Journeys exploring ritual practice and the nomadic household
They arrived with the ruins of civilisation on their backs, the bundlers, the
traveling through the four lands. Arriving here, between land and sea.
To form the nomdic household
where ruins become the sacred seeds of change.
Shaping between the palms of hands and the mouth of the earth
a deep listening
to the echoes
of the ancient song that vibrates within
and guide the path for the
new songs to be woven
"Yoruk was an experience in my life like no other I had previously encountered. It was a time of deep medicine, inner alchemical transformation, and a connection to ancient wisdom. The creative growth of inner self has already seeped into my artistic practice and has supported me in a truly difficult time in my personal life. I am so grateful for everything that took place there. My senses still recall all that surrounded me – the smell of incense and fire in the night air, the sweet taste of figs in the morning, the sounds of women chanting and laughing together, and the sight of eagles soaring above us as we reached the mountain top. I left feeling like I had not only witnessed a beautiful creative act unfold, but that I had been an artwork myself – arriving as a raw material, worked on and transformed by the land, the processes, the magic of that time." - Nomadic residency participant
