BeyondLoss came from a deep need to stand in prayer while walking through the darkest and most challenging period of my life. The fear of losing my soul mate to bone cancer brought up decades of unexpressed, compounded grief in me. As I continued to acknowledge and process my grief he became stronger and was very much alive long after his given prognosis. The few given months became several years and I continued to do the heart work. My perception of life and beliefs about death began to change. By letting go of the dust & grit of my journey, I was able to see the wealth in each now moment and to be truly thankful for the precious gift of life. Our shared journey became one of deepening compassion and commitment to lives well lived, moment by moment.
