My Story Has the Power to Help Others


It took me four days to buy my round-trip ticket. I had already started my healing journey and the Saprea Retreat was right there at my fingertips. I had no problem finding all the flights there and back. But, buying the ticket I would start to sweat and panic. Finally, my husband purchased it. He knew it was causing me a lot of issues so he did it himself. I am so thankful he did that. 

When I arrived, I looked like a deer in headlights. So much to take in, my mind was racing. I got to my room and took a deep breath, and it all fell into place. 

I left the retreat understanding why my brain and body responded to things the way it does. I can control my mind and my body. I am so thankful for Saprea. It saved my life. I always thought no one would think I was a victim cause my accuser was a woman. I wasn’t alone and so many others can relate. The women I meet there are a godsend. We formed a bond that no one will understand. I am so thankful for them and the chance to be a part of something so amazing. I will share my story until my last breath because I know someone out there is struggling inside to be set free.
