Awaken: Self-Care Retreat Reflection

The day was spent meditating, eating nourishing food, conversing, practicing yoga, crying, conversing some more, doing facials and self-massages and laughing. I could spend more time describing the facts of what we did, but I don’t think that would do justice to the space we created. The rest was external so it could be internal, the self-care was outward so it could be inward. There is something about doing this communally which binds you together and reminds you that you’re not alone. To hear the words of inner wisdom from women who have seen and done more than I, confirmed that we are all humans, who share the need for Love, who seek for peace and vitality for our lives.

A Taste of Alive and Well

Alive and Well Women’s Open House and Introductory Workshop was a total success! On Saturday, February 11 women from all walks of life gathered together for a taste of the loving, empowering, and compassionate sisterhood that Alive and Well Women aims to foster. We met at John Aaroe Group in Pasadena and enjoyed a delicious brunch provided by True Food Kitchen Pasadena.

Transformed by Community

At these events, we do not need to bring anything except ourselves. When we walk out the door we know our worth. We know that our worth is not dependent on how many people we say hello to and or make an effort to be intentional with. This is a place where self-acceptance happen because we are given to place to come and be as we are.

Saying Yes to Something New: Summer Drum Circle

Watching the women get up and literally dance to the beat of their own drum, leave inhibitions aside, and give in to the childlike nature that is so easily lost amidst the demands of our daily “adult” lives was so invigorating. I felt moved by these women that I did not know minutes prior, and felt such a sense of community in the short time we spent together.
