Elders Mystery School

We are pleased to announce our tenth EMS retreat is now open for bookings.

September, 2021 at Tamworth (NSW)

Exploring the Spiritual Law and Cultural Lore of the land and the people

The Mystery School is our flagship indigenous program taught by elders from local places as well as invited national and international elders. We are now into our ninth year with over a dozen elders and hundreds of people having taken part in the journey.

Our Elders are the keepers of closely held wisdom and teachings that have been preserved and passed down through oral tradition. This knowledge is now taught through the traditional shamanic Mystery School experience where we live together as a tribe in one place and draw upon the environment around us as our learning circle.

The Mystery School helps to bring indigenous knowledge into the light for all to learn and to heal. We will journey and connect deeply with ourselves and each other through deepening our connection with sacred Mother Earth. Your immersion in this program will be transformational and many of our participants return each year.

May you find your answers and guidance from sitting in circle at the sacred fire with our beautiful and loving elders.
