The Pilgrim was invited for the second time to share some storytelling at this special spot in Brighton East. This place is called RAW Garden and it’s run by one of the most inspiring woman I’ve ever met. Her name is Mariam Issa. A Somali woman who came to Australia in 1998 as a refugee. Since then she has been working hard to break down barriers, assisting women and connecting people from heart.

RAW garden has joined Storytelling Victoria to celebrate the Hindu Festival of Lights Diwali. Celebrated every year is one of the major festivals of Hinduism, spiritually it signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

A precious session that we are treasuring in our memories. We took time to folded them all up so we could pack them in our suitcase… and guess what?! We still having plenty of room for more of these lovely moments.
