The Beautiful Side of Grief


Sep 27, 2023

March 20, 2012, at 4:00 AM, my nightmare began. My Kaleb gained his angel wings. I still, years later can remember every single detail of the night he died. It is a trauma I never will forget.

 

Despite knowing Kaleb's day would come sooner than most, June was shocked when it happened unexpectedly. She felt alienated. That she had to walk alone in her grief. It was a year later that June made the courageous decision to fight the demons taking over her life and find her way back from child loss. In doing so, she discovered almost everything about herself and her life had changed. Through trial and error, she found what helps to give her understanding and peace.

 

This episode is June's open, honest acccount of what she went through to have the life she has today, 11 years on, and the group she formed that helps other mommas facing childloss rebuild, and find their purpose. 

 

 

Biography

June K. Collins is a Master NLP Practitioner and Coach. In 2012, she lost her son, Kaleb, and found herself hitting rock bottom and not understanding how to rebuild her life without Kaleb in it. During this time, she found a passion with the mind and how individuals react to trauma. Through her own experience and education, she now helps other women rebuild and find purpose in their life.

June K. Collins wrote a book detailing her experiences with child loss and the demons she faced. She wrote 'Momma, You Don't Heal' to help other women to realize they are not alone and to help them begin the initial steps to rebuild their own life with purpose.

 

Momma, You Don't Heal was released on June 16, 2023, her 12th birthday after the loss of her son, Kaleb.
