About the Book

My book is meant to show the holistic intelligence of our traditional people. Surviving for over sixty thousand years meant the whole brain had to be utilized. The education I received left me stifled as my emotional intelligence was more in need of attention than my IQ, which was ordinary. I found the need to challenge that which was lacking in my schooling years and be passionate about change after revisiting education in the areas that I found interesting while learning as a mature-age student.

About the Author

My book covers my Aboriginal great grand-dads spiritual journey relating to the secret of his parents to his death at Glenside Mental Hospital in 1926. Investigating how Two Way Culture assimilation reacted on his physical, mental and spiritual health, drove me to work in community settings involving aged care, mental health and Families S.A. (a government organisation that homed Aboriginal children in care) These stories helped me understand the traumas that vulnerable people endured, making it my passion to integrate skills that I used personally to benefit my holistic health.
