ENCORE PRESENTATION: Scarlett Lewis is back in the Café with Joy and Dan. Scarlett is the author of “Nurturing Healing Love” a mother’s journey of Hope and Forgiveness. Scarlett is the mother of Jesse Lewis and founder of The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation, and a new activist for peace.
After losing her son in the Sandy Hook Shooting Tragedy, Scarlett says:
“The blessing in tragedy is that it can break open your heart to allow you to see things more clearly. Priorities crystalize, insignificant feelings and things fall away and a realization dawns that all you might be left with is love, and that is ok. My experience has shown me that there is a greater plan and that faith is an essential part of acceptance and even progress. I am able to see now there are other ways to live, ways that are in service to others. The true meaning of compassion is not only identifying with someone's pain but also doing something to help ease that pain. When you put love in action, a miracle happens. It comes back to you in ways unimaginable.”
Scarlett will talk about her personal growth experiences, what’s new with the Foundation and her recent trip to Byron Bay, Australia, where she attended the “Uplift Festival” whose mission statement is: Upliftment for all. http://upliftconnect.com/
