This is the second of Sandi’s two new offerings for 2017, an attempt by a woman who has “walked the walk” to offer support, understanding and guidance to those who have left the violence behind physically but perhaps not emotionally, spiritually or mentally.
In this seminar, participants are introduced to common traits of those that have survived domestic abuse – hesitancy to trust others, distrust of own instincts, fear, flashbacks, nightmares and many others. Then discussion takes place as to why these things happen, putting the blame where it truly belongs, on the abuser not on the abused.
Solutions are presented, ways and means to get past the remnants of the abuse, grounded largely in Ojibwe teachings.
Women are left realizing they were not wrong to love or trust and that when they are ready, they will be able to do same again.
