Is the new normal wearing you down? Do you need a fresh perspective to recapture the excitement you had when you were “you”?  Join us at the Comfort Club Sampler, a TTN event hosted by its founder, Deborah Wood Holton, where together we’ll explore a few of the themes, practices, and activities that make the Club so engaging.
 
Think of The Comfort Club as an exclusive “oasis” where fsmart, savvy women “walking their walk” rediscover creative ways to nurture self-compassion, reignite self-care, and add sparkle to their joy. In other words, it’s a place where we renew our commitment to our self-preservation.
 
This is the spirit we cultivate in the The Comfort Club. As the poet and activist Audre Lorde once said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” ― Audre Lorde  And Martha Beck, in Finding Your Own North Star, puts it this way: “If you want to … make the world a better place …, you have to start by becoming whole yourself.”

Dr. Deborah Wood Holton is an award-winning professor emerita at DePaul University, having served as an educator of adult learners for over thirty-four years. A National Endowment for the Humanities scholar, with emphasis in African American cultural history, she holds advanced degrees in English, American Theatre Studies, and Creative Writing. She is a certified transition coach with a specialty in pre-retirement, and an Energy Leadership™ Master Practitioner. Spiritually rooted, she brings both a grounded way and a lightness of heart to all that she does.

Come join us for a taste of the Comfort Club. If you’re feeling adventuresome, why not try an activity beforehand to share with the group? We’ll send details after registration.
