For Weekly Encouragement, Follow Us On Social Media

Join Our Thriver Tribe Newsletter which provides Encouragement, News and Resources.

Our Mission is to create a supportive community that brings light and awareness to the shame and silence that surrounds abuse and to encourage survivors to find strength and freedom by finding their voice and claiming a story of transformation and growth leading to empowered lives.

One way we can do this is to build a virtual community of support and this email is an initial step.  Our intent is to provide Quarterly Emails that provide:

·         Encouragement to help you feel the kindred spirits of other Thrivers giving you strength

·         Exciting news and offerings to help you continue to grow

·         Resource links to help you continue to grow your mind, body and spirit

Note: You will be receiving the Email through Constant Contact so be on the lookout because sometimes these go to Junk or Other and may be lost.

Book Recommendations

Rising Strong
Brené Brown
Social scientist Brené Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. She uncovers a profound truth: Vulnerability—the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome—is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy.

Denial: Abuse, Addiction, and a Life Derailed
Nanette Kirsch
Based on a true story of 1 of the 1,000+ victims of the Pennsylvania sexual abuse exposed in the recent Grand Jury Report, this book exposes the systemic abuse over more than two decades across the state’s Roman Catholic dioceses. This award-winning book explores the devastating effects of abuse in one man’s life in an effort to help readers begin to count the cost to the victims as well as generations of loved ones impacted by this scandal.

The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
Bessel van der Kolk M.D. 
Trauma is a fact of life. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. He uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments (from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga) and shares the tremendous power of our relationships to heal and reclaim our lives.

What Happened to You?
Dr. Bruce D. Perry and Oprah Winfrey 
Through deeply personal conversations, Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Bruce Perry explore how what happens to us in early childhood influences the people we become. Winfrey marries the power of storytelling with Dr. Perry’s science and clinical experience to better understand and overcome the effects of trauma.
