As a child Nikki’s mother, a member of Stolen Generations, would read poems to her in lieu of bed time stories – this is where Nikki’s passion for poetry began. While her English skills where behind in School, Nikki continued to write her poems as a form of therapeutic release. After discovering a passion for reading as a teen, Nikki’s literacy improved and with the support of some of her teachers, Nikki decided to major in Literature at ACU.
She has been performing poetry to audiences at Spoken Word nights since October 2016 – this is where she developed her public speaking skills which has led to many professional opportunities since.
Nikki describes her writing as raw and honest. Her dream is to become published poet and author, as well as an Indigenous rights activist.

Ngatanwarr (Welcome) to Wayapa® Wuurrk!
Based on ancient Indigenous knowledge and wisdom that focuses on taking care of the Earth as the starting point for healing ourselves.
Having an energy connection to the Earth is what has sustained Australian Aboriginal people to be the world’s oldest, continuous living culture – for over 80,000 years!
Today, for most of us, we have become disconnected from the land, from our tribe, from our food and from our Spirit. Through Earth mindfulness, deep breathing and narrative meditation and movement, Wayapa® provides a sense of belonging to the Earth while creating holistic wellbeing.
Wayapa® can be done as a 25 minute physical practice, sitting or standing, or as a narrative meditation to slow us right down to sit in the stillness of nature.

The intention of Soul Dance is to provide a space to shake off your week, dance however your body wants to move, and let go through a fun physical movement practice. It can be deeply relaxing, energising, and releasing. Each week is slightly different, facilitated by a different member of the Soul Dance committee or a guest. See you on the dance floor.
