About this Course
Set a Pretty Table
52 Weeks of Enthusiasm and Nourishment and Thoughtful Intention for Tending the Hearth you call Home.
Within the very word Hearth , we find Heart and Art ~ (heart)h and he(art)h
Set A Pretty Table will inspire you through the 52 weeks of tending the hearth, (heart)h, (he(art) with a simple, enthusiastic reflection, tip or suggestion for each week to support you to create an atmosphere in the home that reflects your values...
- Every Sunday you receive an inspiration, suggestion, tip or reflection.
- A private meeting place to connect and share over the topic each week
The messages encourage and inspire you to take simple steps to bring beauty and rhythm to your life in very simple ways. They will inspire you to look within, as well as to stretch yourself outward to try new things: to paint, draw, color, sing, model or become more aware of the natural rhythms surrounding you.
Call it "Where the rubber meets the road," the way to put into practice what you hold dear. Simple. Slow. Satisfyingly. Finding beauty, truth and goodness in the art of the everyday.
Each week brings its own unique and distinct inspiration.
I invite you to join this community for the next 52 weeks.
"the ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest." ~ Thomas Moore
I was inspired to create this community, by the notion that it is attention to the little things in life that count. That the little things matter the most. The ordinary arts.
That's why I am calling it Set a Pretty Table.
A table is a place where we come together to nourish ourselves.
To set a pretty table is to make an effort to bring rhythm, beauty and our love, manifest as attention, to the moment.
Each person's perspective of beauty is unique. It is limitless, full of possibility.
Beauty shows up in the small, simple touches, as well as the grandiose and passionate statements.
Beauty, and love, are everywhere.
This course is meant as an inspiration to bring it to the table.
Both literally and figuratively.
As individuals. As parents. As teachers. As caregivers. As grandparents. As hearth tenders. As heart tenders. As artists. As soulful beings. As human beings.
When we approach our days with this in mind, we are creating mindfulness. It helps us to become more present in the moment.
Join a community of hearth tenders and home makers to journey around the year together with 52 weeks of Set a Pretty Table.
