Michelle Ann Collins - Book Release Party
Thursday, January 26th, 2023, at noon PST via Zoom
If you have lost a spouse or partner or are supporting someone who has lost a spouse or partner
to suicide, then you will want to grab copies of the new books by Michelle Ann Collins on the topic. Her books "Surviving Spouse or Partner Suicide: A Mindful Guide for Your Journey Through Grief" and "Supporting a Survivor of Spouse or Partner Suicide: A Mindful Guide for Co-Journeying Through Grief," will be available for purchase on Amazon starting on January 26, 2023. She has included her story and the tools and studies she used to move through her healing journey, including mindfulness, meditation, and yoga. Since the death of Michelle's husband by suicide in April 2016, she has found a lot of meaning through writing. She took a long and winding road
getting to the meaning, including learning about grief, loss, and trauma and becoming a certified Grief Educator. Transforming her journey into service, she has written two books to help others navigate the difficult journey of losing a spouse or partner to suicide or supporting someone while they grieve such a loss. The books are meant to help those suffering from this loss and their supporters navigate this incredibly difficult healing journey. If you or someone you love has experienced spouse loss or partner loss to suicide, you will find comfort and support on your healing journey through these books. Please reach out to Michelle if you are a survivor of spouse/partner suicide loss or are supporting one. Please help her celebrate this accomplishment by attending the release party on Thursday, January 26th, 2023, at noon PST via Zoom:
