From the beginning of time, the Holy Spirit has been in this land of Australia, communicating the goodness and beauty of God and awakening a desire for the Sacred in the hearts of its people. For thousands of years the Aboriginal people have listened to the mystery of God in and through their culture, their Dreaming and their land.
