Remona Aly on breaking an engagement, and the transformative force of grief

Season 3, Ep. 16

Welcome to the Wintering Sessions with Katherine May.


While we take a rest over the summer, we’re sharing some remastered episodes from Season One, chosen by listeners.


In this episode, I speak to journalist and broadcaster Remona Aly about her life-changing decision to call off an engagement, and how it echoed through the years to teach her about forgiveness, faith and empathy.


This is such a special one for me - I went to school with Remona, and I think you can hear our joy at reconnecting after a couple of decades, and feeling so at home in the process. We cover all of human life here: buckle in.


We talked about:

  • Finding the sacred in everyday life
  • How grief changes you
  • The need for community
  • Breaking off an engagement and family shame
