After posting this link, I just heard from two amazing women advocates who work with domestic assault, abuse, and sexual assault survivors. I wanted to share their resources here. The first is Maine’s own Finding our Voices and the second is Helping Survivors. I’ve written about breaking the silence and being a part of a Tribe of Transcendence and am grateful for these connections. To whomever is reading please know—you are not alone.
I would love to hear from you. Do you have ways that bring you calm or brave books and resources to share. Please join the conversation below.
Give a Free Book to a Survivor
I wrote this book during my five-year, 12,000 nautical-mile sail to the Bay of Virgins in French Polynesia—my lifelong dream. When I started the sail I had PTSD at sea when I was really afraid. By developing this calming practice I was able to short-circuit my PTSD. I found it lifesaving. I am now sharing it with survivors. If you would like to give a give a free book to a survivor who calls a helpline please check out this Go Fund Me program. Heartfelt Thanks! Singular acts of compassion can have profound impacts on generations. You never know whom you might inspire or where it might lead.
