Acknowledgement of Country
Good Energy Minds (GEM) acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that the GEM website may contain names, images and voices of deceased persons.
GEM is a majority owned Indigenous business and believes in the integrity of sustainable representation for Indigenous people in Australia, and internationally. To respectfully deliver on our promise, all outcomes are mutually designed and delivered with and for the benefit of Indigenous communities. Foremost is our belief in empowerment through the exchange of knowledge, now and for our future generations.
We have worked on projects in the New England, Moree and Pallamallawa regions where we lead with Indigenous principles to respectfully share knowledge by engaging a range of approaches to deliver effective outcomes.
This approach is “Good” and creates “Energy” (environmental, physical, meta-physical) through utilising ours and others’ “Minds”, which are infinitely powerful if applied collectively for the greater “Good”. We are delivering a sustainable future through shared knowledge
