WISE PLAY – NATURE PLAYGROUP

FOR CHILDREN (AGED 0 – 6) PARENTS ATTEND

Mondays 9.30AM – 11.30AM

In order for children to bond with nature and the earth, they must spend time outside. Sitting in circle, we learn through song, story and handcraft.

We aim to create an inspiring space for the children to lead their own play, and a place for the adults to learn how to support that. Wise Play is an authentic parenting and learning initiative that connects, celebrates care for Country, each other, and our non-human kin. More than anything, Wise Play is full of joy, wonder and fun-key ingredients for learning how to learn.

WISE KIDS – BUSH SCHOOL

FOR CHILDREN (AGED 5 – 10)

Thursdays 9AM – 3PM
We Gather, Collect, Move and Make…

Our mission comes to life in the form of community-building, ecological restoration, and regenerative education. This encompasses a large spectrum of nature connection, from learning about native plants to full-on living off grid in the style of earth-based hunter-gatherer-gardeners. Resilience is a culture’s ability to withstand or bounce back from large-scale environmental and social changes. This class aim to create resilience because it is about getting the things you need to live from the land you live on in a regenerative manner. Sessions of these characteristics will not only support healthy, positive developments during middle childhood, they also put in place the kind of safety net needed to support, positive passage through early and middle adolescence.

WISE WOMEN – MONTHLY CIRCLE

Full Moon gathering 6PM – 9PM

As women, we have always been the backbone, the knowledge holders of what makes living possible for our families and communities. In these modern times we’ve become disconnected from our womb mysteries. It’s time for us to reclaim that power through ritual, community & ancestral remembrance.

Read more below:

  • If you believe that motherhood is a transformational journey – an inner revolution to personal power!
  • If you believe there are no bad children, only children who are having a hard time.
  • If you believe that there are no bad mothers, but mothers living in deep emotional poverty without family support, community and sisterhood nourishment.
  • If you believe that connected mothering demands intense levels of commitment and deliberate practice.
  • If you believe good mothering means striving for connection.
  • If you believe no matter what situation you’re in -empathy will help.

Well, my dear… Let’s come together! We hold space for each other’s dreams, celebrate and cry together, find practical solutions to each other’s hardships, learn from each other.

We will busy our hands through primitive craft. Heal and Rise! We will finish with a grounding morning tea and plenty of time for community connections. When we invested in healing our connections to self and other women. When we initiate an inner activation through earth connected parenting. When we journey beyond self-limitation to a life of wild freedom

This is community medicine!
