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

Testimonies by past participants

"I can't express the gratitude I have for this work. The change I feel inside, the newfound appreciation for Nature and my own wisdom I find there. The connection to country, other men and my own soul has been so enriching. I have been propelled into a new journey to soul .. ho!" - Billy, Brisbane

"The team of facilitators are gentle, nurturing men who helped understand my limiting behaviour and how to start the process to being authentic. These guys also showed my son how to behave as a man; many thanks to all involved." -  Dave, Ipswich

"I have participated in many PD courses over the years personally and through work. This weekend is one of my top ten experiences! I arrived with no expectations and was gifted with one of the most beautiful and powerful soulful experiences. Post weekend I have a simple clear path forward with no need to analyse or pour over notes.
Highly recommended." -
Darren, Maleny

Ancestor Circle

Date TBA


"I feel strongly that I am under the influence of things or questions which were left incomplete and unanswered by my parents and grandparents and more distant ancestors. It often seems as if there were an impersonal karma within a family, which is passed on from parents to children. It has always seemed to me that I had to ... complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages had left unfinished." - Carl Jung

Perhaps you are the one to complete this work for your family line?


Steve holds Ancestor Circles at Kupidabin Wilderness in the beautiful Samford Valley, as well as other venues in SE Queensland.

Steve facilitates an Ancestor Circle that was passed to him during a Vision Quest in 2013. He uses his experience with ceremony and family constellations to hold space for participants to connect with their ancestors.

The Circle is opened in a shamanic way calling in directions, animal energies, elements, and the Ancestors of this place. Our own ancestors, particularly our four grandparents, are are invited to join us. The connection enables us to acknowledge the gifts passed down and is an opportunity to hand back what is not ours.

Why connect with ancestors?

* they want to support us in this life

* they want us to help heal the family soul

* they want us to hand back stuff that is not ours to carry

* they want us to know and use our gifts and talents

* they want us to stop trauma and fear passing down to our great grandchildren

* they want us to remember who we are
