Welcome to the spring issue of Holistic Therapist Magazine. One of my favourite things about creating the magazine is how each issue evolves and changes shape from our starting point coming up with themes and concepts, working out what should go into the magazine, all the way through to when it goes to the printers and eventually drops through your letterbox.
When we started this issue, the underlying theme was Flourish, but it turned out to be about something much more than that. Yes, we have some brilliant articles, sound advice and new ideas to help you build your business and make the most of your life. Yes, we have the latest research and guidance from some of the leading practicioners and experts available. Yes, we have personal insights, new products and some interesting reading, but we have so much more than that.
It’s about the human spirit, generosity and, above all, resilience. You’ll find stories from people who experienced setbacks, but didn’t let that stop them. Some, like Gary Sutherland, who gave up on a stressful existence for something calmer, or Evelyn Hertzog, who started as a landscape architect but now runs a wellness retreat with healing dogs in Brazil, changed their plans and changed their lives. The amazing Stacy Hevener-Moss lost both her home and much of her business to a California wild fire. It’s difficult to imagine how the pain and upheaval that must involve, but her story of how she’s rebuilding her business is truly inspiring.
We all face the odd setback or we wander from our intended path, but our stories show that you’ll learn a lot on your journey and will eventually reach your destination. Whatever life throws at you, you’ll continue to shine through!
