This workbook was created for individuals or groups of young adults recovering from traumatic experiences as a tool to aid the healing process by encouraging conversations through the utilization of Ana's battle through the darkness.

This book allows readers to use symbols and metaphors to work through their own experiences and answering thought provoking questions found in the back of the book.


I was inspired to write this book after a traumatic rape. To work my way through through numbness, depression, confusion and PTSD, I turned to dancing and writing and eventually started a blog called The Opened Book. The interactions and conversations with the readers inspired me to write a short story which eventually turned into this workbook.

The creation of this book has lead me to my passion of helping others who have been wounded with unseen scars. The goal of this book is to inspire and facilitate conversations that will encourage healing and journey through the healing process.
