Being in the group today offered me a moment in gratitude and accomplishment.  As Sue spoke quietly, softly walking the group through a guided visualization, I relished in the experience.  Alternating between closed eyes, were I felt my body resting into a giant and strong lotus leaf; and then opened eyes, witnessing the girl’s expressions, their body postures and the quality of feeling in the room.  My eyes welled up and I felt grateful for all I have learned in my education.  I also felt gratitude for the feild of art therapy and the gifts it continues to offer me as a student and now practitioner, moments of tenderness and sweetness and vulnerability. 

Thank you.
