Connection to Country

Men of the MKP Australian Community,

Hi my name is Mark Williams, animal name Bidjar (Buck Possum), I live in Melbourne and did my NWTA in 2003 at Eagle Heights QLD, since then I have staffed 13 weekends here and in Nth America.

In the early days I have sat in I groups in Melbourne when we had only 3 men, holding  space for years and it is with great pride I see the MKPMelbourne community going from strength to strength, 2 x Igroups, developing connection to community, plans for hosting another training and even a group of men meeting regularly to look at their own ‘connection to country’ in the Melbourne area.
I am also an Aboriginal man who has at times bought to the forefront what I believe is a disconnect between an American based training and how that fits in a land which has been initiating men in the earth for thousands of years and hopefully how to value add to the amazing NWTA training. Ie: connection to land through traditional owners…….

I have sat in many circles and had many conversations about this and have always wanted some opportunity for men in the MKP to gain a deeper connection to the Mother(land), Aboriginal Australia and ultimately ‘SELF’.
So it’s after many years of conversation and waiting for the right avenue to present itself that another MKP Aboriginal brother Colin Moore and I would like you to join us for an exclusive opportunity in late October to experience for yourself ‘Connection to Country’.

Our host is a highly respected Aboriginal LORE man/elder who is giving a limited number of men the opportunity to come and participate in Ceremony, including Dreaming stories and Corroboree. Imagine yourself hearing 60,000 year old stories under 60 million stars with your MKP brothers.
So if you have ever wondered where to start or how to build on your understanding of Aboriginal Australia we suggest this would be a perfect place and opportunity or maybe you’re just ready for your next journey?

If any of this touches a chord with you please contact us ASAP….
