New Topics!

PEOPLE CRAVE COMMUNITY and meaningful conversation. By hosting a Saturday Salon, you are giving the gift of time and space in which people can open up and become inspired, healed and connected to others.   Here is a sampling from a recent Saturday Salon: What happened to immigration reform?

We are All Fools…

We are All Fools…

WE ARE ALL FOOLS, and we are all Divine.  Do you agree? What does that statement mean to you? This is a great question to throw in the hat at your next Saturday Salon.  There are so many ways this discussion can go. Is being a fool a bad thing?  Are we divine, or are only the gods divine?  Are we God’s children?  If so, doesn’t that make us at least...

What We Know About Climate Change

TEN YEARS AGO, I TOOK KIDS TO SCIENCE CAMP up in the San Bernadino mountains.  Whether we went in the Fall, Winter or Spring, it was always a rich, varied environment. Our site was surrounded by deep, green pines and cedar trees. Grey squirrels were everywhere!

No matter what happens in the second half of the show, (the volcano may win someday) I am encouraged by the ability of life to catch and hold onto the miles of lifeless, rock even after almost all life forms were blasted off the mountain.  And all of this happened in much less time than...

Bringing ‘em Back

SHOULD WE BRING EXTINCT SPECIES back to life?  Do we really want herds of wooly mammoths roaming the streets of New York, or passenger pigeons pooping on our cars? Throw this question into your SATURDAY SALON hat and watch the discussion take off.  A new topic has a way of spurring your guests’ thoughts and takes the discussion into the bigger questions and...

Pete Seeger

WHO ARE YOUR HEROS? Great Saturday Salon question, because it puts a spotlight on what we value.  Pete Seeger’s on my list, ever since I watched a documentary about his life and how he lived it.  Pete Seeger died January 27th, 2014.  He was 94.  I admire him because he lived his life with joy, integrity and loved others and the planet with an active, true...
