Caldera Psychology landscape

A nurturing space

The expansiveness of a caldera holds space and time. The Tweed is one of the largest natural erosion calderas in the world. Twenty-three million years ago a volcano erupted causing the land around the volcanic vent to collapse inward, creating a bowl-shaped landscape. The ancient Wollumbin stands at its centre. Just as this fertile land holds and nourishes plants and wildlife, a safe therapeutic space can do the same for us, and help us to grow.

Acknowledgement of Country

We live and work on the stolen lands of the Moorang-Moobar people of the Tweed Bundjalung Nation, whose knowledge and care have stewarded this country for centuries. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present, acknowledging their unceded sovereignty. We are grateful for their unbroken connection with Country, and appreciate First Nations peoples knowledge holding about health and healing that has been practiced for thousands of years and continues today.
