THE SATORI STORY
Satori Expressions offers a full line of fine art greeting cards with original sentiments that touch the spiritual nature of our humanness. Cards are vibrant in color that evokes emotion.
MICHELLE GROVE-REILAND, OWNER/CREATOR
"Since childhood, I have loved making cards and giving them voice through my sentiments. May this legacy live on through this card line called Satori Expressions. I believe that giving and receiving a card provides an intimate moment in time between two people on conscious and unconscious levels …connecting their sharing of spirit.
While searching for a name for my card line, I came across the word Satori and loved it. To my surprise, its meaning is derived from enlightenment or an “AHA moment".
And so, it is my intention that Satori Expressions live up to its name offering an expression within…that has been waiting for words."
