For those readers living local to the Mornington Peninsula, Aboriginal Elder Uncle Max Harrison is coming to Hummingbird Eco Retreat on the weekend of May 5th and 6th to facilitate a cleansing and reconciling with the land. My husband Pete worked with Uncle Max recording his story and photographing him on country to create this book.
Uncle Max is an Elder of the Yuin Nation on the far south coast of NSW. He was born by a sacred water hole and later chosen from his tribe to be taught by 5 Masters law/lore and healing, this teaching was continuous for 17 years. After seeing the marginalisation of his people and lack of acceptance of traditional teachings, he began what has become his life's work providing a way for others to understand Aboriginal culture. He encourages all people to embrace their spiritual growth while making grass roots changes in their immediate world. He is an engaging and heartfelt speaker within him is a wealth of experience, wisdom and authenticity.
Uncle Max has been consulted by governments on land rights issues and shared the podium at major events with spiritual leaders from around the world including the Dalai Lama. The weekend at Hummingbird Eco Retreat with Uncle Max has the blessing of Boonwurrung Elder Aunty Caroline Briggs.
