Broken to Beautifully Whole Workshop
Why be broken when you can become silver or gold?
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquered silver or gold. The philosophy behind the art is that when an item is broken, it can be repaired to become stronger and more beautifully whole. The cracks and the scars from the brokenness are meant to be highlighted, not hidden.
In this workshop, we take a deep dive into adapting the six attributes in Broken to Beautifully Whole as habits to propel healing and growth while ultimately leading you to your purpose, confidence, and fulfillment. This is a powerful workshop with learning how to build healthy attributes as part of your everyday life, make a beautiful piece of Kintsugi, and find empowerment to more self-worth, confidence, and fulfillment. We’ll end with learning to embrace our scars, rather than hiding or disguising them. Invite a friend and join us in the next workshop.

Cost of Broken to Beautifully Whole Workshop with learning the value of attributes and supplies to create your own personally designed piece of Kintsugi Art – $60 

Stewards of Children Workshop
How do we empower our children and reduce their vulnerabilities from sexual abuse?
The sexual abuse statistics for children are very uncomfortable, yet they are our reality. 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls will be sexually abused in some form before their 18th birthday. The average age for a child to be abused is 9. We, as a society, have the ability to defeat these statistics by teaching our children what body boundaries are and what consent truly means. 
As a Darkness to Light Facilitator, I share the “5 Steps to Protecting Our Children” to learn the facts, minimize opportunity, create the conversation, recognize the signs, and react responsibly and supportively. We can do this as a community, however it takes action. Begin the action by signing up your group or organization for the workshop. Stewards of Children qualifies for CEU hours. 
The cost of empowering our children and protecting them from child sexual abuse – priceless
The cost of the Stewards of Children Workshop – $35 per person


“Cathy shared her empowering message of hope and healing with

 our Women’s Leadership Network and Delaware County Against Human Trafficking Coalition. Her presentation was engaging, provoking, and very insightful. I am so grateful Cathy steps forward with courage to share her

 story with the intent of helping others heal from their own hurts, trauma, or brokenness,”

“Cathy is a fierce advocate to speak up against childhood sexual abuse

by sharing her story. She embodies what it means to empower the seemingly powerless. If you or anyone ever gets a chance to hear her message, I promise you will not be disappointed. She’s changing lives and increasing awareness

about this unspeakable abuse that so many children suffer.”
