Learning from traditional Australian Cultures
How much do we know about what underlies the world’s oldest surviving continuous culture, here in our own country? What sort of spirituality and philosophy has been practiced? What lessons can we learn? We’ll set out to explore some traditions and practices concerning lawfulness, carefulness for family and land, and living out the truth of the connectedness of all things.
