In this episode I talk with Erica Nunnally of the Bija Institute. It was such an honor to be able to interview Erica and hear her story about the creation of the Bija Institute after one of her two Daughters was diagnosed with cancer when she was three years old.
During this interview there was so many times where I was on the other end of the microphone, just listening to Erica’s Story and I was in tears. It was such an endearing story and the fortitude that her and her husband walked with and what they have done since. They went on to create the Bija Institute and the Bija Foundation. The Bija Institute is a place to hold retreats or you can go on and retreat yourself.
The foundation is for parents who are going through something similar to what Erica and Eric (her husband) went through. The foundation is to provide support and give them the opportunity to visit the Bija Institute and get that time to breathe and grieve and do whatever they need to do for themselves because they’re being so strong for their children.
If you are in the market to get a little retreat yourself or to schedule a retreat for a group, definitely check out the Bija Institute in Cumberland, Rhode Island.
