Cockatoo Dreaming NAIDOC Community Gathering July 2nd, 2023 @11am
Girrahween Park, Wolli Creek Regional Park Earlwood
"I acknowledge all first Peoples of the beautiful lands on which we live and celebrate the enduring knowledge and connection to country. I honour the wisdom of and pay respect to elders past and present"
It is time to come together as a collective community and celebrate NAIDOC week 2023 "For our Elders"
Everyone is welcome!
It is my honor to be your guide on Bidjigal Country in our first ever all-inclusive outdoor Cockatoo Dreaming community gathering. The Wolli Creek Regional Park is in my neighborhood and holds an Ancient Magic and Mystery. We will gather together to walk on country, listen, learn and share as my people have done for many thousands of years.
We will begin the day with an Acknowledgement of Country and traditional welcome. I will share with you some of the knowledge and wisdom that has been taught to me, handed down to me by my Elders. I can only ever share with you the learnings I have received on my path, from my journey and from my family and kin. We will take a walk-in nature and allow country to speak with us. We will dance and connect and unite.
I am called to encourage and guide others to become empowered to connect with themselves, their family, their ancestors and their community to create a life they love living.
"Cockatoo Dreaming is a healing, hosting, speaking, storytelling, life coaching and mentor business. Led by Lynda Millin Osborne a proud Bundjalung Woman. Working intuitively using spoken word, tender and humorous stories, movement, music and interaction she facilitates a connection to self and others called to come and sit collectively. "

Cockatoo Dreaming is such an oasis.
I leave feeling nourished, loved, understood & seen.
Thank you. Your vision & the work you have done to realize it has created something very precious & beautiful."
Bowing in gratitude to you for creating such a safe place for phenomenal healing to occur in us all.
For me there is a deep seated knot of fear around stepping in to my power and leaving the past behind-
a knot that simply unraveled and released last Sunday.
It’s given my spirit so much ease and room to breathe and create the new so I can’t thank you enough as
I’d been holding those tears and fears in for way too long ....st
Not any more!
