Welcome

I am a focusing trainer, practicing artist, and avid walker in the woods. I live here in Vermont, off the grid, blessedly surrounded by the waters of Stickney Brook and the Forests of West Dummerston. Focusing is the practice of staying in one's direct experiencing and listening without judgement or agenda to what arises in the "body in situation" in the present moment.  If whatever comes is welcomed with interested curiosity and gentle awareness, and is allowed to move at its own pace, old patterns can shift, and new things begin to grow. For more information on Focusing go to http://www.focusing.org/  Consider my website your invitation. I open my studio to you and it, in turn, opens out into the foothills of vermont.  Come join me as we combine focusing, Artmaking, and Nature to celebrate and deepen our relationship with the mystery of life.

Discover Hidden Gifts, Inside and Out

Huts have been spruced up, new paths cleared, and stone steps built to lead you to the brook.


There is a piano in the main lodge and a full  kitchen with its own refrigerator in the studio. We have new solar panels to add to our off the  grid haven.


Join a small group and learn from others, doing  together, in the presence of nature, what we can't do alone!! See the list of coming attractions below to sign up for the event(s) that speaks to you! Or search the gallery and find the image that asks you to take it home. Images of my newest Art Work have been posted in the galleries under current work.
