Jana Holland, Alison Hill and Auntie Karan Kent will be joining us to share their extensive personal and professional experiences, and ways we can interweave their learnings into our lives, including Guiding.

Connecting with Ourselves
On Being Our Best Selves – Putting People First
~ 10:20 AM ~

Jana will bring to us her unique perspective and practical tips on how we can re-invigorate ourselves to feel connected, happy and safe, so that we can be our best selves.

Having immersed herself in global leadership across 26 countries and taken a deep dive into the study of cultural and spiritual anthropology (the study of humankind), Jana feels deeply privileged to assist people from all walks of life in the pursuit of physical and emotional healing.

As a gifted and engaging communicator, we are extremely excited to have Jana present her insights, underpinned by the science behind how our bodies respond to the stressors and anxieties of life as we know it. She will share how we can take charge of these factors and discover a more relaxed and content way to live the life we seek.

Connecting with Nature
People Flourish when Nature Flourishes
~ 11:40 AM ~

It’s in our DNA! Each of us has had the refreshing and re-energising experience of getting out into the outdoors, if only for a short time. Many of us will have witnessed the positive impact that an outdoor program or longer experience in nature has on Guides, no matter our age.

The inter-dependency between natural ecosystems and human populations is now proven: when we spend just 20 minutes a day – or 2 hours a week – of regular, intentional, multi-sensorial connection with nature, our overall health is improved. (ref: The International Union for Conservation Nature).

Alison will share with us her work with the People and Parks Foundation which strives to bring together the environment and conservation and health promotion, and her tried and true five ways of wellbeing – for ourselves and those around us.

Connecting with our First Nations Thinking & Culture
~ 3:20 PM ~

Gift yourself some time to detach and learn about the Indigenous wisdom, culture and traditions of proud Bidjara woman Auntie Karan – a passionate, enthusiastic and energetic woman who shows us in a fun way how we can live in harmony with Mother Nature.
Auntie Karan will take us on an intuitive journey – a combination of earth mindfulness, physical movements (standing or sitting) and how we can sit in the stillness of nature.

She says: “I now share my Wayapa practice with Government, Health and Educational organisations, having a focus towards the health, early years and primary school sectors.”
