Empowering Women

to stand in their fire and embrace healing on their own terms.

Ancient Indigenous intuitive methods to reconnect to our innate feminine wisdom

Our Ethos

We Approach Wellbeing Holistically;

Considering wellbeing through emotional, physical, cultural, spiritual, earth connection, economic empowerment, and relationship aspects.

 

Strong empowered women, in all aspects of their lives, are pivotal in encouraging inner strength in their children, grandchildren And partners.

 

The Ethos of Warida Wholistic Wellness sees wellness through Indigenous Healing Practices approaches; Including:

 

– Our connection with each other, gudu-guduwa (coming together) and ngalimi yunggudya (we give to each other).

 

– Awareness and exploration of our inner world.

 

– Our connection with barna (Country).

 

Ngardi Guwanda (listening/thinking/feeling strongly/deeply). Listening with our whole being both within and outside of our bodies.

 

– Experiential and therapeutic relationship with horses and other animals in an ethical and honouring way.

 

– Our groundedness through an Indigenous spiritual perspective of warida (wedge-tailed eagle).

 

-An understanding of how economic empowerment can support healing in traditionally marginalised communities.

Warida

Our 7 Pillars Of Excellence

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), ngalimi yunggudya (we give to each other) and ngardi guwanda (listening/thinking/feeling strongly/deeply).

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. We also understand the importance of economic empowerment in the healing process.

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.

Warida Wholistic Wellness Encourages Each Of Us To Fully Embrace Who We Are, Stepping Into Our Power.

By all accounts we are a nation in crisis – the statistics are beyond alarming: 45% of Australians will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime; 6 Australian’s per day suicide with another 30 people attempting per day; and 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men experience domestic violence. Add to this that the world health organisation has listed burn out as a growing concern. Many people are tired of being looked at as broken, dysfunctional and something needing "fixing". More and more people are exploring empowering mental health and wellbeing services as far away from the medical model as possible. Decolonising mental health and wellbeing addresses this need.

One of the workshop attendees was wearing this cool t-shirt that I just had to share.

It’s those seemingly random moments where you come across those pure gems and tonight was no exception. In my walk back from today’s workshop, I spied a small interesting restaurant, Karan-an: Filipino Asian Boutique Restaurant. It was closed but I knew I wanted to eat there.

Even though I was quite tired, I went back there and walked in the door. There were two women sitting near the counter. One of the women gave me a big smile and wave, while the other woman stood up and offered me her seat!

What followed was the most amazing evening meeting, connecting and laughing with two incredible entrepreneurs, Mel from Karan-An and Lin from Love, Lin’s Collections.

The tiredness evaporated as we yarned about connection, listening and speaking from the heart, being held by Country, manifestion, joy, purpose and path, business and a million things in between. All while Mel kept bringing out more treats, dessert and jasmine tea. We finished the evening with hugs and joyful eyes and hearts.

Thank you ladies for an amazing evening. I didn’t think tonight I would be sharing a meal with you both. My heart is full (as is my belly 🤣).

Feeling the love Animal Instincts Australia - Toowoomba ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 🐴 🐶 ☺️  Love seeing the strides this woman is making in the world.

There is always something special when you get to physically catch up with a long term friend, sister, fellow horse archer, counselling / equine assisted psychotherapy colleague and fellow entrepreneur.

Travelling to Toowoomba for work gave me the opportunity to catch up for dinner with the amazing Hayley from Animal Instincts Australia - Toowoomba, who incidentally bred and trained our dog, Archie, who has supported many people in their therapy sessions.

My gosh, we talked and feasted for hours!

Treasured spending time with her, hearing about all her amazing entrepreneurial activities and the change she is bringing about in her community.

Biggest ❤️’s.
