We are all born and we will all die, making both of these transitions as gracefully as possible. But what will we do with each breath in between?
At the age of 14, Amy Wright Glenn began to question the Mormon faith of her family. She embarked on a lifelong personal and scholarly quest for truth. While teaching comparative religion and philosophy, Amy was drawn to the work of supporting women through labor and holding compassionate space for the dying. In Birth, Breath & Death, Amy shares moving tales of each life transition while drawing on her work as a birth doula, hospital chaplain and her own experience of motherhood.
In addition to her doula and chaplaincy work, Amy is a scholar of comparative religion and philosophy with over 20 years of Yoga and Meditation teaching experience. She earned her Masters of Arts in Religion and Education at Columbia University. Amy taught for 11 years in The Religion and Philosophy Department at The Lawrenceville School in New Jersey and was the recipient of the Dunbar Abston Jr. Chair for Teaching Excellence. A Yoga, Prenatal Yoga Teacher and (CD)DONA, she is the voice for “Motherhood, Spirituality, and Religion” for Philly.com, blogs for Attachment Parenting International, Doula Trainings International and The Birthing Site, and is a regular columnist for Holistic Parenting Magazine. Birth, Breath & Death is her first book.
Amy teaches Yoga and Pre-natal Yoga in South Florida.
