I have now enjoyed two wonder-full writer’s days at Susie’s home. I imagine that like most people, my first experience began with some trepidation. Am I really a writer? Do I belong here? Will anything come? Will I have the guts to share it? Will it be awful?

But Susie’s great hospitality, continuous encouragement, infectious spirit and generous comments put me quickly at ease. She skillfully addressed the negative thoughts and primed our pumps with intriguing exercises. I sensed a shift for everyone around the table. Each session was comprised of different participants, but we were all pleasantly surprised, and moved – by what came out of us, and out of each other.

The quiet afternoon allowed me to concentrate on a project that has been beckoning for some time. I ended the day invigorated, itching to come back for more. Which I did. Which I will again, and soon.

The mood of warm, open listening is a gift. The space is beautiful and comfortable. Nourishment on all levels. Connectedness, laughter, tears and all is possible.

Blessings on you and your healing OASIS, my dear Susie. Your creativity and love flow through all aspects of the day. You let us “be still” and find treasures “here… and here… and here…”
