Part 2 – Sacred Healing Process:
Healing from sexual trauma is a very personal process. Depending on the level of betrayal or assault, It can take years to truly find the path to healing and it can also happen in the blink of an eye. The most important part of healing these deep wounds is cultivating the safety in community to be witnessed in your innocence and perfection. A survivor can move past the pain of shame, guilt, sadness, anger and grief when they have a healthy support system in place. The Joyous Heart Network has created a unique sacred ceremony/healing process that will help you move closer to your own personal path to forgiveness while also opening the door to intimacy with yourself and others.
