Waking Up: A Support Group for Religious Trauma
Our stories, and how we view them,
Come find a on-going, community that meets weekly to unpack our trauma and how it continues to influence our lives. This group provides readings, resources, meditations, and discussions to cultivate a space that can foster connection and safety. To that aim, this group requires a four-month commitment, in order to provide enough time for our nervous systems to settle with each other. Group members will vote on the subjects they would like to explore during their four-month commitment and we will explore together how our trauma still lives and what healing can look like.
