The Sacred Mystery of Birth and Death with Amy Wright Glenn: Episode 3
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
