The two days Yarning Circle and Workshop will address some of the core Wellness issues impacting on the everyday lives of participants. It will provide a unique insight into some of the ways in which to develop the coping mechanisms necessary to deal with some of the struggles and challenges in our life journey.  

Through the use of creative mediums, it will enable participants to explore some of the social, emotional, spiritual and cultural issues impacting on their health and wellbeing. The workshops will be both interactive and experiential and will encompass natural therapies, cultural ways of knowing and doing, Traditional Knowledge, cultural modalities such as imagery, symbolism, music, story-telling, song, dance and aromatherapy.

The workshops will not only create a culturally safe space for participants to freely express themselves, it will also provide a unique opportunity for participants to gain a greater insight and understanding into some of their own personal truths and challenges in their life journey.
