Is there a general understanding and agreement that providers abide by or does it depend on the whims of the provider, the modality, or the milieu?

    We women are the weavers of the social fabric of life. Love is the bottom line of our lives. Relationship is of prime importance to us. Yet, in our tormented world we are cut off from this core value and suffer in our relationships with our mates, children, friends, and work colleagues.  It is time to come together, drop our guard, reconnect in sacred sisterhood, acknowledge what we all share as common heritage as women and learn how to truly support ourselves and one another for our personal and planetary healing and transformation. By sharing our vulnerable truth and being witnessed by one another with compassion, empathy and care we can create the culture of love that is our birthright as women. Join Iris and Priya in intimate and open conversations about what we women face as we go through the unique portal after menopause into our sixties - the entrance into our wisdom years.

    PARENTS in RECOVERY: I'm Back!!...............Really?

Its a process and some parents in recovery forget..............that its not all about YOU!  We'll discuss this process and ways to make that re-entry smoother.
