I am honored to be interviewed by Patricia Singleton, a very active writer and advocate who deals with issues of incest and abuse. Her blog is Spiritual Journey of a Lightworker.
Patricia says, in part,
Thank you Jane for consenting to do this written interview with me so that my readers can learn more about you and your book. I just finished reading your book a few days ago. Your book is an amazing tale of recovery from incest through the use of Inner Child work. Your story shows your courage and stamina in dealing with fragmented memories and frightened inner children. I knew a little bit about your story because of our initial contact on Twitter and on your webpage. I was curious to understand how a person with only fragmented memories, at best, could go about healing from the wounds of incest. I have six years of memories of my own incest abuse.
Why I was interested in reading Ms Rowan's book? Because I also have clues that my incest abuse started before the age of three. I have a very definite clue in that at three years old, I labeled myself an adulteress. I have no memories to go with that clue showing that I might have been sexually abused early in my childhood. I was interested to see if Jane ever got her full memories back or had to work on just the clues. I will soon be starting my own inner child work to see what I can recover. I know that the memories are there being held somewhere in my child's mind and in my body-memories. Like for Jane, my memories of this early incest are held by my younger inner children. Inner child work is often the key to healing from abuse.
