Michelle Ann Collins
How will I survive this loss?
When her life shifted from fairytale to nightmare due to her husband’s death by suicide, Michelle Ann Collins found herself in the darkest place imaginable, reaching for answers to questions like: How am I going to eat, sleep, get out of bed, and do all the things? As a yoga therapist and wellness coach, she had more tools than many suicide loss survivors do, and yet escaping the dark grief cave required the most excruciating work of her life.
It may feel like it now, but your life did not end with theirs.
In this book, Michelle shares the tools, insights, and practices that enabled her to drag herself out of the cave, release the mental and emotional burdens, and build a deep resilience as she climbed the mountain of grief and eventually gained enough strength to turn around and help others.
When you need to remember how to breathe, eat, sleep, or wonder if you will ever be able to move forward, open up this book and grab Michelle’s hand.
"From the beginning, when I wrote the first words to my book, I could envision the summit--me holding my book in my hand, seeing it in bookshops, giving book talks. But I quickly found out that writing a book is quite a ride. The ups and downs and learning experiences, getting stuck and unstuck, were all incredibly challenging. Amanda and her community were there to hold my hand, explain that everything I was going through was a normal part of the process and, most importantly, continually remind me that there was a summit and I was going to reach it. Authorship can be a lonely journey, yet True To Intention provides an entire community of authors who feel like family supporting you throughout the process. A benefit that cannot be praised enough! I absolutely could not have finished the book without Amanda and her team. They were friendly, supportive, professional, and knew when I needed a push or a hug."
