Jimmi Toro survived hundreds of episodes of ritualistic sexual abuse and torture. In this episode of Linda's Corner, he helps us identify what trauma really is and how to heal from it.
In his book "HEAL," Jimmi uses his art and stories to describe his journey through the horrors of extreme childhood abuse and the painful yet magical healing process.
He explains the realities of childhood trauma, its physical & mental effects, the suppression of memories, and how they resurface. Finally, he gets into the complex struggle of recovery while bringing hope to those suffering by telling 22 traumatic stories, ranging from shockingly awful to emotionally abusive, and how he released the stored trauma to heal.
He speaks about pushing through your fears, facing your own personal dragons, and conquering the fate that life throws at you. All levels of trauma can be turned into your own personal power. Fight for a cause, and give your life more purpose on the heels of and during your healing. You can learn more about Jimmi and his book "HEAL" on his website www.jimmitoro.com.
