These conversations are more than an exchange of ideas. They enact a possible future and create the conditions for the emergence of a new way of being human together.

Zeitgeist is the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time. Join Sarah and the Selfistry community for compelling conversations about topics that are alive for so many of us in these times.

Sometimes referred to as a time between worlds, this moment in the history of our planet, the evolution of our species, and the mystery of the cosmos, is rich with crises and opportunities.

Let’s not turn away.

Let’s lean into the confounding uncertainty, inspiring potential, and profound heartbreak. Let’s fully engage in the mind-blowing experience of being alive now.

These salons will be enlightening and sobering explorations of how taking the time to wonder together can be key to not only achieving our personal happiness, but also in finding our right relationship with the world and planet. All voices and perspectives are welcome in the spirit of a shared commitment to listen deeply and speak kindly.

Salon topics will be chosen based upon community interest.

Dates will be woven into the year.

Recordings of previous salons available.


When it comes to politics, polarization has been as common as collaboration. Is collaboration always the ideal? Or is there a place for polarization as well? Join us to explore the possibility that integrating polarization and collaboration into a more complex and dynamic engagement might be the evolutionary edge we are on as a species.


This salon is the second in a series of three (maybe more!) where we investigate what conversations with ourselves, one another, and others out there in the world look like. From where are we launching our conversations, to whom are we speaking, and what is our underlying objective in engaging in those conversations? The framing we lay down can loosen our anxiety or despair, helping us orient ourselves, take stock of what we’re bringing into the territory, and take time to ponder on our objectives — as we rest into the territory itself and listen for what the “field” is wanting from us.


All are welcome.

Join us on July 11 – 4:oo pm – 5:15 pm Pacific
