Amy Wright Glenn

A Doula’s Reflections on Life and Death

with Cornelia Mazzan

Birth-Breath-and-Death-Front-Cover-copyThis is a beautiful gem of a book, written by a woman who looked within and then outside her inherited Mormon faith and traditions to find insights into life’s biggest questions about love, pain, and mystery.

Critical of the corruption found in the denial of feminine intuition and curiosity, Amy Wright Glenn remained hungry for spiritual support and missed having rituals to honor the the rites of passage and life, including weddings, funerals, births, and deaths.

As a privileged witness of miracles in her roles as birth doula, hospital chaplain, and yoga teacher, she focuses on meditation and the power of breath to open the heart and to facilitate remarkable journeys at the thresholds of life, motherhood, and death.
