The articles in EVOLVING are not meant to represent any form of medical or psychiatric care. No portion of the publication may be reproduced without express written permission from the publisher. Distribution by PDS, Inc.

The inspiration for "The Seed of Life" came from Tammy’s desire to portray that what we put into our bodies creates the true essence of who we are. In having strong roots you create a firm foundation to stand upon, and by reaching for pure nourishment you create the natural flow and rhythm of life. The goal is finding a perfect balance. Plant the seeds, nourish the body and find peace within. Tammy is available for gallery showings and inspirational speaking. She is also co-owner of At The Healing Place in Liberty, MO.
