September of 2013, I lost my sister to suicide. She lived in Florida. My whole sense of reality was tilted and I felt like I was lost, falling apart. The shock was intense and long lasting. All of my spiritual and yoga practices went out the window. Nothing made sense. Having Michelle Muething and Sandy Iglehart as guides and the support group (Lifeline) facilitated by the Hope Center staff – I found a safe place to connect to others who were immersed in similar unfathomable pain. At a time when I was unbearably vulnerable, the Aspen Hope Center gave me tools, comfort and helped me to access resources that slowly brought me back to wholeness.
I will be forever grateful. – Peggy Burke, Snowmass, CO
