    S8 Ep. 6: Tim-I Refuse to Be Silent

    S8 Ep. 6: Tim-I Refuse to Be Silent

    In this episode, Tim shares about his deep journey to finding his voice and refusing to be silent anymore about the childhood sexual abuse he experienced. 
    Along the way, we discuss some of the key factors that prevented him from speaking up both at the time of the abuse and later in life. He shares about the major turning point that finally gave him the courage to seek support, and all the ways he’s been surprised along the way each time he’s shared his story since breaking the silence.

    --
    Tim is a native Californian who has lived and travelled in many locales west of the Rocky Mountains. When not working with high school and college students, you will find him enjoying the outdoors climbing, skiing, surfing and strumming around a campfire. In his youth he suffered through sexual abuse that left him angry, confused and alone inside. Forty-five years passed before he committed to dealing with the effects of the secrets he held from all. He is currently travelling and climbing in the western U. S. on an endless road trip.

    S8 Ep. 5: Chris-Breaking Down My Walls

    We all experience pain and damage along the course of our lives. The focus of this conversation with Beyond Surviving Graduate, Chris, is on the experiences we face in life, whether big or small and how they could trigger our (conscious or subconscious) defensive mechanisms.
    We discuss how you can spot the walls you might have built up in your life and how you can bring them down by self-love, compassion, and empathy.

    In this Beyond Surviving Podcast, I catch up with Anna Holtzman, who graduated from Beyond Surviving in 2016. 
    In her previous career editing reality TV shows, she started to have severe migraines. These increased later on after she left this role and started graduate school. Anna shares with us how her pain points have led to self-discovery.
    We also talk about how, following her work in Beyond Surviving, she was able to go on to help other survivors find relief from chronic pain through expressive writing.

My daughter has just introduced me to your podcast. I am an author of children's books. One of my books is on sexual abuse prevention. I just listened to my first podcast and LOVE it. How I wish I would have discovered this before today. The way that we store pain and trauma in the body and mind is a very powerful thing and something I have been working on and studying. Thank you for these ideas. For our family Yoga and Meditation have really helped. Looking into Trauma yoga today. Thank you so much for this podcast and information. Kimberly
