  • Childhood abuse survivor and abuse expert, Kelly Flook, helps you heal

    in Spirituality

    I did everything society said to be happy. I got the degrees: BA, a Montessori degree, and an MA. I married the “right” men who could “give me respect and boost my confidence.” First an attorney. Had one daughter. The marriage ended after seven years because of his affairs. Eight years later, my second husband was a cardiologist from Virginia. We had a bi-coastal, whirlwind coke-induced love affair for eighteen months. The marriage lasted six months. I did things I thought might help society. I sent women to London for abortions before Roe v. Wade. I was active in the peace movement to stop the Vietnam War. I started NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) with my first husband. I had the right jobs: I wrote and produced for PBS. I won numerous awards. I wrote screenplays to shine the light on inequities. None of this alleviated my pain, shame and suffering from the childhood beatings and sexual abuse that led to my self-abuse. My healing journey began with Shhhh!

    I have lived in Venice Beach, CA., just steps to the sand, for eighteen years. I’m a grandmother of two loving, beautiful, half Chinese boys. I just had a portion of a short story published in a new LA literary journal, FRE&D.  Currently, I’m working on my next book, “Mother NORML”.  For those who wish to clean out their pain and shame please join me in my weekly webinar, Skype to Write.  I have been on a spiritual journey.  I have become the me I came here to be!

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1196

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Rachel Grant from San Francisco, a returning NAASCA family member, counselor and Sexual Abuse and Trauma Recovery Coach at Rachel Grant Coaching. Abused as a child by her grandfather in Oklahoma, Rachel now holds an M.A. in Counseling Psychology. She provides a compassionate and challenging approach for her clients while using coaching as opposed to therapeutic models to help survivors of childhood sexual abuse let go of the pain of abuse and finally feel normal. As Rachel says, "What you think, you create!" She brings to the table a passionate belief that her clients do not have to remain trapped or confronted daily by the thoughts or behaviors that result from abuse. For her, how we are relating to others is crucial to improving the overall quality of our lives. Her program, Beyond Surviving, has been specifically designed to change the way we think about and heal from abuse. Rachel writes, "The Beyond Surviving program is based on what I have learned through my own journey of recovery from sexual abuse, my study of neuroscience, and my training in counseling psychology. I have given much thought to the structure and content of the program so that my clients can reach the recovery goals they set in a way that is approachable and straightforward." She goes on to explain, "We use my guidebook, Beyond Surviving: The Final Stage in Recovery from Sexual Abuse as the roadmap for our work. Each month, we cover a few of the lessons from the guidebook and I bring in additional reflections and exercises for each session." "Ultimately," she points out, "you are in the driver's seat and we prioritize our work based on your needs."

    Dream Catchers - Overcoming Heartache and Sadness - Les Paul

    Often no matter how well intended a person who did their very best to tell the truth and do the right thing they get kicked in the teeth. A person with a brain injury or disability can be shunned upon, looked down on, and treated very badly by their Friends and Family members and the community just for doing the right thing. That’s just a matter of fact!
