Spring Renewal and Celebration

Spring has arrived

After a long winter where it seemed that life was lived indoors, it has become clear that spring has arrived with warmth, flowers blooming and growth all around. It was the perfect time for people to come out for the first Messages to the Heart Book Launch held at the beautiful Hotel Indigo in downtown Asheville.  What a great event.  We discussed how our passions led to the creation of the book, did a short reading,  and heard from others how the book has started to create a positive impact in people’s lives.  One guest told us that she was amazed when another member of her weekly discussion group came in and read the following to share with the group: She recognized it immediately as coming from Messages to the Heart. This is the passage:

There is a flow to life

It is hard to draw water from a stone but when you are near an ocean, it is easy. Know the difference between the people who are stones and oceans in your life. The stones will feel strained, you will work hard to get very little. When you are near oceans, there will be flow, ease, you won’t have to work so hard, things happen on their own. There is a flow to life if you get out of your own way. As long as you know what you want, don’t spend too much time near the stones. Go to the oceans. Even if the stones seem appealing, you will know if it always feels like an uphill battle. Drop your preconceived notions of who the right people should be in your life. Go towards what feels good, and spend time there. Trust.



More events and readings

To celebrate, to empower and inspire you


Trust, flow, letting go, choices based on awareness.  These are some of the Messages to the Heart that we are passionate about sharing with you.  We look forward to more events and readings, to celebrate, to empower and inspire you.  The next event is a pre mother’s day afternoon tea and book signing at Chiifferobe Home and Garden in the beautiful mountain town of Black Mountain on Friday, April 25th, 4-6 p.m. and the Grand Opening of Elise’s Art Studio in the Whitespace Gallery at the Wedge Building, Level 2 in Asheville’s vibrant River Arts District, Thursday, May 8th, 5-8p.m.
