We believe that healed, empowered individuals and families are the basis of healthy community change. Within a room isn’t the only way to heal. We move outside of 4 walls, honouring Country and embracing the ethos of Gudu-Guduwa (coming together) through Ngardi Guwanda (deep listening), relationship and connection.

show what underpins everything that we do – our ethos for being.

Integrity

We are honest, open and ethical. This is the cornerstone of who we are.

Passion

We are passionate about everything we do, including mentoring other businesses and sharing our knowledge.

Culturally Safe, Sensitive and Reciprocal

Indigenous cultural safety, competency and the importance of connection to Country underpins everything we do. We live “gudu-guduwa” (coming together) and ngalimi yunggudya (we give to each other).

Ongoing Learning

We are avid learners and invest time and resources to keep up to date with new services, techniques and research to better service our communities.

Empowerment

We walk alongside our clients, helping them connect with their inner fire and Country as part of their healing process.  We believe experiences are not something to be “fixed” but embraced.

Global Citizenship

We embrace differences but we also believe that we have a lot to give as an Indigenous social enterprise. 

Challenging

We believe in pushing boundaries and having the courage to tackle any challenges.

Testimonials

kind words from our clients

We haven’t ever experienced anything like what you’ve worked to intentionally create for the therapeutic space. It is just that actually …. space …. safe space.... our body hasn’t ever experienced being in a space where it’s so supported to be calm and connected to deep energies and then to share this with you …. another person. Totally new experience for us all ….It actually helps us trust when there is no pressure from the therapist or agenda or assessment of everything we say into their framework of understanding that they then put onto us to define who we are and what our dysfunction is that requires fixing. There’s never been safe space in relationship for us to explore who we might be …. you hold space in such a large way including the earth and elements and nature and the animal beings help because they haven’t ever been so disconnected from it all …. they have so much to show us. Our brain can’t learn to be less fearful if we aren’t actually having better relationships and environments and experiences. Yet no therapy has ever considered this … then our ‘failure’ to think ourselves ‘better’ got us rejected and shamed by the very people who were supposed to be helping us.

“The online course offered by Bianca Stawiarski from Warida wholistic wellness made me completely change the way I think about myself. Despite not looking back (because it’s a can of worms and I didn’t want to go there) but looking forward, I have learned to value, like and love myself. This has lifted my self-esteem, which has resulted in a more confident and assertive me … and I like it! I found Bianca professional yet approachable. Personally, I am more confident, content and aware of my needs and how they fit in with other people in my life. I’m happier to say no in a constructive manner, happier to do things for myself and find a balance so I continue to help others without jeopardising my needs.'

Exploring what we gain or lose by invalidating our emotions and pretending everything is ok.

What are your thoughts?

So true. When we deny emotions we begin to shut them down. The worst thing is it's not pick and mix. You shut then all down - including joy, happiness, contentment, all the good ones 😨

Oh that topic is great Bianca Stawiarski and always a difficult one. As a mum of a child who is a csa survivor of institutional abuse I watch her ‘mask up’ every day to interact with people. I am the same - I put a mask on and ‘pretend’ so I can get through the day - I am only myself at home. It’s a tough gig. ❤️

I’m pretty sure I’ve lost a good portion of my mind trying to be a person that fits in and is ok in appearance It’s taken me a very long time to even scratch the surface of what it is to be my real self I think mainly because I’ve filled different roles over the years that are each a costume in themselves: wife mother mother to infants vs toddlers vs tweens vs teenager sister aunt employee friend best friend old friend faring friend I could go on

How true, time to reflect. Love your work Sis.

I’m a Brit so we always reply with ‘I’m good, how about you’ regardless of how good we are! But your words make me wonder where the line is between ‘good’ and ‘not ok’. As you say, all emotions are valid and we all have up and downs. I don’t feel ‘good’ all the time but maybe it’s just an up and down day. How down or how frequently down is it before I’m not ok? Different for everyone obviously but it’s one I need to ponder.

Great topic 👌 What stands in the way of me being my authentic self? Me. Even though there are, and have been, many, many external situations in my life that are really painful and challenging, the only source of my authentic, empowered response to them ~ is me. Which sometimes feels really overwhelming. And sometimes feels really empowering. Thanks for a chance to remind myself 🙏

Sending love ❤️

Pretending things are ok is sometimes all that’s left. 😕

Love you 💖

Thanks Bianca 💓

Thank you 😊

My gosh, this year I am beyond humbled and again a little teary. Thank you to the amazing woman (you know who you are) that nominated me for the Beam Magazine Australia Awards for Women to Watch describing me as follows:

"Bianca is a First Nations woman who runs multiple businesses and still finds time to mentor others. She is kind, thoughtful of others and is always looking to give back. I believe she deserves the opportunity for her to be spotlighted and all that she has achieved (and is still achieving) may be put forward so that the rest of society can see how important what she does is."

Your thoughts are so beautiful and generous. I give back because I can AND because I want to support others to succeed.

Thank you,

Luv,

Bianca xx

Good morning beautiful sissi from a very wet morning here on gorgeous Gumbaynggirr Country.

A frosty good morning from Peramangk land

Sunshine just coming up here on Noongar Wajuk country... enjoying a warm spiced dirty-chai latte on this chilli morning 🌄

On Kaurna Country, my wirangu girl started the day snuggling in my bed.

I miss your face, smile and laugh on Thursday mornings xx

Morning from Kaurna Country. It was frosty and then foggy this morning, further up the hill. I went for a walk and now I'm writing a blog.
