Announcing the launch of a free six month series of workshops called Healing Heart Series: Strength & Freedom From Abuse, that began in July and ends December 29th, 2019. Julie Bishop, founder of the Berkshires based non-profit, Walnut Woods, currently a 501(c)3 under the national organization Angel for Angels, seeks to provide education and healing to those who have experienced the trauma of neglect, manipulation, and abuse in their past relationships.
Berkshire County and surrounding areas of NY and CT record a high rate of partnership violence compared to the rest of the state. Rural areas are especially impacted due to the potential isolation, limited services, and distances one has to travel for support. Our community is strengthened when the people that are living within it feel safe and empowered. Walnut Woods seeks to empower survivors with the mindset, tools, and techniques that nurture their well being and support their individual growth and healing process.
Partnering with area organizations such as The Elizabeth Freeman Center, Center for Justice, Sisters for Peace REACH program, and Construct, Walnut Woods aims to provide programming for a holistic approach to healing that complements and expands on the services provided by these organizations. Walnut Woods boards members Natalia Bystrianyk, Amy Hagerty, Tomma Van Haeften, Suzy Colpitts, and Jackie Perez have either personally experienced relationship abuse or have supported others who have.
Walnut Woods Workshops– The biggest shift for most people who have experienced trauma is to get past the lingering effects and the meanings they have created about themselves, others, and the world. These limiting beliefs are often buried in your subconscious and have a profound effect on your life experience. These workshops are designed to shift outdated beliefs, increase self-awareness, deepen the relationship with your intuition and inner knowing, release the binds of the past, increase your ability to meet life’s challenges head-on, and help you clarify and define your future desires with renewed confidence, passion, and vigor.
