Welcome to Transformation Talk. Every Thursday for a year, 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 author and coach Erica Staab, who has been a personal touchstone for me in my healing journey. Her kindness, compassion and complete acceptance of others radiate off the screen. I hope you enjoy her words as much as I do.
Leave a comment below to be entered into the drawing for a copy of Erica’s beautiful book, The In-Between. Winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday October 17 and announced on this page so be sure to check back!
Erica is an author, massage therapist, director of a local domestic violence and sexual assault organization, speaker, healer and cheerleader/catalyst to help you live your best life. In her words:
My day is not complete unless it has lots of words in it – either that I am writing or reading. If I am not doing those things I am probably trying to capture beauty in a photograph, laughing with my niece and nephew or spending time with friends and family. Each day is an effort to live out my prayer to be love made visible.
