This Way to Fresh Water

-Written by Hayley Dodd, Springhouse Adult Programming Participant- When I first found Springhouse, I was deeply lost. Soul-level lost. And too numbed by long-ingrained habits to even realize how far from myself I’d strayed. But I showed up one dark winter night for Jenny Finn’s Shadow course for adults. And the shell I’d been hiding in, began to crack. Here, I found a loving group of peers all committed to self-discovery, growth, finding and living in authentic meaning and purpose.

And just a week prior, December 28, 2018, my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
