Unchained: A Journey 
to the Soul
from Head to Heart

Unchained is a soul-awakening account of one woman’s life after childhood trauma. It is a story of one woman choosing to let go of who she thought she was, so she could become who she was meant to be.

Tonya Whittle’s story reflects what happens to so many women when they pretend trauma didn’t happen: who they become, what they do, and how they create a vision of themselves for protection. But what happens when the life someone is running from collides with the life they’ve created?

Unchained shares Tonya’s own journey through the collapse of a life falsely created; exposing her wounds and forcing the truth. Tonya encourages other women to take off their own masks, face their truths, and do the inner work necessary to live life fully.

Unchained takes women on a journey to the soul, from head to heart, from fear to faith, from girls gone wild to wild soul women. For anyone who feels disconnected from life, who is just getting by, Tonya encourages them to let go of the things that have happened to them and thrive despite those traumas. In the face of #metoo and #timesup, her story serves as an instruction manual for how ancient wisdom, and the process of facing the past, lead to an amazing future―no matter what happened.
