A sanctuary for wholehearted living through deepening connection with nature

 

A sanctuary for wholehearted living through deepening connection with nature

Come home to a nourishing sanctuary to experience gentler, wholehearted ways of living, ever deepening connection with nature

Founded by Lucinda Giblett in Manjimup, Western Australia, Stellar Violets exists to enrich the whole of life. Functioning as a collaborative place of beauty and learning, volunteer-led initiatives map responses to pervasive ill health in self, land and society – the global “whole health” crisis. As within, so without: here, on eight acres, we care for the land, and tend our inner landscapes too. If we’re to live into a flourishing world, we need to go together. If Stellar Violets speaks to your heart, join us on the journey.

Publishing

Stellar Violets Publishing House est. 2020. Funding is sought for a train carriage publishing HQ – a “Life Library” for our 2000+ books, and, seeds to share. It’s rather a shame to have so many wondrous books holed up in boxes and suitcases… will you help unleash them to the world?

Placemaking

The first seeds were sown in 2009 around a humble cottage and worn out field. Today the inner garden has a secret-heart feel. Several heritage rail vehicles have trundled in heavy doses of magic, yet more hearts and hands are needed for the true making of this place. If you’re compelled, be one of them, and get in touch.

Education

What we do is more guide than teach, allowing the place to speak. Sow seeds of imagination, learn new ways to listen, weep, sing, & sleep. Deepen into rest, reciprocity, and connection. We’re incubating at the moment… new offerings coming soon will again crack open our hearts, and perhaps yours, too.
