Stripping: My Fight to Find Me will take you into the mind, body, brain, and soul of Dr. Sunita Merriman as she journeys to reclaim her true self. Through the gift of her words, you will hear and feel what happens when a child experiences loss and trauma. How is it that the world appears to be the same scary place to her in adulthood and continues to haunt her? How can she grow up so sound, accomplished, and highly successful on the outside yet be so fragmented on the inside?
Sunita's poems give a no-holds-barred account of a grueling and raw battle that is at times tough to hear. Yet you will be compelled to keep listening until you get to the last poem. The author doesn't only share her fight, but she also recognizes and celebrates the human unconscious that defies suffering and reaches out to be healed and loved. Stripping: My Fight to Find Me translates the language and spirit of the unconscious and is about how the intimate and mysterious relationship between science and spirituality make up the sacred in us all.
