An introduction to Wayapa®

Wayapa Wuurrk® is an earth mindfulness & action practice based on ancient Indigenous wisdom that focuses on taking care of the environment as the starting point for creating Earth Mind Body Spirit well-being.

Living in harmony with their environment is what sustained Australian Aboriginal people to be one of the world’s oldest, continuous living culture – for over 100,000 years!

Today, for most of us, we have become disconnected from our environment, from our tribe, from our food and from our Spirit.

Through a trademarked method of Earth mindfulness, storytelling, movement meditation and taking action to look after the planet, Wayapa® provides a sense of purpose and belonging to the Earth while creating holistic well-being.

Become a Certified Wayapa® Practitioner and help spread the Wayapa® message of healing the planet by reconnecting people to Mother Earth.

Never has there been a more crucial time in humanity than right now to remember that no matter where we come from, we all descend from ancestors who had the knowledge and wisdom to look after their environment to survive and thrive.

What our Practitioners say….

I really loved the sense of community Sara & Jamie created in the Diploma course, and I felt incredibly supported by the whole group throughout the process. It was a very safe and encouraging learning environment where all ideas and backgrounds were welcome and appreciated.

One of my favourite aspects of the course was the rich conversations and stories everyone shared in relation to their own connection to the earth, their culture or their community. On top of all the fantastic Wayapa training and practice, I learned so much from everyone else in the room! Additionally, Sara & Jamie’s continuing support post-Diploma has been unmatched with any other course I’ve ever done, and I am so grateful for their commitment to building such a strong community of engaged Wayapa Wuurrkers. I highly recommend this training!

I undertook the Wayapa Diploma Course in June as a part of my professional development for my workplace, which has been really beneficial in my role. But what I wasn’t expecting was how much it has changed my life.

I practice Wayapa everyday, sometimes twice a day!! And am loving it more every day. My movement is improving all the time and have had some other benefits as well. I’ve lost 18kgs since, have quit smoking and no longer need the blood pressure medication I was on!

So to say Wayapa is life changing is pretty accurate!

Louise Parkinson

I went into the Wayapa Diploma course with a huge admiration, respect and love for our Aboriginal people and their culture, however I still felt very disconnected from them and I didn’t understand why until going through the 7 days intensive with Jamie and Sara, everything fell into place right at the last day before my presentation!

I not only feel more connected to this amazing culture but more connected to the earth and what that means! My indigenous earth soul has been awakened! I’ve been on a mission since to find out more about my Romani Gypsy and Indian culture and their Earth Connection! It’s always been there through the ancestors stories but for some of us it got lost along the way to the modern world.

“I believe that we are all Earth people, some are just more disconnected than others. As a descendant of the First Peoples, it is my responsibility to share my connection to this Earth 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.”

A message from Jamie and Sara

Ngata! Hi! We’re Jamie & Sara, Co-Founders of Wayapa® Wuurrk which translates into Connect Country in the languages of the Gunnai & Maara peoples.

So many people have shared with us how disconnected they feel. It causes them so much pain. They feel lonely and isolated. They feel helpless and out of control, often choosing self-destructive behaviour because at least it numbs them for a little while.

We have both felt the pain of living disconnected lives… which is why we are so happy to finally share the gift of Wayapa® globally through our amazing Wayapa® Accredited Practitioners

We know Wayapa® wuurrks because it is based on the ancient knowledge of one of the world’s oldest living people, Jamie’s people…Aboriginal Australians. There is so much richness to be shared from Indigenous thinking.

Thousands of people in Australia have already experienced the wellness benefits of living a Wayapa® Lifestyle… and now you you can be part of the movement.

Indigenous people believe it takes a village to raise a child…but we go one step further, we believe it takes a village to feel connected so when you become a Wayapa® Wuurrker, you will become a part of the Wayapa® Wuurrk World…a global movement to help heal our relationship with the planet and in turn, create wellbeing for ourselves.

We hope you will join us and let Wayapa® Wuurrk for you and your clients!

Jamie & Sara
