I recently listened to a Dare to Lead podcast in which Brene Brown interviewed Charles Feltman, the author of The Thin Book of Trust. During this interview, Feltman says one way we break trust is by extending an offer we cannot fulfill. An offer, says Feltman, is the same as a commitment.
I realize this statement may seem obvious, and I cannot keep count of how many times I have made a well-intentioned offer and not been able to deliver. All the times I have said, “Let me know if you need anything,” and “Please reach out if I can help.”
In the moment, I mean it. I sense the other person’s pain and I want to alleviate their suffering. I suspect most of us would like to alleviate suffering, and if everyone whom we extended an offer to help asked us to follow through, we would feel overwhelmed and burned out.
— 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.
If you have any questions or concerns, then please contact Kim Bushore-Maki.
— 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.
