful and powerful healing, valuable teachings, supportive words, safe space, deep care and nourishing soup :)" - Nicole, Brisbane
Testimony - words cannot express the depth and gratitude I have for Steve’s work. I attended Steve’s sweat lodge and both of my grandfathers visited me, each gave me a message relating to a legal battle I am about to embark on. For the past two months there were strong moral struggles within myself regarding this situation which was resolved during the sweat lodge. “Stand your ground, you are on the right path”, said my grandfather Max. Grandpa Willie said, “don’t forget your kindness” - Yvonne, Brisbane
