Hollye  Dexter

What are you ashamed of?

Shame is very powerful. Useful in the moment, destructive when it lingers, shame is a burden all of us carry. Unless we learn how to free ourselves of that burden.

Now, Hollye Dexter, Amy Ferris, and 25 other women they reached out to share their stories of the burdens of shame they carried.

But their book “Dancing at the Shame Prom” is not a discouraging nor depressing litany of shamefulness. It’s the opposite ….

it’s an uplifting, even exhilarating exorcism of the destructive kind of shame.
