Getting to the Matter of the Heart

Whitewater, WI (July 6, 2022) - Susanna Farms in Lake Villa, IL is hosting a personal growth workshop called Getting to the Matter of the Heart. The event will be facilitated by Denise Maple from Live Life Spiritual Direction, LLC of Whitewater, WI on Saturday, July 30, 2022, from 10:00-12:00.

The workshop focuses on opening one's heart for a greater expression of life. In our modern world, we are often taught to look to the physical and shut off the invisible whisperings of our hearts and desires. When we don't pay attention to our heart and only listen to our head, it can lead to malaise, illness, and general dissatisfaction with life. This workshop is perfect for anyone that feels that their heart is closed. Maybe stress and past disappointments have led to conscious or unconscious loss or inability to receive love and support. According to Denise Maple, "Our heart is a beautiful, intelligent guidance system. If you think it has failed you in the past, I encourage you to rethink that. Your heart knows what it wants. Perhaps, historically, we have misinterpreted the steps to get what we want."

About Susanna Farms

Susanna Farms began in the 1930s when Steven Jennings (SJ) and Mae O'Bryan purchased several parcels of property in Lake Villa. They named their land Susanna Farms after each of their mothers, Susan and Anna. Fast forward to the early 2000s when a few of their grandchildren reimagined Susanna Farms on part of the original land as a Fall Festival for families to come and enjoy this land. The farm closed in 2014 and was reopened in 2019, this time focused on equine-assisted activities, small events, camps, and more for year-round fun. Today, the farm is owned and operated by Laura and Elizabeth Heffernan, granddaughters of SJ and May O'Bryan.
