CREATING A PATH FOR HEALING
Time Of Butterflies represents the power of making changes together worldwide by healing and supporting each other.
WHAT WE DO
We bring awareness to communities in regard to domestic violence, sexual assault, and emotional abuse.
We curate workshops that focus on educating, and providing resources.
We provide support and knowledge to survivors, and families in order to heal.
Survivors of abuse are often left in the dark, and it is difficult for them to share their stories, heal and reach their full potential to be self-sufficient. Our workshops focus on accomplishing one main goal; that individuals from these communities can strengthen their adaptive and life skills, which has been affected by their trauma.
We are supporting survivors in creating a path for healing.
OUR WORKSHOPS WILL FOCUS ON:
After experiencing abuse an individual's self-esteem is truly impacted in a detrimental way. We are empowering and uplifting those individuals through our workshops by using the expressive arts, allowing these individuals to reconnect and love themselves.
With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain confidence through skill building. Our workshops will focus on life skills such as, opening a bank account, applying for housing, and learning about nutrition, and much more.
It's important to acknowledge, process and manage emotions in order to be able to self-regulate. Individuals who have experienced abuse often find themselves in fight-or-flight mode, and self-regulation can be difficult. We are helping individuals understand emotions, and doing this by educating them on their autonomic nervous system, while integrating the expressive arts.
Our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact by teaching individuals strategies on how to maintain their safety. Our workshops focus on safe commute and how to safely transition out of an abusive relationship.
