We all have had experiences in life that have left us feeling broken. Keele Burgin lived through a horrific childhood that left her shattered. Her new memoir, Wholly Unraveled, tells the story of how she escaped her abusive father and the religious cult they were a part of, how she then ran into drug addiction and self destruction, to finally find a path towards healing and self-love at a remote Catholic community. 

We talk about:
-  What she tells young women who need to escape abuse...
-  How she found the courage to disconnect from her family of origin...
-  Why it was so scary to be vulnerable with the man who loved her deeply...
-  What forgiveness means and why she was able to forgive her parents...
-  The horrific response of the priest to whom she told she had been raped, and how that was a massive turning point for her... 
-  What the Catholic church means to her...
-  How we can collectively stem domestic violence... 

Her memoir, Wholly Unraveled, is available now. You can find more details on the Thrive With Morella page: https://www.thrivewithmorella.com/podcast

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
