Flow & Restore is the open journaling of one woman’s personal journey through violence to find happiness, health and humanity. It is a story of forgiveness and recovery and a call for wounded women everywhere to creatively mine their own stories so that they can heal. It is also a reminder that life cannot be fully embraced without first standing up for what we truly believe in, finding our unique purpose in life, and then making a commitment to live it every day.
The journal ran for 6 months from 1 January to end of June 2013. It was always set with a clear focus of only existing for a limited duration, simply as the act of unearthing deep stories comes in seasons. This period covered the Winter and Spring periods of her life, the shedding of the past and the blossoming of a new way of being and living. Aid workers, women, and anyone who has experienced violence and knows that in such experiences lies the meaning of their lives will find a refuge in these writings.
Claire now runs a new blog called Heal+Restore which focuses on freedom, fitness and lifestyle topics. It roots itself firmly in Summer and Autumn and is a call to women who have experienced stress, trauma and burnout to take a stand for their health and happiness and bring their own sense of humanity back home to themselves.
