The Family Place in partnership with Marymead, has developed the Revival Program with the aim of strengthening community connection, bringing together the people of the Eurobodalla Shire who were impacted by the Black Summer bushfires to promote emotional health and wellbeing. This grassroots program aims to work towards building community resilience through shared stories of healing, survival and regeneration.
The Family Place delivers the cultural component of the Revival Program and facilitates events such as On Country Walks lead by local Elder Aunty Trish Ellis who brings with her a wealth of knowledge around local Indigenous history and culture. We are also offering Red Dust Healing Women’s Yarning Circles at different locations within the Shire. The Red Dust Healing program examines the intergenerational effects of colonisation on the mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing of Indigenous families and encourages individuals to confront and deal with the problems, hurt and anger in their lives.
“Healing to us is a spiritual understanding of self, identity, love, belonging family, security, hurt, heartache, good times and laughter.”
