Welcome to Transformation Talk. Every Thursday for a year, starting in September 2012, I’ll post an interview with someone who is a force for good in the world. These men and women have either deepened their passion or found their calling after experiencing a loss, trauma or diagnosis.
I want to broaden the conversation around grief and its transformative power. My hope is that in their words you’ll find echoes of your story. In their inspired actions, you’ll see yourself and your immense possibility.

Today’s interview is with heARTist, author and grief & creativity coach, Kara LC Jones, also known as Mother Henna. She is the co-creator of The Creative Grief Studio and The Creative Grief Coaching Certification program. She talks with us today about the stillbirths of her babies, a recent miscarriage, how creativity is intricately tied to grief and why she’s so excited about narrative therapy.
