I found meditation when my son was in the midst of treatment for aggressive leukemia. My despair during that time was the tipping point for my entire journey and I was thrilled to share my story on the latest episode of The True North Collective Podcast. We get into the nitty gritty about where I was then and the precarious path I took to get to where I am now. We laugh about how much I love fighting against the current of life and what happened when I finally learned to let go of control and flow downstream where all the good stuff hangs out. (Get in the boat!)
We discuss my relationships, the places I still get stuck, my occasional desire to run away, why I quit drinking alcohol, and how I’ve learned to love allll the parts of myself — even (and especially) when they are in contrast with one another. But most importantly, we talk about how my life came into a really beautiful space once I finally decided to honor, trust and deeply care about who I am. (And if you’re into the woo, we have a fun conversation about our girls Clair — clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience and claircognizance.) A little something for everyone!

I am regularly asked about my decision to quit drinking. I am not in recovery as many often assume before hearing my full story. Going teetotal was a difficult and personal choice I made in order to find a happier, more lucid life. To hear all the details, please listen to my in-depth interview with Denaye Barahona on her Simple Families Podcast. We discuss every bit of my sobriety journey in detail!
