Leah RS Braun—Sex on Fire:Finding Embodied Intimacy After Trauma


About the Book:

How one woman overcomes her traumatic past to become a strong leader, a good parent, a healthy relationship partner, and an empowered woman, sexually and everywhere else.

Leah is a typical woman in society today — a mom, a wife, a small business owner. She is also typical because she is a survivor of rape. That rape and other sexual trauma are now typical in our society is tragic.

By telling her story, Leah shines light on our current rape culture, as well as outlining a powerful path toward healing traumatic wounds, finding the strength to tell her truth (and perhaps shades of many other women’s truths) as well as claiming her right to a full and embodied sexuality. By her brave example, Leah hopes to help many other women do the deep work of healing sexual wounds, hold their wounders accountable, and claim the lives and the healthy sexuality to which we are all entitled.

Join Leah as she walks us down the path of her trauma, the butterfly effect of that trauma, and her crawl, step by tumultuous step, out of the depths of shame, addiction, and codependency into a joyful, imperfect, triumphant, fully human life!

About the Author:

Leah RS Braun is nearly always uncomfortable talking about herself, but is working hard on not dimming her light, because that kind of thing really doesn’t serve anyone. Leah’s day job is: Yoga Studio Owner/Intuitive Personal Trainer, and her very cute studio is on the western edge of Minneapolis. Leah has worked in the fitness industry since 1993, and now spends her time trying to figure out ways to change that industry from the inside out. She provides professional development for yoga teachers and personal trainers on inclusivity, leadership, intuitive training/teaching methodology, and the general skills of the job. She lives with her (amazing) husband, two kids, and two cats about a half-mile from the studio in a regular house. She dreams often of ways to make the regular more sparkly in many areas of life. Leah REALLY likes talking to groups about fitness, trauma recovery, dancing, yoga, and lots of other stuff, so if you want to schedule an event, what are you waiting for?
