Women's Healing Centre
I was born in Canada and with Native American ancestry and spirituality at my core, I believe we need to heal at a grassroots level and reconnect to nature, our Mother Earth.
I am raising money to purchase a property in the Otway region of South West Victoria.
My intention is to set up a healing centre for all women who need time to reconnect.
A place where women can find their identity, purpose and connection.
The women can stay for the weekend, the week or the year. It will be a semi-self sufficient space where we will grow our own food and share knowledge and experience to heal others who attend.
There are many women who have suffered from abuse as children and adults and this has had a huge impact on their health and wellbeing. Often when these issues are not resolved we begin to engage in self destructive behaviors which lead on to further problems. The first step is to learn self respect and self care and bring back what has been lost in a gentle way.
Often what is lost is our spirit and this then impacts on our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Our healing centre will be a space to talk, listen and learn.
There will be nourishing Wholefoods, bushwalking, meditation, yoga, art therapy and lots of resources to read and watch.
There will be various workshops offered from visiting holistic health practitioners and contributions from local sources. There will be a minimal cost to stay and a contribution to the daily chores of maintaining the space and preparing the meals is expected.
It is also encouraged to share your experience and knowledge to support others.
This is a healing centre that is run by the people for the people. A space to return to your inner child and begin the healing process.
The seed will be placed under her tongue to collect her DNA.
The tree and her will become one.
Hey Kit-e I love the idea but wonder which campaign type its logged under, if you don't reach your target is it a pledge that doesn't get honoured or is it a donation you keep? Don't you need an extra $35k for fees on top of property cost? And stamp duty? And legal costs ect? I'm keen to assist but just wondering about logistics?
