The other day I was inspired to pick up my copy of Brene Brown’s book Rising Strong, which I randomly opened to the chapter entitled “Sewer Rats and Scofflaws.”
In this chapter, Brene shares a story in which she moves from anger to self-righteousness to compassion.

— 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.
