Abuse Survivor Releases 'Today I See the Sunrise: Daily Meditations for Survivors of Torture and Abuse'
by BWW News Desk - Dec 2, 2016

Julie A. Cipolla, a Brooklyn author, inspirational writer and abuse survivor, releases her first book of daily meditations for survivors, 'Today I See the Sunrise,' based on what she has learned about how to heal from the legacies of torture and abuse. With the Winter holidays approaching, survivors of torture and abuse may feel even more isolated, perhaps from their families of origin where the abuse took place such as victims of domestic or partner abuse or child abuse. This may be a sad time of year for others like service members with PTSD, victims of torture in declared and undeclared wars and forced conscription, victims of sexual abuse and slavery, victims of unjust labor practices and genocide who may feel more alone at a time when the rest of the world is celebrating. These 'wounded survivors' may be interested in reading 'Today I See the Sunrise: Daily Meditations for Survivors of Torture and Abuse,' the new book from Brooklyn author Julie A. Cipolla. The book is based upon her own experiences having survived childhood torture, abuse, neglect and finally abandonment. She has found a way to forgive and has written the book to help the next survivor find courage and meaning in his or her suffering. This book is not about retribution, but about recognizing our individual and collective suffering. Once we become able to cherish and hold sacred our own and each others' broken hearts, we stand to face our perpetrators as Survivors - we learn that we are stronger because of our experiences. And perhaps we also learn to forgive. . . . Julie A. Cipolla enjoys residing in her warm and cozy one-room 'castle' in Park Slope, Brooklyn, in New York City. Contact Information Julie A. Cipolla 718-290-3660 (more...)
