Unexpected Journeys

$29.95

What happened when an Australian teacher took a giant leap into the unknown?

One day in 2002, Julie left town life behind to take up a teaching position in the Australian outback, the start of an extraordinary adventure that would take her to remote Aboriginal and Native American communities. What she experienced in these places made a profound impact on her. As one opportunity led to another, she began to question our society’s dominant values and gain a different kind of knowledge and understanding. She realised the importance of not just accepting difference but also seeking out alternative perspectives on life and education.

Funny and exciting, thoughtful and moving, Julie’s story is a must-read.

Description

Julie left town life behind to take up a teaching position in the Australian outback, the start of an extraordinary adventure.

“I say to my country and to other developing countries, that in our race to modernize, we must respect the rich ancient cultures and traditions of our peoples. We must not blindly follow the model of progress invented by Western civilization. We may envy the industrialized world for its wealth, but we must not forget that this world was bought at a very high price. The rich world suffers so much stress, pollution, violence, poverty and spiritual emptiness. The riches of indigenous communities lie not in money or commodities, but in community, in tradition, and the sense of belonging to a special place.” MUTANG URUD, KELABIT TRIBESMAN, SARAWAK, MALAYSIA, ISLAND OF BORNEO
