Event description
Rains Retreat 2020: Free series of events from July - October

About this Event

Each year the Buddhist Society of WA hosts a variety of events at our centre in Nollamara while our usual teachers, the monks and nuns, go on their own personal retreat.

This year, post social isolation, we tried something a little different to boost a sense of community, friendship, positivity, well being, and most importantly, a bit of fun and play.

We have had an amazing couple of months filled with an awesome lineup of inspiring speakers, helpful workshops and some fun community nights. And we have finally come full circle with our last speaker for 2020 being our first as well. Shaun Nannup will conclude our Rains Retreat series for 2020 with more of his heart felt stories from this great land that provide a sense of connection, and healing and belonging.  

We will be having food and drinks so come early if you are free. From 7:30-8pm we will be having a guided meditation to melt away the stress from your week so you can relax into your weekend. Or you are welcome to join us from 8-9pm for the main act and stay afterwards for a cuppa and a chat.

For more events please follow us on Eventbrite or Facebook (search Dhammaloka events).

All are welcome.

Friday 2nd October: Stories from Noongar Country Part 2 "Coming of the Sun"

Shaun Nannup is a Whadjuk Nyoongar man and Aboriginal elder. He is passionate community leader and master storyteller who is a strong advocate for keeping his culture alive and passing on the ways of his ancestors. He uses Aboriginal spirituality and cultural and psychological ways, to speak of love and unity and healing from within. Anyone and everyone who has attended his workshops, talks, and Welcome to Countrys, speaks of his ability to inspire and connect, always focusing on our humanity and common ground. Shaun conveys his message through the art of storytelling which always makes for an inspiring, engaging and moving night.

Coming of the Sun is a continuation of the Noongar story of the Carers of Everything. A story which encompasses care, respect, values, a sense of belonging and place. It makes landmarks of the South West come alive and nurtures an awe and appreciation not only for this magnificent land, but for the Noongar people who have acquired so much knowledge and wisdom from learning to live in harmony with nature, generation after generation after generation after generation.
