3SC is advocating for ISTA to provide financial resources to cover the cost of support groups for survivors. Survivor support groups generally cost between $25 and $50 per attendee, for 90 minutes.
We are also exploring facilitating our own recovery discussion groups. If you are interested in joining our group, or supporting its development, please click below to get involved.
3SC values active community engagement and collective problem solving. We seek to preserve the powerful learnings that can arise from participating in sex-positive and spiritual communities, while also working to reduce the unique risks and harms that often go unchecked within them.
We can’t do this alone. We envision meeting quarterly to experiment with different transformative justice and communication technologies in order to create and spread awareness of best practices throughout our greater community. Please let us know if you are interested in joining us as a participant or organizer.
We made the “Issues with ISTA and Highden Temple Trainings” Facebook group in an attempt to create a safer space for those who had been harmed by these organizations to find strength and support in community. We are immensely grateful for the bravery and compassion that our 600 members contributed to the momentum of this movement. We faced many challenges in the group (more details here), including our bandwidth to ensure ongoing moderation. We are currently reconceptualizing the future of the group and the possibility of a new type of group. We would love your support in doing so.
