Patty and Bruce

My dear friend Patty Marsette and her husband Bruce lost their home and most of their belongings in the recent Santa Cruz fire.  Both of them have spent their lives helping to heal others through their various professions.  As a Marriage and Family Therapist, Patty has been working with children in a school setting, as well treating trauma in her private practice She has given so much of herself in the service of others.  Bruce has used his gifts to serve others as well.  He combines ancient vocal techniques of overtone singing with the beautiful tone of crystal bowls in his therapeutic sound work.  Their lives have been a dedicated service to others and we have the opportunity to return the gift. Their cozy home in the mountains was a retreat and very special place for them. The loss is unimaginable.  If you would like to donate to a very deserving couple to help them get back on their feet, it would be much appreciated.
