COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Oct. 2, 2020 - PRLog -- Joyce, founder of the non-profit group, Finding Our Voices, shares her captivating narrative that unfolds like a mystery, exposing the cultural myth that denial and silence are effective responses to the abuse inflicted on 1 in 5 children. When life is dramatically interrupted by debilitating physical symptoms, she is forced to begin a journey in which she confronts the unhealed and forgotten childhood sexual abuse she experienced growing up. Authenticity rings as Beyond Aftershocks traces her journey from breakdown to breakthroughs via flashbacks, therapies, and healing art to experience post traumatic growth. It witnesses a remarkable woman overcoming the bitterness of betrayal and the sting of shame to reclaim her true self.  This story is not about the abuse but rather the author's triumph over adversity which empowers other survivors with gentle nudges to reflect on their experience, culminating in health, vitality, peace, and service to others.

MavaJoyce resides in Colorado Springs. In 2009, she founded Finding Our Voices, a nonprofit with the mission to empower adult survivors of sexual assault through post traumatic GROWTH. In retirement Joyce spends her time speaking, mentoring, and recovering from procrastination. She delights in container gardening, creating art, listening to oldies, and steaming hot lattes in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. She is an ardent fan of Ted Talks, meditation, and fresh flowers.
