Resistance

Surrender, by Maureen Doyle, MAT

Surrender, by Maureen Doyle, MAT

Surrender is not a word that I like to use. It conjures up thoughts of giving in, someone else taking control, not winning. I am a strong person and I used to believe that to surrender was a sign of weakness and that was the last thing that I want to be seen as – weak.

New version of a Good Day, by Susan Beyler

New version of a Good Day, by Susan Beyler

This January I started a gratitude jar – writing what I was grateful for each day and putting the note in a jar. 

After a short while, it stopped feeling very helpful.  At my age (old) I am very aware of being grateful; as us geezers say, ‘I’m grateful for any day above ground’.

Kabbalah Gratitude for The Estuary, by Molly Brown, Guest Blogger and School of Healing Arts Student

This is a letter written to Estuary Founder and Executive Director, Susan Austin-Crumpton from Molly Brown, her student of many years:

I have felt compelled to write you all morning so that’s what I’m doing. I just have to share my experience with you and the second phase of what I believe are new beginnings.  Last night when I got home I felt the most profound peace, warmth and gratitude that I have had in a long time thanks to The Estuary.
