~ Wishing you a beautiful Thanksgiving. May it be a time to reconnect to grace and wholeness and all that which you love most ~
These times seem to oscillate between darkness and confusion, and a most resilient light and hope. I find our work with the girls truly holds this paradox of such vibrant promise for a future filled with possibility, and a great weight of responsibility towards all that lies ahead. I see it in the girls - our meetings have been more filled with tears than usual, and also quicker to dive more fully into the waters together. I see it in my family - Shaye just turned 1 (we did it!!!) and his wonderful innocence amidst smoke filled skies highlight just how complex it is to be alive right now.
We have been loving our 3 East Bay Girls Groups, and are excited to announce we are enrolling a Marin Girls Group now, to start in January 2019. We will also be at the Marin Teen Girls Conference on March 31st. We are also hosting a panel event featuring our oldest teen girls, in April. Juicy details to come.
Sending prayers of healing and support to all those affected by the fires, and anyone feeling disheartened. May we find our way back to love.
