It is a space for individuals to process harm experienced while a member of a church, a “high-demand” group, or a cult. Participants will support each other through a therapeutic process that includes the sharing of stories, drama therapy and experiential exercises, improvisation techniques, journaling, movement, art and group processing.

6:30-9:00 p.m.

Facilitated by:
Sarah Harkness, MA, LMFT #88566 is a drama therapist and psychotherapist with a private practice in San Mateo. She has worked with people from many different walks of life, and believes in the healing power of sharing stories in a group setting. As a survivor of a “high-demand” group herself, Sarah has experience with those leaving behind religious communities and expressions, as well as with those struggling to still find a spiritual home for themselves within a religious tradition. Holding a space for the diversity within this discernment is part of the uniqueness of this group.
