In October of 2018, Amanda stood on the ledge of a Canadian hotel room, ready to endher life. A song playing at the right place at the right time brought her down and she made a pact with herself. She was going to give it her all for one year. If she still felt the same desolation after that, she gave herself permission to jump. The only problem was that she had no idea where to start. She’d seen the counselors, taken the medications, journaled and read as many self-help books as her brain could handle.
Having majored as a Mind-Body-Wellness practitioner at the award-winning Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in 2011 with a specialty in holistic nutrition, she finally concluded that it was time to get back to basics. It wasn’t eating a salad or taking a Yoga class or reading a book. It was reconstructing her lifestyle and way of thinking as a whole.
