Feel: Healing the Spiritual Wound of Sexual Trauma


 Feel: Healing the Spiritual Wound of Trauma at Spirituality and Health Magazine 

 You can now read a short excerpt from my new book Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault (Mango Media) at Spirituality and Health Magazine. It’s about the second step in my process to recovery, which is called Feel (step one is Survive!). This piece is all about the spiritual wound of trauma and how the only way to go in and start that healing process is through the body, the place where the trauma is generally held, even if we’ve done lots of work to think about it and process it mentally.
Have a read! And then order my book here: https://amzn.to/2UTKAO5 and don’t forget to write me a 5-star review if you like it! It will go a long way toward helping other people find my book as well.

Reclaiming Desire After Sexual Assault on the Mental Illness Happy Hour Podcast


Julie on the Mental Illness Happy Hour Podcast

It was such a privilege to get to be interviewed by Paul Gilmartin, a survivor I really admire whose fantastic podcast The Mental Illness Happy Hour opens up really real, honest conversations about all our mental illness struggles. We had a VERY intimate conversation about sexuality, sexual healing, trauma, masturbation meditation, and all sorts of other stuff. This conversation involves topics around sexual trauma including some of my experiences as a young person, so be aware of that.
