“And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood
that was hollowed with knives?” – Khalil Gibran

The two years I spent healing with MCTC’s help meant the most painful time of my life also became the most joyful.

I can hardly remember what was said in my first few sessions there, such was the intensity of shock after being raped, but I do remember feeling warmth and safety around me, and I gradually started to relax. I felt safe enough to give my body the space I needed to heal.

Whenever I walked through the doors of MCTC I felt that I was coming home. I was stepping into an environment where I could be totally myself and I had an instant sense of belonging. I was held respectfully and gently by the other people there, and there was an ease about how pain was carried: it was all ok. All of me was ok.

Through the quality of my personal therapy, the Breath of Life workshops, Creative Practices, and other groups, I do not feel I simply healed from my trauma: I flourished.

PAIN IS REAL BUT SO IS HOPE – Please Help MCTC to provide HOPE.
