i'd apply to go only my medications make me less than how present they want wimmin to be who attend. so i respect that, and while i think it's a bit of a downer that it really excludes wimmin who have to be medicated in order to live, i wanted to share it with you all in case you know somewomyn who could really benefit from this.

Mayumarri is an affordable healing centre for people who have experienced childhood trauma. Our mission is to ensure that sufferers become survivors, so they can go on to fulfil their true potential in life. Healing from trauma and abuse takes everything you've got, but you've got everything it takes.

Mayumarri has a healing center located in NSW, but they're bringing the week-long program to a location that's 1 and half hours from melbourne. it's an expensive program, but if you're on a pension or you have an awfully low income, you can negotiate down to a really fair $50.
