Terry Hershey is an inspirational speaker, humorist, author, organizational consultant and designer of sanctuary gardens who has been featured on The Hallmark Channel, CNN, PBS and NPR. Terry holds a mirror up to our fast-forward, disconnected lives and offers us the power of pause - the wisdom of slowing down and the permission to take an intentional Sabbath moment to regain emotional and spiritual balance - to find the sacred in every single day. People who love this world, people who pay attention, are gardeners, whether or not they have ever picked up a trowel. Because gardening is not just about digging. Gardening is about cherishing. And to cherish, one must be present. Terry talks about opening our heart to the rhythms of the garden. Learning to practice the sacrament of the blessed present. Working to embrace the demanding marriage of loving and losing. Cultivating appreciation for ordinary gifts of grace, the value of solitude, and the healing power of nature. Terry’s stories will lead you to nurture your soul and renew your sense of what it means to live fully alive.
