Still, But Not Silent
If you are a survivor of domestic violence or partner abuse, you know all too well that the struggles don’t necessarily end when you leave the person who abused you. The realities of what has been lost, learned, and endured take time to digest. There are challenges to face, emotions to sift through, and a new life to build.
Still, But Not Silent provides a creative outlet for exploring one’s experience with domestic violence. The journal prompts invite reflection on your experience with abuse, and your goals and dreams for your life moving forward. The mandalas and abstract patterns offer a means to let the mind and senses flow with colors, creative discovery, and self-acceptance.
Still, But Not Silent is a quiet, supportive, portable ally for healing wounds, recognizing, owning and building your strength, finding inner stillness and freeing your voice.
Foreword by: Ann Bayly-Bruneel
“Escaping from domestic violence is but the beginning of what can be a long recovery process. Chloé McFeters’ new book, Still, But Not Silent, is designed to support and guide that journey. It provides insightful and informed direction for healing, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Victims of domestic violence literally have to remake their lives. This coloring book journal is an important tool, a friend on that road to recovery.”
