San Diego Sunlight Retreat For Survivors of Rape Interest List
"I just wish there was some place I could go."
Let's stop hiding. Hi, I am Brittany Catton Kirk, and I am a survivor from an attack in 2012. In the months and years after, I tried to manage post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a deep depression while keeping my career and relationship going. Some family wanted me to go to rehab, which is designed for those with substance abuse issues, not survivors of rape with PTSD. I searched for a place I could go, and had zero luck.
This is where the idea for Sunlight Retreats For Survivors of Rape was born.
This retreat will not solve the deep-seated trauma of rape, but my goal is to arm survivors with knowledge, self-care options, and an empowering network of fellow survivors to help them navigate - something that I wished was available for me seven years ago.
You won't have to tell your story a thousand times and you won't be questioned. But you will get support. I know there is a better way to recover than what I went through, and I really wish I had something like this to jumpstart that process. Sunlight Retreats are held in a safe, therapeutic environment where survivors of rape can heal in person with peer support, professional counselors, and offered free tools and services to help them heal.
All guests will be required to sign a liability waiver, and will only pay the at-cost rate it takes to host the 3-4 day retreat.
Information provided will only be used for retreat planning purposes and will not be shared or sold. Retreat venue information will be released only to registered participants for privacy reasons.
Sunlight Retreat volunteers have been averaging 1-2 retreats per year and 2 trauma workshops per year, we hope to increase in the future with additional funding!
