Empowerment begins with self-love, self-forgiveness, and affirming life-giving thoughts to ourselves and others. By helping ourselves we can help others more and contribute to a better world.
Loss and change are universal experiences that present unique challenges of coping, letting go, and taking daily steps to recover. I invite you to visit my Blog, Meditation and Loss and Recovery Model where you will find resources for inspiration. My published and co-authored books are also helpful tools for personal development and self-discovery.

"Each man lives love in his limited fashion and does not seem to relate the resultant confusion and loneliness to his lack of knowledge about love "-Leo Buscaglia
This class is a great opportunity to learn, share and grow in our understanding of a topic that affects us in all areas of our life. My class will be offered at Millsaps College Community Enrichment Series Fall 2019
"Transformational Writing with Dr. Farish has truly been inspirational and soul revealing. She is an amazing professor and her class will provide a beautiful community of writers, creating a safe place for you to discover who you are as a writer, what you want to write, and then how to go about it at your pace. No regrets whatsoever!" -Aida S.

HEALING ARTS PROJECTS
Healing Arts Projects projects enable us to use our expressive creative skills and talents to enrich lives and serve our community. In partnership with the Mississippi Arts Commission, we hosted the PEP For Angels 'Prime Time Family Time' storytelling series and the PEP For Angels Cultural Arts Festival 'Prime Time Show Time' for children, family, staff and caregivers at UMMC Children's Hospital. These projects were entertaining, uplifting, and provided educational and cultural enriching performances by a variety of artists who were truly engaging and provided hands-on interaction. The theme, Laughter Is Healing was evident as smiles were seen on the faces of many who attended these events. Evaluations proved successful with many feeling a better connection to the community. Testimonials from some of the Artists are highlighted on Healing Arts Projects web page. I am offering a free 30-minute Discovery Session to explore your interests and desires.
SPIRIT OF LOVE PROJECT
My new project, In the Spirit of Love, is a collection of anonymous reflections, experiences, and insights about Love from people around the world. Share and submit your thoughts. The first 25 people who submit will be gifted free copies of my book, The Long Journey Home.
