About this Event

Join the storytellers of S.P.E.A.K. for an evening of community connection through honesty, healing, and self-discovery. Our series continues with a story of ENDURANCE, told by the inspiring Jeannie Kaiser, of Royal Oak, Michigan.

"It became so much more than grief after my husbands suicide. It was the raw awakening after 20 years of riding the ocean of our love story. The shock that Love Does Not Conquer All! Who was I? What could help me? My in-laws said, "You need professional help." My parents said, "Baby, we don’t know how to help you." So on the eve of my loves suicide, I went to my therapists office, turned out her lights but one, and sat on the floor. I asked her to help me not to pass any of my dysfunctions onto my son...the stories that were dumped onto me that I no longer wanted. I went back to the beginning of my life. Took it all apart to find out what happened to me? Where did I go?

I sat in the discomfort. Owned it. Understood it. And started healing it.

The Endurance began.

One on one therapy, grief share, suicide support groups, out of the darkness walks, intuitive healers, Alanon, meditation, self numbing with food and wine, screaming in the garage, whatever the universe put in my path, I tried.

So I say to myself now with this opportunity to share, to SPEAK! Dare I believe I can share my story? To share there is a light? Do I still feel the need to dim my light so others can handle my truth? Or dare I feel worthy enough to think I can make a difference?

I dare to try."

-Jeannie Kaiser
