About the talk:

“Living the Dreamtime in Everyday Life.”

What does it mean to walk in the footsteps of our Ancestors? How do I honour the Dreamtime Beings? What are dreaming eyes and dreaming ears? What does it mean to sing the land? What are songlines and what do they teach us? What are the sacred fire teachings? What ethics do they impart? What do Dreamtime stories tell us about caring for country and each other? How do I discover my dreaming and what can it teach me? What can I learn from being silent?
