Survivors from across the globe are increasingly using their own stories to challenge legal and social responses to gender-based violence. #MeToo is just one example of this trend. In this session participants will learn about a growing body of research that establishes links between the power of telling stories and healing from trauma – what has been called “post traumatic growth”.

A Labyrinth Walk

The labyrinth is one of the oldest contemplative and transformational tools. It combines the imagery of the circle and spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. It provides a transformative journey to one’s own center and back out to the world. The labyrinth is a mirror of our grief journey, where the way in is the way out.

This free workshop will include time to reflect on your grief, to experience the labyrinth path, and to discuss your experience with other participants.
