Rachel Brathen, TO LOVE AND LET GO

I’m thrilled to share this conversation I had with Rachel Brathen. I interviewed her on Instagram Live at the Simon & Schuster offices on her publication day! (For the video, click here.)Rachel is the founder and CEO of Yoga Girl and the author of the New York Times best-selling book also called Yoga Girl. I absolutely loved her new memoir, To Love and Let Go: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Gratitude, about a year in her life in which she "had the most amazing things happen and the most terrible things happen at the same time." For anyone who has ever gone through a loss or who wants inspiration (from someone who has overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to dedicate herself to helping millions of others around the world in a spiritual, soulful way), this book is for you. As she quotes in the book, "I believe in the good things coming, coming, coming....."
