Issue 88
CIRCULATION: 5,010 (and growing!)

Eight years ago this month, I founded Spirited Woman. I was living in Santa Barbara at the time, and I offered my first Spirited Woman Workshop in October, 2002.

When the first woman called to sign up, I said, "You want to attend?" I was so surprised. And proud.

What I've always wanted to do is help women realize YOU ARE ENOUGH AS YOU ARE. Because you are. I created Spirited Woman as a community to support you. Believe in you. A place to check in on your aliveness.

Since that first workshop - Spirited Woman has grown from a workshop company to a lifestyle company. As with any business, we've changed with the times.

We've had over 100 sponsors (since 2007, which is amazing) - mostly women just like yourself - cultural creative entrepreneurs - who believed in us and continue to help us grow. Close to 100 women have been showcased in our Spirited Woman Top 12 Picks List. Over 200 have listed an ad with us.

I've personally mentored over 50 women in Nancy's Inner Circle, taught over 150 women in our past workshops in cities across the country, hosted 100's more in our special events and downtown conversation series, sold 1000's of Spirited Woman products - from freedom scarves to plantable stationary.

Since July, 2008, we've published one of the most brilliant blogger teams on the planet. Extraordinary women who give us a daily dose of positive news and keep us informed.

And earlier this year - after a battle - which I will one day write about - Spirited Woman became a Registered Trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Yes, I ran off a lot of achievements - but it's been eight years!

Just like anything in life - I don't know where Spirited Woman is headed. I'd like to do more speaking and media so the company gains more awareness.

I am brimming with ideas and a new future. All I firmly know - is that I am COMMITTED to our passion. Growth. Support for one another. And the belief that it is BETTER TOGETHER.

I invite you to celebrate with me - because without YOU, Spirited Woman would be a concept in my mind only.

As always, I would like to thank you for your support, comments, enthusiasm, and friendship. Many of you have been with us from the beginning.

Happy Eight Years!

Nancy Mills
Founder, The Spirited Woman

Following Gowins' own journey through meeting his spiritual teacher Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan and the lessons he learned along the way, Practical Sufism offers insights into the age-old spiritual concerns with attaining happiness, making commitments, and understanding love and death.
