I love to connect with kindred spirits – artists, healers, spiritual teachers, makers of sacred tools and craft suppliers. My list here has some of my favorite products and resources… you’ll find suggested books, links to events, educational or training opportunities, retreats and more.  I receive no money or gifts for these recommendations – I simply like to share the great stuff I find!
