From 2 Guests Testimonials

From our 1st Guest "The program offered at Victory Garden Sanctuary is such a blessing in my life . As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse who hadn’t had much of a break in my life from trauma and abuse.  I was so excited when I was invited to stay at Victory Garden sanctuary for 3 weeks. Monique is very informed in working with survivors of sexual assault. Victory Garden sanctuary is true to its name, it's like a sanctuary, a safe place to breathe. Not to mention the space itself is absolutely beautiful. I was able to work on my business venture with Monique’s help. I received multiple therapeutic modalities with businesses she partnered with to ensure I had an amazingly healing stay . Each morning I had green juice , coffee , and a healthy breakfast. I was able to network with other business women who also survived sexual assault and it was such an inspiration to be a part of.  When I showed up at Victory Garden Sanctuary I was in a really bad place in my life. When I left I was able to start my life over with a different perspective. I was able to be a better parent, created many friendships and connections. I had multiple business offers and had finish recording a 6 week yoga program I created for survivors of childhood sexual abuse and trauma   I would have not been able to do this without my healing stay at Victory Garden Sanctuary. I highly recommend it for anyone who’s been through trauma and have  been in survivor mode too long but also has healing ambitions in life to be a part of this program. I’m forever grateful."  S.N. 2021
