Purro Birik - (Healthy Spirit)




The Men of Wathaurong believe that they need a place to call their own. They describe a "Men's Business Place" as a venue that would meet the SESW needs they identify within their community as Koori men.
It has been explained to the Moroponuk Officer as an area of land that is reasonably isolated, that is comprised largely of native bush, and that has accommodation facilities. The men feel that this place would provide the appropriate environment for alcohol and drug recovery, would act as a refuge from relationship disputes, could provide a place of support and recovery for men with mental illness, and a short term residence for men with legal issues and/or bail difficulties.

It is also proposed by the men that this place would be a venue for the Men's Business Group to meet, provide guidance to the male youth of the community, and to work together to resolve their SESW issues in a cultural and spiritual manner.

The men propose to develop, support, and run this service themselves. They intend to design the "house rules" of this service, to ensure compliance to those rules, and to be responsible for the manner in which this service proceeds.

It is possible (as discussed in the youth business) that this proposal could be combined with the Koori Place of Spiritual and Cultural Healing. Again this would be a matter for the community to discuss and decide as a whole.
