Ways of Renewal: A Guidebook for Women – Natural Methods of Clearing Sexual Trauma, Balancing the Emotions and Resurrecting the Spirit

Newly published book for survivors, written by a licensed acupuncturist approaches rape trauma from a fresh perspective – that of a treatable injury. Just as a broken arm will heal correctly if the bones are set and the arm is immobilized for a period, the trauma suffered by rape or sexual assault survivors also requires intervention, but of a different nature. This concise book leads the reader to a basic understanding of the ancient art of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, offering specific acupuncture point prescriptions to use specifically selected for sexual trauma, with detailed explanations. The book also describes other related healing modalities which are effective for treating this “invisible injury”.  

Life as a survivor, is a step beyond life as a victim, but life as a thriver is even more fulfilling.

Rape Trauma and Spirit Attachment

An acupuncturist talks about spirit attachment from rape trauma. How to diagnose it and how to clear it.  Perpetrators generally have failed in the daily task of spiritual housekeeping (otherwise they wouldn’t be perpetrators), and because of this, they can take on spirit attachments, or cultivate a corrupt spirit. This dark spiritual aspect of the perpetrator can be passed onto the victim through the traumatic violation.  How do we identify spirit attachment and how do we clear it.

The mission of the Powerful Voices Project is to educate, empower, and enhance the conversation around sexual assault and its survivors. We create short films illuminating the strength and resiliency that of sexual assault survivors.

The Project is about…

  • Empowering survivors who focus on their personal stories.
  • Preventing sexual abuse by raising awareness and for the first time, revealing the steps to recovery and resiliency.
  • Being grounded in principles of public health and best practices.
  • Our dedication to diversity and inclusiveness regarding gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, age, ethnicity, religion, geography, and class.

Stephanie Hamilton-Oravetz experienced very long-term abuse as a child at the hands of her psychiatrist father. As an adult, she has devoted her career to psychology and supporting vulnerable populations through their own trauma, all the while, keeping her own story deeply buried.

In 2014, realizing that she had a lifetime of emotional distance between herself and those she loves most, Stephanie has set out to release her story and express herself as a means to recovery, and her own resiliency. Stephanie is an accomplished photographer and a powerful voice in this movement.

Watch how photography, community, and her ability to speak out has impacted Stephanie’s journey.
