Why we are Offering this Immersive Journey Now
Many of you will have been personally affected by the last few years of uncertainty and disconnection, with the crumbling away of old familiar ways - many of which have not served humanity. You are dreaming of a new reality for yourself and collectively for humanity, and the communities you live in and contribute to. You may be looking to find like-hearted and like-minded people to grow and belong with. Perhaps you are feeling pulled toward, or have already activated a call to leadership.
This expo journey has been carefully crafted to share the ancient and conscious wisdoms of the past ages and is appropriate for our modern times. The word 'expo' is short for 'exposition' and has Latin roots meaning putting something out in the open. This is a Unique Opportunity to open up to new ideas and possibilities, expand and grow your resourcefulness, moving from chaos to harmony, and be guided to find your own personal Map of growth to help navigate a changing world.
Do You Feel The Call to Join the Dreaming and CoCreation of our New Earth and Ways?
You have been aware of an uncertainty and unsafety in the world and are looking at centering yourself and expanding your energy despite the continued external chaos.
Are you open to listening to and embodying Ancient Wisdom and to fully activate your innate gifts to more consciously and confidently walk in new ways with those around you??
At times you feel a sense of disconnection or looking to find other like minded people to grow and belong with. You find yourself asking:
What can we do collectively, differently and more of to accelerate the transition of the world and our lives into living a life of Peace, Harmony, and Unity?
You identify as a Universal Light Weaver, Visionary and Conscious Walker bringing forward the reality of the New Earth we are all dreaming into existence.
Are you ready to create a palpable alignment to the infinite power through your sacred nature?
If one or more of these Quests and/or Questions resonates, then this will be an exceptional opportunity to unite with others of like-heart and mind to join The VisionKeepers for a weekend of teachings to support you through this transition so you feel more confident to contribute to and influence the Journey of New Earth Dreaming, New Way Walking.
During this weekend Expo Journey, you will:
Be received in a supportive, energetic space to align yourself to a New Way of Walking on the Earth.
Be placing your energetic footprint to create a harmonious world for our future generations.
Be receiving key tools to increase your resiliency and move through any challenges you are being presented with now.
Understand more how to be a heart-centred human being that cares for yourself, others and the Earth.
Have an opportunity to explore and define your contribution and place in the New Earth.
Find yourself amongst a larger tribe to belong with in the world and be supported with more joy, flow, resiliency and emotional freedom.
Who is Guiding The Journey?
This is a curated transformative and expansive Journey facilitated by a diverse team of experienced and inspiring Health and Wellbeing Practitioners, Visionaries and Community Leaders who come from varied backgrounds and different areas of expertise. Collectively known as The VisionKeepers.
The VisionKeepers are in their seventh year since forming in 2016, meeting regularly to reflect on their personal and professional journeys. Their collective vision is to build authentic relationships where they spend time nurturing each other into their full potential. They do this through loving connection, deep sharing and listening, co-creation, and collective visioning of a vibrant, healthy earth, and healing and transformation for humanity and the communities they serve.
The VisionKeepers look forward to individually and collectively offering a wide variety of creative and inspiring presentations this weekend.
We are the hopes and dreams of our Ancestors,
and we are walking a New Way into the future.
We are creating a New Earth NOW
by embodying our place between the Earth and the Cosmos,
dancing between our Sovereignty and Personal Evolution
and our place in Service as Light Weavers and Leaders in Community.
We are Building and CoCreating from Love.
We are Walking Each Other Home
The Sequence of the Journey and Modalities on Offer
This Expo Journey is a virtual experience to be held over two days where you can connect from the comfort of your own home and from anywhere in the world.
The Journey invites you to claim the New Earth that you want to live in and are committed to co-create through your intentions, energies and actions.
You will be guided through a series of offerings that have been carefully designed by gifted facilitators to be inclusive and honouring on many levels, being interactive, intellectually stimulating, practical and experiential. Each presentation dovetails into the next to create a deep and integrated discovery of what it takes to Walk a New Way in this fast-changing world.
Your facilitators will take you on a journey which is divided into four distinct quadrants/themes:
The 1st quadrant being the North Node will support you to connect to the ancestors and spirit to open yourself up to the invisible and lineages that have walked before you. You will connect to the sacredness of your own body and Mother Earth as a living, sentient being.
This will set up a foundation that will take you into the South Node where you will explore your visioning and dreaming of your own life and how you envisage and see the New Earth looking in the future.
With the clarity of your visions and inspiration you have received we move into the West Node to restore some of the sacred ancient principles of living life ie. reciprocity, honouring the elements and learning the tools necessary to embody and integrate the New Earth New Way Walking into your own life.
The 4th and final quadrant is the East Node which is all about gratitude, celebration, responsibility and commitment moving forward. How do you keep yourself accountable and in alignment with the new choices, behaviours and actions to ground in the New Earth New Way Walking into life.
We will be using a variety of different modalities to support you over the 2 days including:
Heart-based sacred ceremonies
Connection to Country the Ancestors
Sound for healing and balancing
Various meditation techniques
Visioning and tuning into new realities
Energy medicine with the natural elements and crystals.
Family constellation work
Body based integration
Seeing yourself walking through the hero’s journey within your own life
Sacred dance and movement
Tree of life and the sacred elements
Heart based communication and neuroscience
Self responsibility and commitment.
This offering is a gift from us to you so no financial exchange is required to have access to the Expo Journey going live during this weekend. Sharing is caring, please help us help others by sharing this offering with your friends, communities and loved ones. Your contribution and support will amplify this gift to the greater collective.
We are very excited to connect with you and to be on this journey together. You are required to register to participate on Zoom and be part of the journey as you will need guidance and information as to how this will all unfold. Please book early to ensure your place.
Are you someone who recognises that we are in the
midst of an epic Transformative Shift that is

Shari is a member of the VisionKeeper community. Shari recognises that the quality of the life we live together is in the quality of our words, and how we communicate with ourselves and with others.
That our relationships, and level of trust, are enriched or eroded through what we say, and how we say it. Creating unity or division.
She recognises that we communicate primarily through energy… In fact, this is our first language. And so there is power, including power to influence, when we speak from core authenticity, rather than our thoughts and judgements or
manipulation to get the outcome we think we want.
Similarly, our ability to create the future we dream of on this planet is about being in
alignment with what really matters to us, the qualities of Life, not the outcome. The
outcome comes from our inner alignment.
Shari shares the missing piece, of how to listen beyond the words of what someone is saying to instead, listen from a deeper place, and experience, the true essence of “connection”.
She runs programs which support people to stand in their natural leadership, and speak
from their true power.
She lives near the beach on the Sunshine Coast, and has 2 grown sons who light up her life and is nourished by deep enriching relationships.

Having spent decades learning from and supporting First Nations peoples, Marc is passionate about connecting to Country, reconciliation, community building, mindfulness in nature and earth medicine. He is determined to contribute to a more sustainable, compassionate and connected world where people and nature thrive together.
Marc offers guided mindfulness walks in nature and tailors them according to the desires of the client. His walks are crafted around facilitating a personal experience of deep living connection with nature, as participants wanders in a childlike state through the bush. Walks might also include earthing meditations, bush tucker knowledge, plant and animal communication, survival skills or a didgeridoo sound bath.
Marc's primary aim is to inspire and support people to be more connected with, appreciative of and thus protective of – nature. He believes this personal relationship is key to each of us becoming Earth’s wise and benevolent stewards.
Marc says the psychological and physical benefits of spending time in nature are wide ranging. Getting a clear, direct, embodied experience of being in connection with nature, he says, is so healing, empowering and joyful.
Marc feels it is a privilege to witness people evolving and deepening their interconnectedness with life and nature as he holds space for them. Through his modalities of nature immersion, mindfulness and sound baths, he sees his clients become more peaceful, positive, optimistic and inspired.

Symbols of Influence
A number of symbols have influenced this unfolding of this offering, including the New Way Walking Mandala logo designed by VisionKeepers Yia Alias and Boorroo Parsons, the Tree of Life, the Merkabah, the Hero's Journey and the Chakra Map of Consciousness.
New Way Walking Mandala
The order of the Journey we are taking together over the weekend has come from deep introspection of all the symbols that have influenced the conceptualisation and co-creation of this Expo project.
VisionKeepers and Facilitators of the Expo Journey, Ceremonial Women Yia Alias and Boorroo Spirit Medicine Woman, sat together on the land, on Country, for days together contemplating the new ways we are being called to walk at these challenging and changing times, times, turning to the ancient, ceremonial teachings will continue to sustain us. Together, they created a narrative reflecting the New Way walking through a creative Mandala. This image has been juxtaposed upon other symbols of influence the began the enquiry and and eventually become our primary map and logo for the Expo Journey. Gratitude to Sophie Spiers, film maker an mandala co-creator.
Yia describes the Mandala Map:
Sitting at the centre of the mandala is our Sacred Earth held within an eye.
The eye represents our collective personal responsibility to hold the care of the Earth and humanity as our central focus.
The feet anchor in the New Way Walking. It is a conscious Path which acknowledges moving into the future with a mindful presence.
The seven circles surrounding the earth speaks to the seven generations behind us and the seven generations yet to come.
They are in the colours of the rainbow and can be used as a healing /teaching tool to integrate the energetics of the chakras to bring ones true essence into being so that this new walk can activate.
There are 4 larger gold circles connected with the gold lines framing the the Eye. They represent the disciplines needed to ground oneself on this path of Walking the Walk. They can be seen as developing relationship to Self, this includes being personally responsible for ones emotional life and care of the body. Relationship to Others and the mindful presence that needs constant attention to move interpersonal dynamics into a better relationship. Our relationship to the Sacred Elements of Life, respect for Water Fire Air and Earth, so that we can be the stewards of the earth that our beautiful Earth needs. And the last gold circle is for our Service. Each one of us has gifts to bring into the world that act as our contribution of service for our collective vision to manifest.
This Mandala Prayer Map is activated by calling in the four directions. Respectful gratitude to Boorroo Spirit Medicine Woman for this activation. This activation follows a Path of North South West and East and brings the Mandala to Life by calling in the energetics of each direction.
The North calls on the Ancestors
The South is the place where the Dreams come through.
The West calls on the blessing of the Wisdom Keepers our teachers.
The East is the place where everything comes through, the place where we take responsibility of what we allow into Mind Body Spirit for our New Way Walking path.
It is a Prayer, it is a Map, it is a Ceremony. It focuses our attention for the Earth and seven generations into the future. Each action, each thought, each step we take is creating the future. This mandala prayer encourages us to be conscious of our imprint and connects us to our ancestors. It offers an inspirational map/guidance tool to be more fully conscious of our presence in the continuum of life and responsibility to honour it.
The Many and Valuable Gifts of this Offering.
There is so much more information readily available in our current times, and technology has allowed it to be easily shared and to reach wide audiences.
Many Expo’s and summits that are being offered these days are mainly for sharing of information on a particular topic. There are numerous speakers who talk from their perspective and you as the participant follow along and absorb as much as you can along the way. The proliferation of information is amazing and yet sometimes it can be overwhelming and contribute to information overload. We can know a lot but still not know HOW to change, implement new ideas or land and integrate new behaviours in our bodies.
In contrast, this finely Orchestrated and Creative Journey builds each segment deliberately together. The diversity of perspectives and natural rhythms that unfold are coming from a place of 'Didhirri' (deep listening), Loving Connection, Unity and Reciprocity. This is part of the New Way Walking.
This Expo Journey is different to other offerings in that you will be not only Learning, you will have time to Dive Deep into and Embody the Medicines that arise from the teachings. You will be energetically, physically, emotionally, and intellectually supported by highly experienced facilitators and presenters, each experts in their field, offering well trialled creative and experiential processes.
Transforming during and beyond the gathering, you will be more confidently and spontaneously In Flow with the Natural Rhythms of the Earth and Cosmos. Not only feeling supported in This World, you will embody the wisdom and love gifted to you by Beings of Light in All Worlds to assist you to Become Who You are Truly Meant to Be and to Dream and Lead the Way, on individual and collective levels.
Finally, a tremendous Gift of this Journey over the weekend, this event will be held in Australia and thus will honour the Indigenous Wisdom, Ceremonies and Customs of the lands we, as facilitators, are on. For those who are from overseas, we welcome the opportunity for you to engage with an Ancient Culture relevant to and valued by you, permeating Timeless Energies supporting you during your transformation on this Journey of New Earth Dreaming ~ New Way Walking.
