Join Wild Iris Books as we host a 3-month participant guided workshop to help self-identified women work through sexual trauma and violence in their lives. Often times our need for personal safety in the wake of these experiences forces us to build walls in a quest for self-preservation. Our goal is to break these walls, build escape doors, or create windows to let the light in. Our journeys are different but we believe the commonalities of our distress can help us forge a way to a more complete inner peace.
In order to promote group trust and intimacy we are asking that participants do their best to commit to all three sessions. No one will be turned away if you have a schedule conflict, so please know that you are still welcome to join us as you are able. All workshops will be held at Wild Iris from 7-9pm.
The workshops will combine sharing, storytelling, writing, painting, music, and interconnectedness as we allow each other to break through our walls of secrets and create paths to healing that can help free us from the violence that lives in our skin and souls. Groups will be facilitated by women in our community with no formal counselor training and we will allow the collective voice of the group to shape our movement and expression.
Confidentiality is paramount and all participants will be expected to hold communications in the highest most sacred regard. All materials will be provided, but we ask that you consider donating what you can afford to Wild Iris Books in support of their feminist mission.
