Work with Me

"I recommend with joy Tom Zuba's exquisite, perceptive, and profound celebration of life, Permission to Mourn... it's about becoming aware, experiencing the enormity, power, and grace of your life, and creating with love each moment.  This is what we born to do." ~ Gary Zukav, author of the The Seat of the Soul 

"Tom, You are a special spirit in the world of person-centered expressive arts!  Blessings on your journey!" ~ Natalie Rogers, Ph.D., author of The Creative Connection for Groups
