HEALING

  
We are inviting wisdom keepers, holistic therapists, tribal and traditional healers and space holders to assist us in the healing space at the gathering.

The Arrernte Nungkari are experienced healers who know the ways of their land well, and we invite you to come and learn with them.  There will be storytelling, smoking ceremonies, sharing of modalities and much that will unfold as our relationships deepen and two way learning emerges.

We are excited to say that the Arrernte Nungkari are open to non traditional modalities, especially those that can help with trauma, addiction and spiritual sovereignty.   Expressions of interest to assist are being taken but the discretion as to what is practiced and delivered on the land lies with the custodians of the land. If you wish to volunteer your services, wisdom, learning and skills please fill out the form below.  

If you have a project or idea, you will need to be comfortable with explaining your modality to representatives from the Arrernte custodians.   You may be asked to show your work before we can allow you to practise on the land.  The custodians will exercise discretion as to what is practiced and delivered, so you can rest assure of a safe space for the carrying out of any activities that go ahead. This is all in keeping with respect for the law and culture of the Arrernte and upholding protocol. These gatherings are about the two-way sharing of knowledge:  Just coming and talking about your modality may actually create necessary first steps in intercultural education!
  
Alternatively, you may wish to participate in events already being organized, in which case please make a general expression of interest. All are welcome to express your interest regardless of your skills, talents, etc. Above all, we are seeking people who bring positive energy and a willingness to move beyond existing paradigms in building a positive future for our children and grandchildren: without government, free from financial enslavement, and living as guardians of a sustainably managed environment.


WHO WE ARE

  
We are  ‘kwertengwerle’ (ritual caretakers) of the central and eastern Arrernte.

We invite you to a cultural exchange on Arrernte lands.

We want to make the closing of the Pine Cap U.S. spy and drone base an act of healing and cultural co-creation.

To do this we are offering to host a number of healing camps which welcome, embrace and support the 2016 Alice Springs Peace Convergence   19 September - 3 October 2016.

Other camps and activities will happen at different times and in different places before and after the Peace Convergence. They will be themed on Healing, Permaculture, Learning, Arts and Action.

Aims of our Co-creation

To re-imagine the lore of land.

To de-colonise the law of the land.

To co-create an earth caring and peace loving culture, which both celebrates the ancient ways
and adapts the best of the rest.

To promote, apply and cultivate the healing arts in this time of epochal transition.

To reach out to the care takers from all lands to join us in bringing unity and healing to the Earth.

Expected Outcome
A garden of cultural delights planted amongst original and non-original peoples - a living example of what is possible for people wanting to live in peace, in harmony with the land, in accordance with the ancient ways and also with the new ways that changing conditions and technologies bring. 

  

Expression of Interest Form

  
Do please send in your ideas and skills!! 

But please do not hold any attachment to being a ‘missionary’ or ‘chosen one’– this is about positive co-creation and cultural exchange.
 We have a group of experienced practitioners dealing with enquiries and are keen to assist a meaningful dialogue in the times up to the camps.    

We are open to what you suggest, and worry not if you are new to this work and simply wish to get more involved.  Humility and space holding will be some of the most noble ways you can be involved....
