My Abuse was Still Running My Life


I had no idea that the abuse I suffered so many years ago, was still running my life! 

It was Saprea Retreat that brought me to awareness, hope, sisterhood, understanding and safety. 

I had packed memories of abuse so deep within in me and just did the best I could to accept that it was the way life would be. I settled to endure life instead of living it. I had put so many walls up, with so many fears and no way to face them or no place to turn. Carrying the shame and guilt from the darkness of my past. 

The retreat awakened me to a new way of being. They shined light on a new path to take on my journey to heal and I learned tools to use along the way.
