Journey to Wholeness
A 7 week digital course for Survivors of childhood sexual abuse
A Courageous Journey of healing mind, body, heart, & soul.
How often do you ask yourself why you feel the way you do or beat yourself up for not reacting, thinking, feeling, or behaving in the way you “should”?
Have you sometimes wondered if you’re crazy or the only one who thinks, feels, or experiences things in the way you do?
Do you judge yourself for struggling even though things in your life “seem” good?
These are just some of the ways we reinforce the damage done by sexual abuse.
1 in 3 women has been sexually abused. Think about that for a moment... If you are one of them you've likely gone through the majority of your life believing your struggles were just part of who you are or something you would have to continue to live with.
How many times have you said "I'm not effected... it was a long time ago, I forgave, I don't think about, or even I've been to therapy, coaching, or read all sorts of self-help books so I've healed"?
Yet, you still find you struggle with self-worth, shame, relationships, or allowing yourself to be fully seen.
The long term impact of abuse is insidious. It hides in the crevices of our mind, body, and heart.
The impact is reinforced over time when we use coping mechanisms to "deny" the continued impact. Examples of this are above.
I created this course to help you truly understand…to see the truth of why the struggle exists and actionable steps to help you navigate this journey.
Through this deep understanding the doors to healing open, beckoning you to walk through... allowing you to step into the life you deserve... allowing you to experience what it means to be free & whole.
"Sister, open your heart, fling your hopes high and set your dreams aloft. I am here to hold your hand.”
"I thought my therapist of 30 years "got me!" But in a couple hours you have explained through your videos what has taken me almost a lifetime of therapy to learn. And I feel you truly get it and talk about the key points that are so relatable and more importantly helpful!"
Imagine browsing your local bookstore or Amazon perusing the self-help or psychology section looking for something to help you feel better. Something that will help you finally gain the understanding you’ve been searching for to take you to the next level of your healing. Whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been on the journey a while…
Suddenly you come across something you've never seen before. It’s not really a self-help book, a textbook, or even a video training. It’s a new healing tool. A new way to understand, apply, and achieve the healing you deserve.
Journey to Wholeness is a digital course designed to help bring awareness, understanding, self-compassion, & healing.
Think of it as an up-leveled, interactive self-help resource for healing from sexual abuse with live Q&A with the creator. 😉
Journey to Wholeness will help you understand:
~The ways in which we are wounded. It is so much more than the experiences themselves.
~ How the lasting impact of sexual abuse continues to show up in your life. The insidious ways abuse weaves itself into your heart, mind, body, and soul.
~... And honor the courage, resilience, and determination it took for you to get to where you are now. If you're reading this you are much further ahead than you think.
~Why even well meaning, platitudes of "put the past behind you", or "find the blessing or gratitude in the experience", create more struggle and keep you from being able to heal.
~The steps necessary to truly heal and the inspiration and belief in your ability to navigate the journey.
From this place, all the other healing work you do will integrate with more ease as the foundation you've built is far more structurally sound.
"I am so very glad that a friend introduced me to Peggy Oliveira's YouTube videos, which then led me to her Facebook pages and groups, and then this online course. This course made me see and understand things differently, and helped me to change many of my (false) beliefs from childhood...that it was my fault, that the childhood sexual abuse was about me, that I am damaged and unlovable and unworthy of love, and that I will carry this pain to my grave. Peggy's video lessons, journal prompts and mediations were a godsend and I now understand that the childhood sexual abuse was not my fault, was not about me, that I am not responsible, damaged, I am worthy of love and acceptance, and I am enough." ~ Becky
The journey begins October 7th.
At the beginning of each week you will get access to that week's lesson (with the exception of our "integration week" on the 4th week). Each lesson contains a video, meditation, and journal prompts created just for this course. The integration week is to give you space to internalize everything you've learned and experienced to that point.
There will be two live calls over the course of the 7 weeks. Call times to be determined once I have a sense of time zones of participants. All calls will be recorded and audio will be available to listen if you can't make it live.
Week 1 ~ Taking Root
In Taking Root we create (or strengthen) the solid footing to help you navigate your journey. We’ll dive into techniques to keep you grounded and feeling energized in this process together. This practice is both practical and purposeful. You will be able to use these tools in all areas of your life.
Week 2 ~ Strengthening Root
In Strengthening Root we settle in and build (or strengthen) the foundation of understanding the “why”. As humans, we have an innate need to make meaning and understand. This week we’ll be uncovering the mechanisms that lead to long term impact on our beliefs and life-long coping mechanisms.
Week 3 ~ Honoring Your Path
In Honoring Your Path we’ll be connecting the dots. There will be “Aha” moments as you see your struggle (anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, self-sabotage, unhealthy coping, etc) through the lens of someone who is experiencing a normal reaction to the trauma you experienced, not as someone who is damaged or weak. Through this understanding, you open the door to the life waiting on the other side.
Week 4 ~ Honoring The Warrior Within
Honoring the Warrior Within is being able to connect to your innate capacity for growth and healing. You’ll be able to identify and feel the truth of who you are. The woman who has survived an unbearable truth and has the courage to strive for something better. In connecting with this capacity for growth you will more clearly see the healing possible for you.
Week 5 ~ Courageous Growth
In Courageous Growth we’ll build on the connection from the previous week as we explore avenues to help you continue on this path and navigate the steps necessary on this journey. We’ll explore connection, trust, vulnerability, joy, and allowing yourself to dream.
Week 6 ~ Courageous Freedom
In Courageous Freedom we’ll explore specific ways for you to bring it all together to help you get to the other side of healing… to see the clear path to the summit.
