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.
*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 writer, teacher and creative artist Liz Lamoreux. Liz is one of those women I’ve long admired in the online world and I’ve recently had the pleasure of getting to know her better. She is deeply committed to creating community through the telling of our stories, and excavating the truth and beauty in all of life’s moments. Today she talks about how her creative practices helped her through a well of grief after her grandmother’s death, supported her when her newborn daughter needed open-heart surgery and continue to feed her soul and her work today.
