Bless + Release is a personal journey.  The inspiration came at the end of a period of much loss in my life, six deaths in my family - seven including the death of my marriage. A few days after the remarriage of my former husband, it was clear to me that the time had come to repurpose my beautiful engagement ring.  It had been sitting in the bank for over a decade.  Aside from putting the ring on and admiring its beauty each time I would enter my safety deposit box, I didn’t think much about the ring.  Out of sight, out of mind. Or so I thought.


En route to repurpose my ring, I had a euphoric feeling come over me. It permeated my entire being. I felt unimaginable joy, a release.  Years before, someone had shared with me the concept that I was “Larger than my Story”. I thought, thank goodness!  It became undoubtedly clear that through this process, I was indeed starting a new chapter in the story of my life. I was grateful. Truly. Madly. Deeply Grateful.  The next wave that came was profound desire to share my experience with others, not simply to tell them but to facilitate their having their own experience. And so began the birth of Bless + Release.
