At the Good Earth Festival Hughes ACT in July I presented about the writing of Elroy’s story, how it was for me to gain acceptance in his community and the ceremonies I attended with him. Many new Canberra readers joined the mailing list J and many who had already read the book came along to say Hallo J
At the Canberra Jung Society also in July, I was invited to give a lecture “Synchronicity – a Personal Experience” where I was able to share synchronicities in how Elroy and I met and how synchronicities are viewed in Navajo and Aboriginal cultures. Attendees shared their own experiences of synchronicity and how they make sense of them.
On the Back to Earth Program 2XX FM Canberra more of The Story Behind The Story was shared. You can listen on www.theoceansofenergy.com
Trove, James Bennett Library Service and the Australian Library Services all now host the book – very exciting!. This means a synopsis and availability of the book is catalogued and accessible to all libraries in Australia and to researchers worldwide.
