“You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes everyday - unless you're too busy; then you should sit for an hour.”

About Katie

Katie Bean (she/her) is the author of Fragile Thoughts: A Healing Memoir which was published in May 2023 by New Degree Press. She spends her 9 to 5 empowering college students to embody a healthy lifestyle and the rest of her time is spent trying to listen to her own advice. She runs a monthly online Learning Circle, a book club with a self-study twist, to build connection with the purpose of healing and is starting to build a Substack community around this idea as well because we all have a #WriteToHeal.

Fragile Thoughts is written as both a personal narrative and a practical guide to healing. The memoir explores the intersection of three powerful healing tools: writing, vulnerable story-telling in community, and yoga practices. Through the author's personal stories, journal prompts, and instruction for yoga-based activities, the readers are encouraged to engage in their own healing journey.

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep Poem 

Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there. I did not die.
