She travels internationally giving workshops for children emphasing the connection between nature and creativity inspiring imagination, Teaching the Art of Storytelling and also Doorway to your Imagination, A wonderful Adventure into Illustrative Story Writing. On a personal note: I wish to publicly thank Janine for her generous donations of her beautiful art - what I call the Affirmation Healing Tree. It is taken from her children's book The Magic Gown. It is a picture of a huge tree with branches and in the tree trunk there is a blue doorway which leads into a lovely space with a table, flowers, etc. and chairs. There is a character Steevan, the Dancing Healing Tree man who comforted a little sad girl in the story. I took these beautiful paintings and gifted them to some of the chemo patients in my classes at the hospital and they just loved them. We all imagined that we could go into this private wonderful place and do our affirmations for healing and health. Some of the patients came up with wondrous and creative ideas and I created a beautiful soft, comfortable arm chair with a foot rest where I could go, relax, meditate and affirm for healing and health for myself and everyone in the group. Janine is gifting some more and I am so excited to share them with these lovely people who are taking chemo treatments.Thank you again Janine from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and absolutely fitting and unique Affirmation Healing Tree paintings. I think Janine calls them the Healing Tree and I have added the word Affirmation. Please visit her website www.themagicgown.com and/or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there!
