Over the last 4 decades you find juli with students and teachers in classrooms, nature's un-rooms, dialogue circles, 'work-play-activist' shops, community spaces, youth groups or most often of late, in Australia's first community hub for learning and change making - wildspace- where she is the community co-ordinator.Â
You find a deep listener, a co-learning teacher who plays, explores and works with community to move toward all benefiting ~ as people find empowerment to be unique, resilient and responsible learner-activists.... at best,Â enmeshed in an interdependent community.
In 2016 she was blessed to work the facilitator training with Joanna, Annie, Mutima and a community of learners. In 2017 she continued with John Seed. WTR became the foundation of her engagement and suffused all. Two years ago she co-foundedÂ wildspace, encouraging the spirit of collaboration, questioning and experimentation; a place open to all who wish to learn and teach, to gather and contribute towards greater individual, community and planetary wellbeing.
Two day WTR workplay-activist workshops are held regularly throughout the year at wild space in the Northern Rivers of NSW in Australia and can be arranged elsewhere.Â Following participation in a 2 day, you are invited to join the fortnightly WTR- BIG picture activist network group we have founded. Herein we dream up, plan and join local activist groups, study books, explore films and support one another to understand and act upon the Great Unravelling- Great Turning.
What's a workshop like? We are oft told that stepping into our workplay activist workshops is akin to being warmly invited into what could be one's authentic home space; a family-like belonging from the opening simple breath work standing on the land- at once both uniquely personal and creatively collaborative.
People feel deeply held in their vulnerability, in a shared stark honesty and through a probing exposure of and movement through pain; they hear their voice, sometimes for the first time and those of fellow participants. We move through the WTR spiral onto seeing with new eyes and some well known and fresh new experiences to 'grow' forward!
There is a playfulness, a curious explorative feel while welcoming and honouring the gamut of deep feelings for our planet home, each other and ourselves. We aim to find a balance of heart, hand and head which is supported through partnering other living beings; the land, her river and trees and a handful of animal friends.
