Emotional agility, a phrase coined by Harvard psychologist Dr. Susan David, is “the ability to be with yourself, your thoughts, your difficult emotions, sadness, fear, and anger in a way that is curious and compassionate, but without allowing yourself to be derailed by those emotions.” #goals
Doesn’t that sound lovely? If your answer is “yes,” then enclosed are my notes from a Dare to Lead podcast in which Brene Brown interviews Susan David. I found Susan David’s research fascinating and especially appreciated her description of “toxic positivity.”
— COVID-19 STATEMENT —
Because of the increased number of coronavirus cases in the region, Shakti in the Mountains is requiring all people, regardless of whether or not one is vaccinated, to wear a face mask to enter the building.
We encourage folks to prioritize the health of our community by staying home, if not feeling well, and by respecting another’s need to socially distance.

— NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY —
Shakti in the Mountains celebrates diversity and works to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels respected and safe. We do not discriminate based on a person’s color, race, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion (creed), ability, age, marital status, citizenship, or nationality. We invite everyone, who participates in our community, to help us create a welcoming environment which promotes healing, encourages kindness, and fosters respect.
Building Community, Changing Lives
Shakti in the Mountains is a community for women (and the men who support them) to cultivate, nurture and celebrate the feminine.
The feminine is the creative energy present in all humans. It is the power that transforms consciousness itself. The feminine is the fuel we use to generate new ideas as well as the energy we use to take care of what we love. Without the feminine, our world would be lifeless and unsustainable.
We are dedicated to elevating the feminine: to providing opportunities for folks to recognize this innate power and to use it to create health, vitality and joy.
