Learn More About Our Speakers

We’ve all had to make major adjustments to our daily routines during the pandemic, and through all the change we may have lost focus on ourselves. After all, we’ve been in survival mode trying to work out new ways to manage our jobs, families, distance learning and the health and safety of ourselves and those around us.

Self-care is a broad topic, but the key is to practice, paying attention to your body and what it needs. It’s is about finding nurturing experiences that leave you replenished and rejuvenated, refueling yourself so that you’re not running on empty. It’s important that your self-care practice is flexible. Keep it simple, and seek out experiences you genuinely enjoy, guilt-free.

In this episode, we will explore the rejuvenating ritual of tea, the subtleties of small batch gin, important factors in breast cancer prevention, and simple, refreshing natural beauty routines.

We will also be joined again by BiteClub’s Heather Irwin as she learns truffle-making from with Sonja Schluter and Jill McLewis of Eye Candy Chocolatier. Chef Duskie Estes will teach a new cocktail recipe.

Women in Conversation at Home is a virtual series that celebrates the Sonoma lifestyle and the remarkable women who call this special place home. Our goal is to bring joy, beauty, and laughter into your homes.
