Join with local men Dingo Spender and Ben Purdie in an immersive sound ceremony. Weaving ancient wisdoms with vast soundscapes to gently open hearts. This is the prayer from Aria nominated and celebrated musician/composer Dingo Spender and ceremonialist Ben Purdie. Together they offer immersive sound ceremonies combining their teachings and initiations in Yidaki (Didjeridu from East Arnhem Land), ceremonial cacao, breathwork & yoga held in sacred space.
This collaboration brings together deep experiences working in the arts combined with knowledge from the profound spiritual traditions they are initiated in and working with. This combination of wisdom gained and permission granted results in a highly aligned, highly integrous and powerful healing opportunity for the participant. Dingo and Ben believe such sacred ceremonial space when combined with more modern sounds and visuals is just another beautiful way we can “walk each other home”.
The event combines traditional & ancient Peruvian ceremony serving cacao as the medicine along with Dingo’s extraordinary healing soundscapes and permission and blessing by Yolgnu songman and elder Larry Guruwiwi for Dino to use Yidaki utilising a ' heart blast ' rhythm pulse. Dingo participated in the harvesting of his Yidaki in Arnhem Land with Traditional Owners.
Event includes ceremonial cacao ( no animal products )
Please bring a comfortable yoga mat or low chair to sit and lie on the ground. We also invite you to bring eye-mask, warm blankets and pillows for your comfort and enjoyment.
