Freedom ROCKS by Emerging From Broken

Posted on: May 1, 2012

If you have never read Emerging From Broken, you need to do so.

On May 12 – 13, Darlene Ouimet CTACC, founder of Emerging from Broken, will host Freedom ROCKS, a global event aimed at letting go of past trauma. The following is an excerpt from “About Freedom ROCKS

“Coming through the emotional healing process was very often like squeezing through the eye of a needle. There were roller coaster weeks and seemingly endless days of walking for miles in the desert. There were times when I cried out ‘stop the world, I want to get off”  but there came the day I knew that I was never going to face the kind of confusion, depression or oppression that I had lived with for so long, ever again. I knew that I had “Emerged from Broken.”  I felt so “free” so grateful and so full of life. I started to use the expression “Freedom Rocks!” as a way to describe the joy I felt. Freedom from everything that had been weighing me down and holding me back was so new to me. It felt so fresh and invigorating; I felt so alive and freedom just “rocked” so when Lauralee shared her idea to throw a rock into a body of water with a key attached to symbolize “closing a door and throwing away the key” We started brainstorming about what to call this “event” and it seemed natural, even obvious, to name the rocks and the event ~ “Freedom ROCKS

Take a few minutes to check out this event! And then, GET INVOLVED!

About Darlene:

“After struggling my entire life with dissociative identity disorder, multiple personality, chronic depression, and the effects of child sexual abuse, I finally found the help that I needed and I began to emerge from broken. My life today is dramatically different than what it used to be. Living, really living, isn’t just getting from one day to the next coping with those issues. Living is fully embracing life and participating in it. It is about knowing who I really am and not being defined by my past or by any other person.

My journey has been both difficult and exciting, instilling in me an extreme passion for helping others live in freedom, without the shackles of fear and shame. Wherever we find ourselves in the recovery process, we have the hope of wholeness and a purpose filled life. Mine is a story of hope. Having come from the depths of despair to being thrilled at the prospect of a new day, this blog is about the process of healing, learning to face fear and walking forward in truth and joy. It is about thriving and flourishing in day to day life.”
