Connection: What is spirit? with co-founder Lak Mitchell and elder Mac MacCartney
"Spirit is clean water, spirit is an act of kindness, spirit is good food for people who are hungry and water when people are thirsty, it's fire when people are cold".

We spoke to co-founder Lak Mitchell and elder Mac MacCartney about the Boomtown journey and how Mac has mentored Lak over recent years.
