Wayapa Wuurrk - ‘connect country’ one on one or with a friend.
Experience Wayapa Wuurrk in a tailored one on one or partner session. Wayapa Wuurrk means ‘connect country’ and is an earth mindfulness, narrative meditation and movement practice founces in Aboriginal wisdom in caring for and connecting to country. Wayapa was created by Jamie Marloo Thomas (Gunditjmara and Gunnai) and Sara Jones. Wayapa is the only known Indigenous healing modality that is registered with the International Institute of Complementary Therapies. Wayapa is a unique combination of story telling, slow, fluid, meditative movement, stillness and connection with nature in a repeatable format invoking connection with 14 elements in nature with movements that can be practiced to the individuals level and ability or as a visualisation. Wayapa is for everyone, Indigenous and non-Indigenous and promotes reconnection with the earth as a starting point for wellness and healing based on the understanding that Aboriginal people lived in wellness and harmony with the earth for more than 65,000 years. We all belong to the earth and we all benefit from remembering and revering our connection to it. In this way, we heal the earth and heal ourselves. While Wayapa Wuurrk provides a repeatable practice, its underlying foundation and principles also embed and influence our actions outside of this ritual, inspiring us to make daily choices that improve the health of the planet, ourselves and each other.
Sessions are 1 hour in person at Thaedra studio in Torquay or online via zoom.
