sexual assault recovery resources

If you have experienced sexual assault, you are a hero on a journey … whether you know it yet or not.

My name is Lisa Foster. My Hero’s Journey began decades ago when I confronted my father about sexually abusing me.  As I began to heal from self-hatred, sexual trauma, and self-protection, I noticed something: the shame-based lens of our culture condemned me to a lifetime in the Transformation stage as a “survivor.”  But I was determined to pioneer a path beyond survival, to an abundant, free, fully-expressed life without limits.  I created Parillume so others, like you, could join me.

The name Parillume is derived from para (near or alongside) and illume (to shine). Parillume empowers those who have experienced sexual trauma to continue past the survivor stage and heroically reclaim the treasure of their true selves shining in the world without shame. No matter where you are on your Hero’s Journey, there are transformation resources and a lit path waiting to you. You are not alone, and you are a treasure worth fighting for.

"After the final 'No' there is a 'Yes' on which the world depends." Wallace Stevens
