Hello!

Welcome to a New Beginning

Life 2 exists to provide low cost or no cost healing & recovery solutions for women who have experienced domestic or family violence and related abuses, and who are financially challenged as a result. We deliver highly effective services that heal, empower, educate and connect our guests to live a freer and fuller life. Our quality of service and the outcomes for our participants are our highest priority We do not stand still.

This is an evolutionary journey and we are constantly shaping, developing and growing as a team and in our work, developing content, delivery methods and ideologies to support a trauma-informed safe space for women’s healing.

Did You Know

One in three women in Australia is affected by domestic violence.

For the ones that are successful in leaving there are many challenges to face. Two of the main challenges are emotional and financial trauma. Many women are faced with the choice between struggling to survive financially or returning to the abuser. Many are at risk of homelessness. After any separation, it can be difficult to start again, especially when also supporting children, but starting over in a state of trauma with no way to afford an effective way to release it can seem impossible.

The Solution

The Life 2 Project provides subsidized placements for women on a low income, through our social enterprise model, to attend our Retreats and Workshops at a fraction of the full cost. We guide our guests through deep emotional release processes and equip them with strategies and tools to take away and implement every day to break out of the negative emotional spiral. We work with women to build a constructive mindset, change negative beliefs and to challenge old patterns.

Our Beliefs

We believe that a holistic approach to emotional empowerment is the most effective way to break the cycle of domestic violence. We believe that every woman has the right to heal past wounds, to be empowered to live the life she chooses, to receive education in the areas that build awareness of body, mind and spirit and to be connected with a like-minded and supportive community. We believe that every woman has
the right to live free of the emotional trauma of past experiences. We believe that every woman has the right to access effective processes and information, regardless of income.

Our Impact

Through bringing emotional empowerment and the ability to heal from trauma within the reach of a very large and mostly unsupported sector of our society, our work provides not only a huge benefit to the individual but also for her family, her local community and on a national and global scale. Research shows that healing trauma leads to a more fulfilling and productive life, more connected relationships and better long term health.

Our Philosophy – The Four Pillars

Heal

Meet the Founder

Jane Sleight-Leach

Jane began her “Life 2” when she left an abusive relationship and she has not looked back!

“Several years ago I began my journey back to myself. I was fearful – dreading my own future. I was distressed, disconnected, full of self-loathing and shame. The hopes and dreams I’d had for my life were shattered. My choices were simple .keep doing what I’d been doing, accept and live with the pain and misery in my life OR face my fears head-on and make changes. I began my healing journey, I gathered knowledge, I sought out experiences, I gifted myself the openness to receiving what was needed to fill me up, and I didn’t shy away from accepting the challenges.”

Jane’s commitment to finding relief from emotional trauma led her to become a trained facilitator in the processes that she found were most effective. The exciting part is that she has developed a holistic approach to help break the cycle of domestic violence, not only on a personal level but on a generational level. Jane has put her wish list of what she needed to restart her life into action and can now share it with others.

“I have been fortunate enough to have the support and guidance from a handful of women who walked similar paths before me. They expected nothing in return for their support, advice and rime. I’m eternally grateful and passionate about paying their generosity forward through The Life 2 Project.”
