How can we find light inside the dark maze of grief we navigate after the death of a loved one? How does the connection we shared with them continue and transform over time? This month, we welcome special guest Maryanne O'Hara, speaker, grieving mother, and author of numerous short stories and books, including Little Matches: A Memoir of Grief and Light, the newly released memoir of her daughter Caitlin's life, and her death at age 33 from cystic fibrosis.
The loss of Caitlin brought Maryanne face-to-face with life's deepest questions. As she wrote her memoir, Maryanne also trained as a certified end-of-life doula. Her work as an advocate for compassionate end-of-life care inspired her to develop a successful legacy writing workshop that helps participants engage in reflection and discussion about what they value most. Maryanne will share her story of resilience and the discoveries she continues to make as she strives to live a purposeful and meaningful life that honors her daughter.
