“I feel no judgment as I am led safely to share the stories of my life. Equally magical is listening to the stories of other women in my circle. I realize I’m not so different; and therefore, not alone.” Carol Lynn Everest, Sonoma, CA

When we read our pieces aloud, we were all in awe of how open-hearted, moving, and beautiful every story was. It wasn’t that we didn’t know how to write; what we needed help with was opening our hearts. That’s what Susan’s gentle support allowed us to do.” Betsey Crawford, Marin County, CA
