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.

This week’s interview is with teacher, writer and coach Julie Daley of Unabashedly Female. I sat watching it earlier this week, completely mesmerized by Julie’s wisdom, grace and her ability to be fully present. There is so much richness in these 26 minutes. Julie was a fundamental support in my early grief and I am deeply grateful to have her sharing her story here.
A dancer at heart, Julie would love nothing more than to live her life and do her work from the dance floor. Ten years in the practice of 5Rhythms has opened her to the joy and wildness that is at the heart of women’s creativity. A writer, teacher, coach, and yes, dancer, Julie savors life playing with her wee grandchildren & serving the women and men who are called to work with her. Julie is happiest when she is breathing through her feet.
You can find her at Unabashedly Female, on Facebook and Twitter. To see her flower photos that we refer to in the video, click here.
