This is a powerful show with Jeannie Kerrigan, whose book Layla is the true life story of her journey through unimaginable challenges, including physical and sexual abuse, rape, abduction, drug addiction, stripping, prostitution, and grief. 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, “ever sacred always moving energy.”
Her book has been described as a portal, a gateway for everyone to step through. Layla can be likened to a 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.
Jeannie Kerrigan is a healer, teacher, author, spiritual leader, and founder of Ricky’s Revenge, a national outreach program that helps runaway and homeless youth and victims of domestic violence.
