Gate Lady Publishing was formed in January, 2010, to publish the book "Opening the Gates of the Heart: A Journey of Healing." This is a book that author Carolyn CJ Jones wrote and photographed to reflect her personal journey from great angst, resentment, and bitterness, to forgiveness and inner peace. The book was successfully launched on October 8, 2010. Since its publication, "Opening the Gates of the Heart" has won multiple awards for its photographic images and inspirational verses alike.

In 2012, Carolyn expanded her business to include inspirational speaking and coaching services. Using her book as a guide, she presents workshops on forgiveness. Her interactive talk gives the audience the tools to move from emotional turmoil, filled with grudges, regrets, and remorse, to a place of self-love and forgiveness of not only themselves, but others as well.

Carolyn CJ Jones also spends time coaching individuals to find peace in their lives, and offers packages for her sessions. More information about her, her book, and her story are available on her website at www.carolyncjjones.com. She is available for comments at 415-883-8325.
