Joyful Inspiration held an opening event, “Day of Empowerment”, honoring women escaping domestic violence. We fed their body, soul and spirit, with each of them walking away with a renewed sense of hope.
The activities included yoga, massage, delicious food, self-defense, meditation, and building visions. Tucked away from the world, our ladies could get away from their daily stresses and connect and breath. As one said, “I got more out of that one day than I have six months of therapy.”.
Our vision for the first 2-3 years is to provide retreats for women who are victims of domestic violence. The goal is to teach these women how to find success and inner happiness. All services are provided by the community on a volunteer basis.
The organization will continue to support these survivors by having practitioners donate services once the retreat is over. Our goal is to be the safety net for these ladies when unexpected hardships happen. Things like car repair, help for doctor’s appointments, school supplies.
We would like to be able to help them with the things that can catch them and their budget by surprise. The first 6 months to a year after leaving an abusive relationship is the hardest for women to learn how to be self-sufficient and learn to budget and thrive.
Planned retreat activities include massage, self-defense, yoga and other educational classes. Vision board sessions are also planned during the retreat. Volunteers and practitioners will attend the activities along with the sponsored women.
Our long-term vision is to have a residential property to house the survivors along with therapy, spiritual enrichment, life skills training, and off-site education opportunities will be available so that the residents are better equipped to lead successful lives.
