Common Threads Advocate

We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Jaya join us from Fremantle, Western Australia to host performances with poetry music and story here in the Perth Hills as part of our annual ‘Common Threads Woven Through Community’ Project.

A storyteller and poet, Jaya performs folktales, sacred stories and poetry from around the world as well as holding workshops in Creative Writing and Story Medicine.

Jaya has completed studies in Creative Writing and Literature at Curtin University. As a well-renowned and respected facilitator at The Sound Temple, Jaya is passionate about keeping the ancient art of storytelling and poetry alive and thriving.

Common Threads Woven Through Community is a month long community engagement project which includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages.
Our 2020 theme embraces the inter connection of our living world – the seen and unseen “The Pollination of Life” exploring the underlying connections between artists, creatives, sustainable enterprises and movements. As we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet.

These events are designed to share art and craft forms and exchange knowledge, to open participants up to a new way of life, they encourage the questioning of our thought patterns, they support the dissolving of old belief systems bringing a sense of belonging. You will feel deeply inspired by being part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
