Spirit! event a high point of the LeaF Festival

“A special high point of the LeaF Learning Festival was the Spirit of the Land forum at Cedar Bar on Sunday morning where stories of land and spirit were told,” says Lisa Siegel, Spirit host and Coordinator of the Centre for Ecological Learning.
“One person told me afterwards they thought Mark Graham was “the most inspiring scientist” they had ever come across.
“Spirit stories from Uncle Michael Jarrett, Uniting Earth minister Jason John, and Insight Meditation teacher Will James had the entire audience rapt and we have been receiving feedback ever since from people wanting the event to be repeated.”

‘Spirit!’ event coming to Bellingen June 15

How did our river form? How did the plateau get so high? Where did the valleys come from? Why did it all happen that way, and where do humans fit into the picture? Join Gumbaynggirr language teacher Michael Jarrett, Eco-minister Jason John, and Buddhist teacher Will James, in discussion with local ecologist Mark Graham, to explore how geology, spirituality, and language flow together to create knowledge and culture.

This unique event will be happening on Sunday 15 July at 9:30am as part of the LeaF (Learning Festival) at Bello Winter Music, and is brought to you by the Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub and the Centre for Ecological Learning. It is sure to be a highlight of the LeaF this year!

The LeaF, now in its 4th year, is an eco-learning festival that takes place as part of the wonderful Bello Winter Music festival. As festival-goers have come to expect, LeaF workshops will again cover a rich and exciting array of topics, facilitated by passionate local presenters from nine different organisations on behalf of the Bellingen Shire Learning Alliance (BSLA) and the newly established Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub (CCRSH).

‘Spirit!’ takes place on Sunday 15 July from 9:30-11:00 am at Cedar Bar & Kitchen in Bellingen.
