I feel so honored to have Lark Dean on The Modern Sages Podcast. Lark experienced the devastating loss of her 19-year-old son to suicide. Having already lost her father to suicide five years earlier, this second death hit hard. All expectations for the future were erased. Everything became difficult. Even breathing felt like a conscious decision.
This is the story of her raw and painful journey through despair and grief. It is standing on the brink of an abyss ready to pitch into the darkness and making the very difficult decision to step away from the edge. Lark shares how this decision has helped her heal from both her son’s and father’s suicides. It is her desire to instill hope in those who wonder how, or even if, they can go on.
