Sustainability, Integrity, Creativity & Conscious Community

Common Threads - A Dynamic New Impulse for Change

Common Threads Woven Through Community is an annual community engagement project proudly brought to you by The Sound Temple in Perth Hills.  Each year we will be sharing Sustainability Workshops Galore with many of them tapping into long-lost traditions which we are passionate about shining a light on to pave the way for others to follow.

Come and join talented artisans, many of them from our local communities, who will be showcasing their arts and crafts and sharing their gifts in hands-on workshops, presentations and talks. Come and see what they’re doing and how you can become part of this new way forward. Because we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet. Each and every one of us.


Come and Be Part of the Change

We get lost if we stay stuck in confusing and mucky feelings of guilt, blame, shame and powerlessness. Let’s not stay stuck in that cycle of disempowerment any longer. Step by step, hand in hand, through collaboration and community lets journey together, to mutually inspire, to create personal changes in our life style choices that will have far- reaching impacts.

Common Threads Woven Through Community Integrates sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages, where you’ll be left feeling deeply inspired to become part of a brand new impulse of change. Come and join some of the movers and shakers – many of the people from our local communities -who are on the cutting edge of sustainability and change. Individuals who are paving a new way forward that is creatively brilliant, accessible, sustainable and hands on inspiring. Come and see what they’re doing and how you can become part of this new way forward. Because we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet. Each and every one of us.

Join us for our Annual Event ‘Common Threads Woven Through Community’ held at The Sound Temple as we weave something truly remarkable together!
