We’re about to turn the calendar and begin a new year — thankfully. 2021 was another weird one, with churn and grief but also joy and gratitude.

This week, we turn our attention to the transition from 2021 to 2022 in a series of conversations with a group of powerful women who are all coaches and healers.

Mary Hayes Grieco is a forgiveness coach and author. She has taught her Eight Steps to Freedom forgiveness method for more than 30 years all over the world.

Susan Beaulieu is a citizen of the Red Lake Nation. She practices and teaches mindfulness and mind-body awareness to help people heal from childhood and generational trauma. 

Dr. Joi Lewis is an author, coach and consultant who teaches the Orange Method of Healing Justice.

On Monday, host Cathy Wurzer asked her guests how we can use the transition from one year to the next as a time for healing.
