Robin Landsong’s amazing story will touch the lives of many people around the world when her book is released. Robin beautifully captures a shocking kidnapping that she survived which took her to Africa at the age of eight. I am honored to be one of the readers of her book before its release, and I cannot wait for others to get the chance to read her book. I can’t rave enough about this book. I cried. My heart expanded with love, and I felt like I walked part of her journey with her. Most of all, I felt great healing as I read her words. I am certain that others will feel this as well.
As a survivor of trauma myself, I understood that this book is not an expose of her experience. Rather, her book is a heartfelt, honest, moving memoir that will ultimately show readers how love can heal even the deepest of wounds. The love Robin Lansdong describes of the African mothers and fathers who sang to her and helped bring her back to life after the abuse of her kidnapper is particularly memorable. The two near-death experiences she details in the book are also profound.
In my interview with Robin, we talk briefly about her experiences in Africa and her two near-death experiences. We also touch on the importance of healing from trauma. Although I claim to feel a deep similarity with every near-death experiencer I interview, I am particularly inspired by Robin’s dedication to bringing more healing and light into the world.
