Nancy Szakacsy, licensed psychotherapist, author of two books detailing the loss of her daughter, Hannah, to a rare medical condition and vice-president of the D.R.E.S.S. Syndrome Foundation is Mark’s guest as the two discuss moving through difficult losses, hard times and the native spirituality in us all that can be a place of refuge. Brace yourself for a journey into sacred spaces, the bleakness of grief-and the power to transcend beyond it into hope and optimism. Nancy also wrote Hannah Was Here, a book detailing the long and dark journey of her daughter’s passing from D.R.E.S.S. syndrome.

    I was floored by her statement that we see change as loss. I always felt that I was “adept at adaptation” but in this situation, I totally get the feeling of loss.
    I also love her religion perspectives. She almost touched on Joseph Campbell stuff…
    Wonderful interview.
    You know, Mark, I really think our journey into Sociology gives us both these insights I to the human condition…ya know, not to embarrass ya…?

      Keith, it’s funny–as I listened to Nancy talk, I reflected on all of that with Dr. Horn–return to the familiar, all of it. Thanks for listening. I think there’s a lot to unpack in here.

    P.S. I’d love to hear an interview with her son.
