039 – An Open Letter to Grief Part One – with Jo Betz

Episode 39 with Jo Betz comes with a *trigger warning* for grief. Please listen mindfully and become aware of what feelings this episode may arise within you. Take the time to set the episode aside if it feels necessary and to validate what is coming up for you. You are welcome to join us again at any time and listen back in to this wonderful conversation normalising grief. Jo Betz is a wedding celebrant, author, speaker and blogger who suddenly lost her husband Craig 3 years ago to an asthma attack in the middle of the night. Jo shares her story here with us today to help normalise the conversation surrounding grief and to shine light into the areas of grief that society tends to shy away from. As someone currently moving through my own grief, I can say how much I didn't realise I desperately needed this conversation. Recording it and being present during it helped to validate my grief and what I have been feeling in more ways that one and it made me feel like I was truly not alone.
