Finding the Gift in Grief

In this episode


In this profound episode titled “Finding the Gift in Grief,” I had the privilege of speaking with Danette May, whose journey through life’s extremes embodies themes of loss, resilience, spiritual connection, and the evolution of the self. Danette, a beacon of positivity with a compelling story, shared her deeply personal experiences with me, taking me from her idyllic childhood close to nature and animals to the heart-wrenching loss of her son, which profoundly transformed her life and purpose.

Danette recounted the intimate connection she has always felt with the world beyond the physical, a sentiment that has been deeply rooted in her since childhood. She shared vivid memories of her upbringing on a mini-farm, her early awareness of a calling to connect people with nature, and a profound sense of being known and loved by a higher power. Her narrative is a testament to the strength and guidance she has drawn from these connections, especially during the darkest times of her life.

Now it’s time to commit to a grounded action:
What is one baby step you can take in that direction?
