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 it’s 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.
*Special Request: The technology of Skype is amazing and imperfect. Please listen with your heart and forgive the occasional blips on the screen.
This week’s interview is with the fabulous Kyeli Smith of Connection Revolution. She is a storyteller, change-maker and edgewalker who is currently traveling the continent in an RV with her wife and business partner, Pace. We had so much fun in this interview despite Skype being a bit testy that day. Kyeli talks about the loss of a big dream, toxic relationships, the impact of a new physical disability and Ouija boards. Enjoy!
