Reclaiming Wholeness: A workshop to heal the wounds of assault

July 20, 2019 @ 8:00 am - July 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm


| Free

Over the course of 20 hours, this workshop helps participants heal the wounds of sexual assault and abuse. People who complete this work emerge saying they feel:

  • Less pain, shame, resentment, and rage. And instead, they feel a greater sense of power, peace, and even compassion.
  • A greater sense of wholeness and a feeling that the past no longer colors their life.
  • They can own their story rather than the story having power over them.

One victim of childhood sexual assault described the success of this workshop with these words:

“I never thought I would ever be able to look at this story and not feel pain… At this point, I can honestly say that I am forever changed for the best. I am now able to reflect upon my past hurt with new eyes and a sense of completion that I didn’t think was possible.” ~ Claire, 37 years old

What the workshop will look like:

  • You will participate in a series of guided writing exercises, subconscious-remapping processes, meditations, breath work, some group sharing, and more.
  • You’ll apply a variety of mind-body tools.
  • You’ll enjoy quiet time for journaling, drawing, meditating or going for a walk.
  • Tentative dates: Sat– Sun July 20-21 (**dates to be confirmed)


This workshop is being offered pro-bono for people in the greater Burlington community. If you know someone who might be interested, please share with them this opportunity.
