“This was the name of the first personal growth workshops we offered using TSM, starting in 1992. They were designed to provide the utmost in safety and healing, while also providing an opportunity to face trauma directly so that life could grow through spontaneity and creativity. Many women and a few men from around the world who had been sexually abused and had addictions or eating disorders shared their stories with us. From 1992 to 2000 many workshops were held at the Psychodrama Theatre of Protection, a residential setting in Black Earth, Wisconsin (USA), where people demonstrated that they were, in fact, ‘surviving spirits’. Since then we have been offering this workshop several times a year at different sites around the world” (Kate Hudgings).
