As a victim of childhood sexual abuse, Yonah Klem mistakenly believed that her version of reality was the Ultimate reality. After decades of therapy and study of Jewish mysticism, she finally cast off the heavy cloak of shameful misconceptions, and relaxed into ordinary life. A Long Journey to Joy provides a unique perspective on how to find joy despite a harrowing beginning. It is a amust reada for everyone in recovery and for the psychotherapists who guide them. In this rich, amazing memoir, Klem shares her struggles to become whole with a graceful narrative agility that inspires us into hope for our own lives. Youall enjoy and learn from it. --Carolyn Conger, Ph. D, nationally known spiritual teacherI was just very happy to get so dressed up.
