The Healing Journeys came about after conversations with Aunty Grace Crossley and talking about our other Cultural programs. The idea was to reconnect with the songlines and water paths following them and connecting with the stories of the places and other women in other communities. She spoke of the songlines that connect the whole of our country and in fact the whole earth. The Healing Journeys became about bringing people out of separation and isolation by Elders accompanying women on journeys along the South Coast songlines and providing education about traditional sites of significance, and family and community links. During a conversation with Karina Lindsey and Helen Backhouse from Richmond PRA in Nowra, they spoke about joining with us and bringing along the women that they were working with. The added support meant that our first 'Healing Journey' could begin.
