During this daylong workshop for women (led by Shepherd’s therapists), we will form a creative and non-judgmental space for healing through guided mindfulness meditation and the writing and sharing of poetry. This group is offered to women who have been sexually abused in childhood and would find benefit from a day of mindful reflection and sharing. 

Healing from childhood sexual abuse is a journey. We are honored to be a part of your journey and invite you to join us in this healing workshop!
