    Part of grieving is returning to yourself. This is just one bit of the wisdom shared by ordained minister, full-spectrum doula, and educator Dr.Jamie Eaddy Chism in the fourth episode in our series on conscious dying. Dr.Jamie and Jenn discuss her work focused on transitions from birth to death and everything in between, and the lessons she has learned from her experiences of loss. Listen for powerful lessons on how your lost loved ones can move forward with you, finding contentment in not having all of the answers, and the power of silence.

    A Love Letter to an Incredible Friend with Yvonne Myles

    A Love Letter to an Incredible Friend with Yvonne Myles

    Ann Redelfs was simply an amazing person, and is remembered as an absolutely incredible friend. In this episode, health and wellness coach Yvonne Myles joins Jenn to share about her friend Ann, who she lost in 2020 after 41 years of friendship. Yvonne talks about the loneliness and isolation of loss and how creating a documentary about Ann and her widespread impact served as a cathartic creation process that allowed her and others to stay close to Ann and keep her fully present in their lives. The documentary and this podcast episode are a love letter to Ann, a woman who would go to the ends of the earth to demonstrate her love. 
     
    We usually publish episodes on Wednesdays, but this episode was published on September 13th, 2022 in honor of Ann Redelfs’ 65th birthday.

A.DreamDancer ,

Highly recommend!

I’m really enjoying this beautifully facilitated podcast. So much wisdom and compassion comes through the personal storytelling, sharing of expertise, and guided meditation or other healthy practices. The episodes shed light on how to move through grief and inspire a lot joy at the same time!

Inspiring

These are such important conversations that so many of us fail to have and/or wish we have had when it’s too late. I love considering conscious dying for myself and family members, and all the decisions we can be making ahead of time. Jenn is the embodiment of grace and compassion. This show is so needed!

Perfect timing

I recently connected with Jen and started listening to her podcasts before a 17 hour road trip and was able to listen to so many at one time. These podcasts have been empowering, encouraging, motivating and inspiring. I am grieving the loss of so many close family members, as well as other things, and am finally getting the tools necessary to really process these losses. Processing means true healing which leads to me truly living. Thank you Jen Cormier and all the guest speakers who are helping peel back my layers to a new discovery. I’m looking forward to my walk now.
