The Secret of Living in Community
Runtime: 71 min

In a culture where individuals have come to feel increasingly isolated, how do we make deep connections with the land, with ourselves and with each other?  How do we resolve conflict and make difficult decisions?  Inspired by Aboriginal wisdom and with a beautiful backdrop of Australian landscape, Deep Listening learns what makes communities work and shows the path to a more harmonious way of being.

Quietly honouring the rich diversity of the Australian landscape and featuring alternative-lifestyle pioneers such as David Holmgren, Carol Perry and John Seed, Deep Listening presents an insightful exploration of intentional communities across Australia from the Aquarius Festival to the present day.  Many of their ways of building community and making decisions resonate with the Aboriginal way of dadirri – a form of respectful connection to self, to the land and to each other.  Welsh film maker Helen iles creates a compelling account of a country with a story to tell.
