LIVE event to celebrate connection, bringing the mama magic to honour sacred country and healing of place

About this event

It has been to long since we all connected in person but we are delighted to host this very special event on Quiberie land featuring the incredible Susan Moylan-Coombs.

We are bringing back the mama love with a very special morning tea to celebrate you.

You will be treated to a delicious and enriching morning tea with all food, refreshments and our incredibly inspiring featured guest included in this very special morning tea event outside on country.

This live event is also part of our monthly Creativity and Healing Mater Class Series, showcasing leading experts in their creative and healing fields to bring you collective wisdom, specific content, practical skills and knowledge for your own personal and professional growth, and move towards a deeper place of healing.

SPIRIT COUNTRY - Our theme is about Healing on Country

There are many layers of meaning in this very special gathering: Susan will share her incredible story of survival as part of the stolen generation, and her affinity to country which spans her original ancestral place in the Northern Territory to Sydney's northern beaches. She will share how the land mass of Australia is a healing place and how our understanding of earth can help bring about understanding one another. This is how we can begin the process for collective healing of ancestral trauma.

Creating ceremony - Susan will facilitate some traditional rituals and ceremony using fire, sacred gum and ochre to bring a meaningful and interactive experience.

Special gifts and delicious morning tea for you: as always we have some wonderful take home gifts and giveaways to celebrate and honour you. PLUS delicious food and refreshments for you to savour and enjoy.

This will be a very nourishing, inspiring and spiritual morning to remember.

About Our Location: On Quiberie Land (Clark Park, Lavender Bay Parklands)

This event will held outside on Quiberie land, or Clark Park, which is the top park featuring spectacular views over Lavender Bay to the harbour bridge and the city.

The Lavender Bay Foreshore is a narrow strip of waterfront land that links Quibaree Park to Luna Park, the Harbour Bridge and beyond.

Wendy Whiteley created an intimate, artistic and attractive space, known as Wendy's Whiteley's Secret Garden. This sited on land which was occupied by the Cammeraygal (Gameraigal) clan and was known as Gooweebahree or Quibaree (believed to mean “fresh water”). This is on an area of railway land just below Clark Park. You can enjoy a wander around before or after our event, very much worth it!
