A weekend at the Northern Rivers

I should never leave home without camera… I have been in Lismore for the week end, what different life style, mentality, pace… I flew up to Ballina and stayed near Clunes in a small villa. The purpose of the trip was training another 24 Ethics teachers for Primary Ethics at the Southern Cross University.

Mission accomplished! As always, we had the most amazing people volunteering for this task, to teach Ethics to primary school children, giving their time and spirit to enable children to develop critical thinking skills, as well as embarking on their own personal journey in volunteering for this role.

Being thrown together with these people from all walks of life was – as always – a deeply enriching experience and I feel truly inspired by all the conversations we had in the breaks, as well by all the contributions to the course as such!

I will just have to go back, for a girls week end and enjoy the peace of that beautiful place!

And I have just about no photos, just a few I took with my phone. So no pictures of stray dogs walking the streets of Nimbin, all the beautiful vegetation, cane fields at the side of the road, sculptures of big female forms made from old car doors…
