"After 20 years of doing trauma
work, it still amazes me how survivors of sexual abuse manage to
cup that little flicker of self against the fierce winds of abuse.
The people I've met for the Soaring Project not only kept that flame
alive, they glow. Through a lot of hard work, they've transformed
soul-wrenching pain into wisdom and strength. It's been a privilege
to meet such brave and spirited people. They've helped me turn my
focus from the shadows to the light."
