At Gunawirra we believe that connecting with our culture benefits our physical and emotional wellbeing. Our Women’s Business Program focuses on making ancient wisdom, tools, and culture relevant to our families in the 21st century. It is designed to reconnect mothers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children with a sense of belonging, enhancing their knowledge and understanding of cultural practices. In this way, culture is a living expression that helps our mothers to feel confident as women, secure in the value of their own knowledge and worth.
“My focus is always on a contemplative understanding of cultural practice where we are always exploring the why of what we are doing. This is important to build an understanding on the interconnectedness of all of life’s systems.”
Joanne Selfe | Women’s Cultural Facilitator
