Monique-Minahan-Warwick's-2I’m Monique. Daughter of Aleyda, granddaughter of Concepcion, and great-granddaughter of Angelica.

I wrestled with depression from my early teens and became a widow at 25 years old. In my early 30s I left religion and found yoga, which I credit as taking me from surviving to thriving.

These days I write. I teach yoga. I mother my son. I laugh a lot. Not enough, but I’m working on that.

I post daily on grief here.

You’ll find old samples of my writing on elephantjournal and The Huffington Post.

The Grief Practice is my second book on grief and loss and first (successful!) attempt at creating a beautiful, art-filled, large-format, workbook-style book.

I live in San Diego, California, where I plant giant sunflowers every spring and believe at least six impossible things before breakfast.

I send a note to you once a month or so if you say yes here. No bells-and-whistles, just some honest words from my heart to yours.

What would I say if the whole world was listening?

This is not a dress rehearsal.

What would you say?
