Connection to Country Meditation

During the COVID-19 lockdown in Melbourne in 2020, we collaborated with Wurundjeri woman and therapist Sue-Anne Hunter, to create a Connection to Country meditation

The Connection to Country meditation is available on our YouTube Channel and The Yoga Impact Charity App.

 

It was recently featured in Eingana - The Journal of Environment Education Victoria and has been accessed over 1400 times by people all around Australia. 

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We acknowledge that these lands were stolen and sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
