Bold Talks is a monthly get-together for trauma survivors (domestic violence, sexual abuse, etc.) and their families, friends, and significant others. We are here to provide support to you (the survivor) AND those that support you. Bold Talks is all about bringing you empowering resources to help you heal, bring clarity, relief, peace, and love as you navigate the healing journey.
Each month we are hosted by a new location, each of whom has their own personal connection to the healing journey that they will share. Bold Talks creates a safe and comforting environment, free from judgment. We will sit together, talk about the topic of the month, its importance, and how it affects us individually. We will then finish with a powerful exercise designed to help you integrate and process what was discussed.
Bold Talks is all about bringing you powerful resources, connecting you with other souls who can empathize with what you may be feeling, are on the path to healing.
Bold Talks was created by Anel Parra and Ariana Sanchez, both of whom are survivors! We are so excited to bring you this powerful series – coming to a city near you!
Next Bold Talk: June 27, 2019, Oxnard, CA
This month we will continue our healing journey by focusing on
- How to provide support for someone who is a trauma survivor while taking care of yourself
- Making grounding stones
Supporting those around us that have been affected by domestic violence can be very challenging, and even draining when we do not have the tools to manage. We want to be there for those around us, but we also need to ensure we are coming from a grounded space and coping ourselves. This month we will be sharing ways we can be supportive of those that are survivors of trauma. Whether you are a loved one or friend, you are welcome to join us in this powerful discussion. We will also be making grounding stones. When we are grounded, we not only make better decisions but we behave in ways that are more authentic and own our power and strength. A grounded person is one who is much more likely to remain calm in the face of chaos – you will leave with a physical reminder that you yourself have created.
