Dadirri is deep listening and learning. It is a sense of the spirituality experienced through quiet, still awareness. When we listen to Country, we are made whole again.
Meditation has so many advantages. Health, well-being, and mental processes improve with meditation and, over time, the benefits increase steadily.
Lee is a certified mindfulness & meditation teacher specialising in Cultural meditation that connects you to the Spirit of the Land as we breathe the breaths of our ancestors.
Meditation means transforming the mind and developing concentration through presence and self awareness.

l was so fortunate to be a participant in one of Lee’s online meditation workshops hosted by Healing the Past by Nurturing the Future. Immediately l was drawn in by the calming and welcoming space she had provided and found myself very relaxed. Her session was guided in such a gentle and positive way that led me into a place of deep connection. Her teachings are a gift that acknowledges a deeper appreciation of culture. Brilliant!We Al-li

In 2019 aged forty nine I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I found myself in a place of fear and despair.Knowing I had to go through six months of chemotherapy before surgery, I wanted and needed to work on a much deeper more spiritual level to heal physically and emotionally.With a little research and help from the universe I was so fortunate to have been introduced to Lee Couch .Lee supported and guided me throughout my healing journey and continues to do so today.Lee taught me how to connect to myself and to country. She held my hand as I travelled to some very dark places and to many beautiful ones as well and we worked on my healing through forgiveness and gratitude. Healing connects us back to ourselves, Lee taught me to be still, to calm my mind and this allowed me to find peace and connect with my spirit and the universe.Through these practises I grew strong and grounded and I could overcome whatever came my way.With each meditation Lee connected me to country and to the ancestors who also contributed to my healing. Thank you ancestors.I’m forever grateful to have Lee in my life. Thank you so much for the healing.
