Inhaltsangabe

“Rachel beautifully illustrates that loving fiercely and grieving deeply are often two halves of the same whole. Her story will break you down and lift you up.” (Glennon Doyle, author of the number one New York Times best seller Love Warrior and founder of Together Rising)

While on her way to teach a yoga retreat in March 2014, Rachel Brathen collapses at an airport, brought to her knees by excruciating stomach pains. She is rushed to the hospital on the tiny island of Bonaire and hours later forced to undergo surgery. When she wakes up from anesthesia, her boyfriend is weeping at her bedside. While Rachel was struck down with seemingly mysterious pain, her best friend, Andrea, sustained fatal injuries as a result of a car accident. Rachel and Andrea had a magical friendship. Though they looked nothing alike - one girl tall, blond, and Swedish, the other short, brunette, and Colombian - everyone called them gemelas: twins.

Over the three years following Andrea’s death, at what might appear from the outside to be the happiest time - with her engagement to the man she loves and a blossoming career that takes her all over the world - Rachel faces a series of trials that have the potential to define her life. Unresolved grief and trauma from her childhood make the weight of her sadness unbearable. At each turn, she is confronted again and again with a choice: Will she lose it all, succumb to grief, and grasp for control that’s beyond her reach? Or can she move through the loss and let go?

When Rachel and her husband conceive a child, pregnancy becomes a time to heal and an opportunity to be reborn herself. As she recounts this transformative period, Rachel shares her hard-won wisdom about life and death, love and fear, what it means to be a mother and a daughter, and how to become someone who walks through the fire of adversity with the never-ending practice of loving hard and letting go.

All colors of love

In this book Rachel takes us on a journey through the many layers of grief and all colors of Love. The challenging love for her suicidal Mother, the deep, life-defining love for her best friend, the unconditional love for her Dog, and the constantly evolving love for her husband. All of these loves are presented and felt equally.
It's the strength of this book and the rare and special gift not only to feel but also to share her feelings in all their many layers, from moment of bright light and love to the darkest moment of questions like: How many times, in which my partner has to literally pick me of the floor is just one time too many? How do I tell people, that my best friend died but the death of my dog is the moment I completely fall apart?
The absolute honesty and rawness of this book makes it in parts challenging to listen to, but in the end evermore so rewarding. As a weekly listener to her podcast, hearing Rachels voice reading the book in a slightly distant voice is especially touching, as I really felt her struggle not only in living through his hardship, then writing about it and finally have to read out loud all the darkest moments of her personal journey.
It has been a service and a kindness to share this with the world and give us a moment to appreciate the full depth this extraordinary human being is capable to love, and to be with her in the heartbreaking moments where she just needed to let go.

Very engaging and intensive story

I love that Rachel read the book herself! It is an engaging story which made me think much about purpose, life and timing. I love it! Recommendation also for people who don't know Yoga girl before reading or listening to the book.

Sehr empfehlenswert

Bin etwas voreingenommen (von wegen intagram-hype) an das Buch rangegangen und bin eines Besseren belehrt worden. War tief bewegt, beeindruckt und konnte für mich sehr viel mitnehmen. Danke!

So deeply touching

Thank you so much Rachel for sharing your story. I listened to the whole book within one day. I don't remember the last time I've cried so much. I'm still sobbing because I'm deeply touched by your life story. All I can do is thank you for opening up and letting me so close to your heart. Thank you
