Duration: 2 hours

Venue: The Anzac Memorial Centenary Extension Auditorium, Hyde Park

Winhangadhurinya is the Wiradjuri word for meditation, deep listening, knowing, reflecting. Participate in an Aboriginal meditation ceremony guided by Aboriginal cultural practitioners Milan Dhiiyaan – Wailwaan/Yuin man Millmullian (Laurance Magick Dennis) and Wiradjuri/Ngemba woman Nyimirr (Fleur Magick Dennis).

This unique workshop offers both an authentic and heartfelt introduction to Aboriginal culture and a chance to take time out in a hectic world. Sit for a while in connection with our dreaming and experience the healing space of Aboriginal spirituality. Let our connection to our ancestral knowledge guide you in developing a deeper connection to your inner self and the oneness of all that is here in this world.

This workshop is mainly designed for adults. Children over the age of 12 who can sit still and quiet for long periods of time are also welcome.

I have attended more than a dozen of Milan Dhiyaan’s Aboriginal Cultural Presentations, from meditation at the Australian Museum, to sacred sites visits, story & dance workshops to name a few. Every time I learn something more & at greater depth of the richness of Aboriginal Culture. After more than 50 years of connection with Indigenous people all over NSW, I find them outstanding. Come join the amazing experiences they have to offer. Jane Purkiss, former lecturer in socio-linguistics and head tutor, Aboriginal Education Unit, University of Western Sydney
