The world still has a problem with women. Back in 1588 two villages in unreformed Germany lost all but one of their womanfolk in witch trials, spearheaded by the Catholic church. In 2023, it sometimes feels the world has learned nothing.
The Soul Medicine Academy's headquarters are in Brisbane, Australia. The name given to this place by its Traditional Owners is Meanjin. This is the place we work, play, live, heal, and activate our soul work.
We acknowledge the Jagera and Turrbal People as the Traditional Owners of this land. We recognise that this land was never ceded and therefore we live on stolen land. We pay our respects to Elders, past and present, as the holders of the memories, the traditions, and the cultural and spiritual well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People across the land.
We acknowledge that before European colonisation of Meanjin, the land, the river, and its tributaries were the source and support of life in all its dimensions and we cannot do our soul work on this land without this recognition.
In the spirit of reconciliation, respect, and partnership, the Soul Medicine Academy will invest in learning and being guided by the wisdom of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. We support Treaty, Truth & Voice.
