‘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.
