Hidden Water is a restorative justice approach to breaking the cycle of childhood sexual abuse and transforming harm into shared healing. They work with individuals and families in restorative Healing Circles, with the mission to transform life after abuse from an isolating experience of quiet shame into one marked by profound strength, dignity, and collective healing. Hidden Water also aims to help pave new ways to engage in transformational healing of all kinds of harm, not only child sexual abuse.
Their model is based on the indigenous practice of Peacemaking Circles, and founded on the belief that childhood sexual abuse harms not only the person directly impacted, but harms the entire web of connected relationships. Hidden Water offers an opportunity for each person affected to do the work they need in a Healing Circle, with others who share a similar experience, and in time, support the repair and rebalancing of the system of relationships that have been impacted.
