About Don Shetterly

Creativity and writing are two of my passions in life.  I use writing from the heart to help bring consciousness and awareness to the mind body connection.  Using real everyday experiences, I try to apply what I have learned in a positive way that helps other discover more about themselves and life.   

In my spare time, I create relaxing piano music, paint, and do healing bodywork that specializes in trauma recovery.  In 1991, I was paralyzed from Conversion Disorder and now I have healed from it.

In 2010, I was a participant on the 200 Male Survivors episode of Oprah.  It was a difficult and emotional day, but one where I was proud to stand with 200 other male survivors of child sexual abuse, proving that healing and surviving are possible.

In 2012, I was a guest on the Dr. Drew show concerning the Leroy, NY case.  I was there to present what I had been through in regards to Conversion Disorder.

I am available for workshops, seminars and other speaking engagements.  I have a desire to help others become all they can be regardless of the experiences they may have lived through in their life.

Please help support me and my endeavors by purchasing my book and my relaxing piano music.
