Please join us for our next sexual violence healing circle that is centered on body trauma and owning our bodies after experiencing sexual violence.

For many of us who have experienced sexual violence, it can be hard to feel like our bodies are our own after they have been violated. Even though society expects us to "move on,” the psychology of body trauma tells us that our bodies remember, and that we deserve to honor our feelings and our triggers.

In this session, we will explore how many of us have held trauma in our bodies, how Allah swt gave our bodies to us as a trust (amana) and will end with trauma-sensitive yoga based in dhikr (remembrance of Allah). This event is for survivors and for those who know and/or support survivors in their lives.

Please note: This event is for Muslim women only. If you are an ally and want to support our work, please donate here.
