The Messy Middle of Recovery after Trauma
Join us for this conversation with Angie Conn of She Who Dares as we talk through the messy middle part of recovery after surviving trauma, particularly commercial sexual exploitation. The recovery work that we do at Amirah is long-term, working with survivors over several years. Recovery from complex trauma does not happen instantly, sometimes it can take decades or even a lifetime. In between the hilltop milestone experiences, there is the messy middle.

Angie Conn believes in creating sacred spaces so that survivors of sexual trauma can fully thrive. She recently received her 200 R-YT certification and is working on a specialty certification to become a Yoga Therapist aiding others in their journey of healing complex trauma and shifting into post traumatic growth. There is enormous power for survivors of sexual trauma in realizing the strength of our bodies, understanding ourselves deeper, and seeing our own bodies with compassion and care. Our bodies have survived but it is time that they thrive!

Her joyful and resilient spirit captivates her listeners. She ignites a renewed hope that healing and wholeness after complex trauma are possible while providing tools to implement change.

We talk through what this looks like, how to get through it, and how people can support trauma survivors in the messy middle.
