Why is it called Rakhi Retreat?

November 8, 2016

Rakhi refers to a string and symbolises the abstract connection between people in the languages of India and Eastern Arnhem Land, Australia (Yolngu spelling Raki). During Raksha Bandhan in Hindu culture sisters tie a Rakhi around their brothers’ wrists to evoke a bond of protection which represents unity and a commitment to ensuring each other’s well being. In Yolngu culture Raki refers to strings or vines and is a central concept in some ceremonies with dancers following the yam vine to its source where the tubers are harvested. It also refers to the gurruthu or kinship connections that define identity and relationship in the Yolngu universe. Given the abundance of native vines on the property and our strong connection to both Hindu and Yolngu cultures Rakhi was the perfect name for a peaceful space that allows you reconnect with yourself and the natural world.
