Break the cycle of violence and take back your life!
Yes, it really is possible to break the cycle of violence and take back your life! Imagine yourself no longer a victim, and more than just a “survivor.” You’re on your way to becoming a “thriver“ and there is a way to get there!
The My Avenging Angel Workshops™ provide the critical “next step” for women who have been abused to permanently break the cycle of violence and reclaim their lives. Based on the idea that “living well is the best revenge,” the workshops allow women to uncover hidden talents, find the focus of their creative potential and transform their lives in positive, productive ways.
The two-day My Avenging Angel Workshops™ were inspired by Maggie’s story, who was killed in 1999 by her ex-boyfriend. Susan, Maggie’s aunt, created the workshops when she came to recognize the power in the moment when a woman leaves an abuser. Since Maggie did not live beyond that moment, Susan vowed to help other women move on after abuse, as Maggie could not.
“My Avenging Angel is guiding me to my best revenge!”
“Susan’s work provides a component for women recovering from crisis that has, until now, been virtually overlooked. After we’re standing on the edge of the new life that we barely dared to imagine, now that we’re savoring an abuse-free environment, cheering ‘I’m free,’ who answers the inevitable next question: ‘And now what?’”
“Susan has helped me to learn how to search within myself to determine what it is that I want out of life and how to set goals to enable me to take the baby steps necessary to reaching these goals without feeling overwhelmed and too frightened to do anything. After such a life-changing event as leaving abuse, you feel so ‘cut loose’ and wonder where to go from there.”
