Aloha Lovely! 

I'm Ashleigh Rae the creator and host of the podcast Recovery (previously known as #BlissedOut) I live in the Dandenong Ranges of Victoria with my fiancee, in a tiny little flat. I love coffee, podcasts, audiobooks, writing, and comedy!

Thanks for stopping by and checking this out :)  

ABOUT THE POD
RECOVERY began as a podcast that explored Meditation and Mindfulness (originally named 3BlissedOut), and while mindfulness remains part of the pod, the main focus has seriously shifted thanks to a defining moment in my own life where I experienced the emergence of memories of sexual trauma and chose to report it to law enforcement, and has been re-branded as Recovery to reflect the change in direction.

This podcast is very close to my heart, and my vision for this podcast is to:
1. Reach as many women as possible to end their isolation
2. Encourage connection and healing 
3. End the taboos around sexual trauma 
4. Encourage women to at the least, discuss their legal options with law enforcement
5. Bring survivors and practitioners together 
6. Share the real, nitty-gritty aspects we avoid talking openly about like...sex and love after a rape, employment, mental health and all the stuff that makes being a survivor f*cking hard. 

I believe that when we speak about the unspeakable, we take away the fear and the taboo and instead find a connection. Sexual trauma is a complex, intricate issue that extends way beyond the physical act - this podcast hopes to debunk the bullshit and be real about life post-trauma. 

WHAT YOUR SUPPORT MEANS FOR THE POD
Podcasts are awesome, mostly because they're free to consume - but they are not free to create. There is a cost involved, and while at this point its minimal dollars it does take time, planning, prep - there is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes on here to make just one episode. So, here are the goals for the podcast:

$50 per month - this means basic operating costs are covered for the podcast (2 episodes per month are covered at this amount) 

$150 per month - this means I can hire an editor to streamline the podcasts and increase the number of episodes released to weekly. 

$300 per month - Not only does this mean higher quality episodes, more often, it also means that I have the ability to invest in better equipment and processes to support the podcast!

$500 per month - Everything before is covered, and we now have the ability to pop the money aside for bigger expenses like marketing to help our message spread far and wide. 

Thank you for being a patron of this message - when we come together and invest in things like this, it makes it easier for the next woman to come forward and tell her story and the flow on effect is HUGE. It means her soul can begin to really heal, she can engage in therapies that help her become a productive, happy person again as she re-enters life <3
