Women In Transition Workshop

“I am trying to work through the process of transitioning to an empty nest, in the near future, as a single parent of two young adults.  The Women In Transition Workshop, facilitated by Laura Tryon Jennings, was exactly what I needed at exactly the right moment in time.  Each exercise was a new discovery of thoughts and emotions that somehow get lost in the everyday business of living.  Laura brings warmth and understanding to the discussions that follow in a safe and accepting environment.” ~ Donna B.

Hidden Gifts of Remembrance

“I created this tree as part of the Healing Arts Workshop facilitated by Laura Tryon Jennings at Hope Floats Wellness Center, which was a very positive experience.  Having lost my Dad suddenly after a traumatic accident, this tree represents a peaceful place.  The tree is my family.  Despite its biggest limb being broken, it grows, with strong roots and shiny bark that brings to mind dreams and happier times.   The swirling “branches” are symbols of the cycle of death and rebirth, and the small yellow flowers are harbingers of hope of brighter days to come.”  ~Jennifer H.
