Quotes from previous participants:
“Useful practical info presented in interesting and experiential ways”
"I learned more than I’d ever learned in formal education or life alongside Indigenous people in Australia. If you want to take steps toward understanding our Indigenous brothers and sisters, I couldn’t recommend this course more as a comprehensive introduction to effective communication and the means to true unity."
“If I was ever tempted to think I could just 'feel my way' through cross-cultural interactions with Aboriginal Australians, 'Living in Two Worlds' helpfully dispelled that illusion. The course opened my eyes to the profound differences between Western and Aboriginal worldviews and gave me an invaluable toolkit for starting to engage in that space.”
