Tired of going around in circles?
The Dreaming Path has always been there, but in the modern-day world, it can be hard to find. There are so many demands on us – family, health, bills, a mortgage, a career – that it can be hard to remember what's most important: you.
It's time to reconnect with your story.
Through conversations, exercises, Dreamtime stories and key messages, Paul Callaghan and Uncle Paul Gordon will sit you around the fire and share knowledge that reveals the power of Aboriginal spirituality as a profound source of contentment and wellbeing for anyone willing to listen.
This ancient wisdom is just as relevant today as it ever was.
Themed chapters that bring together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal worldviews invite you to reflect on:
- Caring for our place and the importance of story
- Relationships, sharing and unity
- Love, gratitude and humility
- Learning and living your truth
- Inspiration and resilience
- Being present and healing from the past
