Postponed

Our thanks for the support and understanding of all involved in making the very difficult decision to postpone The Deep Dive 2020 to later on in the year. We believe this is the best course of action to minimise risk, protect each other and ensure Ngaran Ngaran Deep Dive 2020 is as good as it should be!

Revised date coming soon!

Ngaran Ngaran Deep Dive 2020
20-22 April 2020 • Narooma, NSW

We have much to learn from our world's oldest living cultures about ways of learning and leading.

The traditional custodians of Yuin country invite you to come, walk and listen to a sacred dreaming of creation that Gulaga holds.

Join others who are passionate about creating a new world of work; who are open to an ancient cultural way of knowing. This special Deep Dive will help you learn from indigenous experience. Renew your approach to leadership by discovering more about stewardship, values and sustainability as you immerse yourself in the world's oldest living cultures. Held on beautiful Yuin land at Narooma over two days, attendees will explore how our leadership, organisations, businesses and social systems can evolve to support greater systemic health and flourishing.

The Deep Dive provides a platform for candid, productive discussions between leaders. It is a time for personal growth and reflection. All meals and accommodation are covered, leaving you to focus on the most pressing questions in contemporary leadership.

What you will learn

After immersion in the wisdom of the world's oldest living cultures, we will spend time exploring questions relating to leadership, culture and guiding systemic transformation through the lens of local and global leadership challenges.

Attend Deep Dive to:
Participate in and witness a traditional Aboriginal ceremony, dance, yidaki (didgeridoo), and yarning circles
Meet, talk with and learn from knowledgeable Aboriginal guides – the traditional custodians and community from the Yuin nation with generational traditional interpretations
Understand the practical application of living systems thinking and regenerative practises in our work as leaders and change-agents.

Dwayne 'Naja' Bannon-Harrison, with over 17 years of experience along with nine generations of cultural teachings passed down. Dwayne and the family team at Ngaran Ngaran Culture Awareness invite all walks of life onto Yuin country to learn and immerse themselves in the world's oldest living culture.

Dwayne's grandfather, Uncle Max (Dulumunmun) Harrison, has been teaching his culture to non-indigenous people for 50 years. His grandfather did the same in the 1800s. Dwayne, whose traditional name Naja means "strong little fella", began leading Ngaran Ngaran Culture Awareness tours seven years ago. "Grandfather says we have to give our culture away to keep it," he says.
