Place of Reflection
Place of Reflection Phase 2
ASeTTS, with several other community groups, is a proud partner in the Place of Reflection project.
The purpose of the Place of Reflection in Kings Park and Botanic Garden is to provide a location where all people who have suffred loss can seek understanding, peace, healing, hope and renewal.
The Place of Reflection recognises the extent of loss and grief experienced by so many in our community, each form of loss bringing its own pain, and for some that loss is especially poignant and challenging, for example:
- The immeasurable continuous pain and sorrow following the death of a child.
- For missing persons, the heavy burden of not knowing what has happened to a loved one with no opportunity for ceremony or closure - or even goodbye.
- The trauma of those who come here as refugees, leaving behind loved ones.
- The grief of Aboriginal communities, especially those hurt by the loss of traditional healing places.
The intent is to create a public reflective space of significance for the people of Western Australia which is universally accesible and recognises the needs of a multi‐cultural community.
