I’m excited to announce that I have had an essay accepted and soon to be published in an anthology for Girl God Books.
My essay is about my journey becoming a mother, which required quite a bit of grappling with my relationship with my mother and trauma from my Native American motherline.
Here is the description of the book:
“Understanding trauma is liberating. Healing trauma is revolutionary. Speaking about trauma is political. Women and their bodies are no longer willing to be silent to or be the secret store of patriarchal abuse, control, and power. Goddess is showing the way, cell-by-cell, emotion-by-emotion, sensation-by-sensation. Healing trauma is a portal for freedom and a gateway to societal and collective change.
Re-Membering with Goddess is an anthology of women’s experiences of trauma—trauma as a result of patriarchy; trauma perpetuated by patriarchy; and how through personal healing of trauma the Goddess is re-membered, re-embodied and resurrected.
As repeating loops of trauma restriction release–in the mind, body and nervous system—Goddess is re-embodied and rises… and the patriarchy falls.”
