Publisher's Summary

Short-listed, ABIA Awards, 2023

The ancient wisdom in this audiobook will give you tips, practises, inspiration and motivation that can enable you to achieve a state of mind, body and spirit wellness you didn't think possible.

Tired of going around in circles? It’s time to reconnect with your story and make it the best story possible.

The Dreaming Path ensures our life journey is one of fulfilment. The path has always been there, but in the modern world, it can be hard to find. There are so many demands on us—family, health, bills, a mortgage, a career—that it can be hard to remember what’s most important: you.

Through conversations, exercises, dreamtime stories and key messages, Paul Callaghan and Uncle Paul Gordon will share knowledge that reveals the power of Aboriginal spirituality as a profound source of contentment and wellbeing for anyone willing to listen. This ancient wisdom is just as relevant today as it ever was.

The tools provided in this audiobook will give you tips, practises, inspiration and motivation that can enable you to achieve a state of mind, body and spirit wellness you didn’t think possible. Are you ready to connect with the Dreaming Path—to heal, renew and live a good story? It all starts with the first step.

Wisdom

Wisdom from men who have lived diverse lives with experience of both traditional/reawakened First Nations culture and business and public service leadership/management roles. They have lived full lives that have involved both crisis and empowerment, experiencing the failures of our contemporary corporate system to support the psychological health of people within it, contrasted with the wise support offered by traditional Australian Aboriginal cultural practices and structures - the Law/Lore of this land. Each chapter begins with a wonderful teaching story that I learned more from than a lot of the discussion afterwards.

Some of the discussion after the stories is given a structure that sometimes felt to me a bit like a lesson at a Trade School or TAFE (where Paul Callaghan taught and worked in leadership roles for many years), which will work for some listeners but perhaps not others. But apart from that, I can recommend this book for its wise self-help advice brought by men who are grounded in real life experience and their connection to the land and a wise, grounded culture that is over 60,000 years old.

A life changer. A book for one's life library

What an awesome read. I absolutely loved it! Resonates with where I sit presently in my lifes story. It's definitely one I'll be adding to my " life's library." I've brought the hard copy for quick review and re-education lessons also. This is one of those books that just keeps giving. It’s just so full of passion and personal truth's and layered with a multitude of lessons. Thanks, Paul Callaghan and Uncle Paul Gordon, for taking the time to share your rich and diverse culture.

Insightful, grounding and connecting

The rich history of storytelling interwoven with wisdom from across generations. This book was food for the soul and I thoroughly enjoyed the stories of ancestral animals and the life lessons we can extract from these. A beautiful book!
