Barbara from Enchanted Acres:
"I created Enchanted Acres to be a special place for women: to relax and have time for themselves; to enjoy quality time with each other – friends, partners, sisters, mothers and adult daughters; to experience the healing and restorative powers of nature; to acknowledge the solace found in simple things; a place to just come and be. Since my epiphany in January of 2007, I have learned about so many ways to live more gently on this earth and want to share these ideas with other women. We need to slow down, simplify, take a step back from technology.
The concept that empty has value is often not accepted nor understood. I first became aware of this when I learned chip carving. I wanted to carve every available space. But then I learned that the area you leave un-carved is as important as what you do carve. It helps show the work. So it is with our time - the quiet time when we’re not being pulled in many different directions with constant distractions - this is when we can think, focus, plan, imagine and dream - which in turn helps to define and give our lives meaning."
