Speaking with Donna Visocky about her loss and the wisdom she gained was a powerful experience. Humble and full of wisdom, she inspired me as well as countless others with her story.
Successful business woman and married mother of four, Donna Visocky never expected her comfortably predictable life to take the heart-stopping twist it did early one morning in 2003. It was a “parent’s worst nightmare” scenario – an insistent doorbell ring at 5:30 a.m., police cars parked in front of her house, and two officers and a chaplain standing on her front porch. Trembling and barely able to breathe, Donna froze for a brief moment just inches from the front door. She knew that by opening the door, she was somehow agreeing to accept whatever terrible thing had happened — what her heart was screaming to her would be soul-crippling news. She was right. What these men were there to tell her was unthinkable, more horrific than she could have ever imagined – Kristi, her daughter, had been killed in a car accident just one mile from home.
In I’ll Meet You at the Base of the Mountain, Donna candidly shares – often with brutal honesty — the most intimate moments of her inner and outer struggle to rebuild her life after the loss of her child. Motivated by guidance she receives from Kristi on the other side, and a compelling, but puzzling directive: “I’ll meet you at the base of the mountain,” Donna begins a soul’s journey to find meaning and hope in the midst of tragedy.
Author, speaker and founder of BellaSpark Productions and BellaSpark Magazine, Donna Visocky, knows a great deal about connecting with Spirit and awakening to greater possibility. Devastated by the tragic death of her daughter, Donna began a journey of exploration into spirituality and the expansiveness of life – both seen and unseen. BellaSpark Productions was born to contain these new experiences. Bella means Beautiful and Spark is for the Divine Spark in all of us.
For the past ten years, Donna has met, interviewed and facilitated conversations and events with many of the world’s top visionaries. In her new book I’ll Meet You at the Base of the Mountain, she candidly shares the most intimate moments of her inner and outer struggle to rebuild her life after the loss of her child.
