Who Can Attend the Saprea Healing Webinar?

The Saprea Healing Webinar is designed for adult women who were sexually abused at or before the age of 18. We created the Saprea Healing Webinar because we saw various services for survivors in crisis, but virtually nothing for survivors who, years or decades later, still feel the effects of the abuse. If you have been living with the impacts of child sexual abuse and are interested in tools and practices to support your healing, the Saprea Healing Webinar may be for you.

Can I Still Attend Saprea Retreat?

Participants who attend the Healing Webinar are still welcome to apply to attend the Saprea Retreat if they wish to do so. The Saprea Retreat is a free four-day in-person experience followed by a self-guided online course. The Healing Webinar is also open to participants who have previously attended retreat and could benefit from a refresher on what was taught.
