Author Jeannie Kerrigan pulled the story of Layla from the marrow of her bones and the structure of her cells. It is the true life story of her journey through physical and sexual abuse, rape, abduction, drug addiction, stripping, prostitution, death and more death, and it is an account of the human journey between dualities-light and dark, broken and whole, hell and heaven, fear and absolute love. At Layla’s core are ancient wisdom teachings and experiences of earth-based quantum healing through indigenous spirituality, most specifically Lakota Native American Ceremony, and an understanding of what the Lakota call Taku Wakahn Skan Skan, “something sacred in motion” This book has been described as a portal, a gateway for everyone to step through. Layla is one woman’s autobiography, and it is also the narrative of our collective evolution, our legacy as human beings. It’s a story of the imbalance and wounding between masculine and feminine, a story of sexual abuse in the church, a story of deep and painful family secrets, a story of addiction and avoidance, a story of death and loss and unfathomable grief, and, ultimately, a story of the absolute universal love and goodness that lay at the core of every being. In some form, this is a story that we all carry in our bones. Layla offers every reader the opportunity to experience the search for the Divine, and the realization that it is always present, moving everywhere and in everything.
