From Loss Through Recovery to Evolution
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
If there is one thing that is universally feared, it is loss. Loss of income, a home, a relationship, or a loved one is very traumatic for any of us. At the same time, loss is a constant in life where everything is subject to continuous change.
Everything has purpose. The key to finding it is in transforming the experience into something positive.
Is it possible to recover from loss and use it to become more than we were before? How can we not only recover, but move beyond suffering and tap into the evolutionary power of loss?
With us this hour to delve into loss, recovery and transformation is Jeannie Seeley-Smith, author of “Nine Friends In Time Of Loss.” For nearly 38 years, Jeannie has served as CEO of Perspectives.
