About this week’s episode 

I met this week’s guest Julia through Instagram, where she candidly shares about stigmatized loss and widowhood. I felt intrigued by what and how Julia shares and clearly felt that we need to know and understand more about this topic. Her husband’s way of dying brings about people’s judgments and ideas, often without looking a bit deeper behind the veil. I invite you to be mindful of your thoughts and feelings and investigate your own assumptions when listening to today’s episode.

If you'd like to know more about stigmatized loss, go to the website and find the podcast gifts page. There you can download Julia’s e-book about the topic. Simply enter the podcast number – as in a word – where it asks you for the password.      

About this week’s guest 

Julia became a widow on September 1, 2021, when her husband, Doug, succumbed to his lifelong battle with addiction and died of an accidental overdose. This left her a solo mom of two young boys, with a deeply unregulated nervous system, a burning desire to live life fully in his absence, and a passion to help many women just like her along the way by sharing her truth. She is deeply passionate about speaking about the intricate layers that come along with losing someone to addiction to help educate others and soften the stigma while providing a safe landing for those looking for support as they navigate stigmatized loss and widowhood. 

As a trauma-informed yoga teacher with extensive training in guided meditation, energy work, yogic philosophy, as well as nervous system regulation and somatics, she helps her clients find healing by teaching them how to get in touch with their bodies, their emotions, and the felt sense through gentle somatic work and support.
