Boldly Imperfect WE’VE ALL FELT PRESSURE TO SEEM “PERFECT” BEFORE, RIGHT? Or wait, maybe that’s just us ladies. Whenever I've heard the topic come up in conversation among guys, the notion of personal perfection seems pretty foreign to them—or

pretty silly. As my own husband once said to me, like it was a total no-brainer, “Why would you worry about perfection? Perfection is impossible.” Ha! True that. Still, many of us women, for a thousand complicated reasons, will sometimes attempt the impossible by hiding parts of our real selves for fear of seeming as if we don’t have it all together. How do we break out of this ingrained habit? Step one, as Daring Women founder Ashley Mauldin points out on page 22, could be in recognizing the immense value of letting our guards down. “True connection requires a willingness to be vulnerable, to show up as our authentic selves,” she says. It’s a tough challenge, but it’s one that Mauldin poses every month to the ladies who attend her Daring Women meet-ups around the valley; she feels that our rela-

out the window, beautiful things happen. They’re happening right now, across the valley, and in Roaring Fork Lifestyle’s Women’s Issue this month we spotlight some of their stories.

Sopris 100 Who Care Makes Giving Personal and Practical

MARILYN MURPHY WAS NERVOUS ABOUT GIVING A “PITCH” TO SOPRIS 100 WHO CARE. She had been board president for Carbondale’s nonprofit newspaper, the Sopris Sun, for only about a year and didn’t feel all that confident about leading a fundraising effort. But the paper was in a tough spot, paying overlapping wages while replacing two of three staffers and needing funds to replace aging computers and software. So in May 2018, Murphy gave it a go. The evening’s design was simple. Nearly 100 women gathered for an hour and a half. Each contributed $100 cash or a blank check, plus $15 cash for drinks and appetizers. Each had been invited to nominate a worthy cause: a nonprofit, an individual, or any do-gooder group, as long as it wasn’t political or religious. Those who made nominations had to be prepared to “pitch” their candidate.

GIVING BACK

(CON TI N U ED)

In January 2018 they held their first event, raising over $10,000 for a new nonprofit, The Freedom Center. Created to assist mothers and their families affected by addiction, The Freedom Center is modeled on an outpatient alcohol and drug addiction treatment program started in Denver by Laurence Freedom in 2000. By May, the group gave its second gift to the Sopris Sun. Then in September 2018, they donated $9,000 to the Family Resource Center of the Roaring Fork School District. The group’s most recent award benefited a new suicide prevention program called Patrick’s Place. Started by Temple Glassier and named after her son Patrick Palardy, a Basalt High School freshman who committed suicide, the Patrick’s Place drop-in center was created in partnership with Stepping Stones. It provides mentoring and suicide prevention services to mid-valley youth and families. The swift, simple design of Sopris 100’s giving fills a gap for start-ups, like The Freedom Center and Patrick’s Place, organizations that don’t have grant writers and haven’t developed the 501(c)(3) legal status required for foundation support. Even more established nonprofits like the Sopris Sun struggle with tiny staffs, usually employees who lack health care and vacation benefits, and they can be toppled by unexpected equipment expenses or turnover among staff or board members—all of whom are at risk of burnout. Having lived in Carbondale for decades, Sopris 100 founder Cretti thought she knew everyone. It’s a small town, made up of segments of closely-connected people, “but segments that don’t necessarily cross-connect,” she says. The first event was attended mostly by middle-aged women, Bonnie’s friends or friends-of-friends. But each event has grown, providing Cretti and her board with “a wonderful way to understand how diverse Carbondale is.” She says it’s like Venn diagrams that are starting to overlap. “We keep getting to meet people we don’t know. Last time, lots of young people were among the 105 who showed up.” New supporters have also appeared. As the fourth event in February 2019 approached, the group’s venue, Pan and Fork restaurant, was sold. Realtor Brian Leasure stepped in and donated space at the River Valley Ranch barn. Chef Philip Kendzior prepared the food. Marilyn Murphy, the Sopris Sun’s board president, joined Sopris 100’s board. “I didn’t go that evening with a plan about how this would all work out,” she recalls. “But it was all such fun. Such a direct way of giving. You just get your 100 bucks, show up and hand over the cash. No paperwork. Sweet, simple, and fun.” “We couldn’t maintain the momentum if we didn’t keep it simple,” Cretti adds. By design, Sopris 100 Who Care doesn’t have a bank account, and although Cretti and other organizers still feel pre-event jitters, “it’s so streamlined we don’t get burned out.” If you’d like to add to the momentum, connect with Sopris 100 Who Care on Facebook, call 970.309.1901, or email Sopris100WhoCare@gmail.com.

INSPIRED BY

ARTICLE CAITLIN CAUSEY PHOTOGRAPHY KELLY SARNO

LIKE SO MANY ROARING FORK VALLEY TRANSPLANTS, ASHLEY MAULDIN MOVED HERE WITHOUT FRIENDS ALREADY LIVING IN THE AREA. Fresh from the front range about seven years ago, she was the new mom of a six-month-old daughter, and the new owner of her private counseling practice; life was changing dramatically. Although her husband’s family was close by to provide foundational support, Mauldin still felt a void without a few kindred spirits to call up for so much as a Saturday coffee date. “At that time I knew nobody,” the New Castle resident recalls. “There were plenty of mom groups out there, and I joined the Chamber and was out trying to meet people. But at the same time, I didn’t always feel like I fit anywhere. I was wondering, ‘Where are my people at?’” Fast forward a few years, and Mauldin also began to feel disheartened by the brewing social divisions she saw between otherwise good and well-meaning people after the country’s most recent presidential election. Around this time she often reflected on the wisdom of author Brené Brown, whose book “Braving the Wilderness” included the quote: People are hard to hate close-up. “That really felt powerful to me,” Mauldin says. “So I thought about how people can make true connections and acknowledge their differences, but still respect who they each are as a person.” Drawing upon her work as a therapist, her experiences as a valley newcomer, and the inspiration she drew from many of Brown’s writings on belonging and living with intention, Mauldin formulated a plan: She would start her own local women’s group. By July 2018, she did. Daring Women held its first official meeting that month in Glenwood Springs.

Daring Women IN SEARCH OF MEANINGFUL CONNECTION, ASHLEY MAULDIN FOUNDS A GROUP FOR WOMEN SEEKING TO LIVE WITH MORE INTENTION 22

Roaring Fork Lifestyle | May 2019

“We meet monthly in different locations, and each meeting has been centered around a different concept that encourages connection, acceptance, and personal growth,” Mauldin notes. “It’s an open group for any woman who is seeking that in life. We always have an activity, but it’s more than that—there is always a deeper discussion going on.” Mauldin plans each event around activities that appeal to a variety of interests, and helps facilitate themed discussions among attendees. Last month, for “Daring Women on the Rocks” at the Monkey House climbing facility in Carbondale, Mauldin steered the gathering to focus on breaking out of comfort zones and shedding expectations of perfection. This month, “Daring Women and Plants” focuses on reconnecting with nature and practicing mindfulness. In June, “Daring Women and Peace” will feature a self-development workshop to inspire women to discover the power within themselves.


“I’ve met so many incredible women already, and also seen them

“ I ’ ve m e t s o m a n y i n c r e d i b l e wo m e n a l r e a d y, a n d a l s o seen them share such meaningful c o n ve r s a t i o n s a n d ex p e r i e n c e s w i t h e a c h o t h e r.”

share such meaningful conversations and experiences with each other,” Mauldin says, adding that in the future she envisions the possibility of local Daring Women chapters for each town in the valley. “This is my passion,” she adds. “The group is becoming exactly what I hoped it would be, for myself and for other women here who want to support each other.” For more about Daring Women, find the group on: Facebook and Instagram (@DaringWomenLLC) Meetup DaringWomenLLC.com

FROM ASHLEY: FIVE DARES THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

1.

Dare to say no. “We often say yes to things we don’t have time or energy for because we worry what other people will think. When we say yes for this reason, we betray ourselves in an attempt to fit in. Saying no requires developing a better relationship with ourselves by creating clarity around what’s truly important.”

2.

Dare to embrace yo u r i m p e r f e c t i o n s .

“True connection requires a willingness to be vulnerable, to show up as our authentic selves. Instead many of us wear a mask of perfection, hiding our struggles, flaws and fears. I dare you to show up more fully yourself with those who have earned the right to see you.”

3.

Dare to get uncomfortable. “Nothing changes if nothing changes. Many people have become complacent because it is comfortable. It’s comfortable to go home, have some wine and watch Netflix. It’s important to relax and be comfortable at times but you will never grow into your best self unless you are getting uncomfortable.”

4.

Dare to dream big. “We all have something we’ve dreamed of that feels scary. We often look up the mountain we want to climb and feel so overwhelmed that we decide to not even take the first step. I dare you to take that first step by telling at least one person your dream.”

5.

Dare to be vulnerable. “Vulnerability will always give us the answer we need, not necessarily the one we want. Someone may reject us for who we really are, which is extremely hurtful but also good information. This allows us to start surrounding ourselves with people who truly love us, shortcomings and all.” May 2019 | Roaring Fork Lifestyle

Leading with Love ONE OF THE NATION’S FEW WOMEN’S RECOVERY CENTERS OFFERS HOPE AND HEALING IN GLENWOOD SPRINGS

MOMENTA RECOVERY HAS JOINED WITH 4WINDS FARM TO PROVIDE A SACRED RESIDENTIAL HEALING CENTER FOR WOMEN. We have combined visions to provide an unmatched spiritual space for women to feel safe to begin their intensive healing process from the moment they step foot on the grounds. Both Momenta and 4Winds believe every being is in recovery from something; to us, recovery means a return to being whole. Partnering with 4Winds has allowed us to not only lead with love in everything we do, but provide community and experiential processes such as archery, tai-chi, yoga, hiking, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, massage, rock climbing, mountain biking, and equine therapy along with a restorative spiritual experience that brings our clients to a place of serenity and wholeness. We chose to partner with 4Winds because we align with their philosophy on the construct of "linear thinking, circular being."  When we talk about linear

thinking, we are referring to straight-

this feels satisfyingly practical and targeted. But when you’re focused on the straight, confined highway in front of you, you compromise your peripheral view—which is to say, you miss most of what’s going on. Moreover, circular being allows us to learn from the environments we occupy. The seasons always come around again. True connection to ourselves and to the earth requires inviting our environment in rather than pushing it away, observing and connecting with natural cycles rather than artificially creating a track for humanity to traverse where the results are often dark and painfully clear. At Momenta Recovery we believe every woman is not only worthy of recovery but is inherently capable of achieving it, and that struggling women have been woefully underserved. This common truth allows us to beautifully focus on healing for women, of all backgrounds, regardless of the nature of their suffering. We firmly believe in the importance of gender-specific treatment to provide a safe container for healing to occur. Our center was created to serve this important need in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. In our work with female clients, we fervently believe that one of the key failings of the behavioral health industry lies in recognizing how addiction, trauma, and other mental health disorders are often innately connected to disrupted attachment. Attachment disorders are a broad category which describe mood, behavioral, and social relationship disorders which arise from turbulent or disruptive connections with a child’s primary caregiver in their early lives.

In Her Words: The Path to Recovery TESTIMONIAL

“I arrived here in the valley hopeless and full of shame, certain that no person or place could ever help me. Thirty days later, I can wholeheartedly say that I found myself in a safe, secure, nurturing home—a place like none I have ever felt in my life. I am surrounded by staff and housemates who show me unconditional support and have taught me what love and true belonging really mean. I’m now 68 days sober, and continue to gather the tools, support, and healing offered by Momenta Recovery. I finally feel secure with this foundation for recovery, which I never thought possible for someone like me.” — “JC,” March 2019

Queen of the Downriver Divas AIMEE CULLWICK MAKES ALL-FEMALE RIVER TRIP DREAMS COME TRUE INTERVIEW CAITLIN CAUSEY | PHOTOGRAPHY SHONDIA HOUTZER

Aimee Cullwick

TITLE: Founder & Retreat Leader COMPANY: Downriver Divas HOME BASE: Carbondale

WHAT'S THE SCOOP ON DOWNRIVER DIVAS? Cullwick: "Downriver Divas provides transformational whitewater rafting retreats for women. Our multi-day river trips integrate opportunities for personal transformation and growth facilitated by the Downriver Divas team, including: nationally-recognized executive coaches, breath work specialists, yoga teachers, a retreat photographer, and all-female professional raft guides." WHY DO YOU FEEL WOMEN NEED A SERVICE LIKE THIS? Cullwick: "Women are craving opportunities to gather in a setting that inspires connection and the space to re-imagine one’s life from a new perspective. Multi-day river trips provide the perfect backdrop to bring women in tune with their feminine power, rediscover their creative wisdom, and celebrate sisterhood." WHAT TRIP ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS SEASON? Cullwick: "I love our newest retreat, Graceful Leadership on the Main Salmon River in Idaho, August 15-22. The retreat invites women to manifest their greatest vision as a leader through a deep dive into feminine, embodied power. The Salmon River provides a stunning backdrop of fun rapids and vast sand beaches." WHAT LESSONS CAN WOMEN TAKE FROM THE RIVER INTO THEIR OWN LIVES? Cullwick: "The river helps us realign to the pace of the natural world. When we take time to attune to the flow of a river, we become aware of its pace and rhythm. On our retreats we are intimately connected to the river: floating its waters, camping on its banks, and practicing yoga on golden beaches. Attuning to the flow of the river helps women reconnect to their inner compass and intuition. The river also teaches women to experience inner beauty through the reflections of nature. Women are radiant on our retreats because they let go of societal expectations of how they should look and feel. On the river, we don’t need a mirror to feel beautiful—it’s reflected in the natural wonders around us. The most important lesson women take away from the river is how good it feels to laugh freely and openly in camaraderie with our tribe!"
