In this podcast (episode 5), Garminungeena tells us about a concept and spiritual practice called dadirri (pronounced da-did-ee), a word from the Nauiyu (Daly River) area in the Northern Territory. Garmi is an authorised teacher of the healing practice of dadirri.
Below is an extract from respected Aboriginal Elder, Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr about dadirri:
It is our most unique gift. It is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to our fellow Australians. ... It is inner, deep listening and quiet, still awareness.

In exploring what that 'something' might be, I looked to Indigenous knowledge and in doing so, became enthralled with the intriguing yet very complex concept of multi-dimensional songlines.
