Sexual assault is physically, emotionally, and spiritually damaging. Many women who suffer from sexual assault feel powerless and voiceless. Their fears and anxieties often take over and prevent them from embracing the life they were meant to live.
As a speaker, Elizabeth helps individuals conquer the fears and limitations that hold them back. She shows how to access their highest potential by understanding their fear and exploring the art of forgiveness. With her help, audience members can achieve peace, joy, incite passion, and rewrite their life stories.
Healing from sexual assault starts with taking back the power that was stripped from you. This means looking at your body in a new way, loving yourself, and seeing your physical self as a sacred temple once more. Elizabeth Selden talks with audiences about how they can move from victimhood through survivor and into conqueror. She helps audience members turn trials into triumph.
Women often struggle to be comfortable with their genuine personal strengths. Instructed to abandon qualities perceived as weak, many women integrate harsher, disingenuous traits that ultimately dis-empower them. Elizabeth brings audiences back to the divine grace carried by the goddess. She supports them in rediscovering their true strengths and how to integrate them into a modern world.
Young girls are trained to accept certain physical, mental, emotional and sexual violations as “normal.” Elizabeth speaks to young audiences about how to reject this old paradigm and instead embrace a new and healthy perspective of themselves and the relationships they will cultivate.
“Elizabeth is a dynamic and inspirational public speaker. I’ve been to many of her workshops and events and havealways come away with renewed hope and inspiration. I am awed at her passion and tremendous knowledge ofsubject matter.” – J.Y.
