Tonight's special guest is Nancy Levine from San Francisco, a survivor of childhood trauma who's now an activist, advocate. She's a volunteer domestic violence victims advocate and writer, working to change the culture of silence. Nancy is and the author of the best selling four-book "The Tao of Pug" series of books. These books are all about acting with conscience, doing the right thing. "My father had a severe psychotic break when I was 13," she says. "His behavior did include sexual molestation of me. I am part of the crowd emerging from the shadows to reveal and reclaim my history so that we may collectively heal." That's partly what's spurred her into action. Nancy recently wrote an article exposing Whole Foods Market's link to alleged child sex abuser, former rabbi Marc Gafni. It's one of a series at EpicTimes.com connecting the Whole Foods co-CEO to the cleric. In the article Nancy quotes Jill Tolles from the University of Nevada, who said in her TEDx talk, Finding Courage to Talk About Child Sexual Abuse: "If silence is a predator's best friend, and if shame and denial are the ingredients that help this epidemic to grow, then how can any of us stay silent? Maybe instead of just focusing on how uncomfortable this conversation is, we could focus on how this is an opportunity to have courage." A child abuse survivor who's now an advocate and writer, Jill says of herself, "I am part of the crowd emerging from the shadows to reveal and reclaim my history so that we may collectively heal."
