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.

Today’s interview is with artist, writer, photographer and coach Christa Gallopoulos of Carry It Forward. She is also the visionary behind WomenHeal: An Online Alliance. And she’s my friend. (see bio below)
I am honored to have her here, telling her story, pieces of which she is sharing publicly for the first time.
This is a longer interview (almost 32 minutes) so grab a cup of tea, a comfy seat, a quiet spot and hold this gift as it is given…with love.
Christa Gallopoulos is an intuitive artist/photographer/writer. She brings all of that, her training as a Martha Beck Certified Life Coach, and more to her practice at Carry It Forward, where she helps people connect with their inner wisdom.
In 2012, she founded WomenHeal: an Online Alliance, a place where women will weave together a powerful and creative collective to foster healing in themselves, each other and the world.
Nothing brings her greater joy than seeing people discover all they can be, and all they have always been. She believes that compassion is the answer to every question.

The Picking Up the Pieces Tele-Retreat starts Tuesday! I’m not running another one until mid-2013. If you or someone you know needs extra support, love + community through the holidays, sign up here. Give yourself this gift. You are SO worth it!
