Strategies for Moving Through Grief & Healing with Cathleen Elle
Have you experienced a sudden loss in your life?
These experiences are never easy to move through – and you never truly get over it. It always stays with you, and you have to learn to live with that knowledge.
In this episode, I talk with the amazing Cathleen Elle, who recently published her book Shattered Together. Her book functions as both a preventative book and a reactionary book. The contents within help prevent suicide, depression, anxiety, and the day-to-day struggles of life. It also incorporates daily practices that will help you start living a life of purpose. If you’ve experienced a sudden loss, this book can help you get out of the darkness you’ve been living in.
Throughout our conversation, Cathleen vulnerably shares how she’s learned to thrive in life after her son’s sudden suicide. She shares about some of the darkest moments she’s lived through, how she initially stepped into the healing process, and how to treat yourself with grace if you’ve gone through a similar experience.
Tune in to learn more about Cathleen’s journey and how you can begin your own healing process as well.
