Visitor Comments: [] Arrived on a cold autumn afternoon to catch the train at Redcar East Station and greeted with "Howdie mate" (or the like) in a broad Australian accent. Within two minutes I had received a huge bear hug, and all from this total, but so likeable stranger who exuded warmth. He'd just done a session at Ings Farm school where he had clearly left his mark. Before we reached Darlington we were strangers no longer. Refreshingly open and caring to all he meets on the way. This guy has a special message that all need to hear, of love and respect for all people. I am sure we both parted the better for having met each other, an maybe better understanding each other and out respective "faiths"

I live in the UK and have just seen you on Channel Five's Psychic Challenge Sunday 4th December 2005 aired at 8pm.
It was so uncanny as I have been interested in Aborigine culture and I had recently read about Wirrigan people and have been wanting to learn more, especially use of psychic abilities and dreaming culture. I have been wanting to get some genuine information about aborigine culture which is hard to come by and I was just thinking about this when you appeared on the show, how psychic is that??? LOL  
Anyhoo, just wanted to say it was great to see you on the show and I wish you had more time to inform us about your wonderful need to get your own TV show!
Please try and come to Leeds in Yorkshire on your next travels in the UK! We love storytelling up here too!  
Happy and safe journeys!
Peace and Light!

i wandered into your website purely by fate. What a surprise to find a didge site sponsored by finding my favorite poem, The Man in the Mirror. Thank You for that lovely recital.  Every man, woman and child should hear it at least once.

  Godspeed Spirited One...



The Cedars Primary School Francis was awesome and cool. He was a great hit with the children and had their attention held for over an hour. His storytelling really captivated the children's interest and imagination as well as providing a useful history about his family and his people. He also worked alot on raising children's self-esteem and did alot of work around social skills. Invovling the children was also great. The art workshops were amazing and the children learnt alot of new skills. Philip and his didgeridoo had the chidlren captiavted for over 40 minutes. A great success that I recommend to anyone.
