Tools of the Heart was born out of its creator’s wish; to help young children develop a stronger sense of self in order to find the calm, the strenght, the confidence and the solutions that emerge from within.
Crafted by a trio extraordinaire of complementary professionals, comes the first fruit of their collaboration; the book collection! Set in a visual and literary universe created with the intention of making children feel good, each story explores a theme which aims at fostering children’s inner resourcefulness and resilience!

Patrick Arguin has nurtured a life-long passion for illustration, and since 1998, has developed a solid experience as a graphic designer. But Patrick had another passion growing: humans and their well-being! His desire to help others, especially children, was the driving force in conceiving «Tools of the Heart». He now shares his time between his work as a Reiki Master, schoolyard educator, and the preparation of the «Tools of the Heart» workshops.
