Making Space for Yourself:

A guide to getting what you need


 

What are you  here to do?

What is the contribution that only you can make during your limited time here on earth?

Making Space for Yourself, the first of our “Drawing From the Well” series, is intended to encourage you to find your own unique way of contributing to the world.

Refreshingly honest and to-the-point, Making Space for Yourself is equal parts illuminating literary tool and contemplative art piece that provides the reader with a healthy dose of inspiration. Its unvarnished thoughts about life, self-care, and what it means to be human will help readers gain a deeper level of understanding about themselves, the world, and their relationships within the world.

This little book is simply lovely. The meditative imagery, empowering statements, and evocative questions weave together seamlessly, giving us, the readers, permission to pause. During an uneasy time in our shared humanity, this pause is necessary, so that we can move forward and act with intention in our greater communities. I will definitely use this book with my clients and, also, with myself!

Making Space for Yourself is an inspiration. The uplifting words, filled with wisdom and thoughtfulness, motivate me to be honest with my gifts and share them with others. The enlivening drawings match the words elegantly, and remind me to be creative and trust my imagination. I look forward to the creation of the whole "Drawing From the Well" series to give to friends and family.
