Community, Compassion & Connection

We invite you to gather here in a space that is guided by community, compassion and
connection in support of an individuals journey through Recovery from Eating Issues or an Eating Disorder.

 
 

Eating in the light of the moon
Dr. Anita Johnston 

“A labyrinth is an ancient and mysterious archetype. It consists of one pathway that loops back repeatedly upon itself, reaching the centre and then winds its way back out again. Unlike a maze, there are no barriers, false turns, or dead ends. The women on the road to recovery from disordered eating began with a journey that required them to follow a twisting, turning, winding path to their centres.

It requires them to leave behind old perceptions of themselves that they had adopted from others and to reclaim their own inner authorities. They had to find themselves letting go of all expectation of linear progress, disengaging the rational mind, and embracing the power of their emotions and intuition. As they walk this labyrinth, there are times they felt trapped, lost, bored, disoriented, frustrated, or anxious, but they keep on going, placing one foot in front of the other. Finding their centres, is not the end of the journey.

They then must spiral outwardly, integrating this new vision with their extended world."

A reflection on how we gather

Our offerings take place at our House of Hope located in Woombye, as well as across the Sunshine Coast. Our heart here at endED is centered on diverse ways of ‘coming together.’ Through mindful consideration, we focus our services on creating space that invites individuals to find support and connection through their journey of Recovery.

We hope to maintain a space that is: inclusive, safe and home-like.

We strive to create a space that consistent and predictable, with aspects that remain flexible, in order to respond and adapt to our participants.

During our time together we invite; reflection, contemplation, creativity, expression and diverse experiencing.

Each day we meet and honour the land in which we gather. Here on the land of the Kabi Kabi and Jinibara Peoples. We would like to acknowledge their continuing connection to land, waters and culture and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We pledge our ongoing solidarity with the traditional owners and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, in their struggle for recognition of sovereignty, historical truths and justice.
