"Anne Davis is a 'transition person'--a person who stops or breaks abusive, harmful, unhealthy or unfortunate events and replaces them with understanding and healing. Anne’s candor about being a victim and making the conscious choice to not remain a victim makes her uniquely qualified to understand and help others dealing with trauma or despair. She is a teacher and a leader. She will help others to be 'transition persons.'"

Anne has availed herself
to the Master Potter
and transformation by fire...







Much of your pain is self-chosen.

It is bitter potion by which the
physician within you heals your sick self.

Therefore trust the physician, and drink
his remedy in silence and tranquility:

For his hand, though heavy and hard,
is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,

And the cup he brings, though it burn
your lips, has been fashioned of the clay
which the Potter has moistened with His
own sacred tears.

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
