Add to this that the world health organisation has listed burn out as a growing concern.

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) 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.'

Happy NAIDOC week!!

This year’s theme is get up, stand up, show up!

The NAIDOC website talks about this years theme:

“We have a proud history of getting up, standing up, and showing up.

From the frontier wars and our earliest resistance fighters to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities fighting for change today—we continue to show up.

Now is our time. We cannot afford to lose momentum for change.

We all must continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for systemic change and keep rallying around our mob, our Elders, our communities.

Whether it’s seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism—we must do it together.

It must be a genuine commitment by all of us to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms.

It’s also time to celebrate the many who have driven and led change in our communities over generations—they have been the heroes and champions of change, of equal rights and even basic human rights.

Getting Up, Standing Up, and Showing Up can take many forms.

We need to move beyond just acknowledgement, good intentions, empty words and promises, and hollow commitments. Enough is enough.

The relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non‑Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.

Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! with us to amplify our voices and narrow the gap between aspiration and reality, good intent and outcome.”

Super excited to have 4 Pony Club Association of South Australia Inc. members achieve their Level 1 Horse Archery Coach certification, and Level 2 theory.

Ground breaking for PCASA being the first Pony Club Association in Australia achieving their certificate, and at the oldest Pony Club in SA, Pegasus Pony Club.

Well done Ann, Julie, Sylvia and Monique.

A really good infographic on some of the challenges that people with lived experience of dissociative identity disorder may experience.

It’s not a disorder it’s a coping mechanism and symptoms of the toxic society we live in. Nothing wrong with the people. It’s the systems snd structures that’s wrong.

Great pic Bianca. Very representative.

Fantastic infographic. Thanks for sharing

Our hearts are heavy at the passing of the old gentleman of our Warida family, Cannon (Valanche Bvlgari). Born on 12 January 2009, living with thyroid cancer for the past two years, he left us physically at 3pm this afternoon.

Forever in our hearts, keeping watch, chasing rabbits, drinking cuppas and climbing the rock. He last visited the rock on Monday. Thank you to everyone who held him in their hearts with us.

So sorry for your loss Bianca. He was such a beautiful old fella. Kind gentle spirit. He and it have spent a fair bit of time together at the van having a pat while we wait. Saffron loved him too and deliberately chose her sessions so Cannon could come too. Our furbabies have special place in our hearts forever and I like to think his spirit will always be nearby with his family

So sorry for your loss. It looks like you gave him an awesome life! Thinking of you during this difficult time 🌿🌻

Big hugs for you and your family. He looked like a beautiful boy, so hard to lose such a precious member of the family xxx

So sorry for your loss. He was just beautiful and he will live on always in the precious memories we have of him 💗

Oh no! 💔😢😓 Such a gorgeous boy. He was G’s favourite and she would ask to come out to S’s sessions with us just so she could sit with him during that time. 💜 Sending hugs. Xx

Sorry for your loss. I’ve lost 2 oldies in the past year, and my remaining old dog now has a brain tumour and has gone blind. Treasure your memories. Xx

Awhhh Sis heartfelt condolences to you and your family. His Angel wings will allow him to fly pain free. We just lost our 12 year old Greyhound recently so My heart is sending you healing energy.

Beautiful pics of a life well lived and loved by many now with broken hearts at the emptiness that are fur babes leave with us. Sending love to you and your family Bianca 🌈 🐕

Biggest of hugz. It's tough losing our fur babies ❤️❤️

Thinking of you all. Such a gorgeous boy. Rest in peace Canon

Our thoughts are with you guys! Loved Cannon!

Oh Hun so sorry for you loss, he was a beautiful old dog xo

Oh no. I only met him once but he was very sweet. Sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss, he looks like the best of dogs. Good hunting Cannon.

So sad to read this, I'm glad I got to meet him once. Sending love and prayers x

Sending love to you and your family from Dani and myself

I'm very sorry Bianca. They leave a big space. He looks like such a sweet man. 💔

Sending loads of ❤️ to you all beautiful angel, I'm certain your boy would have lived his best life with you there 😘

I'm so sorry Bianca, he was a lovely old man ❤

Awww it's such a massive loss when they leave us. The emptiness just can't be filled 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙇🏽‍♀️

Sending love Sis ♥️

Sending love 🌸❤️
