Amy Wright Glenn, MA
Transformed podcast

Loss is something that happens all the time in our lives, in various ways and to different degrees. On the third episode of TRANSFORMED, join Amy Wright Glenn and I as we sit down and have an open discussion of the parallels between birth and death; both necessary parts of life, both guaranteed to awaken us to our senses.

Being present with someone’s birth or death brings a sense of sacredness and mystery.“- Amy Wright Glenn
