Making Meaning, Creating..
making meaning through creative practice...
You have to feel it, to know it, to embrace it, to protect it
It’s a process of awakening that spiritual connection to the Ocean, Land and Sky
Our journey to deepening knowledge
Our process for deepening knowledge is by experimenting, exploring and understanding our ancestral practices by actually practicing it our selves. It is through our own creative practice that knowing emerges as we immersed ourselves, connecting, feeling and embodying ideas, thoughts, learnings.
