Awakening the Wise Woman

What happens to us after we turn fifty? or sixty? or seventy? Do we become more or less of the women we have learned to be? Does being a “crone” mean fading into the background and watching the world turn around us? Not necessarily.

In classical mythology older women (crones) were revered as the keepers of wisdom, knowledge, and resilience. This series of workshops is inspired by the idea that older women have gifts and abilities that are only attainable through experience. When we know what we know, and know what we don’t know, that is wisdom.

In these brief workshops we will explore the often ignored realities of wise women. We are all wise in our own way, yet we still need encouragement, and role models. You will name at least one older woman—from history, mythology or real life—who inspires you. And this woman will be your guide toward a more fulfilling experience as a wise woman yourself. 

Possible activities to be decided upon as a group: stories and readings from wise women, guided meditation, gentle movement, journaling, storytelling, collage making, other forms of expression that you choose.

Five Saturdays in January 2021

9-11:00 a.m, online via zoom

Cost: $10 session or $40 for all five

Making Connections

From the moment when I first stepped onto a yoga mat I knew I had found my path. The most profound, yet simple, lesson I learned in that college yoga class was how to breathe. Not just the science of how to breathe, but the awareness of how to breathe. I would park far away from the university so I could walk down a path through the woods and beside the duck pond, each step coordinated with either an inhale or an exhale. I took my time getting to class. I was learning HOW to breathe.

Several years later, as a yoga teacher and studio owner, I zeroed in on the theme of mind-body-spirit connection. Intuitively, I always knew these “parts” were intricately connected. I felt it in my bones and in my soul. My first newsletter was called “Mind, Body, Spirit Connections.”

Today, several more years later, my husband and I have come full circle, back to this theme. He has spent the last two decades learning and practicing neurofeedback, while I have continued my yoga training and teaching practice. I have always known that we could “do this together.”

So, here we are, on a new but familiar path, doing what we love and believe in. Along the way life gives us hints and signals and when we finally listen, really listen, we see that what we have been looking for was right there all along. Please join us on our continued journey.
