On this episode we are talking to Michelle Collins, author, grief educator, yoga and meditation coach. Michelle's husband Glen took his own life in 2016. Michelle talks to us today about the aftermath of the loss and how she is rebuilding her life.

Michelle and I chat about:

~ How she felt enormous guilt and shame after losing Glen

~ How she suffered from PTSD and what that felt like.

~ How she turned to alcohol and drugs to cope.

~ How a meditation retreat at the Chopra Center changed her life!

~ How she became a grief educator through a David Kessler program in 2021

~ How she connected with TAPS and finally felt accepted and supported!
