Ruth is Back!!!!

Hello Friends of G.P.S.,

It’s Andrea here enjoying my Friday here at Green Planet.
I just wanted to share with all of you how I was lucky enough to
start out my day with a one on one intensive with our beautiful
spirit of a house guest, Ruth Hellinger-Dieterle. I just recently
had the pleasure of meeting Ruth for the first time as I missed her
on her last visit with us. So I just wanted to say a big “Thank You”
to Ruth for my session, it was very much needed and appreciated.

Now I would like to take this time to invite all of you to
Ruth’s Healing Circle – The Reconnection, to be held here
tomorrow March 23rd from 12 pm – 2 pm. Please take advantage of
this opportunity while Ruth is in town to come experience one
of her healing circles for yourself.

To register call (832)231-1935 or email
