Birth, Breath, and Death, With Amy Wright Glenn
Thursday, February 5, 2015
At the age of 14, Amy Wright Glenn began to question the Mormon faith of her family, taking the first step of embarking 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 her book, Birth, Breath, and Death: Meditations on Motherhood, Chaplaincy, and Life as a Doula, Amy shares moving talks of birth and death while drawing on her work as a birth doula, hospital chaplain, as well as her own experience of motherhood—entwining story, philosophy, and poetic reflection into transforming narratives full of compassion and grace.
