My friend and fellow Yogi, Federica Leonardis, asked me to join her in conversation on TOUGH LOVE. How I survived a partner’s relapse on drugs, the experience of managing a family during this time and the cancer that took his life. This is a very frank and honest account of my story and recovery in Alanon, the 12 step fellowship for those affected by addiction in their loved ones. You will hear how I am messy, clumsy with my words, feelings and humbled by humanity in my search to heal, grow and thrive again. My intention to share this story is to inspire the courage, strength and hope that it will open conversations and raise awareness of the amazing support out there. Click here to listen.
