".... Dadirri. It is inner, deep listening and quiet, still awareness. Dadirri recognizes the deep spring that is inside us. We call on it and it calls to us … When I experience dadirri, I am made whole again. I can sit on the riverbank or walk through the trees; even if someone close to me has passed away, I can find my peace in this silent awareness."

That's part of a quotation from Miriam Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann with which Sol opens this article. A little later we come to that which I felt was the heart of his thought...

"Nature is one of the best healing and teaching environments that has been used by every indigenous culture to reconnect with God, or with the Divine. In a time where we are so materialistically centered, it is unsurprising that we often take for granted a gift that is so freely available. It's easy to forget that we don't own nature, but we are a part of it."
