Discover upcoming Event's in our community
Chanting and Drumming are an ancient/current tool for building community, for being truly with others, in song, in heartbeat, in harmony. Yet, the key of it, is that you don’t have to be a singer to chant, all you need is an open heart and a little courage… and a sense of humour!
Check out this .pdf of a long list of chants, over 70 of them, from a Goddess offering made in 2007. I don’t recognise a good chunk of them, but I reckon between us all we would recognise them, if you come along and share the love of sharing voice… for all the things we can’t do, this is a thing we can.
Come and join us in exploring our chanting capacity, as a community.
With Love, Guardian of the Gaia Temple.
the Gaia Temple Library hosts one of the largest collections of earth based spirituality and Goddess texts in Australia. Our book club takes theses texts and explores them deeper in a co-created and self directed capacity with interested folx.
Decolonizing solidarity: Dilemmas and Directions for Supporters of Indigenous Struggles’ by Clare Land
Why join this book club?
"It is an academically written book so being in a book club helped me stay motivated and get through the content. The discussion element was important as it meant I got so much more from the book to hear, feel and share with others. Our book club ended up bonded and closer after going through such a transformative experience together. "
- Jo, Book Club participant
What's the commitment?
Read 2 chapters per month and turn up for the discussion.
Each group of 6-8 people meet once a month for 6 months but each group is different and you may decide on more or less often.
There is an outline and solid resources for running the book club including chapter and/or pages to read for each session, a set of questions for discussion and group guidelines.
As a member of the Gaia Temple books borrowed through the Gaia Temple Library, brought into public libraries or can be purchased. There is also a digital version.
Please express interest be emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
After which point we will get back in touch to get an idea of which days and times will suit and send guidelines.
Depending on numbers we may set up a couple of book clubs and they will run on zoom.
