Our guest today, Rachelle, really has a way of finding the beauty in it all and reminding us not to be afraid of death.

We're discussing the death and loss we’ve experienced and how we didn't always find the right ways to cope. Rachelle talks about the intervention her family had with her about her drinking after losing her mother. She shares how she found the path as a healthy way of processing the death and loss of a loved one. Rachelle’s story begins with loss; but lead her to founding her business, The Neshama Project, to teaching her successful yoga class. Her ability to connect with people and to weave meaning and soul into her work in the world is profound. She’s very inspiring and we hope you connect to this week’s episode and feel as inspired by her story as we do.
