Cessnock City Council is inviting members of the community to attend a free Wayapa Wuurrk introductory session for adults at Cessnock City Library on Saturday 27 May.
Wayapa is an Aboriginal earth connection practice that is based on ancient Indigenous wisdom. The practice focuses on taking care of the Earth as the starting point for creating Earth Mind Body Spirit wellbeing and uses narrative mindfulness, movement practice and promotion of sustainable living to create a space for sharing, yarning and connection.
The introductory session will be facilitated by Aboriginal Health Practitioner, Sarah Corrigan, of Rainbow Crow Collective and will run from 10am until 11.30am.
Library Services Co-ordinator, Rose-marie Walters, is encouraging community members to come along and take advantage of this unique experience.
“This is a great opportunity to learn about Aboriginal culture and improve your wellbeing,” Ms Walters said.
“If you’re curious or you’d like to learn more about living a healthier life through connection to Country and the importance of holistic health practices, I strongly encourage you to come along to the session.”
Bookings are essential. The sessions are intended to provide participants with an improved sense of wellbeing, community and healing.
