Pre-Conference Programme Option 1: Goothala Doyle (optional)

Goothala Doyle provides Aboriginal cultural practices and teachings in a holistic and authentic way. His songlines begin at the mouth of the Brisbane River being the head of the snake with its forked tongue going out to the two islands, Moreton and Stradbroke. His connections continue from the Bunyas to Eidesvale in Wakka Wakka Country including Iman from Theodore Creek to Carnarvon.

Goothala works with people from all nations and cultural backgrounds to heal the Spirit of the country by allowing people to recreate themselves. Goothala focuses on decolonisation and de-labelling of self to find your true self.
