Indira Naidoo | Losing My Sister & Finding Solace in Urban Nature

Uninterrupted by Women’s Health Australia

For as long as broadcaster Indira Naidoo can remember, her two sisters have always been by her side. With only a year between each of them, they were inseparable, almost like triplets. For almost 50 years, they shared every moment of their lives with one another. Until Indira's younger sister Manika took her own life. In this episode, Indira talks to our executive editor Kara Byers about the impact her sister's death has had on her, which she writes about in her new book The Space Between the Stars (Murdoch Books, $32.99), her grief journey, and how she found solace and healing in urban nature, including an unlikely connection with a 100-year-old fig tree and looking to the night sky.This podcast discusses suicide and death by suicide.

Indira Naidoo - How nature healed tragedy

Powerful Stories with Tory Archbold

It's such a powerful question when you ask yourself, "Who am I?" ABC Broadcaster and best-selling Author Indira Naidoo spent many hours sitting by a tree and listening to the secret whispers that come from inside us. She discovered who she was by simply slowing down and immersing herself in mother nature. She shares with Tory Archbold on the Powerful Stories podcast how she learned during the Australian lockdown what it must have been like for so many other broadcasters during conflicts and war as it was the closest we've come to that kind of environment in Australia, where you just have to trust that who we are and what we know and how strong our community is will get us through whatever this 'thing' is we are dealing with. She found her 'tree' and her life purpose after her sister took her life during lockdown and share's the power of how she survived this time, traversing between two worlds - the public and private  - to come out the other side stronger and passionate about advocating the power of nature as a natural healing source. Her book The Space between Stars explains how we can live to our fullest life potential when we take the time to invest in healing our mind, body and spirit.
