Guunumba with Auntie Bea Ballangarry


Auntie Bea  wrote:
The theme for this writing retreat is Guunumba which means “Bring to Life” Therefore you will be encouraged to recognise the legend in what you see and be able to bring it to life from your perspective. Trust your process … it is important. Be comfortable, be happy and enjoy.

It was a wonderful weekend, three days with Auntie Bea, Lee, Eden and Joan. So much laughter and so much work. And North Farm Bellingen the perfect venue with Gai and Jen.
