Across the Creek
land energy experiences in the home paddock
Across the Creek explores the relationship with the spirit of place through the canvas of Helens’ home property NE of Warren in Central West New South Wales.
This story walks between worlds. Between the practical, material daily life on a farm, and the subtle spiritual life of a place called Booroola. It walks between the white capitalist paradigm and the ancient Aboriginal way. It’s a link between worlds, between the sacred and the profane and it brings greater awareness of the relationship between the Earth and Us.
“Across the Creek is a work of spirit. Totally enchanting and inspiring. Helen has managed an extraordinary communication between the worlds – past and present, and through her exquisite art and words communicates with the reader transporting them to a place of contemplation and reverence”.
Ann Harrison, psychotherapist and meditation teacher.
“A read that captures and combines culture, vision, humanity and family whilst highlighting the importance of one’s mind”.
Larry Trudgett, local Wiradjuri man.
This book is a must for people working with land. It will change our relationship with where we are forever.

Between 10am – 12noon we will venture outside to connect with the spirit of place by the river in Wagga.
Experiential, practical and theoretical
We will ‘go inside’ using the third eye, focused breathing, recognising presence and centered and peripheral awareness.
When we are outside, we will look for the spirit of a tree, for energy wells, sacred weaves, earth meridians, and imprints from past inhabitants.
This is an introductory workshop.
Helen has studied consciousness for more than 20 years. She will share anecdotes from her training and her personal experiences, and she will help us learn by doing it with you.
It combines principles of sourcing, reflection, holism, experiential learning and awareness.
Helen often says, its the most fun you can have.
