Last year, I began working on a memoir. This manuscript was intended to reflect on the unlikely spiritual teachers and experiences that began showing up in my life decades ago, allowing me to become a conscious creator.
In the midst of this work (135 pages in, to be exact), I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. My life and my work came to a sudden halt. Although I had to discontinue my work on the memoir, I did manage to write intermittently about my treatment and experiences living with a life-changing diagnosis.
Like so many of life's challenges, I discovered that this illness was a powerful teacher and an opportunity for growth.
I have decided to set aside my prior work (for the moment) and to follow this new thread. I hope to share in a whole-new manuscript what it was like to live through breast cancer treatment while maintaining a spiritual mindset and navigate the divide between conventional treatment and alternative methods of healing.
