Ep. 25: Eris Rising – Dancer Escapes Domestic Abuse

This week’s guest on “Happiness through Hardship” – The Podcast has a shocking story about how it’s possible to move forward after life-altering harm. I’m excited to introduce you to Courtney Ramm, a dancer, holistic practitioner, mother and first-time author of Eris Rising. This debut memoir is a deeply personal tell-all about a relationship with a dangerous man that led her down a dark path, yet she found her way out. Courtney holds a warrior spirit like the greek goddess, Eris, as she speaks about the injustices she experienced in an effort to help others.

Courtney spent years following the route of success – by the age of eight she was studying at the renowned School of American Ballet and soon thereafter, performing on New York’s greatest stages. At twenty-five years old, she acted upon a strong inner calling to start her own dance company in Hawaii. The one thing missing from the picture-perfect life she had imagined: a perfect husband. When she first locked eyes with Marcus at a spiritual gathering, she sensed something was off in the uncanny intensity of his stare. But she dove into a relationship anyway, not grasping the danger of the decision. While her story is intense, her tone is kind and her tips are resourceful. She’s full of insight both on this podcast episode and in her new book Eris Rising.

Though her story brought tears to my eyes, we also had a ton of laughs. Please listen and if you like it…rate, review and subscribe. You leaving a review helps us with our podcast ranking.
