    We are delighted to be able to offer a once a month support group that focuses on sharing from the perspective of our soul and higher self. This group will work equally well for those who already have information about chakras and would like further exploration, and for those who are new to these ideas. The purpose of the Chakra Club is to help us find deeper meaning, wholeness, and healing--as we tap into our higher consciousness in sharing our personal experiences and combined wisdom. The chakras connect our minds and bodies with our souls and higher consciousness. As we bring healing to our inner selves, our true soul-selves shine forth; and we increase our ability to create lives that work and are truly fulfilling. (Originally created and offered by Marcia (Phillips) West--Bridges of Unity).

    Have you ever experienced something you just can't explain and haven't been able to talk about it? Do you get feelings that you know something is going to happen? Do you think you see something and then it isn't there? Have you been somewhere and suddenly feel your hair raising on your arms, or feel a cold chill run through your body? Do you have pictures or video of unexplained objects or balls of light? In this group we will share our experiences, pictures, videos, and stories we have with the unknown in a safe, nurturing, and nonjudgemental environment. 


    Members of the group may choose to go on field trips and learn how to use different equipment to gain better insight on what we are experiencing.

    Heart beats, footsteps, turn signals, dripping faucets, babies sleeping, all have a rhythm of their own. Drums and drumming have been apart of the human expression from the beginning of time.  Womanspace gathers a group monthly to express our joy of rhythm with whatever instrument we  have, or  would like to borrow.  If you have a djembe, dunan, frame drum, or any other percussive instrument please bring them. We encourage all ages, to come to enjoy the camaraderie of making music together. We will explore traditional drumming rhythms, the rhythms of sayings, Nursery rhymes,  and connect with each other and to the earth. We will also express some emotions through drumming. Anger, love , fellowship and contentment can also be expressed as we settle into the rhythm of drumming out our human nature. No talent, drum, or previous experience required.

    “How could two hardworking people do everything right in life and end up destitute?” Willa Knox and her husband followed all the rules as responsible parents and professionals, and have nothing to show for it but debts and an inherited brick house that is falling apart.

    In another time, a troubled husband and public servant asks, “How can a man tell the truth, and be reviled for it?” Thatcher Greenwood finds himself under siege: his employer forbids him to speak of the exciting work just published by Charles Darwin. Thatcher wants only to honor his duties, but his friendships with a woman scientist and a renegade newspaper editor threaten to draw him into a vendetta with the town’s powerful men.

    Unsheltered is the compulsively readable story of two families, in two centuries, who navigate what seems to be the end of the world as they know it. These characters paint a startlingly relevant portrait of life in precarious times when the foundations of the past have failed to prepare us for the future.

    All women are invited to these discussions held in the William Reif Gallery to share observations, enthusiasm, insights and the pure enjoyment of reading.

    9:30–11:00 am

    During World War II, a family finds life turned upside down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes (and suspicions) turn to the newcomers, the interlopers, the strangers.

    This is her town as Rennie Stroud has never seen it before. She has just turned thirteen and, until this time, life has pretty much been what her father told her it should be: predictable and fair. But now the winds of change are coming and, with them, a shift in her perspective. And Rennie will discover secrets that can destroy even the most sacred things.

    Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass is a riveting exploration of the darkest — and best — parts of the human heart.

    All women are invited to these discussions held in the William Reif Gallery to share observations, enthusiasm, insights and the pure enjoyment of reading.

    She took 1930s New York by storm, working her way up writing copy for R.H. Macy’s to become the highest paid advertising woman in the country. 

    Now it’s the last night of 1984 and Lillian, 85 years old but just as sharp and savvy as ever, is on her way to a party. On a walk that takes her over 10 miles around the city, she meets bartenders, bodega clerks, security guards, criminals, children, parents, and parents-to-be, while reviewing a life of excitement and adversity, passion and heartbreak, illuminating all the ways New York has changed — and has not.

    A love letter to city life in all its guts and grandeur, Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk paints a portrait of a remarkable woman across the canvas of a changing America.

    Are you looking for a place to have a safe conversation about spirituality? We will be exploring and discussing topics that include: challenges and ease of trusting a spiritual resource, experiences of spirituality, what kinds of things/activities feed your soul-self, sharing new aha’s in one’s spiritual journey, and what do our doubts mean. The conversation will be moderated and will focus on personal beliefs and experiences (not on any one specific faith) so that there is an environment of openness, sacredness, and inclusiveness. Dogmatism, proselytizing, and political agendas are discouraged and will be redirected.

    Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.
