On Sovereign Wings
For women seeking to reclaim their power. A podcast to help survivors of sexual trauma connect, tell their stories, and transform.
Feb 12, 2020
This episode introduces Cassandra, or Cassy, who was sexually assault by an older female peer when they both were children. As you listen you'll hear some specifics regarding how Cassandra recovered the traumatic memory of this incident, how she discovered that her lifelong battle with pornography was actually the proverbial tip of the trauma iceberg, and how she has learned to harness her anger as fuel in that continuing battle. Cassandra offers many grounding, empowering, heartbreaking, and energizing perspectives in our twelfth episode of On Sovereign Wings. We are grateful for her obvious and palpable courage. To stay up to date with our event offerings for 2020, check out this post on our website!
