This is an episode that I’ve known was coming for some time. It’s a hard one, but I want to make it a beautiful one too.
In this past month, my mother passed away after a long battle with breast cancer.
It’s hard to put into words just how these past few weeks have felt, but at this moment, one word comes to mind – bittersweet.
It’s the pain of losing mum mixed in with the magic of holding the most beautiful retreat.
It’s the most incredible experience of my life, and the most difficult.
It’s the feeling of losing someone – but also seeing so many people coming to join together.
It’s been a time of grief but also so much love and it’s that beauty that I want to focus on today.
There were moments when I thought that the retreat wouldn’t or couldn’t happen, but Mum held on and I was able to share that amazing, healing, fulfilling experience with her. I was able to show her the powerful, wonderful women that came and invested in themselves, and the transformations that they went home with.
She was here to share in one of the most beautiful experiences of my life, and then she had the most beautiful passing.
Today, this is the story I’m sharing. It’s raw, it’s powerful, it’s spiritual, it’s healing – and it’s beautifully bittersweet.
