In February 2020, Survivor Strong began hosting self-care circles for survivors and allies in the greater Lansing area. At these bi-weekly healing + self-care circles, Survivor Strong team members lead activities based in self-expression, self-esteem, self-compassion, and self-love. –Full of soft seating, calm music, crafts, and good vibes, our HART (Healing and Response Time) room is the perfect location for survivors of sexual assault to form community and heal together, while making feel good crafts that will aid in future self care.
This year, Survivor Strong will host more talk-based support circles in our HART room. Our advocate has already been providing direct advocacy services to survivors of sexual + domestic violence, and will soon be providing the same services in a group setting. We can’t wait to provide the safe space we know so many survivors are longing for.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Survivor Strong has migrated existing services to a private, digital community. If you are interested in connecting to our online community, please email email@example.com to join.
In 2020, Survivor Strong will host one-on-one trauma informed yoga and meditation in our HART room.
In partnership with The Firecracker Foundation, we will also host group yoga and meditation in their welcoming, safe, soulful space.
Every other week, Survivor Strong shares their favorite recipes.
These recipes are be primarily plant-based, sometimes with meat options.
Recipes are also mindful of inflammatory foods for the many survivors that have auto-immune diseases or other chronic health conditions triggered by trauma.
