Blessings and support for us and the Quilt from Rachel Shields and Aunty Carolyn Briggs during a regular Goddess Within support meeting. It was a joy to receive their wisdom and sharing. (Rachel Shields is a travelling story teller, singer and songwriter. She fuses her indigenous culture and spirituality in her sharing.)
(Aunty Carolyn is a Boonwurrung elder from Victoria and keeper of the history and genealogies of her people. She was also awarded NAIDOC Female Elder of the Year 2011)
