Leaders Gathering in the Central Desert
What does it take to lead this country into a new way…
The Young Shaman Foundation is supporting a new way of leadership in Australia, based on Indigenous ways, a tradition that has preserved and maintained the health of land and it’s people for thousands of years.
This is a four day journey in the central desert near Alice Springs. It is designed for entrepreneurs and pioneers working within social change or environmental advocacy. We gather to listen to the elders, to learn from each other and to develop our capacity for deep listening.
You will find within yourself a deeper connection to the land and to First Nations people. Inspiring within you a new sense of responsibility as a leader in your community.
Now taking expressions of interest for our 2020 gathering.
