Join Our Network
Welcome to The Breathe Network!
Thank you for considering joining our community of practitioners who are dedicated to supporting holistic healing for survivors of sexual violence. Please read below to learn more about how The Breathe Network functions – our application process, membership fees and the way in which we amplify our members’ work to reach survivors, rape crisis centers, social services agencies, academic institutions and more. We are thrilled that you would like to align your practice our collective of healers.
Why Should I/My Organization Join The Breathe Network?
The Breathe Network is a resource for survivors of sexual trauma as well as local, state and national anti-sexual assault coalitions seeking healing resources to support individuals in addressing and healing the nuanced physical, psychological and spiritual impacts of sexual trauma. Survivors, and those who serve them, search our website for healers in their community and then initiate contact with the service provider to arrange an appointment, inquire for more information about the treatment and address other questions or concerns. Many survivors and advocacy organizations contact us directly with an inquiry for referrals to healers.
There is no referral fee when a survivor elects to work with a practitioner from our website. There is a one-time joining fee of $150 for individuals/$300 for organizations, as well as an annual membership fee of $100 for individuals/$150 for organizations. The joining fee and annual membership fee are not due until your application has been processed and you are invited to join. Please note that sliding-scale options and payment plans are available upon request and we will do our best to accommodate your budget. No one will be turned away from joining our network due to financial barriers. We hope that one impact of aligning your practice with our organization would be that the referrals bolster your capacity to thrive.
One of the ways we invest into our member community is through the design, facilitation and participation within our online courses for survivors, for healers and for fellow members. We look to contract teaching and speaking opportunities with our members to ensure that their wisdom, perspective and training expertise is shared more and more broadly. We also make our trainings available to our members at a deeply discounted and sliding-scale rate to ensure their access to new learning and more community.
We promote The Breathe Network through marketing, interviews, events, online courses and trainings, and our extensive Breathe Blog which explores the nuances of sexual violence and holistic healing. We utilize our various social media platforms, expand awareness of our services via partnerships with universities and rape crisis centers, as well we present at local and national conferences addressing sexual violence and trauma resilience. In addition, at a community-based level, we reach out to local health and wellness organizations to invite their collaboration and offer trainings designed to meet the unique needs of their community. We are intentional in building our network of practitioners and partner organizations in a sustainable and thoughtful way that upholds quality of services, accessibility and alignment with our mission.
Our thorough application process allows us to ensure that we offer reputable healing modalities with highly trained practitioners who have an established practice working with survivors of sexual violence and/or trauma. If our team does not feel that your application meets our minimum requirements at this time, we will do our best to direct you towards education and training opportunities that will better prepare you for joining our organization in the future. We utilize your application responses to develop your practitioner/organization page which gives individuals searching our website a unique and important opportunity to learn about a diverse range of holistic healing techniques and to gain a clear sense of the practitioners’ training and experience, their approach to trauma-informed care, as well as their overall philosophy on healing and resilience.
Our hope is that The Breathe Network serves as a catalyst to promote options for integrated healing for sexual violence survivors at any stage in their healing process. It is never too late. As well, we believe our network provides a powerful opportunity for you as a healer to connect with survivors who may (re)discover the gift of their own embodiment through their work with you and to connect you with a community of fellow healers. We invite you to share information about The Breathe Network with your peers, friends and experienced colleagues who may be seeking to expand their clientele, as well as with survivors who are exploring new resources for healing – and please, do not hesitate to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in joining The Breathe Network!
