“If the pandemic that began and engulfed the world in 2020 taught us anything at all it is that we are utterly and inevitably interconnected—and not only with each other, but also with this earth on which we wholly depend in all its brilliance, beauty, fearsomeness and biodiversity.

It was far more than a day of delightful company; it was also a day of deep learning, especially about Dadirri. This is not just a spiritual practice taught by the world’s oldest surviving culture. It’s a way of being that Australia and the world could greatly benefit from. Above all, it returns us to a sense of BELONGING: belonging to one another and to the earth on which we depend.
