More Comfortable, Unafraid, & Present


Sexual abuse at such a young age created a seemingly irrevocable crack within me. This damage separated me from myself and left me unable to trust reality. Every area of my life was one thread away from slipping into oblivion. The ramifications of sexual abuse are unfortunately misunderstood by so many in our world. I was 28 when I heard about Saprea Retreat – two decades after my recurring trauma had stopped. In the most graceful way, the team at the Saprea Retreat brought me from a state of sheer inner panic to a place where I am able to start over in a more comfortable, unafraid, and present state of mind. 

You are changing lives, you changed mine. Forever grateful. Forever thankful.
