Tired of going around in circles?
The Dreaming Path has always been there, but in the modern-day world, it can be hard to find. There are so many demands on us – family, health, bills, a mortgage, a career – that it can be hard to remember what’s most important: you.
It’s time to reconnect with your story.
Through conversations, exercises, Dreamtime stories and key messages, Paul Callaghan and Uncle Paul Gordon will sit you around the fire and share knowledge that reveals the power of Aboriginal spirituality as a profound source of contentment and wellbeing for anyone willing to listen.
This ancient wisdom is just as relevant today as it ever was.
Themed chapters that bring together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal worldviews invite you to reflect on:
- Caring for our place and the importance of story
- Relationships, sharing and unity
- Love, gratitude and humility
- Learning and living your truth
- Inspiration and resilience
- Being present and healing from the past
The tools provided in this book will give you tips, practices, inspiration and motivation that can enable you to achieve a state of mind, body and spirit wellness you didn’t think possible.
Are you ready to connect with the Dreaming Path – to heal, renew and live a good story? It all starts with the first step.
‘I love this beautiful book. The wisdom of Aboriginal ways of thinking and acting are outlined in context of our modern world leadership challenges. The insights of Paul Callaghan – an Aboriginal man with leadership in Western organizations – are like leaves of practical input floating down a quiet stream of wisdom. It’s not a harsh, angry rejection of Western views and practices; it’s a gentle walk to a better view. The insights about leadership are powerful and timely. This should be required reading for anyone entering a leadership position in any walk of life.’ – Dr Bruce Perry, co-author with Oprah Winfrey of the #1 New York Times bestselling book What Happened to You?
