Smoking Ceremony – Uniting’s Inner City Relocation

“The smoking ceremony is a traditional Noongar ritual used to not only cleanse and purify a specific area but it cleanses the spirit, body and soul whilst you are on Noongar Country. It also helps to ward off warra wirrin – bad spirits and to bring in the blessings of the kwop wirrin – good spirits… This ritual of purification and unity signifies the beginning of something new.” Kaartdijin Noongar – Noongar Knowledge.

The first phase of our relocation from Victoria Park to our Inner City office in Aberdeen Street is now complete and staff are enjoying working with a new mix of staff from across the organisation.

Thank you Mitchell Garlett for leading us in the ceremony.
