“Lisa Foster was a speaker for Sonoma State University’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April 2017, delivering a workshop and a presentation about the Hero’s Journey for Overcomers of Sexual Violation. Ms. Foster is an engaging, powerful, and deeply impactful speaker. She has a unique gift: the ability to guide the audience through challenging terrain with sensitivity, humor, and passion to a new perspective. Not only was I, and the audience, deeply moved by her presentation, but we left with a clarity of vision and concrete tools for approaching this sensitive topic in a new light – moving, as she says, ‘from shame and silence to heroism and fierce hope.’ I encourage you to invite Ms. Foster to share her gift with you.” – Dr. William Silver, Dean of the School of Business and Economics, Sonoma State University
“Wow! Folks were leaning in to every word, and the number of people that stayed after to connect speaks volumes to the value they got from your talk. Your presence and content were exactly what will continue to make this event a success. Grateful to you!” – Kyle Matthews, Chief Connecting Officer, Crankset Group
“Whatever Lisa Foster does, she does with passion – and her presentations are no exception. She is a dynamic speaker with creative and transformational ideas. She connected with and inspired the audience at my event and had everyone’s wheels turning on how the information could impact their lives. People were left craving more!” – Amanda Halliday, Founder, Ways to Optimize

Thriving After Sexual Violation

THE HERO’S JOURNEY
OF SEXUAL VIOLATION™
5 to Thrive
Parillume is committed not only to helping individuals thrive again, but to transforming the world. But the path to social change begins with personal change. This presentation leads us from the personal to the social, through five stages, right there at your fingertips:
Personal Transformation: You are not defined by your past, or by the crimes committed against you.
Personal Justice: You shed the burden of self-judgment and point the finger of blame where it belongs.
Social Transformation: You step out of your comfort zone and stand against the status quo of shame and silence to create social change.
Social Justice: You work to make positive change a formal bond, deeply rooted in the laws and culture of our society.
Prevention Pledge: You commit to changing the future: to support each other, break cages, teach well, vote wisely, stand up and speak out for justice in service of the next generation.
See, Feel, Speak, Heal
Most of us know someone who has been violated – but we may not know how to respond. Our society often views sexual violation through a shame-based lens that creates obstacles to prevention and recovery. This interactive seminar educates how to prevent and address sexual violation by applying four tools:
See: How to recognize signs of grooming and sexual violation.
Feel: How to find and use your internal compass.
Speak: How to cultivate safe, shame- and blame-free conversations.
Heal: Resources for responding to, and recovering from, sexual violation.
