Overview

Cult. A word we all know, but few will ever have reason to confront in their own lives. Something other families might have to deal with, something that will impact other children. Right? Maybe. Or, maybe not...

A bright and beautiful child brought up in an idyllic ranch setting, as a young woman Sandy should have had it all. Instead, she fell prey to a psychopath who consumed more than a decade and a half of her life.

“He did not need to chain or lock us in the room; our fear kept us in bondage, more securely immobilized than any physical restraints could have ever done.” - Tarra Judson Stariell

How do we become victims of our own irrationality? What makes us vulnerable to the predators among us? Why would an otherwise sensitive, intelligent woman allow herself to return again and again to her abuser? How do we stop the erosion of our self-worth?

Simultaneously recognizable and horrifying, we see parts of ourselves and our own vulnerabilities in this compelling story of one woman’s descent into and climb out of the abyss.

For anyone who has ever allowed themselves to be victimized, for anyone who has ever doubted their value, for anyone wanting to protect their children from such vulnerabilities, Sanity Lost and Found is a compelling, informative, and inspirational read that weaves together the how and why for such vulnerabilities and the components necessary for recovery and transformation.

About the Author

Tarra Judson Stariell's journey from a child lost amidst the angst of her parents to vulnerable young woman preyed upon by a sociopath to a healed and functional counselor of others is as compelling as it is amazing. Born and raised on a southern California ranch, Tarra joined the Peace Corps in the turbulent 70's, immersing herself in the culture of the South American country she was serving. Embracing the mysticism of her constituents, Tarra believed she received a message to return home and fulfill what she thought was her mission - to spread that message and save the world. Falling prey to a man who agreed to help her do so, she spent the next decade and more as an abused woman, controlled by his illness and her own disassociation from reality, leaving and returning to him in a textbook-case manner. How she found the strength to extricate herself, to heal, and ultimately help others is a hero's journey, at once compelling and horrifying, frightening and inspirational. Tarra has now returned to southern California where she assists others to find peace, harmony, and fulfillment in the reality of their lives.
