Connection to Country Meditation

The practice of meditation, deep-listening and reflecting has always been an integral part of Aboriginal life and the maintenance of wellbeing. Sue-Anne Hunter, from Aboriginal Cultural Consultancy, is a proud Wurundjeri and Ngurai illum wurrung woman. She is trained social worker and proficient in multiple therapeutic interventions in which she combines with cultural knowledge to bring about healing change.

Sue-Anne is also the niece of our long-time friend and Ngurungaeta (Elder or Head Man) of the Wurundjeri people, Murrundindi. In conjunction with Danielle Begg from the The Yoga Impact Charity, Sue-Anne has developed a short connecting to Country meditation.

Additionally, she has produced a children’s version with her daughter which takes you on a journey through Country to assist kids to feel comfortable, safe, grounded and regulated. See Jedda's meditation for children below.
