Dadirri – Ancient Mindfulness Tradition
- Dadirri is inner deep listening and quiet still awareness. Dadirri recognizes the deep spring that is inside of us. While Dadirri is a word that belongs to the language of the Ngan’gikurunggur peoples of the Daly River in the Northern Territiry, the activity of Dadirri has its equivalence in many other Indigenous groups in Australia.
Meditation: Ganbu Marrambik
This meditation is based on Aboriginal way of knowing and being, a spiritual connection to the land and relating to Mother Earth through narrative meditation, storytelling, and didgeridoo playing
DADIRRI & WAYAPA WUURRK
Thornbury Primary School winner of the Victorian Excellence Award for Outstanding Koorie Education. Pictured is the Leadership Team in Koorie Education; Aunty Terri Lee-Fitzpatric: Culture & Language, Principle: Leon Bell & Lee Couch: Dadirri & Wayapa Educator.
Dadirri was founded by Aunty Miriam Rose Ungunmerr Baumann -NT as an Ancient Mindfulness tradition. The understanding of Dadirri is deep listening to earth, self and one another, which provides a basis process for a mindful reflection practice.
Wayapa Wuurrk was founded by Uncle Jamie Marloo Thomas and Sara Jones, Wayapa® is based on lndigenous knowledge & concepts and guides you to connect to Country. Wayapa Wuurrk® translates to Connect to Country in the languages of the Maara and Gunnai Peoples.
Having an energetic connection to the earth is what has sustained Aboriginal people to be the world’s oldest, continuous living culture – for over 80,000 years!
Today, for most of us, we have become disconnected from the land, from our tribe, from our food and from our spirit. Through Earth Mindfulness, deep breathing and narrative meditation and movement, Wayapa® provide a sense of belonging to the earth while creating holistic wellbeing.
What people say
Lee Couch brought genuine compassion and warmth to the women of Kirrip Aboriginal Corporation, as facilitator of her deadly program Connection to Country Healing Journey.
Lee is one of the kindest, most gentle souls I have had the pleasure of spending time with. Her commitment to the women in our group, and her empathy for what we as Aboriginal women live with, and need, in order to heal from intergenerational trauma, ensured the sessions were heartfelt and designed to give us the tools we needed to move forward and thrive. I cannot thank her enough for what she has brought to our community, and eagerly look forward to ongoing work with Lee as she continues to share her love and knowledge with us.
Dadirri has been enthusiastically embraced by all of Thornbury Primary’s students, teachers and community. The practice features Aboriginal language, shares Aboriginal culture and supports environmental and sustainability learning as well as promoting health and well being.
Lee is a wonderful Earth Educator using her incredible ability to provide a diverse range of educational tools and understanding of childhood development to allow our children to explore a Connection to Country. Lee is warm and empathetic in her teaching style as well as holding a great professional standard within the school community.
Our teachers have said:
“The Connection to Earth and Country is fantastic for grounding the children and allowing them to experience Aboriginal culture. It provides a calm focus for the day”.
“It has opened my eyes to what I can do in my classroom. I have been incorporating the tools in my lessons”
Thanks so much Lee!
