What we do
Adults of all ages and cultures are welcome to take part in our project. The focus is on reconnecting to nature, so we take walks, swim in deep spring fed rock pools and spend time in quiet contemplation both at Peace Valley and in the bush. Tools for personal development and growth from Joanna Macy's 'Work that reconnects' and Otto Scharmer's 'Theory U' are offered for those who wish.
We take part in sowing, planting, mulching, watering etc in our permaculture garden and work in collaboration with Bindarrabi Community caring for the local ecosystems. Once a month we join Killarney Bushcare to work in the bush in the Cambanoora Gorge. On a daily basis we share work which supports all visitors, such as wood collection, cooking, cleaning, clearing up and maintenance of facilities at the camp. There can be some construction to be done which includes working with stone, painting, dismantling pallets and wood work e.g. making shelves.
Our days are very flexible and what we do is led by the needs expressed by the land and the people.
- Get up and dressed
- Guided meditation
- If wished do our own daily fitness practice e.g. Yoga
- Share breakfast, lunch and dinner
- During the day we spend time in the gardens at Peace Valley or Bindarrabi attending to the plants, take walks along the river, in the bush or assist Killarney Bushcare in the Cambanoora Gorge. We take time to meditate in nature, to sit in circle and do deep sharing or just to relax as desired.
The emphasis is on living, working and playing together in a way which brings deep contentment and peace, builds relationship with each other, our natural rhythms and the environment around us.
