Embodied Healing | Resources

The Breathe Network strives to provide a range of information for survivors of sexual violence and their supporters related to understanding how the holistic healing arts can facilitate healing. We also share a list of trusted emergency resources available both over the phone and online. Our recommended organizations and books below can provide information to support your journey, enhance your knowledge of the innate capacity to heal, or connect you with local options for action or activism. These resources also benefit those who support survivors whether as friends and family, or as healing arts practitioners who want to engage more specifically with the movement to end sexual violence. If you have a recommendation for a book or organization that has been a resource to you in sexual trauma recovery, please visit our Contact Page. We continue to update our this list as we expand our connections with organizations, allies and experts in the fields of sexual violence and trauma resilience.
