Open Your Heart To Love
Hello dear friends – well, here it is again – the wonderful program based on Kathryn Woodward Thomas profound and insightful book of the same name.

This is an opportunity to go gently and deeply inside and release all the old patterns that create hurt and sadness around love and partnership – truly a journey to love – powerful and supportive to do in a group.

Don’t let your love life go around the same old circuits, or have you given up on love altogether?

We have a great group forming, and just 3 places left – so if you have been thinking about this program – jump in now! –

New 8 wk course begins April 3rd:  – that’s next week! cost $250

Here is what some past participants have said  ”  I want to share the profound and healing experience I had participating in Grace Underwood’s Workshop ‘Calling in the One.’ Grace’s deep wisdom, clarity and gentle love created a space where I felt safe and understood as I worked through processes I thought I had dealt with years ago. The layers of being, loving and the ensuing wounds along the way were revealed, shared and the healing begun anew. The warmth and support that developed in the group has changed our lives. We have laughed and cried, sung, been vulnerable and real with each other…and held each other in a sacred space. We have journeyed Calling in the One… who resides within our own Hearts. I recommend THE WORKSHOP to all…even to the men in the community…the heart in all of us is wounded…and the healing is our life’s work. What joy awaits/awakens for us all.” (JD )

“After we finished the course I felt so confident, open and receptive that I actually called in The man. He is fully available!  And I could rave on about his positive attributes…..   And I know what I have done to deserve him, so I can fully appreciate his presence in my life!  Thank you Grace for your wonderful support (DA)</i>

Do come and join us – with love, Grace

On tuesday, I came home from 5 days away.  My dog  Maisie had gone to stay with a good friend while I was gone.  My beloved 18 year old Tabby cat, Edward, stayed at home, while a whole team of friends who loved him, came by several times a day to feed and pet him.  On Tuesday morning, I got a call from my friend to say Edward wont come out from under the couch.  I laughed.  When I got home in the afternoon, I found a sick and bewildered cat.  A trip to the vet, and he was diagnosed with kidney failure.  Blood tests showed a urea level of 91.  The normal level is 3-10.  Most cats die at about 25.  He was dying – the vet couldn’t understand that he was still alive.  I was grief stricken.  That evening I had a new Calling in The One group starting.  I couldnt stop the flow of tears…. and in that vulnerability, hearts opened in the group and people connected in a way that might have taken much longer.  Today is Saturday and Edward is still alive, very weak, wobbly and confused, but still connecting with me with love and a light in his eyes.  He is not eating or drinking.  I have told him I will be OK and that he can go when he is ready.  I have been thinking about what this rare, gentle, intuitive and aware Being has meant to me and I wrote a memorial for his grave.  Here it is.

Edward – Rare, Aware Cat and Extraordinary Being of Light

My companion, friend and spiritual teacher.

He taught me about acceptance –  To be peaceful with whatever is –  or isn’t.

He taught me about love – to smile and purr and connect deeply – to love and accept everybody just as they are, to cuddle, to touch and to love being touched –and to be grateful. His gentle spirit and charm always won hearts.

He taught me about Presence – to live in a state of deep, peaceful awareness, effortless ease, and magical Presence- and to be happy for no good reason at all. He was always right here, right now with a wisdom deeper than my understanding and a purring peacefulness. I could just fall into his eyes.

He taught me about fun – to be ready to play and enjoy whatever is happening.  To go from total rest to warp speed in a nanosecond – and to never underestimate how fast he was! And oh! – what a footballer he was – his fancy footwork was an art to behold.

He taught me to ask for what you want, clearly and cleanly

And he taught me about complaining – by never, never complaining – even though his hips must have been painful for most of his life, and towards the end, through his quiet acceptance of the illness that took his life.

I love you Dear Edward. You will always be in my heart. Maisie and I will miss you more that I can say – as will all your friends who love you and who have recognised who you are.

Fly free and joyful dear One

he is unity .. the infinite…formless..no one
