Many of us have difficult and tragic pasts and only a few of our closest friends know about. Imagine what happens when you are in the public eye and EVERYONE reminds you about the history of alcoholism, mental illness and suicide, in your family. And what if your greatest fear is that you have “the curse” too. Author, activist, actress and advocate, Mariel Hemingway, is the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, an American journalist, novelist, short-story writer, whose writings won him a Nobel Prize and a Pulitzer Prize. Mariel has been Running From Crazy but after many years of focusing on self-care and healing, she now fully embraces being a Hemingway. Mariel will share how we too can embrace every aspect of who we are.
