In January 2014, best selling author, Rachel Thompson and therapist/author, Bobbi Parish, both survivors, began a Twitter chat #sexabusechat as a forum for support and healing for survivors of sexual abuse. With that resource quickly becoming so popular, they teamed with success coach and mentor, Athena Moberg to offer a Google Hangout on the evening following the chat to further process the topic of the week.
From there, these women have formed the NoMoreShameProject offering support, coaching services, publication and more. Within this project, there are many opportunities for a survivor to thrive, an opportunity which I find in short supply.
I’ve been fortunate enough to stumble upon these incredibly warm, inclusive, determined and very smart!! women. I’d like to pass this resource on to anyone touched by the issue of sexual abuse, child abuse or family violence. When we actually begin to find our voice and begin to hold each other’s hands, a miracle happens. Shame is released giving us long desired acceptance and freedom.
Check them out, grab a hand of a survivor friend and let’s circle the world!
