Join us for honest conversations whether you are turned on or can’t find the switch. Get questions answered about how to take baby steps towards having connected sex. This podcast is for post-trauma thrivers and their loved ones to understand how all forms of trauma affect sexual expression.

On today’s episode, we welcome Laura Davis bestselling author of “The Courage To Heal,” her seminal book about healing from sexual trauma. She waxes philosophical on a variety of topics, including her new memoir, “The Burning Light Of Two Stars,” (which I cannot recommend enough). We talk about the relationship between reader and author, how life experience changes our perception of the past, and having a parent who refuses your reality. We end with an exercise on forgiveness.
