A preemie baby born to a schizophrenic and violently alcoholic mother who abandons her to survive on her own in the jungle of physical, emotional and sexual abuse among many foster homes. She survives through other worldly thoughts and dream experiences from an early age until she finds a loving family that adopts her at age sixteen.
However, as a young woman overwhelmed with parenting two young children, it becomes clear that she is on the precipice of a psychospiritual collapse. Her adoptive family introduces her to a therapist whose focus is on ‘lovingly divorcing’ oneself from the biological mother and father with compassionate forgiveness. Bob Hoffman’s processes guide her through the tunnel of painful trauma wherein she emerges from the dark pool of hate, anger and fear into the light as the lotus.
