Events

We want people to be happier. We want to teach people the tools to be happier in this very moment. We run a range of different events to bring like-minded people together to inspire long-term change.

If you have any ideas on events that we should be involved with, let us know. We are always looking for new and creative ways to bring a positive shift in society.

All profits go back to the Bob Brown Foundation to help protect the Tarkine! 

In April 2015, over 70 photographers, filmmakers, musicians and artists journeyed into the Tarkine to document and interpret its wild, scenic beauty as never before. From that weekend comes this stunning 55-minute documentary portrait of this threatened wilderness and the creative minds working to save it.

Curated by Tasmanian wilderness photographer and film maker, Dan Broun and the Bob Brown Foundation, Tarkine In Motion is a multi-platform project culminating in film, concerts and exhibitions of art created in the heart of the Tarkine, one of the last great wilderness areas on the planet.

To see the Tarkine is to want to save it. Produced by the Bob Brown Foundation with the support of Patagonia, this short film showcases the spectacular landscapes of Tarkine.

Interviewed in the film, Bob Brown observes that in the next handful of years the fate of Tarkine will be decided - protected for all time as a World Heritage Area, a treasure trove of Aboriginal heritage and spectacular wilderness, or dug up and hacked down for a few quick bucks.

Featuring breathtaking drone footage of the coastline, forests, rivers and mountains, this film challenges us all to visit the Tarkine and not be moved to want to save it.

We never just walk. We are always thinking about where we are going next and what we are going to say and this can make us feel tired, overwhelmed and stressed. If we can cultivate presence and non-reactivity in our daily activities and learn to cultivate joy from doing so then we are already a step ahead when it comes to finding our happiness in all areas of life.

BONDI BEACH SOFT SAND WALKING MEDITATION - SATURDAY JANUARY 21ST @ 8AM 

Come and join us at Bondi Beach (south end on the sand, near the rocks, at the bottom of the grass hill) and learn the art of walking meditation.  

We never just walk. We are always thinking about where we are going next and what we are going to say and this can make us feel tired, overwhelmed and stressed. If we can cultivate presence and non-reactivity in our daily activities and learn to cultivate joy from doing so then we are already a step ahead when it comes to finding our happiness in all areas of life. 

When we learn to be aware of our feet touching the sand, we become open to everything around us, to our environment and our friends. When we foster a little bit more awareness of our wandering minds we become less stuck in worry and fear and we bring more joy to the simple things. Something so simple like walking can bring so much happiness and can be a great tool to bring us back to the present moment.
