Learn from Pachamama Alliance Journey Leader Rebecca Rogers about the "Women Defenders of the Forest" (Ikiama Nukuriin the Achuar indigenous language) and learn from their example of how to be powerful allies for each other in a global movement of women rising up, finding our voices, and redefining what "women leadership" means in the modern world. This will be an interactive experience to support you in connecting more deeply to yourself, each other, and to your purpose in service to the planet.

Hivery Circle: A Fireside Chat with Chip Conley on WISDOM@WORK: The Making of a Modern Elder

A Fireside Chat with Chip Conley on WISDOM@WORK: The Making of a Modern Elder, Moderated by The Hivery Founder, Grace Kraaijvanger.

ChipConleybook_SQ.jpg

In Chip Conley’s new work WISDOM@WORK: The Making of a Modern Elder, he shares his experiences as a “mentern” (part mentor/part intern) at Airbnb, which inspired him to start a movement to ignite more collaboration between generations, and recognize that wisdom seeking is as important as wisdom keeping. “How do we reframe a lifetime of experience to remain relevant in the modern workplace?” Chip’s experiences at Airbnb give us the answer: become a “Modern Elder,” someone who serves and learns, is mentor and intern, student and sage, all at the same time. Here are just some of the definitions of A Modern Elder that Chip explores in his new work:

What is A Modern Elder?

A Modern Elder is WISE: “Elderly” refers to the years one has lived, but “Elder” refers to what one has done with those years. Modern Elders synthesize their lifetime of experiences into a legacy of wisdom.

A Modern Elder is CURIOUS: Modern Elders cultivate a catalytic curiosity that allows them to look at the world with uncontaminated wonder.

A Modern Elder is ADAPTABLE: The Modern Elder has acquired many skills over time, but most valuable is the skill of mastery, which can be applied to learning new things.

If you want to evolve your wisdom, and tap into your brilliance through the modern elder teachings, join us for this enlivening conversation at The Hivery with mentor, innovator and teacher, Chip Conley.

Don’t hesitate to bring a friend or come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend. Guests will enjoy complimentary lite bites and local wines by Bee Hunter Wine and sips from Living GTS Foods Kombucha.

ALL ARE WELCOME!

Inner Knowing for Creators: From Meditation to Connection with Rosie Acosta

Nothing can compare to a physical face-to-face connection. The feel of a genuine laugh or the satisfaction of sharing ideas in person is far better than reading a text and misunderstanding the intended meaning of the typed message. Meditation can help us explore our inner landscape and create a deep relationship to who we are, but that connection can often get "lost in translation" when we are out in the world. This meditation workshop will explore the relationship between Meditation and Connection and how it is more important now more than ever. Learn how we can utilize this practice to create more union, and community with the people in your life. Learn how to bring the practice outwards once you've gone inward.

The session will inspire participants to realize that we, as women, gatekeepers and entrepreneurs,  are a massive, untapped, global resource needed in this world. The session pulls from indigenous wisdom rooted in sacred experience and generations of lives, modern research, and daily rituals and inspires women entrepreneurs to be part of a circle of sacred sisterhood and ignite their dreams for the collective good.

Unfortunately, most entrepreneurs who speak are following tired formulas for how to present (and sell) and are wildly disconnected from their own authentic voice and point of view. In this dynamic, interactive workshop, you will shift from being an “expert” to being a truly transformational speaker and discover the core components of designing presentations that deliver heaps of value and positively (and radically!) transform your audience's lives.

The Hivery’s Idea to Action:  How to Find More Time and Get it Done: Mini Workshop with Megan Flatt

Find Your Flow. Find More Time. Claim Your Time. You have ideas. Really good ideas. But you are also busy...really busy. Those big ideas, rarely turn into action. That is about to change. We often feel like we don’t have enough time for our big ideas, especially when it comes to starting a whole new project or reinventing part of our lives. This hands-on workshop will give you the tangible steps and principles to uncover all the time you need to accomplish your goals and claim your time. Bring your big ideas and leave with a strategy to make them a reality.

Self-Care and Self-Compassion for Leaders with Anna Kawar

Leadership begins with the self. The lens by which we treat ourselves is the lens by which we treat others. Yet, knowing how to care for ourselves in this fast-paced, rapidly changing world can be difficult. In this lunch session, we will discuss how to realistically care for yourself as a leader and trade resources and practices for genuine self-compassion.

Entrepreneur's Circle: Owning Your Value with Grace Kraaijvanger

HivCircleOpenMic_mar19_KTS_142SQ.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. This month, Grace leads our monthly circle to talk about owning your value.

In this workshop, Grace will lay the money cards on the table and dispel some common myths and patterns that she sees occurring around money, especially from some newer entrepreneurs. She’ll share four money myths that she’s identified, and best practices for how to turn those myths around into valuable truth (and money in the bank). Together, we’ll continue the conversation around money and help each other as a community continue to honor our worth and respect the wisdom and value that each of us bring to the table.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

About Grace Kraaijvanger

Photo Credit: Ana Kamin

Grace Kraaijvanger is the Founder and CEO of The Hivery. She is a visionary entrepreneur, artist, and community-maker who created The Hivery as a realization of her longstanding dream to bring a community of women together in a beautiful space that would inspire and empower them to reach their fullest potential. From the beginning, The Hivery has been a metaphor for so much more than just a physical space; it represents a movement and an elevation of women.

Before launching The Hivery in 2014 and after a decade-long career as a professional ballet and modern dancer in San Francisco, Grace entered into motherhood and began working as a marketing executive for Fortune 500 technology companies. But the unexpected loss of her mother catalyzed her to search for something deeper; her life’s true purpose. On that search she realized there were women, just like her, in pursuit of their next chapter: women who wanted to switch careers, start businesses, go back to work, or change direction to pursue a passion. Coupled with the realization that there was no “space”, both literally and metaphorically, for women to find and create meaningful work outside of “work” norms, she decided to go after her dream and The Hivery was born.

Over the years as The Hivery continues to grow, Grace has discovered much of what she knows to be true about starting and running a business is rooted in dance and artistic expression: the importance of showing up every day and doing the work; surrounding yourself with people who believe in your unique purpose; and leveraging setbacks as invaluable learning tools. “Entrepreneurs are artists of life,” according to Grace.

Grace is a go-to speaker and business mentor who has spoken at high-profile events such as Watermark, The Girls Lounge at Dreamforce, Listen to Your Mother, Woven Women’s Conference, as well as countless Hivery events and gatherings. The Hivery was awarded “Best Office Space in the U.S. and Canada” by Wayfair, Inc. in 2017, and Grace and The Hivery have been featured in outlets such as Domino, San Francisco Chronicle, Marin Independent Journal, Huffington Post and Entrepreneur. She is on the board for the SF Dance Film Festival and the Nasdaq YeX Advisory Board. Grace currently resides in Mill Valley with her husband and two teenage children.

Writer's Circle with Samantha Wallen

Your Sacred Story Image.jpg

Every month The Hivery invites new and established authors to share their wisdom, experiences and resources for writers and non-writers who love books.

On Thursday, April 11th we are thrilled to welcome Samantha Wallen! A Restorative Writing Mentor, she helps you drop your agenda and write what wants to be written so you can touch what is precious inside you, and our world, by using words as a pathway to reach what lives beyond language and bring that alive in your book, your blog, or whatever you write. Restorative Writing is memoir-based writing that awakens your voice and heals your spirit. It slows you down and tunes you in to the heartbeat and deep purpose of your book, your blog, your work, and your life. Restorative Writing deepens our shared conversation of aliveness–the ordinary, the mystical, the brilliant, and the wounded, forgotten, grieved and silenced parts. It brings all of us home to rest on the sacred ground of our shared human story so we can connect to and serve life and each other more fully on and off the page. 

In this workshop, Sam will be leading us through a guided writing exercise designed to deepen our conversation with ourselves, our work and writing, and with each other and whatever mysteries are waiting to be expressed and revealed. 

The Writer's Circle is facilitated by Hivery Member, Thais Derich. Thais Derich's memoir—Second Chance: A Mother’s Quest for a Natural Birth after a Cesarean (She Writes Press, May 9, 2017)—was a finalist for the Foreword Reviews' 2017 Book of the Year Award. Second Chance was also a finalist for the Creative Non-Fiction Magazine’s Baby Anthology. Thais is an international writer and public speaker on "Being the Hero of Your Life" and "Seeing Invisible Choices" in childbirth and beyond! She is also the founder of the "Write Your Impact" book program.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. BYO brown-bag lunch discussion.  All are welcome!

Hivery Circle: A Soul of Money Gathering featuring Lynne Twist & Sara Vetter

In April, we celebrate the importance of shifting from scarcity to abundance! We are thrilled to welcome special guests, acclaimed author and speaker, Lynne Twist, and speaker and coach, Sara Vetter, of the Soul of Money Institute.

soulofmoney_book_MG_0024Brighter.jpg

We all live in a ruthless, unforgiving money culture. Most of us feel that we are doing something wrong with money, no matter what our financial circumstances. Our relationship with money is often an area of life that harbors anxiety, suffering and fear for people from the most economically disadvantaged to people of great wealth.

This talk will address the mindset of scarcity and how it grips us, having us live in a constant state of worry and fear, rather than allowing us to see the bounty, flow, generosity and sufficiency that is available to each of us in life.

Through compelling stories and poignant insights, Lynne and Sara will examine the mindset of scarcity, explore the distinction of sufficiency, and empower us to discover how to liberate ourselves from old ways of thinking. She will address how financial resources and other key resources can flow, nourish and bless us, and the world in which we live.

Key Talking Points:

  • The culture of money

  • The condition or mindset of scarcity

  • The three toxic myths

  • The context of sufficiency

  • Money is like water

  • Moving from fear and scarcity to sufficiency, abundance and generosity.

Don’t hesitate to bring a friend or come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend. Guests will enjoy complimentary lite bites and local wines by Bee Hunter Wine and sips from Living GTS Foods Kombucha.

ALL ARE WELCOME at this beautiful event celebrating abundance.

When you let go of trying to get more of what you don’t really need, it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what we have.
— Lynne Twist
When we make a difference with what we have – it expands!
— Lynne Twist
What you appreciate appreciates!

As Keith Johnstone, a pioneer of improvisational theater says, “There are people who prefer to say 'yes' and there are people who prefer to say 'no'. Those who say 'yes' are rewarded by the adventures they have. Those who say 'no' are rewarded by the safety they attain.”

Let’s choose to discover the power of “yes” together!

Key takeaways for participants from this workshop include:

  • An understanding of improv as a path to personal and professional aliveness.

  • A sampling of games to support collaboration, improve communication and spark creative decision making.

  • Play based tools to quiet the ego in lieu of non-judgemental engagement.

Improv is all about kicking our ego-based thinking mind to the curb, in favor of uninhibited play. Neurological studies abound, touting the impacts that improv has on performers' brains - boosting self-expression activity in our prefrontal cortex, while blocking self-monitoring activity. From that place comes freer communication, creative flow and connection. Oh, and it's a whole lot of fun to boot!

This valuable workshop is not to be missed so be sure to grab your seat!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

The Product of You: A Two-Week Personal Branding Workshop with Grace Kraaijvanger

Everyone has a story. And each of us has reason to share it. Whether you’re a business owner, a freelancer, you’re thinking about going back to work, or you have a presence online (that’s everyone, really), personal branding is the way in which you tell your story. It creates an emotional connection to who you are, what your past experience has taught you, and where you would like to go. 

As we explore what's next for us, whether that's starting a new business, considering going back to work, or starting a new independent consultancy, it's imperative that we are thoughtful about our personal brand presence, both online and offline.

Entrepreneur's Circle: How To Elevate Your Brand Through Publishing A Book

workshop.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community.

This month, we welcome VP, Strategic Partnerships Christina Henry de Tessan and Executive Director, Independent Publishing Meghan Harvey of Girl Friday Productions; a women-owned and women-led firm, that creates gorgeous, brand-building books for authors and entrepreneurs.

Do you have industry-specific knowledge others want to know? Does your professional journey have take-aways others would find inspiring?

Publishing your thought leadership can add value to a national conversation. It can give your methodology or message staying power. It can also take your business or personal brand to the next level.


There has never been a better time to self-publish thanks to advancing technology, easier-than-ever distribution and direct-to-reader marketing opportunities. But let’s be honest. It’s also very confusing, with lots of predatory practices out there; false promises; and fast-changing platforms and offerings. In this presentation, Girl Friday Productions’ Executive Director of Independent Publishing Meghan Harvey and VP of Strategic Partnerships Christina Henry de Tessan explain why self-publishing is no longer a dirty word—and, in fact, why it’s such an exciting option for entrepreneurs. In this presentation, they will talk about:

  • How self-publishing has changed and why it can be a better option for entrepreneurs than traditional publishing.

  • Best practices for indie publishing today

  • Why having a clear marketing strategy is as essential as writing and producing a professional-quality book

  • How to go about it so that you end up with a beautiful book that’s right for you and your message and brand

Most importantly, we will answer your burning questions about how you can use a book to bolster your brand.

Key Takeaways Include:

• Demystifying the book publishing process so that people feel that it’s accessible and a real possibility for them.
• Concrete tips on what it takes to self-publish successfully.
• Letting people know there’s more than one kind of book out there. Authors can be as creative as they like when they become their own publisher.
• Sample books will be on hand to get people excited about the full range of possibilities.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

The Hivery Circle: How Introverts and Extroverts Can Flourish At Work and Business with Liz Fosslien

Business and the modern workplace can be an emotional minefield, filled with confusing power structures and unwritten rules. We're expected to be authentic, but not too authentic. Professional, but not stiff. Friendly, but not an oversharer. Easier said than done!

No Hard Feelings Book event at The Hivery

February’s evening Hivery Circle will explore how to bring your best self (and your whole self) to work every day.

Join us for a fun and interactive evening with Liz Fosslien, strategy and design consultant and the co-author of No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions At Worka book that explores how emotions profoundly affect key aspects of professional life.

Introverts and extroverts have different needs: extroverts tend to react to social interactions more quickly, while introverts have a higher base rate of arousal (put an introvert in a noisy open office and he’ll quickly become overwhelmed). In this fun, interactive workshop, Liz will help both introverts and extroverts understand, communicate, and optimize around their own and each others' tendencies.

The book No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions At Work, is a deeply researched yet affectionate guide to un-repressing emotions at work, finding constructive channels even for jealousy and anxiety, and demystifying digital interactions and coworker communication styles. It's launching February 5th, 2019 from Penguin books. Early fans of the book include Susan Cain, Adam Grant, Laszlo Bock, Chris Voss, and Kim Scott.

Key takeaways will include:

  • An overview to the new book which is a guide to effectively expressing your emotions at the office, finding fulfillment, and defining work-life balance on your own terms.

  • Understand how you show up in business or at work each day and what you need to thrive

  • Learn more about how you and others prefer to work through break out exercises such as how you or colleagues prefer to receive praise.

  • ‘How To Work With Me’ practical advice and tips using scientific research

Guests will enjoy wine courtesy of Bee Hunter Wine, and non-alcohol GT’s Living Food and lite bites.  

Don’t hesitate to come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend.

ALL ARE WELCOME at this beautiful and impactful celebration of the new year!

In this workshop Megan is going to help you get out of idea overwhelm, conquer time scarcity and get you into strategic action to bring your brilliant ideas into the world.

Inspiration Circle: Authentic Communication with Daphne de Marneffe, PhD

Daphne de Marneffe - The Hivery workshop January 2019

The Inspiration Circle is a facilitated group session all about personal development, discovery and exploration. Join us to connect with fellow members and come together in a welcoming group setting! This monthly event is a great opportunity to share motivation, ideas, coaching, and mentorship.

On January 24th, we are excited to welcome Daphne de Marneffe PhD, therapist and author of new book The Rough Patch: Marriage and the Art of Living Together, and Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life to The Hivery. Daphne will being talking to us about how to have authentic communication with those around us particularly when it comes to hard conversations.

In the effort to juggle our many roles, sometimes we can feel like we're losing ourselves. And sometimes nurturing others can come at the cost of providing for our own needs. This workshop will help participants develop a powerful method for talking about almost anything with the important people in their lives.

What makes for truly effective, authentic, and fulfilling communication? Research shows that the most important factors all have to do with emotions: how we tune into them, experience them, respond to them, and align them with our larger goals. After presenting the newest science of emotion and relationships and insights from the therapy consulting room, Daphne will guide participants in discussion and experiential learning about the following topics:


• The three key capacities for healthy emotional relating
• The "wonder drug" of intimate conversation
• A step-wise conversational strategy to deal with hard issues
• Ways to assert yourself and be responsive at the same time, in personal and professional relationships
• Techniques for collaborating as parents when you disagree

Key takeaways for participants from this workshop include:

  • How to identify an important conversation they need to have

  • How to start having that conversation today

  • How to continue that conversation, moving toward harmony and connection and away from tension and distance.

This valuable workshop is not to be missed so be sure to grab your seat!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

The Feminine Revolution with Co-Authors Amy Stanton + Catherine Connors

The_Feminine Revolution at The Hivery.jpg

We are thrilled to welcome the co-authors of the new book The Feminine Revolution Amy Stanton and Catherine Connors to The Hivery on Friday January 18th 12. 30 - 1. 45 pm.

This interactive and provocative discussion will confront twenty-one feminine qualities that are perceived as weak and reframe them as powerful tools that are the basis for lasting relationships, creativity, leadership and authenticity. Using their own personal journeys alongside historical research and analysis, the co-authors challenge societal misconceptions and make the case for a fresh look and a new approach to femininity, arguing why these traits are to be embraced rather than maligned.

Attendees will be inspired to think differently and will leave with practical tools to tap into their power, their femininity, sensitivity, intuition, and even their tendency to cry. The workshop will include a 20 minute interactive talk, a Q&A, and book signing at the end.

Key takeaways will include:

  • Challenge old and outdated perceptions that feminine traits and qualities are weaknesses, and learn how to revisit those characteristics as powerful assets that should be embraced rather than maligned.

  • Each attendee will learn how to define femininity in her own way.

  • Leave with the tools to explore the full range of their powers and release the internal struggle between their masculine and feminine traits.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!
