How To Grow From Darkness
Have you experienced personal trauma in your life? And if so, what are the ‘positives’ you’ve taken from that experience? I realize that seems like a strange question, but after our conversation with Amanda Blackwood, you’ll clearly understand why this interview is so important. Amanda is a survivor of human trafficking. The experience was life-changing…but not only for her…because now she’s a trauma recovery mentor, working with others who have been through trauma, themselves. She’s the author of Growth From Darkness. She’s also a professional artist and an accomplished public speaker and podcaster on the topic of trauma recovery.
