The organiser of Byron’s inaugural Fields of Healing community event says it was a huge success that has inspired others to set up similar events around the world.
Around 1,000 people took part in the event, which took place at North Byron Parklands on Saturday and Sunday.
Organiser Adam Collett described the welcome and elders’ panel on Saturday ‘extraordinary’.
It was attended by tribal elders from around the globe, including hereditary Dakota chief, Phil Lane Jnr.
‘To have the ancient story of this country shared with the ancient stories from lands all over the world brought a deep sense of honour and respect,’ Adam said.
‘People were deeply moved and touched from witnessing the knowledge that was shared,’ he added.
Adam told Echonetdaily ‘many people have asked when the next event will be and we would love to do one at North Byron Parklands again next year’.
