You might wonder why there is a sea star here. Many species of sea stars, also known as starfish, have the ability to grow back an arm if they lose one and some species can even regenerate an entire body if there is just one bit of arm remaining. The point being – they get hurt and they re-invent themselves. They regenerate and are renewed. That’s what we do here. Provide tools for regeneration and renewal, through my blog, newsletter, services and events. This is a website for writers, creative spirits, contemplative souls, and anyone interested in the simple life. Join us, won’t you?


Spiritual Direction

Deepen your relationship with your Higher Power through the experience of Spiritual Direction. Through a deep and mindful listening there is a place to share your sacred stories and increase awareness of spirituality on this journey we call life.


I am an award - winning writer, spiritual director, retreat facilitator & expressive arts educator and lover of the simple life, based on the Connecticut shoreline.


Join me when we gather again for a Creating A Writing Life Event, an Expressive Art workshop, or other group experience for writers.  Sign up to receive the Creating A Writing Life newsletter for updates on events.
