Reading and Audience Dialogue by author Donna Jensen
Donna Jenson's new book, Healing my Life: From Incest to Joy, focuses not on the details of the author's abuse, but the steps she took to build a life of meaning. It's a detailed account of what helped Jensen, how and why she came to learn new tools for introspection, storytelling and growth, and where any person can find them. Jensen doesn't pretend to speak on behalf of all survivors, but she clearly speaks to all survivors. In her reading she helps audiences face the taboo subject of sexual exploitation; creating a safe space where all can stay open to the possibility of healing, for one's self, for people we care about, for whole communities.
