Wayapa Workshops

“I believe that we are all Earth people, some are just more disconnected than others. As a Traditional Custodian, it is my responsibility to share my connection to this Country and teach others how to respect and care for it, to heal it and let it heal us. So that is why I created Wayapa.”

 Jamie Marloo Thomas

We dream of a world where connection means more than free Wi-Fi, where true wellness is available for all, and where Indigenous Knowledge is honoured and respected. Whether you’re feeling the ache of disconnection, consumed in a cycle of self-destruction, or can’t shake the feeling that something is missing in your life, we want you to know that you are worthy of deep connection. You belong to the Earth.

When you reconnect to the Earth, to Spirit and to your true self, you’ll stop reaching for the quick fix, the wonder drug or yet another way to numb your senses.

The truth is the First Australians lived very (very) well, for 80,000 years. Wayapa™ brings the wellness secrets of Australia’s Traditional Custodians to modern seekers. No matter who you are or where you come from, Wayapa™ is based on Indigenous Knowledge that benefits all people, and most importantly, the planet.

Through Wayapa Wuurrk, we are making this dream a reality.
