This is a PLEDGE to Australia – Our First Nations People.

The oldest surviving culture on planet earth

Culture is the fabric of any society. Culture Lore is what governed our first nations people for thousands of years. Lore is interwoven as a guiding principle based on a lifestyle, values and certain collective protocols. Friday the 10th of December is the United Nations declaration of Human Rights Day, and so we launch this platform for all Australians to engage in this space.

A wellbeing Lifestyle that nurtures a collective wellbeing for all of us is vitally important. This country is built on ceremony, thousands of years this land has been worshipped by our first nations people. ‘cultivating wellness back onto country’

Growth in stillness

Even if your plans have changed, even if your timeline is different, even if this year has not unfolded the way you thought it would you are not falling behind.

Real growth is not always just constant forward motion. Growth is letting yourself settle, it letting yourself blossom, it’s letting yourself see how much good is already in your life before you hunger for more. You are allowed to take days to grieve, to do nothing. You are allowed to press your plans back until they make more sense. You do not exist on a single schedule; your fate is not to arrive at each set point at precisely the second you think you should. That’s not what you’re here for. That’s not what this whole thing is about. You cannot miss the exit. There are no wrong turns. Life is a living, breathing thing because it’s an extension of you.

We are not only making progress when we are clearly discernibly growing. We are also making progress when we take time to simply be. Take time for stillness to listen to self, self is nature in progress.
