"I am a 22 year old woman who came to Rharian Fields in the September of 2012. When I first arrived the memories of past experiences overshadowed my thoughts and I felt quite apprehensive, was this going to be another long admission that bared no result? In the past I have been admitted to several hospitals and specialist eating disorder units, the majority of which held times of misery and left me with recollections I would rather forget. However, the minute I was met at the door by a nurse from the unit I felt a sense of calm of which I have not encountered before on first entering a Looking back on that time the memories are faded, but what sticks in my mind is the level of kindness, care and complete and utter acceptance for the individual I am. You see the staff here at Rharian Fields accept each service user as a person without stereotypes and without just seeing ‘the eating disorder' and instead looking underneath to reveal and develop the person that is buried beneath.
I carry on with my journey in the knowledge that I have the power to recover. I feel so fortunate that I was transferred to Rharian Fields because without them I do not think I would have ever have recovered." Goddess of the bountiful harvest and the nurturing spirit In Greek mythology the goddess Demeter was the most generous of the great Olympian goddesses. She was beloved for her service to mankind in giving them the gift of the harvest, the reward for cultivation of the soil. Also known as the Roman goddess Ceres, Demeter was the goddess of the harvest and was credited with teaching humans how to grow, preserve, and prepare grain. Demeter was thought to be responsible for the fertility of the land. The Rharian Field was located in Eleusis in Greece and was supposedly where the first plot of grain was grown after Demeter taught humanity agriculture.
She was the only one of the Greek goddesses who was involved on a day-to-day basis in the lives of the humans. While others occasionally "dabbled" in human affairs when it suited their personal interests, or came to the aid of "special" mortals they favoured, the goddess Demeter was truly the nurturer of mankind. Demeter also was the only one of the Greek goddesses who could truly empathize with the human experience of suffering and grief, having experienced it fully herself. The story of Greek goddess Demeter illustrates the tremendous capacity of a woman to love and nurture, within her own family and the world at large.
It also reminds us to stand firm for what is good and right, even in the face of adversity, when powerful forces are aligned against us. The goddess Demeter's message also reminds us of the seasons of a woman's life, that even though there are times of great sorrow there is also great joy to be found.
