DEATH, LIFE, AWAKENING
In 2014, Worthy survived a near fatal collision in East Asia, and the course of her life irreversibly shifted. Her Near Death Experience, which she has discussed in interviews since 2017, transformed her perspective of science and illuminated her understanding of consciousness.
This was a complete spiritual awakening and a pivotal initiation.
Since that life-altering event, Worthy's path has been articulated by her direct encounter with the liminal space between death and life, where time and form vanished, and her body dissolved into light.
She is passionate about designing mindfulness programming that: strengthens one's capacity for resilience, nurtures post-traumatic growth, transmits healing awareness, and bridges neuroscience with spirituality in ways that regard the body's intelligence with a felt sense of abiding, soulful care.
