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 award-winning author, speaker and spiritual teacher Ayn Cates Sullivan. I’m going to say up front that I love this interview and I recognize that it might be challenging for some. Ayn talks about how she and her father healed their cancer and how that led her to follow her heart on a deeply spiritual path, which includes an experience in the divine light. Even if some of her story seems impossible to you, I encourage you to listen through to the end where you’ll find gentle wisdom that can apply to all of us. (Also, Ayn talks about the impact our ancestral line has on us from a spiritual point of view. There is new research in the scientific field of epigenetics that’s saying a similar thing – it’s mind-blowing.)
