About the Book
Trauma can and does destroy connection to life. Our sense of identity, worth, control, reality and our foundational roles in life can be completely shattered. We can feel lost and become consumed by the suffering we have experienced.
This book is an invitation for you to allow the time to deeply connect through your senses with the animals, the plants, the landscapes and the words. You can then know, even for a just moment, that you are more than your experience of trauma, pain and loss.
The contributors (photographers and author) to this book do not receive any profit from the printing of this book. A free- PDF will be made available to download in the near future.
