WHO WE ARE
bangka healing arts is a healing arts project developed by nawa sybico to support decolonising peoples find home in themselves through right relationship with their bodies, minds, communities, histories, and the land.
This project is a synthesis of the animx through the practice of herbalism, somatics, and astrological philosophies.
We are guided by QTIBIPOC, anti-oppressive, & healing justice frameworks to respond holistically to generational trauma and colonial violence by embodying practices that transform the consequences of oppression.

Individuals or Organisations:
Working with Nawa has transformed our organisation’s culture, and ways of working. Since our launch, Nawa has provided ongoing somatic support for individual team members, held spaces for our entire team, and worked with both our directors together to work through organisational challenges.
This support has enabled us to challenge dominant cultural issues such as urgency, power hoarding, defensiveness, interpersonal conflict and excessive workloads, and has supported us toward calm and thoughtful decision making, creative brainstorming and strategising, noticing and preventing burnout and the creation of personalised working practices that meet individual team members’ needs.
Nawa takes an intersectional approach that has made every team member feel safe and understood, with antiracism, disability justice and queerness central to their practice.

In the old days, my ancestors would travel over deep waters on bangkas / outrigger canoes. As displaced or diasporic peoples, we remember the guidance of the wind, lihangin, & stars, lisuga, to find our way home.
