April 2014 – Newsletter excerpts

Dear Reader,

The amazingly huge icicles hanging off the eaves-trough have finally melted, so I’m thinking SPRING…  I want to share a few photos of my garden last year… Could it ever have looked anything like these pictures?



Great books!  I’m often asked about reading material. I read a lot of books and would like to share a few titles I highly recommend for added inspiration, insight and practical help in the journey of being more conscious in our everyday living.

  • When the Past is Present: Healing the Emotional Wounds that Sabotage our Relationships, David Richo
  • Perfect Love – Imperfect Relationships: Healing the Wound of the Heart, John Welwood
  • Parenting Without Power Struggles: Raising joyful, Resilient Kids While Staying Cool, Calm and Connected, Susan Stiffelman
  • Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, Marshall Rosenberg

 “People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have living things about us.” Iris Murdoch


Love and gratitude,
Barbara   xo
