Tami and Barb with PaintingBarb Schommer, Healing Touch Instructor and retired public health nurse, is one of the 31 women in the “Women as Healers” book. She and I have a wonderful friendship and we have also co-created a CD called “Reflections: A Guided Meditation.” Barb and I also love to present together…there’s a synergy with the two of us together that is unmatched!! 

Before the holidays, Barb and I were talking about “What’s Next?!” We had been talking about doing something for self-care for a long time … we decided it was time to take action!  Hence, the “Self-Care Salon” was born.

Description:  In this session, we explore self-care as a daily practice and how to give ourselves loving self-care. As we focus on our own self-care, it sets a beautiful tone for our daily lives and helps us have greater compassion for others. We can also model this self-love to those we serve.

Participants exchange ideas about self-care using a creative and fun approach called World Café. Those attending experience an oasis of relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation! This unique session nurtures their spirits, moving from busy-ness to calm and deep relaxation. They leave the session in a mellow state. . . guaranteed!

Objectives:  Participants will–

  • Experience calming harp music and guided meditation allowing you to unwind.
  • Create a self-care collage in community.
  • Commit to one new self-care practice.


We conducted our first session at Woodwinds Health campusDoodle from Self-Care Salon in late January. This doodle is from one of the participants — yes! the pot of gold really is at the end of the rainbow!!

  • “Just what I needed!”
  • “For some time, I have been on a path of daily prayer/meditation, yoga/exercise, healthy eating and basic connection with myself. This reminded me to stick with my program.”

It was a joy for Barb and I to be present … if you are interested in manifesting your self-care intentions using the “Self-Care Salon” format, contact Tami.
