Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Yoga Girl and 'international force in the world of yoga' (Allure), a moving and inspirational memoir on how to cope with tragedy, adversity and change through yoga. 

To love and let go, love and let go, love and let go...it's the single most important thing we can learn in this lifetime.

While on her way to a yoga retreat in the Caribbean, Rachel Brathen collapsed in the airport and was rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy. When she opened her eyes following the surgery, her boyfriend was at her bedside weeping, and she immediately knew something terrible had happened. She soon discovered that at the same time as her collapse, her best friend was killed in a car crash. 

Over the next two years, which should have been the happiest time of her life with her engagement and growing career, Rachel experienced trial after trial. From the overwhelming loss of her best friend, to the illness and death of her grandmother and a shocking suicide attempt by her mother, Rachel found herself in a deep depression. When she discovered she was pregnant, Rachel decided to use her pregnancy as a time to heal and an opportunity to be reborn herself. 

Now, in this evocative and remarkable memoir, Rachel shares the tools she used to cope with and overcome her depression. She invites you to share in her eye-opening epiphanies and realizations about life and death, love and fear, what it means to be a mother and a daughter, and the restorative power of yoga. Perfect for fans of Gabrielle Bernstein and Glennon Doyle, this unforgettable memoir will move and enlighten you.

Emotional

Loved this. I feel like death is a part of life that we are all raised unprepared for, and yet it is a part of life that we will all encounter time and time again, until our own. This book helps face the sadness, and hold onto the love. An important topic to discuss. Loved Rachel's emotional honesty, and although thoroughly heart breaking and relatable, also enjoyable in a cathartic way ♡

the most beautiful listen

I have followed Rachel's podcasts for years and learned so much from her teachings which have made me grow and guided me in much of my healing. this book is another example of how her honesty initiates so much healing and is all the more beautiful by being in her own voice. Thank you Rachel.

Wow Rachel gives us everything

You can find out how she’s such a fabulous teacher. She has been through so much and remains open and shares. It can help us all so much. Just listening to her melted me so many times. She has so much profound wisdom and practical help to share. Listening to this helped me to stay real and go through what I am feeling and not to try running. Her mother would have died if it hadn’t been for her. What a heavy weight indeed. But oh the love, far too much to calculate. I could listen to Rachel forever.
