A place to come for resources, support and inspiration for nurturing your contemplative life.
Drawing from the world’s wisdom traditions, Spirit Garden offers programs and materials that tend to your soul.
In the Celtic tradition, there is a beautiful saying, Anam Cara, which means ‘Soul Friend.’ At Spirit Garden, we seek to offer programs, resources, and reflections that befriend the soul. Here is a little bit about what we offer:
Ritual & Ceremony
Across traditions, ritual and ceremony is used to connect to our inner life and honour our life transitions. Ritual and Ceremony is a language of the soul and creates sacred space. At Spirit Garden, we offer support for incorporating ritual and ceremony into your daily living and special moments, whether it is blessing a new home, a baby, a retirement, creating a wedding ceremony, or celebrating life.
Spiritual practices can offer a foundation and framework that supports our daily living. From walking in nature, to meditation, prayer and inspirational reading, spiritual practices nurture and enliven the soul. At Spirit Garden, we incorporate contemplative practices into all our offerings and hope that they will support you in ways that sooth the soul, spark creativity and deepen gratitude, peace and presence.

Yes! I’d love to try a free sample of Spirit Garden Reflections, called The Power of Words.
Our on-line courses and products feature interactive materials that help you tend to your soul. Whether it is through journaling practices, creative activities or spiritual practices, you will find something here that engages you. We also delight in building community and learning together with on-line book studies and discussions. We look forward to having you join us soon!
A book study is a way to have delicious conversation about things that are meaningful. Periodically, Kathy hosts a book study through Zoom and would be delighted to have you join.
Journaling can be a path of discovery, one that helps us listen to our soul. In our shop, courses and blog posts you will find downloadable journals with questions and prompts for exploration.
Aristotle once said that the soul never thinks without an image. We express these images through music, poetry, pottery, art, photography, writing and more. In our courses, we invite the creative expression of the soul.

Last year, I received these encouraging words in a Christmas card from a woman that I have never met in person: "Keep inspiring the world." This woman had purchased my Heart Note cards a few years ago and we had talked on the phone a few times and exchanged a few...
