You are not alone

At Leda Health, and as people who've experienced sexual harm ourselves, we understand everyone has individual needs. With this in mind, we offer both general and specialized groups that use various healing modalities such as sex positivity, art, music, dance, poetry, yoga, drama and more.

After an assault, we often feel that our power has been taken from us. These groups were formed to offer community, broaden our understand of justice, and empower us with the ability to begin our path to healing.

"I was drowning. This group was the hand that pulled me out of the ocean to get a breath of fresh air."

What is a healing circle?

We offer two categories of healing: general and specialized.

Our team plans general groups specifically for women, men, and queer individuals to create spaces where those who have experienced sexual harm can connect twice a week for six weeks with under the facilitation of a recurring sex positive facilitator and rotating facilitators with backgrounds in art, music, dance, poetry, yoga, drama and more.

We also offer smaller specialized groups for people of all identities who want to explore in depth a specific practice such as art, music or yoga healing. This 8-week-long program connects once a week for two hours. Each specialized group is unique; we work with our healing facilitators to develop a program that is tailored to their individual specialities and expertise. 

Groups are made up of 6-8 individuals, often based around similar gender identities or experiences. Each circle is different but all have the same goals: to help people who have experienced sexual harm find community, create a toolkit of coping mechanisms, and ultimately, be able to differentiate between justice and healing.
