What would you do if beef was called Cow Flesh in the supermarket? Is it through disassociation that we feel more able to consume the body of another animal? I’m no vegetarian but it’s certainly got me thinking!
It was halloween on Friday night so The Liberators decided to meet up n’ create our own dance of freedom challenge. The first thing we noticed when we hit the streets was the freedom in the air, everyone was dressed up and it was totally ok. This lead us to think…why can’t everyday feel like halloween? Why do we need to wait for a unified day to feel free in the clothes we wear on a Saturday night? I don’t know about you but I much prefer feeling free and able to wear what ever I like without the fear of judgement… all the time. This short 1 minute video was spontaneously created to celebrate with The Liberators.
Lot’s of love, laugher and joy was shared to create this uplifting video of peace. It may seem like a few people having fun but i’d like you to consider what would happen if this was done between two opposing sides of misunderstanding. If they could share this moment together then sit down for a shared community picnic afterwards what would arise? How would they feel about their differences?
All of the people on this blog are invited to become a part of the Dance of Freedom video challenge! All you have to do is;

This video is the first of the series. I look forward to sharing more acts of freedom with you soon!
This weekend was big, we (The Liberators) transformed a busy public Train Station into a dynamic playground of love and freedom, then we drove 2 hours north into the Australian outback to create powerfully peaceful connections at a peace festival!
If you’re wondering about the magic, the photos do little justice to the magical feeling we achieved with people of all ages and backgrounds. Collectively we awoke a playful sense of freedom from within the hearts of the participants. Most of the public had no idea what was about to happen, we just involved them in games and activities and before long we had a heaving dance of freedom at the train station!
Here are a few of the photos from both experiences.
The connection found between humans and dogs is quite a special one. What is it about their presence that enables us to feel so good? After some Continue reading

On the UN international day of peace I realised one very important thing. We do not need to wait until an international day to represent peace in our everyday existence. This led me to explore how I might be able to express the gesture of peace in my everyday behaviour so here’s a simple list of 7 ideas that come to mind.
This vibrant and empowering music video explores what’s possible when we allow each other to be free and playful. This was created as part of Mental Health week with the Middle School students of Shenton College. It was an honour to have been able to share this experience with so many incredible people at the same high-school I went to when I was younger!
Special thanks to Shakira, the school psychologist for organising this wonderful opportunity.
