Let Go and Let it Grow-June Musings-Integrative Healing Arts Studio

June Blessings! May is always such a busy time of change and transformation, I’ve just spent the past couple weeks moving the studio and I haven’t had much time for the Spring garden chores. As I wandered my garden the other day I stopped to reflect upon this particular area where I never really did much with. It seems everything I tried to put here did poorly, but now I noticed the way the lambs ears and echinacea have spread around on their own. The anise hyssop also re-seeded and soon there will be mounds of pretty purple and silver flowers in this spot. All of a sudden I can see the beginning of a new garden. I can imagine putting in stepping stones between the plants and adding some garden sculptures, bird baths, and feeders, and tucking in a few more flowers and herbs here and there. Just like that there will be another beautiful corner to find peace in…and here I thought I was out of room for more! So as I often love to do, compare the garden to life, I reflect upon how often we plan things out and put so much thought and detail into the way we think things should be that we often miss out on how beautiful something can turn out if we just let it go for a bit. Sometimes we put a plant in a certain area where we want it, where we think it will look good but it’s just not right, it won’t grow or thrive. Most times it’s not the plant but the location, the soil, not enough sun, or too much; when a plant is allowed to spread to an area where they find comfort they will be stronger, healthier, more resistant to disease and parasites, so will we…The most wonderful things can happen when you keep an open mind and heart so let go and let it grow!

I am officially in my new location now at 546 Penn Ave. I’m just a hop, skip, and a jump from my old space but what an exciting new world it is over here and so full of possibilities, I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds!  I’ve started to schedule some classes and events for June and I’ve listed them here, schedules are subject to change so make sure to check the events on the right side of web page for the most up to date information. During June, and possibly the rest of the market season, I will have open hours on Sunday mornings for those that would like to shop the healing boutique, pick up gift certificates, or custom blends. The hours will be in the range of 11ish to 12:30 ish and I’ll post the hours beforehand. If you are out strolling the West Reading Farmers Market make sure to stop in and say hi! To get to the studio you would enter through the front door at 546 (Double Click Computers), go through a second door that will lead you up the steps to the studio which will be straight ahead.
