NPY Women’s Council meditation app
Posted on: Fri 26 Apr 2019
In this week’s Anangu Lands Paper Tracker radio show, we hear about a new app that has been developed by the NPY Women’s Council – the Uti Kulintjaku mindfulness and meditation app.
The app has been developed with Smiling Mind, supported by the NIB Foundation. Smiling Mind worked with the NPY Women’s Council to develop a mindfulness program aimed at providing accessible and engaging mental health tools for Anangu. These meditations have been scripted and recorded by senior Anangu women in Pitjantjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra. The NIB Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation, which provided funding support to the NPY Women’s Council and Smiling Mind to deliver the mindfulness-based meditation program in language.
To find out more about this app and why and how it was developed, we talk with Ms Rene Kulitja and Ms Wanatjura Lewis from the NPY Women’s Council’s Uti Kulintjaku wellbeing and mental health program.
This program was made possible with support from the Community Broadcasting Foundation. Find out more at cbf.org.au
