Stephen (Steve) Charles Hembry nearly drowned in the sea – but it has also sustained and fascinated him.
In this memoir, he shares how he almost followed in the footsteps of his ancestors to make the sea his vocation. While he chose a different path, the sea remains relevant as a metaphor to the mission he chose, which is helping people cope with trauma.
Whether it's within the realm of relationships, emotions, physical disease, injury, or in the spiritual domain, the author highlights how he has overcome or helped others cope with trauma, suffering, and pain.
To carry out his work, he’s relied on clinical hypnosis, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and counseling for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. He’s also administered various forms of pain relief, offered nutritional advice, removed skin lesions, sutured lacerations, and much more.
Join the author as he looks back at his adventures throughout the world and the amazing things he’s seen or done while being Drawn to the Sea.
