Numagi Dreaming Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/781895389831501
Director of Primal Wellness Solutions – Nature Therapy, Marc is a nature guide, mindfulness coach, NLP practitioner, sound healer, reiki practitioner, space-holder, social ecologist and musician.
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. His 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 - from a deeply calming of the nervous system right down to clinically proven reduction in cortisol, adrenaline levels and inflammation, a natural increase in ‘feel-good’ hormones like dopamine, the exchange of positive and negative ions, increased oxygenation and alkalinity of the blood, and better sleep – all of which create a glowing state of wellbeing. Getting a clear, direct, embodied experience of being in connection with nature, he says, is so healing, empowering and joyful. Through his modalities of nature immersion, mindfulness and sound baths, he sees his clients become more peaceful, positive, optimistic and inspired.

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.
