Survivor’s Sanctuary is an invitation to choose healing. This fully self-guided platform invites survivors to browse and engage 36 different healing lessons at their own pace. Lessons are broken down into 3 distinct entry points to healing via the mind, body and an integration of mind and body. Healing lessons are offered in 5-minute, 15-minute, and 25+ minute engagements allowing you to work at your own pace. You can lean in to lessons that you are drawn to or try them all. Lessons can be saved for future use, repeated, and added to your list of healing action steps.

The University of Alberta Sexual Assault Centre (UASAC) provides drop-in crisis intervention support to survivors of sexual violence and their supporters, as well as comprehensive educational workshops for the campus community. We actively work towards creating a campus community free of sexual violence and operate from a feminist, anti-oppressive, intersectional, trauma-informed, and person-centered framework.

Keeping that in mind, it is important for us to recognize our Centre’s ongoing occupation of ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ, or Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton), Treaty 6 territory and the ancestral home of the Papaschase Cree. We understand that our participation in this colonial project complicates our relationship to anti-sexual violence prevention and education work, as the mere existence of our service is dependent on the continued disregard for Indigenous sovereignty. Acknowledging this complicated relationship is only the beginning of our work; we are committed to unpacking and understanding the responsibility we have to each other and to this land.

All services are free of charge and are available to people of all genders, sexualities, and backgrounds. Each person’s individual recovery process will be respected.
