About the Book

Dusana Michaels shares her personal journey through the recovery from childhood incest. Her journal entries take you from the first inklings that a part of her life was missing to finding hope and inspiration on the step-by-step process of healing from trauma. The rawness and vulnerability of the childhood wounds are transmuted into strength and power as the thoughts and emotions associated with the trauma are faced with tenacity and willingness.

It is an inside perspective of the ups and downs associated with finding trust, learning to love, practicing forgiveness, and listening to the guidance from above without going into graphic details of the abuse. It covers the universal themes of personal growth that human beings encounter on the way to wholeness. Dusana lives her life by taking the lessons presented in life and integrates them into a new way of seeing herself and the world.

Chopping the Onion offers a powerful message for finding your way through the darkest hours to encounter the light and peace once more.
