The Healing Power of Friendship

Listen to “The Healing Power of Friendship” on Spreaker.

Everyone has friendships they’ve maintained over the years. But now more than ever, it’s too easy to lose the connection you share with those you care about. After surviving a catastrophic car accident this week’s guest Shari Leid was diagnosed with breast cancer that resulted in a double mastectomy in her 40s. It was at that point that Shari took stock of her life and her relationships. 

Enter ‘The 50/50 Friendship Flow: Life Lessons From and For My Girlfriends’ Shari Leid’s new memoir-meets-journal-meets-action-plan where she shares her experience of sitting down one-on-one with 50 friends over the course of one year to share the positive impact they had made in her life. 

Just a few of the topics we cover are 
• Get(ting) Rid of The BS, 
• Follow Your Dreams, 
• Simply Smile 
and one of my favorite quotes “A Roadblock is Life’s Sign to Take a Detour.” 

She also shared with us her Friendship Flow Challenge and her vision of her why “…it became crystal clear to me that health was a gift. By becoming healthy once again, I was given the opportunity to live each day to the fullest. I began to reflect upon and recognize the vast importance of the relationships in my life.” Learn more about Shari and get her book at

Join us Friday, November 20th at 7PM ET and later in a podcast for this deeply personal and fascinating interview where Shari offers a conscious path to not only maintain your friendships but to deepen those relationships. www.UnderstandingAutoimmune/Friend
