I want to thank all of you who participated in this contest and was deeply moved by the wonderful quotes that you sent me. Whenever I hold one of these giveaways it is always SO difficult to have to choose between all the amazing folks who enter their names hopefully in the contest. And this time was no exception.

However, one name literally LEAPT out of the sorting hat and that was a woman named Grace Morningstar. I’m really thrilled to offer her a chance to participate in this fabulous workshop event.

I asked everyone who participated to offer a grief or creativity quote and this is the one that Grace shared with me:

 “Telling and grieving resurrect us from the dead zone. They allow us to leave the death cult of secrets behind. We can grieve and grieve hard, and come out of it tear stained, rather than shame stained. We can come out deepened, fully acknowledged, and filled with new life.” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes
