Episode # 9 Season 2 Speaking of Transformation Guest: Edie Allen – Speaker, Artist, Advocate & Breakthrough Specialist On this episode we are speaking transformation with speaker and healer Edie Allen. Edie’s start to her story is what I would simply call a nightmare. As a victim of sexual abuse in her childhood, Edie was just trying to survive. Today, as a survivor, her story is a lifeline for others to survive. I have never seen anything more powerful than Edie’s story. I suggest you watch this 7-minute clip on the Janie’s Fund stage, Steven Tyler’s philanthropic initiative created in partnership with Youth Villages to bring hope and healing to girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect, before you listen to this episode. You will be transformed by Edie’s transformation.
