Tomorrow we leave home and head off on a three week, nearly 7000km (4300ml) road trip, which will take us into the spiritual heart of Australia.
We first drive down to Melbourne, where I’m taking some photos at a friend’s wedding. After that, we’ll catch up with The Landers Express, which is always a breathless occasion!
Peter & Julie Landers, of Portuguese Camino fame, have kindly invited us to stay overnight, so it will be a great chance to catch up – as long as they don’t break out the White Port. Last time we visited I brought them a 44 gallon drum (or thereabouts) of a Mudgee White Port.
I wonder if there’s any left?
From Melbourne we then head north, up to a remote aboriginal community north of Alice Springs. It’s called Utopia. We’ve been invited to film with some aboriginal elders – some wise men. I want to get their unique perspective on intuition for the PGS film.
We’re living with them for a few days, and they’ve also given us permission to film some ceremonial dances, which they don’t often do. So that should be fascinating.
We then drive back to Alice Springs, overnight, then the following day make our way to Uluru – once known as Ayers Rock – an iconic Australian symbol.
I’ve traveled extensively throughout Australia, and there aren’t many places I haven’t been to during my time as a documentary maker, but I’ve never been to Uluru.
I’m looking forward to it. To me, it seems to be the spiritual heart of Australia.
Jennifer and I are staying there for five days to attend a Consciousness Retreat, convened by a very famous US spiritual channeller named Kryon. Jennifer has been listening to Kryon podcasts for years – and he has very strong and well articulated views on intuition.
We then drive back home –
We’re back about two weeks, then we’re off to Italy for the Assisi Tour, then Turkey to film with the Sufis, again for PGS. So it’s a busy time now up until mid June.
Here is a link to the Retreat –
