Attending Retreat Taught Me How to Survive in This World


I was told about Saprea Retreat from a friend. She said: “I know it sounds too good to be true, but trust me, I worked there and it’s real, and you won’t regret it.” Thanks to her, I signed up and drove myself to the retreat. I still don’t know how I had the courage to do so, but I did, and my friend was right, I don’t regret it. 

From my arrival to the departure when I cried for leaving my sisters, it was the best experience of my life, and every contact with Saprea team made me want to stay there forever. I wish everybody was kind and empathetic like them, unfortunately that’s not the world we live in. Attending the Saprea Retreat taught me how to survive in this world. 

I still have pain and nightmares, but now I have understanding and, most importantly, I am healing and becoming the better version of myself that I always dreamed of. This version of Dani is resilient, hopeful, kind, and understanding with herself. She takes it step-by-step and she knows it’s okay to sometimes not take any step at all. She also knows she’s not alone, and that she can pursue her dream career of helping others in their own journey of healing. 

I hope that you will take a step and sign up because, trust me, you won’t regret it. The strength you need to overcome the bad things that happened to you are inside of you. You’re not alone, and we’re stronger together! 

Stay kind and strong! 

-Dani, Survivor
