“Inside every pearl is a secret. Inside every pearl is pain.” With that intriguing beginning, Theo Selles takes you on a compassionate, yet firmly and clearly written program of recovery from loss and shame. The goal: nothing short of complete reclamation of your life. Through the use of allegories, case examples, guided imagery, references to the Sandusky trial, and step-by-step instructions, Theo shows that you can, indeed, fully heal. You don’t have to believe the myth that your life is inevitably and perpetually destroyed or that you have been forever damaged.
Do you want to know why it is wrong to refer to rape and molestation as “sexual” abuse? Do you want to rid yourself of guilt, shame, fear, anger, and pain, and learn how to give them to the abuser where they belong? Do you want to know why it is not the type of abuse that determines its harm? Wouldn’t it be a relief to cleanse your life of the contaminating effects of abuse and be able to love, fully and freely? Read this book if you have been violated or if you want to know how to support someone who has been abused. With a tough, yet sensitive approach, Theo will guide you to the heart of your pain, help eradicate it, and leave beauty, strength, and love in its place.

His book "Selfishness Matters", a self-help parody book "even a man would read" is a scathingly funny attack on the culture of Self and pokes fun at relationship "experts" who take themselves far too seriously.read more
