Autumn Journey for Women

Journey with the Chakras

Women’s circles evoke a sense of sisterhood,
and also a feeling of being in a maternal space.
There is a deep sense of being connected to one another, at an archetypal level.

~Jean Shinoda Bolen


Gather online with kindred spirits drawn to the practice of turning in, and seeing what comes, and allowing that to be, and holding compassion for oneself and others in an increasingly rich and connected online journey through the body’s energy centers, letting them speak into our lives–past, present and future.

Find out more from past participants.

Circle completes: The week of December 18 with the light of the Full Moon as we approach Winter Solstice/Longest Night.

30 Days without Facebook

I love reading that friends are taking Facebook sabbaticals. Their choice reminds me of mine in June, and reminds me of the choice in everything, and the spaciousness too.

Observing desire
without acting on it
enlarges our freedom
to choose
we live.

~Tara Brach


We came to Vermont for the clean air, the heightened perspective, the depth of thought and consciousness.

We gave up cable long before we arrived.

Sexiest Pajamas

Girls. Role Models. 70s.

Kelly & Lila

When I was a girl, we moved from the East Coast to the Rockies when I was still a Brownie. My new best friend and nextdoor neighbor Liz wasn’t a Girl Scout, she was a Southern Baptist.  Liz went to her church with her family, and I rode the school bus with my younger sisters to another church while our parents slept in.

It had a green leather cover and a tie dye label that (still) reads: KELLY SALASIN–in capitals–which I spelled out, letter by letter, and then printed, with my very first label maker.

Ruth was my favorite book. I read it again and again. Just saying Ruth releases a…
