“I’d like to get my own drum and do it, because it really, really…I don’t know what it did, but it did something in me, and I never expected that.” – Rethreaded participant on personal growth experience
New beginnings. Exciting career paths. Gorgeous, quality, and fair trade merchandise. I’m describing, of course, Rethreaded, where we recently led a team-building and personal growth workshop.
If you’re not familiar with Rethreaded in Jacksonville, you should be. Their mission is “to unravel the effects of the sex trade by fighting business with business on a global and local level.” They provide “safe, viable, and dignity-giving work to survivors of the sex trade allowing them to be who they were created to be.”
What we did
Our workshop of about 20 women focused not only on building and reinforcing unity (of which they already had much), but also encouraging personal growth. Some participants remarked that they felt gently nudged to step out of their comfort zones, with the knowledge that their team was there to support them.
Participants took turns standing in the middle of the drum circle, leading and listening. They made up their own rhythms. Then they partnered up to discuss their key takeaways.
Most importantly, they never stopped supporting each other.

“It wasn’t just me personally that made the sounds, it took a group. It took all of us to make this beautiful sound.” – Rethreaded participant on team-building experience
