Triggers & Spiritual Medicine Episode #6: Beyond Surviving Sexual Abuse
Join us for our next powerful episode of Triggers & Spiritual Medicine. Episode 6 is with Rachel Grant of Rachel Grant Coaching
TOPIC: Beyond Surviving Sexual Abuse or Sexual Trauma
In this episode, we talk about life beyond just surviving sexual abuse in this very organic conversation about our experiences surviving sexual assault as young girls.
Rachel shares her story growing up in Oklahoma where she was sexually abused by a family member. She discusses her journey through self-discovery, addressing root issues, healing, and moving beyond survivorship that led to the work she does today.
We talk about
- turning points,
- 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
- understanding neurotrauma
- creating access to healing, strategies, and tools
- how trauma presents differently through medical or health conditions or experience.
- consent & body safety.

We hope by highlighting these infected areas and what they share in common, a new perspective of solutions, healing, and resolutions can be birthed.
This is a NEW collaborative program with industry experts, survivors, who have figured out the “how” to heal the effects from their trauma breaking FREE from the chains that bound them in ways society said was not possible.
We’ll feature a different guest w/ each episode sharing experiences & solutions w/ the greatest epidemic of our times world – an epidemic of unrecognized unhealed unresolved trauma that is placing misguided burdens on our society, increasing rates of chronic illness, mental illness, & addictions & stressing an already taxed broken healthcare system ill-equipped to treat root issues because it is NOT profitable.
