Surviving Spirit Calendar 2014

Available for a limited time

The Healing Years

The Surviving Spirit has a working relationship with Big Voice Pictures to facilitate the selling or the viewing presentation of their film documentary, “The Healing Years.”

This artfully produced documentary illustrates the poignant stories of incest survivors: former Miss America, Marilyn Van Derbur, speaking out; Janice Mirikitani, President of Glide memorial Church, San Francisco, who helps inner-city women addicts to heal from incest; and Barbara Hamilton, a 79-year old survivor who ends three generations of incest in her family.  



We can also help provide speakers to hold a Question and Answer session after the showing of the film. This will help to enhance the viewing of this powerful documentary.

"This documentary does the most difficult, almost impossible feat: it admits the sick and cruel past. In doing so, it becomes therapy for a healthy future. This is an exhibition of abundant courage and great heart. Thank you."  - Maya Angelou

"This powerhouse of a film profiles three strong, vibrant survivors of child sexual abuse who convincingly tell us -- once and for all -- that we must take back our lives. This documentary banishes shame & celebrates women's power." - Laura Davis, co-author, Courage to Heal

"This is one of the best videos on child sexual abuse and incest! The Healing Years is a powerful experience, which will make an excellent training tape for all interested in working with and for survivors. I'm using it in my classes!" - Dr. Jon Conte, Professor of Social Work University of Washington
