Manny Satija is a human rights lawyer, mediator, coach and psychotherapist. His work straddles the domains of social justice, cultural repair, and individual healing, and integrates at its core a systemic and integrative approach to responsibility and wellbeing.
Manny has worked closely with First Nations communities across Australia over many years and has been intimately involved in developing and implementing reparations and healing initiatives for Stolen Generations survivors. He was involved in conducting over 400 historic private sessions with sexual abuse survivors across Australia as a member of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. He has delivered numerous workshops relating to Australian drug policy and substance usage at music festivals and has published writings relating to human rights, wild law, earth ethics, and the legal status of Ayahuasca in Australia, including as it relates to freedom of religion-based arguments for sacramental usage of medicinal plants.
Manny’s current work includes therapeutic-legal mediation services for individuals, families, and organisations. He simultaneously retains a private practice as a psychotherapist and coach, and facilitates emotional intelligence and leadership development training as a partner in the Australian company Primal Intelligence.
