My avenging angel workshops
The critical next step for women who have been abused to permanently break the cycle of violence and reclaim their lives
create your thriver future
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.
