I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and an advocate for sexual abuse survivors, their families and the people who work with them. I hope my book 'Walking with Aletheia: a survivor's memoir' will be of help to anyone who has experienced trauma and their support communities. I was finally free to share my personal healing process after contributing to the Emmy-nominated Netflix documentary series The Keepers, made by Ryan White and Jessica Hargrave. In addition to my writing and advocacy work, I originally trained as a Spiritual Director and am now a Nationally Certified Reflexologist, Certified Life Coach and Reiki Practitioner. ...more

message 2: by Jean

Jean Wehner "Walking with Aletheia is an astonishingly vivid "survival document" by a courageous writer who spent several decades healing from numerous rapes by Catholic priests and cops at a Catholic girl’s high school in Baltimore. This shocking memoir is a "must-read" for all those who are determined to stop the sexual abuse of children."

Acknowledgement by Tom Nugent, author of Death at Buffalo Creek (published by W.W. Norton; sold on Amazon) and a reporter on the Emmy-nominated Netflix docuseries, The Keepers.

Jean Wehner Dr. Eligio Stephen Gallegos read my manuscript, Walking with Aletheia, and wrote a book review.
(He told me later that he knew nothing of the docuseries 'The Keepers', which I participated in.)

Shortly after I received his review, he sent me this e-mail...
“Since I wrote my brief book review for Walking with Aletheia I have begun to watch ’The Keepers’ and I am glad I read your book first. The Keepers was beautifully filmed and composed. However, it is about injury of the most severe kind, and your book is about healing. My understanding is that we need to focus on healing as you did, and even though the injury may be severe and violent, through the connection with the deep imagination we can help to focus the power that it contains in the direction of healing, growing, and maturing, and that is what the world needs right now. A seed grows in two directions: up into the sunshine and down into the earth. And it uses what it encounters and incorporates it into its growth and eventually into its blossoming. That is what I saw you doing as I read your book.”
