How is it that oral cultures, that didn't rely on writing, could memorise and accurately hand down vast amounts of information and knowledge for millennia?
Garminungeena, Jenny Thompson, talks about the importance and sacredness of song in Aboriginal culture; and demonstrates how deep emotions expressed through mournful wailing and singing, and the practice of deep listening to others and to Nature, can help in healing personal and planetary pain.
Garmi concludes the final part of her podcast with a message from the heart that it is time for all of us to "weave in a new Dreaming".
More about me
I am a non-indigenous Australian yearning to learn about our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage - the real history of this country. These podcast episodes are not my stories - I am just a conduit. The stories come from the hearts and minds of the people who tell them. I hope you enjoy listening to these incredible stories as much as I do!
