“Slippers would break, rods would break, my skin would break and bleed, my clothes would stain, but my spirit remain untouched.”
Throughout her childhood, Priya Saklani had only one friend ‘FEAR,’ which was constant. She can’t recollect the time when she felt needed. She completely lacked the knowledge or understanding of what human affection meant because the only reason why people touched her was to abuse her. Longing for affection, Priya felt nothing more than an object who was being passed on from one man to another. There was more to her than her body.
In what might seem dark for some readers initially, The Wounded Healer depicts the undying strength and courage of a spirit who rose from the ashes like a phoenix and became a warrior from a victim. The pain had a lot to teach her as she channelized that suffering as a stepping stone to a higher state of consciousness, treating her scars like trophies. Priya turned her wounds to wisdom, healing herself and today she is using that wisdom to help others heal.
The Wounded Healer - A memoir of Priya Saklani, details a compelling and ferocious insight into a mind and life of a victim of complex trauma, demonstrating just how childhood affects every aspect of your life.
