Comment(s) April 30, 2014

Remembrance and Reclamation through Yoga “Yoga is the direct experience of your original nature.” ~Richard Freeman The records of my recovery always seem to surface in the weeks leading up to my anniversary through body aches, animal dreams, escalated emotion and a simultaneous mix of an anxious mind and the lethargy of sorrow’s memory.

The Physiology of Resilience “Wear your heart on your skin in this life.” ~Sylvia Plath The unanswerable mysteries surrounding my “story” of surviving sexual violence, like many survivors, I imagine, are far too many to count.
