Crossroads of the Custodians
This 5HR Workshop on the Gold Coast calls to those who walk the uncommon paths and to those leading the way in their families, communities and regions.
THE CONTEXT & THE INVITATION
We are living through the greatest collective initiation of our time; a pivotal multi-decade chapter in the human story that will shape the world future generations are born into.
In the undercurrents of this collective initation there is a great stirring, a renaissance, a remembering…and a profound deepening.
The unique medicine seeded into each of us as we came into this world is slowly (sometimes quickly) finding its way to the surface.
In the shake, uncertainty and greater tensions that characterise this mytho-poetic moment we are slowly remembering all that we have always been, who we really are and what it truly means to be a human being.
Collectively, we are in the belly of the beast, and it is here in the unknown that the greatest treasures and the sleeping magics emerge and reveal themselves.
Part of this emergence is a rising of essential wisdoms that have been lost to the western world through the great cycles of time and the rise and fall of countless empires, civilisations and traditional cultures.
These wisdoms are the fundamental roots of embodied humanity…and after centuries sleeping in our cells, they are beginning to emerge again now within the collective consciousness and from within our DNA.
An embodied relationship with these wisdoms is the essential path of all leaders, figures of influence, and indeed all human beings.
This maturing and deepening will continue to ripple through the industries we know, through the communities we know, through the way of life we know, through how we engage with each other, through how we meet life, how we meet each other and how we move in the world.
It truly is an extraordinary and catalysing time to be alive.
As part of this moment in our shared journeyed I would like to invite you to join me (Matthew Liam Gardner) for 5 hours at a meaningful and catalysing crossroads of deep humanity, embodied remembering and living myth.
At the core of this workshop is a remembering and celebration of your unique roles within our human family and a gentle exploration of your personal frontier as you step deeper into these roles.
This workshop has been called as a space of embodied remembering for those who walk the uncommon paths.
Over 5 hours the workshop will ebb and flow organically and there will be a range of simple but meaningful solo, partner and group enrichment practices and activities...as well as a number of short transmission from Matthew.
Those that hear the call and arrive into space with us will experience a gentle mix of belly rememberings, deep presence and meaningful exchange.
While the space is not specifically a ceremonial one, we will meet our time together with a deep presence, care, grounded reverence, and gentleness that will feel like food for your ancient soul.
This is the kind of workshop that is generally soothing for the nervous system while at the same time touching the tender, unfolding edges of your being.
The Theoretical Base…
For the most part, this workshop lives beyond the conceptual mind, in the realms of the shamanic belly and living myth.
Having said that…
For those that like to know the theoretical specifics of what they are getting themselves into…
Most of the practices used in this workshop touch what you could call the alchemy of relational mythos.

Matthew Liam Gardner returned to Australia last September after 3 years in the United Kingdom learning from and journeying with the Celtic Chiefs, Regional Elders, Welsh Witches and Irish Mystics. In Early April 2023 he leaves Australian shores again to continue his journey in Europe.
Matthew continues to walk the path of deep listening and raw humanity. In these one day workshops he utilises a mixture of shamanic philosophy, intuitive sensory belly transmissions, initiatory lessons, space for all voices, and a potent kind of ‘group field’ alchemy.
Matthew is an experienced space holder, teacher and journey guide who has worked intimately with thousands in Australia, The United Kingdom, Europe and The United States over the last 18 years. His life is devoted to this work and he would be honoured to share space with you.
