A story of extraordinary resilience, faith, and healing in the wake of adversity.
Heather Drummond lived a life of incredible resilience from a young age, overcoming a challenging childhood to move forwards a life of abundant joy. Dear River is her legacy to her son, River, written in the form of letters to him on his first birthday.
A life ecstatic with love but also entwined with sexual abuse, low self-esteem, drugs, alcohol, suicide and divorce. These extremities forged a path to deep spiritual grounding that culminated in extraordinary gratitude, healing and self-awareness.
At the centre of it all is the transformative experience of finding her soulmate, Garth, whose inner peace and calm was so unshakeable that Heather soon found herself embracing opportunities that most would find uncomfortable. Willing to do anything to heal naturally from emotional pain and childhood trauma.
Leaning into the twists and turns of life with grace and flexibility, Heather recounts her healing journey exploring yoga, breathwork and inter-faith complexities with honesty, enthusiasm and warmth.
From finding freedom from grief and trauma, to loving your body from the inside out, finding restorative practices that bring health and calm, and placing faith in all-consuming love and determination, Heather’s journey is both relatable and valuable to those seeking healing and joy.
What she has left as a legacy for her son is, in fact, a loving gift to all.
