Welcome to Art to Heart Counseling –
Happy Spring!

Grow your Garden

What is this faithful process of spirit and seed
that touches empty ground and makes it rich again?
Its greater workings I cannot claim to understand.

I only know that in its care, what has seemed dead
is dead no longer, what has seemed lost, is no longer lost,
that which some have claimed impossible, is made clearly possible, and what ground is fallow is only resting – resting and waiting for the blessed seed to arrive on the wind with all Godspeed.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Spring is the time to plant the seeds and small shoots that you want to reap at Harvest time. What are the ideas, plans, changes, commitments you called in at Winter Solstice or New Year that are ready for planting? What nutrients are needed in order to grow. What weeds need pulling to prepare the ground for your new plantings?

This is the time to embody what you want and need. Come join me in a series of short workshops designed to help you connect more deeply with your heart’s desire.

* Self Care for the Caregivers – Tending to Your Inner Life
* Healing the Fatherline – Manifest Your Dreams
* Exploring Your Inner Cast of Characters beginning July
* New Spiral of Healing Group beginning September

If you know of anyone wanting a holistic approach to change, please forward this newsletter to them. I look forward to serving you in the future. And remember referrals give you discounted groups!

Blessings for a lively spring,
