Sit still in a comfortable chair,
close your eyes & do a few deep breathing inhale and exhale
breaths. Imagine you are entering a room - in the room is a chair with
the back to you. Walk into the room and sit opposite the other chair. In

We still have room for one more to join this group of creative women as
we tour and journal our way through the Greek Isles for the Greek Muse
workshop...if you'd like more info at www.permissiongranted.org
