About the Event

CONNECT - with yourself and other women, COWORK - in a space that feels like home but so much better, COMBINE - your role and soul so you can bring your whole self to everything you do


  • 9:15am - 10:30am - Vision into 2024 with your Body, Mind, and Community with Krissie McMenamin: How do you want to be in this next year? Flowing. Alive. Adventurous. Connected. Truth-telling. Peaceful. Sucking every ounce of juice out of life? Join us for a morning of grounding, moving, writing, speaking, and embodying how we want to show up this coming year. There is so much power in sharing with others what we want for ourselves, so let's connect in community and do just that! Visioning has become a birthday ritual for Krissie McMenamin, who is on a mission to spark authenticity and aliveness through immersive experiences, emergence coaching, and leadership development training. She will be guiding us through this experience on the day before a big birthday (40!).
  • 11am - 12pm - Tension Release Exercise with Alyce Sorokie: Our bodies "speak' our history! The experience of mental, emotional or physical pain often results in stress & traum, which can interfere with the correct and accurate perception of people, places, objects and experiences in the present. In this workshop, Alyce will teach you how to remove physical & emotional blocks, allowing you to hone in on your body's natural wisdom to inherently heal or shift.
  • 1pm - 2:30pm - SoulCollage Open Studio: Experience this playful, yet profound, practice in the guidance and warmth of ALTAR Community! No prior experience or artistic ability needed - just bring yourself!
  • 3:30pm - 4:30pm - Beyond Menopause Book Talk with Catherine Marineau, PhD: In Beyond Menopause, Catherine Marineau, PhD, and Carolyn Torkelson, MD, bring to light the unique healthcare needs of postmenopausal women, offering integrative-holistic approaches that bridge the gap between conventional medicine and systems of holistic healing. Women in this stage want to remain healthy, vital, and engaged, yet they are often overlooked in the healthcare system. Beyond Menopause shows women how to prime their voice for self-advocacy and establish collaborative relationships with their health practitioners. 
  • 4:30pm - 5pm - Home Before Dinner Happy Hour

Get a peek at all of the goodness ALTAR has to offer. ALTAR is designed to encourage an optimal rhythm between focus and flow. Our space encourages intentional breaks throughout your day, increasing your energy and productivity, all while promoting soul-quenching connection with other women. This balance is what sets ALTAR apart as a restorative alternative to traditional coworking spaces!

Grab a friend and join us at our sanctuary in the city. At ALTAR, we’re curious seekers, wondering what would be possible if women were able to integrate body, mind, and spirit. Join us for any or all of the following free programs for an entire day dedicated to this integration of all of our parts.

ALTAR’s Bring Your Soul to Work Day kicks off at 9am. Join us for coffee and conversation, nurturing programming and  open coworking available all day long. Drop by anytime to get a taste of ALTAR so you can connect more deeply to yourself and other women, and leave feeling whole, supported, and more like YOU.
