Spark Joy Together: Sorting & Sharing our Stuff community event

It can also bring up feelings and remembrances which is all part of it. It's been SO helpful to be accountable and a great group to be with. Thanks SO much!  Kate S.

For years, I have been helping others to simplify and organize to find more joy in their homes and possessions (and doing it in my own home too).

I wanted to share this joy with others so I offered it to folks at Roots and Wings Yoga and Healing Arts at 317 N. Main St., Natick, MA, in a community event.
