June 9, 2016 - PRLog -- Gender Trauma is a phrase that came to Gabriel Orion Marie as she thought about how to communicate her personal experience of deep pain and confusion that resulted from being sexually and emotionally tortured and brainwashed regarding her own body and gender. This book is about her healing from that specific trauma and the many attending issues around her sense of self that resulted from those traumas.
Since she published her trilogy several years ago, she has come even further along the road of healing, and has moved into a deeper, more reflective perspective on the whole gender issue within herself. The lens she is looking through now is not so much of an explicit, biographical, recounting of the abuse that she experienced. Rather, it is a progressive, retrospective understanding of how devastating, disabling, and painful Gender Trauma was for her, and how the gaping wounds that came from it affected every area of her life. Now, she also has an internal overview of how these wounds gradually healed through the inner work that she has done.
