Join us for our next powerful episode of Triggers & Spiritual Medicine with host Laura Bonetzky-Joseph and guest with Rachel Grant of Rachel Grant Coaching
TOPIC: Beyond Surviving Sexual Abuse or Sexual Trauma

Rachel shares her story growing up in Oklahoma where she was sexually abused by a family member. She discusses her journey through self-discovery, healing, addressing root issues and moving beyond survivorship that led to the work she does today.

We talk about abuse, turning points, fears, repetitive patterns, healing root issues, how the trauma is the experience, and the gift is fortitude, commitment, resilience, and decision to take case of self and to reclaim our life, creating the space needed to the inner work, creating access to healing, strategies, and tools, how trauma presents differently through medical or health conditions or experience, consent & body safety.

Rachel Grant is the owner and founder of Rachel Grant Coaching and is a Sexual Abuse Recovery Coach and M.A. in Counseling Psychology. She is also the author of Beyond Surviving: The Final Stage in Recovery from Sexual Abuse.

Based on her educational training, study of neuroscience, and lessons learned from her own journey, she has successfully used the Beyond Surviving Program since 2007 to help survivors of childhood sexual abuse who are beyond sick and tired of feeling broken and unfixable break free from the pain of abuse and finally move on with their lives.

Real talk. Let's address the elephant in the room to the growing "sickness" in our society, address root issues and provide sustainable solutions.

We hope by addressing the intersectionality and connect the dots like a web of many of society’s challenges, we can help others understand the trauma infection that impacts all areas of life – addiction, domestic violence, racism, homelessness, sexual abuse, chronic health issues, cancer, environmental issues, climate change and more.

In this NEW collaborative program, we hope by highlighting these infected areas and what they share in common, a new perspective of solutions, healing, and resolutions can be birthed.

Each episode addresses a certain trigger while offering the spiritual medicine with at least 3 tips or actionable steps our listeners can take and implement.
