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.
