Hi everyone, I have such inspiring news to share with you. This is a true example of how out of the greatest challenges, one can create the most beautiful and inspiring outcomes as we realise that those challenges make life meaningful.
As many of you know 15 years ago, I lost my 16 year old daughter, Jennifer to suicide. And as I sat at the edge of the reef on the coast of Mombasa with her ashes in my hand, I made a promise that something very meaningful was going to come out of this greatest tragedy ...
... and today I'm here to announce this meaningful happening almost 15 years later.
You see the interesting thing is I always find there are no coincidences with Jen. She died from suicide on the 10th of October, 2005 and then I found out several years later, that in actual fact that’s World Mental Health Day!
So this year we are launching the most meaningful, powerful Mental Health Wellness Summit on the 10th of October, and we're calling it -
We're starting at 10 in the morning and finishing at 10 at night. And it's going to be a day that's filled with inspiring insight about fresh ways to look at mental health wellness.
We’re going to have interviews about people who have created such amazing things because they've had things happen to them, and they've found themselves in places of great stress, challenge, anxiety and even depression, and it's those things that have defined them.
We're going to have talks and interviews as well as a special magazine video section that will be filled with classes with presentations, classes, thought and applications on new ways to create mental health wellness ... and I'm very especially inviting you to become a part of this journey.
This is part of the legacy that I am going to leave behind one day when I draw my last breath. This is that moment at the reef, where I knew that something really meaningful was going to come out of this, that would make a difference to everybody worldwide.
If this inspires you to be part of this deeply meaningful journey, I would like to very personally and especially invite you to become a sponsor or patron.
There's a Donate button here, and whether it's £1 or however much you feel inspired to contribute to this as a supporter or patron, every little bit is an important part to birthing this meaningful day.
It will be amazing to have you on board.
So click on the link here and let's get the ball rolling.
10th of October is a date put in your diary now and you're going to be hearing lots more about it.
Looking forward to chatting with you some more.
Lots of love.
