The Wellbeing Connexion
A culturally safe and inclusive service.
THE WELLBEING CONNEXION
The Wellbeing Connexion is an education, consultancy and healing service.
A sacred space that encourages cross cultural connections, collaborations and personal sovereignty. We value education, guidance and mentorship that allows you to come into new knowledge that expands your ways of knowing, being and doing.
We are committed to creating safe space, building community connections and supporting self-healing. We do this through delivering workshops, training and events, and consultancy - all grounded in a holistic mindset.
When you’re unlearning & relearning, no matter the topic, you’re expanding into a new level of consciousness that requires you to go inward and deeply reflect.
We offer you the opportunity to do this in a few ways.
- Cultural Awareness & Truth-Telling: A 7-week Online Immersion
- Consultations tailored to your Business
- Educational Workshops and Webinars
- Retreat Support and Sponsorship (coming soon)
Free Resources - coming soon
- Earth Connection
- Food & Nutrition
- Social Justice etc.
WBX is a space that centres you and your lived experience and that centres offerings on access & equity. It’s important to us that everything we offer is accessible to all and we are transparent in saying that offerings are discounted or at no cost for Aboriginal and/Torres Strait Islander individuals and organisations.
What does this mean?
It means that we apply the Aboriginal definition of health to all of our education, resources and workshops.
We know that this is not only going to serve our community but it will serve everyone. This is the very foundation that is missing from the modern day society that we are all living in. A holistic approach, earth, mind, body, spirit, is essential to reclaiming our sovereignty and regaining power and control over our own lives.
Here at WBX is where evidence based and intuitive guidance meet.
We believe that there has to be strong intention & purpose behind the creation of a service or offering and so we carefully curate experiences and teachings that allow you to not only express who you really are but to realise your full potential as a human being.
We meet you where you are.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
that's me! Mikaela Egan
Hey you mob,
I’m Mikaela Egan, a proud Muthi Muthi/Gunditjmara woman on my father's side and a white Australian on my mother's side with heritage that goes back to Scotland, Ireland, Belgium and England. I’m a daughter, sister, aunty, partner and community member. Family is the heart and soul of everything I do and they always come first.
In my working life I am the Founder of The Wellbeing Connexion, a Photographer, Artist, Life Coach and Public Health Practitioner working in Aboriginal health for the past 5 years.
I’ve worked in the areas of food & nutrition, health promotion and community development. I have experience in program design and development, policy development, evaluation, research, resource development and social marketing.
Over the years I have grown to stand strong in grounding Aboriginal ways of knowing, being and doing at the centre of everything I do as an individual or as a team member in an organisation in this sector.
Progressively over the past 5 years I have learnt a lot about how we as individuals operate within a larger system and just how much we are influenced by external agendas, colonial thinking and doing more of the same.
I love working in my community to help create healthier lives for our mob. I believe that we can truly set an example by being the change we wish to see in order to achieve the best outcomes for all people.
My philosophy in life is to create change and evoke healing in our own lives and communities in order to move forward and live our best possible lives with the resources that we have. As a creative person I am able to express myself and my culture through different art forms, teaching, coaching and I am truly blessed to be able to openly share that with not only the Aboriginal community but to all Australians.
