Sparked Salon

The Hivery and Sparked come together to create a salon-style evening evening of inspiration, connection and empowerment. This time, we're featuring Helen Russell of Equator Coffee and Gibson Thomas of Edible Marin- interviewed by Sparked Founder, Lisa Rueff. You’ll get an opportunity to hear from these dynamic women what lights them up, how they handle challenges, what inspires them, and what they’ve learned along the way. 

The salon is an evening dedicated to the celebration of women connecting, and the magic that happens when women gather. In addition to cocktails, light bites, and an opportunity to experience the fun of the Sparked Board Game, you’ll also get to learn from other inspiring women in the beautiful surroundings of The Hivery. 

Cocktails and bites provided by our generous sponsors, Laughing Glass Cocktails and Equator Coffee!

Book Club: My Name is Lucy Barton

josh-applegate-122365.jpg

The highly requested Hivery book club is here!!

Come gather with a group of women to discuss some of the most thought intriguing, conversation-inducing reads. Curated and led by Julie Carlucci, this casual book conversation is the perfect way to get involved, meet new people, and share. 

"Reading is a solitary act, an experience of interiority. To read a book is to burst the confines of one’s consciousness and enter another world. What happens when you read a book in the company of others? You enter its world together but see it in your own way; and it’s through sharing those differences of perception that the book group acquires its emotional power." - New York Times

My Name is Lucy Barton, by Elizabeth Strout

Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn’t spoken for many years, comes to see her. Gentle gossip about people from Lucy’s childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lie the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy’s life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human and truly unforgettable.

#1 New York Times Bestseller. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize

Reading is a solitary act, an experience of interiority. To read a book is to burst the confines of one’s consciousness and enter another world. What happens when you read a book in the company of others? You enter its world together but see it in your own way; and it’s through sharing those differences of perception that the book group acquires its emotional power.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

This story, timeless and entertaining, exotic yet simple, breaks down the journey we all take to find the most meaningful treasures in our lives into steps that are at once natural and magical. It is about the faith, power, and courage we all have within us to pursue the intricate path of a Personal Legend, a path charted by the mysterious magnet of destiny but obscured by distractions. Santiago shows how along the way we learn to trust our hearts, read the seemingly inconspicuous signs, and understand that as we look to fulfill a dream, it looks to find us just the same, if we let it.

The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood

In the world of the near future, who will control women's bodies?

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are only valued if their ovaries are viable.

Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now....

Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force.

"A novel that brilliantly illuminates some of the darker interconnections between politics and sex . . . Just as the world of Orwell's 1984 gripped our imaginations, so will the world of Atwood's handmaid!" —Washington Post Book World


We will screen the first episode of the 2017 TV Series during the book group discussion.

What's Next: 5-Week Workshop Series

What's Next: 5-Week Workshop Series

If you feel like you’re taking care of everyone except yourself, or you’re on someone else’s path, creatively stifled, or simply unsure of what to do next, you are not alone. The Hivery What's Next Workshop is here for you.

WHY SHOULD YOU PARTICIPATE?

The quest and exploration of identifying possibilities for what's next can move from daunting to exciting especially when done in a group of other supportive women.

WHAT’S NEXT WORKSHOP (5-WEEK PROGRAM):

Over five weeks, you'll walk away with basic knowledge about who you are, what makes you tick and how to setup your environment to thrive.

Recognize patterns that are holding you back and identify threads that point to your purposeful work. You will also receive a toolkit chock-full of practical actions to support healthy change for your transition into what’s next for you.

This isn’t just one more, one-off workshop, but a process where you can actually create meaningful steps toward change. You will be guided in creating new habits that support change and an opportunity to participate in accountability circles to stay on track.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS WORKSHOP?

Whether you want to go back to work, back to school, start a business, or volunteer in a personally meaningful way, the "What's Next” program will help you to identify possibilities that match who you are, what you are naturally good at, and what excites you.  What's Next Alumnae include women in all life transitions who feel stuck or need motivation and inspiration to get moving again.

This course series is especially for women who crave being part of a supportive group of like-minded women that encourage ideas, next steps and action.

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANTS?

You don’t need to know what you want...it’s perfectly okay if you don’t. Our only expectation is that you show up fully and that you are ready and willing to explore positive change in your life!

What You Will Learn:

WHY AM I STUCK?

First you will need to understand why you are stuck. We will explain the myriad of environmental blocks, cultural themes and brain biases that keep you from moving forward. You will find out how to change your mindset, let go of expectations and clear away roadblocks.

WHO AM I?   

We begin with introductions, intentions and a variety of self assessment explorations including the Myers Briggs (a Personality Typology Inventory).  Additionally, we will explore Interests through the Holland Code, Character Strengths, Skills, Values and a variety of creative exercises that will help you to brainstorm possibilities that are complementary to your true nature.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO CREATE CHANGE?

We work together to intentionally create space for What’s Next by identifying what works and what no longer serves you.  You will life-design both your physical environment and relationships, to support your new chapter. This is a key component to organizing your life to  get “unstuck” and make actual change.  

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

We are not here to tell you what to do, but rather we will guide you towards identifying the intersection of your core values, interests, strengths and skills.  This is the intersection where “good fit” possibilities reside.   

HOW CAN I ACT ON CREATING CHANGE FOR MYSELF?

We create actions and accountability around "trying things on."  Your Hivery group will be there to help you investigate, network and find out if new action paths are a match with who you are and what you want to do.

Finally, we will craft your toolkit to create a practice that supports authentic change. You will receive practical tools and a variety of Positive Psychology techniques to create your own custom recipe for change.

Are you ready to discover what’s next? Join us! 

9:30 am - 12 pm at The Hivery

Meeting dates: 9/28, 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, 10/26

Members: $426* (20% off). Want to join our membership and get the discount? Join here.

ABOUT YOUR FACILITATORS, LAURA AND LINDA: 

Laura Riordan, Ph.D. is a holistic life coach who helps her clients find balance and meaningful success. With a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and 20 years in the mind and body wellness industry, she brings wisdom, clarity and swiftness to her coaching practice. Laura began her career as the head of client services for retreat style resorts and spas, helping people center and refocus themselves while escaping the daily challenges of modern life. While overseeing spa programs and working as a massage therapist, she discovered that retreats were great at providing short-term relief, but they could not offer the kind of long-standing change that so many people needed.

Laura’s coaching practice evolved from the understanding that people need a guide to help identify their meaningful work, ground aha moments and give accountability and infrastructure to make lasting changes. Laura leverages her Ph.D. to help her clients find bigger versions of themselves and her strategic and practical skills to create a road map to get there.

Linda Lesem, M.S. is a trained therapist, career counselor and life coach, specializing in Positive Psychology, (the Science of Happiness). She works individually with clients in her own practice, and also facilitates groups for clients, who are yearning to create positive change in their lives! Linda created Moms In Transition, a workshop for Moms who are ready to take their next step, and are asking themselves…"What is next for me?"  This is a great way for a small group of women to be together, as they "get back in touch with who they are", and "what they want" and then start the process of creating a plan for themselves, whether that be re-entering the paid working world, going back to school or volunteering in personally meaningful ways.


WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIALS:

"I want to thank you both again for the last four wonderful weeks of "What's Next?"  The class exceeded all my expectations and was truly insightful.  I appreciate your thoughtful approach and stimulating content.  It is such a pleasure to have discovered The Hivery and to have spent time with inspiring, courageous women in class this past month...I did not want the class to end!"
-Sheryl Ott
"I don't have words to describe how valuable I found today's session to be, and how excited I am for the 3 remaining sessions we have.  Over the 25 years I've been in the working world, I have worked with a number of career coaches, attended multiple workshops, and purchased countless career books (I just dusted off "Do What You Are" and "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" from my bookshelf).  Today's session produced more "aha" moments for me than any I can remember from years past, and we are just at the beginning."
-Anonymous
"I met a friend for lunch who asked me about the workshop and I was happy to tell her the two top take-aways for me were: (1) understanding all the aspects of my life and how they fit together (2) how to structure my schedule in a way that compartmentalizes all the pieces.  SO MUCH BETTER."
-Monique Johnson
"While I know I have the knowledge, the courage and the intelligence it is all still quite a scary process... I am putting my best foot forward and filing my life with lots of positive support and encouragement.  I am so thankful to have found the combination of the two of you to help me along this path!"
-Karen Polite Sullivan

"Participating in What's Next has provided me with an important opportunity to re-visit self inventory work I completed previously, and then to use that work to take significant, concrete steps towards breathing life into my teen coaching practice. I loved learning from Laura and Linda, as well as from the other participants. Through the five weeks of the workshop, I received a number of helpful suggestions which will help tremendously as I move forward. And finally, participating in What's Next gave me space to formulate important questions and explore solutions."

-Jennifer Labovich

"This class was lead by very professional, excellent life coaches! The group of women were supportive, loving and kind, so much so, that it allowed all of us to open our hearts and feel safe asking for help and supporting each other. I loved all the honesty and beautiful stories we shared and the friendships made...hopefully for a long time!"

-Suzanne Roth-Paul

"I was stuck thinking that earning money for my work was going to be difficult after years of volunteer work. This workshop has been extremely helpful in learning more about myself, my interests and possible directions I can take. Now I am networking and feel optimistic and re-charged. Thank you Laura and Linda!"

Meditation Monday with Betsy Ryen

“Irest” from Integrative Restoration, the Institute founded by Richard Miller,  is based on the ancient form of Yoga Nidra - a yogic sleep where you are in a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping.

iRest is a research-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry and is currently being utilized in VA hospitals, military bases, hospitals and clinics, hospice, homeless shelters, community programs, and schools. Research has shown that iRest effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and chemical dependency while increasing health, resiliency, and well-being.

During this practice you will be lying on the floor or seating in a supported and comfortable position and be guided to deep relaxation through breath and body sensing exercises and then lead through personal inquiry through guided prompts. 

SPACE IS LIMITED, so register below.

About Betsy: 

As a yogi for the past 16 years, Betsy found her favorite pose to be shavasana or corpse pose where she felt completely at ease and at peace with the world. After years of studying various forms of mediation she read about Richard Miller’s iRest Yoga Nidra program 5 years ago and was hooked! This form of meditation most resonated with her quest to find an accessible practice for healing. After years of training and retreating she has recently completed the two year certification process. She is honored to bring this practice to The Hivery!

Lunchtime Movie Screening: 50/50. A Film on Gender Equality.

Join us for popcorn and a lunchtime viewing of 20-minute film and discussion afterward on, 50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present, and Future of Women + Power” by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Tiffany Shlain.

On May 10th, join thousands of organizations, companies, schools, museums, libraries and homes — and of course, The Hivery! — in a global conversation about what it will take to get to a more gender-balanced world in all sectors of society: business, politics, culture, home, and more.  

This film was led by Tiffany Shlain, Mill Valley resident and Emmy-nominated filmmaker and founder of The Webby Awards, 50/50 Day is a timely film and conversation on gender equality. 

About 50/50: 

50/50 gives the 10,000 year history of women + power — from setbacks and uprisings, to the bigger context of where we are today. Using her signature, cinematic-thought-essay style, Emmy-nominated filmmaker & founder of The Webby Awards Tiffany Shlain brings us on an electric ride to explore, where are we really on the greater arc of history of women and power? And what’s it going to take to get to a #5050 world — not just politics and board rooms, but truly shifting the gender balance to be better for everyone.  

50/50 premiered on Oct 27, 2016 simultaneously live at #TEDWomen and 275 TEDx’s globally, online on @Refinery29 and on TV on Comcast’s Watchable. It is the most viewed long form film Refinery29 has released with over 4 million views to date. It will now be the centerpiece film for a global conversation set for May 10th about what it’s going to take to get to a more gender balanced world called 50/50 Day.

About Johanna: 

static1.squarespace.jpg

Johanna Beyer is the founder and principal of On Your Path Consulting. Since 2002 she has been working one on one with people who feel that they are at a crossroads in life. She specializes in working with individuals who feel unfulfilled with their current careers and are ready to create their next stage of work that is fulfilling, challenging and purposeful. 

Her main philosophy with coaching rests in the belief that everyone has the answers and clarity inside. However, when you are trying to make big change on your own, fear can often block that inner wisdom. She considers herself a guide with expertise in helping people to connect with their inner clarity and will go to battle with you to fight off the inner critic and create accountability to make your vision into a reality.

MY JOURNEY WITH TAROT

By Johanna Beyer

I started working with the Tarot back in 1999 when I took my first in depth course with Angeles Arrien. Her passion and knowledge for the Tarot inspired me to get my own deck and her book so that I could bring this age old wisdom into my daily life. Very early on I began to see that it was not ME who was picking the cards but rather a larger force showing to me the information I needed in order to break through old fears, birth new identities and trust that I was exactly where I was supposed to be in times that felt confusing or difficult.

Since 2002 I have incorporated the Tarot into my coaching sessions when the individual is open to receiving an extra bit of wisdom to complement their session. I have spent 100's of hours working with the Tarot including taking Angeles Arrien's Intensive Master Class. In all my years of doing this work with people and organizations, I still believe that the Tarot is one of the most powerful tools we can use to access information that creates breakthroughs, new insights and ideas for actions that can take our lives to the next level.

Nicole Gnutzman is founder of Soulscape Coaching, a transformational way of coaching that guides clients to find their soul gifts and path, and design the life they truly want to live into. Her approach includes Whole Person Coaching that honors her client's own inner wisdom; ancient Mayan sources of wisdom and soul connection such as Mayan Day Sign readings and sacred cacao ceremony; and dream analysis because dreams are messages from our soul.

That's when she fully committed to finding her soul's path. Along the way her inner wisdom told her that her path is to guide others to find theirs .... Her work is now her joy. 

Nicole is also a cacao medicine carrier and dream circle leader, holding sacred ceremonial space for groups that allows for deep soul exploration, connection to the sacred and self-healing. She also holds transformative retreats and workshops in beautiful places.

About Sydney:

My journey to eco-beauty began in 2012 when I started to model professionally and struggled with my skin. On set, makeup artists would apply, remove and reapply makeup for up to 10 hours, and I would wake up the next morning with redness, irritation, and blemishes. I tried to solve the problem with more chemicals- everything from dermatologist-prescribed creams to drugstore face washes, but the result was always more irritation. One day, while sitting in the dermatologist’s office deciding whether to go on a round of antibiotics, I had an epiphany- the body is self-healing! The answer is not more foreign chemicals, it’s less. From that moment on, I have been transitioning my daily products to cleaner, non-toxic, organic options. Now, I hope to help women everywhere apply makeup that makes them look and feel their best, while using products that enhance their natural beauty with ingredients found in nature.

This isn’t just one more, one-off workshop, but a process where you can actually create meaningful steps toward change. You will be guided in creating new habits that support change and an opportunity to participate in accountability circles to stay on track.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS WORKSHOP?

Whether you want to go back to work, back to school, start a business, or volunteer in a personally meaningful way, the "What's Next” program will help you to identify possibilities that match who you are, what you are naturally good at, and what excites you.  What’s Next Alumnae include: new moms, empty nesters, and women in all life transitions transitions who feel stuck or need motivation and inspiration.

This course series is especially for women who crave being part of a supportive group of like-minded women that encourage ideas, next steps and action.

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANTS?

You don’t need to know what you want...it’s perfectly okay if you don’t. Our only expectation is that you show up fully and that you are ready and willing to explore positive change in your life!

What You Will Learn:

WHY AM I STUCK?

First you will need to understand why you are stuck. We will explain the myriad of environmental blocks, cultural themes and brain biases that keep you from moving forward. You will find out how to change your mindset, let go of expectations and clear away roadblocks.

WHO AM I?   

We begin with introductions, intentions and a variety of self assessment explorations including the Myers Briggs (a Personality Typology Inventory).  Additionally, we will explore Interests through the Holland Code, Character Strengths, Skills, Values and a variety of creative exercises that will help you to brainstorm possibilities that are complementary to your true nature.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO CREATE CHANGE?

We work together to intentionally create space for What’s Next by identifying what works and what no longer serves you.  You will life-design both your physical environment and relationships, to support your new chapter. This is a key component to organizing your life to  get “unstuck” and make actual change.  

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

We are not here to tell you what to do, but rather we will guide you towards identifying the intersection of your core values, interests, strengths and skills.  This is the intersection where “good fit” possibilities reside.   

HOW CAN I ACT ON CREATING CHANGE FOR MYSELF?

We create actions and accountability around "trying things on."  Your Hivery group will be there to help you investigate, network and find out if new action paths are a match with who you are and what you want to do.

Finally, we will craft your toolkit to create a practice that supports authentic change. You will receive practical tools and a variety of Positive Psychology techniques to create your own custom recipe for change.

ABOUT YOUR FACILITATORS, LAURA AND LINDA: 

Laura Riordan, Ph.D. is a holistic life coach who helps her clients find balance and meaningful success. With a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and 20 years in the mind and body wellness industry, she brings wisdom, clarity and swiftness to her coaching practice. Laura began her career as the head of client services for retreat style resorts and spas, helping people center and refocus themselves while escaping the daily challenges of modern life. While overseeing spa programs and working as a massage therapist, she discovered that retreats were great at providing short-term relief, but they could not offer the kind of long-standing change that so many people needed.

Laura’s coaching practice evolved from the understanding that people need a guide to help identify their meaningful work, ground aha moments and give accountability and infrastructure to make lasting changes. Laura leverages her Ph.D. to help her clients find bigger versions of themselves and her strategic and practical skills to create a road map to get there.

Linda Lesem, M.S. is a trained therapist, career counselor and life coach, specializing in Positive Psychology, (the Science of Happiness). She works individually with clients in her own practice, and also facilitates groups for clients, who are yearning to create positive change in their lives! Linda created Moms In Transition, a workshop for Moms who are ready to take their next step, and are asking themselves…"What is next for me?"  This is a great way for a small group of women to be together, as they "get back in touch with who they are", and "what they want" and then start the process of creating a plan for themselves, whether that be re-entering the paid working world, going back to school or volunteering in personally meaningful ways.


WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIALS:

I want to thank you both again for the last four wonderful weeks of "What's Next?"  The class exceeded all my expectations and was truly insightful.  I appreciate your thoughtful approach and stimulating content.  It is such a pleasure to have discovered The Hivery and to have spent time with inspiring, courageous women in class this past month...I did not want the class to end!
-Sheryl Ott
I don't have words to describe how valuable I found today's session to be, and how excited I am for the 3 remaining sessions we have.  Over the 25 years I've been in the working world, I have worked with a number of career coaches, attended multiple workshops, and purchased countless career books (I just dusted off "Do What You Are" and "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" from my bookshelf).  Today's session produced more "aha" moments for me than any I can remember from years past, and we are just at the beginning.
-Anonymous
I met a friend for lunch who asked me about the workshop and I was happy to tell her the two top take-aways for me were: (1) understanding all the aspects of my life and how they fit together (2) how to structure my schedule in a way that compartmentalizes all the pieces.  SO MUCH BETTER.
-Monique Johnson
While I know I have the knowledge, the courage and the intelligence it is all still quite a scary process... I am putting my best foot forward and filing my life with lots of positive support and encouragement.  I am so thankful to have found the combination of the two of you to help me along this path!

Work Pause Thrive. A Fireside Chat with Lisen Stromberg

Lisen Stromberg has written a book, Work Pause Thrive: How to Pause for Parenthood Without Killing Your Career, that details how trailblazing women have disrupted the traditional paradigm by incorporating pauses into their careers.

Deeply rooted in social science research, cutting-edge data collected from nearly 1,500 women, and through 186 first-person interviews, Work Pause Thrive debunks the myth that puling back for a period of time kills your career. In fact, it may just be the ticket to the career of your dreams.

Hivery Circle with Barbara Waxman, On Middlescence

For April's Hivery Circle, we will gather for a cozy evening to discuss what Barbara has coined, middlescence. 

Barbara Waxman is a gerontologist, leadership coach, and speaker, who recently released The Middlescence Manifesto, a call to action for people at midlife. In the Manifesto, she introduces a new stage of life - middlescence - that is the result of 30+ years of life created by increased longevity.

In her coaching work, Barbara provides the insights, tools, and coaching to help adults at midlife navigate middlescence, and embrace the power and wisdom to be leaders in their home, workplace, community and the world. Her work on a full-length book on Middlescence is based on the stories she has collected in her coaching practice with adults at midlife, and the tools she has developed to help people navigate this new stage.

Barbara believes that world events are dictating that middlescence assume the mantle of their leadership to make positive change. 

Books will be available for purchase at special price of $10.

Meditation Monday with Betsy Ryen

“Irest” from Integrative Restoration, the Institute founded by Richard Miller,  is based on the ancient form of Yoga Nidra - a yogic sleep where you are in a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping.

iRest is a research-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry and is currently being utilized in VA hospitals, military bases, hospitals and clinics, hospice, homeless shelters, community programs, and schools. Research has shown that iRest effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and chemical dependency while increasing health, resiliency, and well-being.

During this practice you will be lying on the floor or seating in a supported and comfortable position and be guided to deep relaxation through breath and body sensing exercises and then lead through personal inquiry through guided prompts. 

SPACE IS LIMITED, so register below.

About Betsy:

As a yogi for the past 16 years, Betsy found her favorite pose to be shavasana or corpse pose where she felt completely at ease and at peace with the world. After years of studying various forms of mediation she read about Richard Miller’s iRest Yoga Nidra program 5 years ago and was hooked! This form of meditation most resonated with her quest to find an accessible practice for healing. After years of training and retreating she has recently completed the two year certification process. She is honored to bring this practice to The Hivery!
