Hello beautiful humans,
Sending over a heartfelt THANK YOU to you each for backing this beautiful movement.
WE'RE HALF-WAY FUNDED with 9 days to go!!
To be totally honest, running a Kickstarter is an emotional rollercoaster. It reminds me a little bit of riding a bicycle over a mountain (yes, I've done that). Your body gets so exhausted that eventually there's nothing left to do but surrender everything to the Great Mystery, then watch yourself in a sort of other-worldly-way, make it over the top.
I do believe we're going to make it (though one can never be quite sure!).
But for now, today... I just wanted to say thank you to each of you for showing up and showing your support for this movement of whole self reclamation and sexual healing.
You've each touched my heart so very much. So, without further adieu... I've written you each little thank you notes:::

YOU HUMANS ARE SO POWERFUL. Thank you for helping me birth this book into the world. I believe in the medicine it will provide, and I'm so grateful I can produce it thanks to your incredibly generous support.
We have 9 days left to raise just under $20,000. This is 100% doable.
Behind the scenes, I've been talking to many women who will join either the Sex After Trauma Sisterhood or School (so bigger pledge amounts will be coming in over the next few days).
But what I'm wondering is this: would you be willing to send the link for the Kickstarter to 5 friends for whom it might make a great difference? Perhaps a friend who experienced unwanted sexual attention, who struggles with intimacy, who's been through the worst of it? Or maybe just sharing on social media with a heartfelt reason why you care?
If each of you has just 1-3 friends back the Kickstarter at $30 each, we'd raise about $10,000 quite quickly.
I believe in us.
I believe even with all the ugliness in the world, there are epic amounts of light, and we can make miracles with it. We can.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
BIGGEST LOVE & so much GRATITUDE!
Let's finish this baby out strong.
