ABOUT MOVE TO MOVE BEYOND
Move to Move Beyond, launched in 2000 in partnership with Sanctuary for Families, brings 365 free movement workshops annually to individuals and families who are on journeys to healthier futures. Intimate partner violence survivors have often lacked the power to make choices in their own lives because their impulses have been controlled by another person. A collaborative workshop environment, paired with our four-part program model, helps these survivors with issues of choice, self-expression, trust, and sharing. Learn more →
