Open Fridays Issue
Embrace A Change Of Pace
The feelings of transition that come with seasonal change create a perfect opportunity for us all to branch out and try something new. This idea, combined with member feedback requesting more opportunities to meet and bond with the larger Salon community, led us to try something new. Open Fridays!
Open Fridays at The Salon are a chance to make new and meaningful connections this fall before we hunker down for winter. Come cozy in for a day of work alongside fellow Salon members. Or, just stop by and wind down your week (or wind up your weekend!) together with The Salon community. Stay for an hour, the afternoon, or the whole day.
No need for a day pass — if you’re a Salon member, we’ve got it covered. All you have to do is show up. Not a Salon member? Open Fridays is a great opportunity to sign up for a membership and get to know our community!
Until next week,

Fun Fridays at The Salon!
Mix up your week and join us every Friday this fall at The Salon to connect with our community. We’ll revel in the bustling energy of Lawrenceville, build connections with fellow Pittsburgh women, and, if the mood strikes, we may even make our way to the rooftop for a bird’s eye view of the changing leaves.
Think of Open Fridays at The Salon as a respite from the challenges of the week and the perfect way to transition to the weekend.
Available for Salon members only. See you on Friday!
*Salon Fridays are limited to up to 20 people and will not take place if our space is booked for a full day by a member or occupied for an event.*
Salon Perk! Wherever you are, Salon members can access exclusive discounts to online workshops centered on self-discovery through our program partnership with Salon member Cassie Guerin, founder of Miror! Connect now with women from all over the country.
Join the Miror community and facilitator Emmy Marie — a certified, trauma-informed life coach and NARM practitioner — to learn how to make the shift from shame to self-compassion. During the series, you’ll practice getting curious about yourself instead of being judgemental, being patient instead of using force and urgency, and developing an inner voice of kindness, acceptance, and compassion instead of cruelty and criticism. ($15 special discount for Salon members with code BLOOMING.) Register here!
Virtually gather with Miror facilitator Jordan Dann — a Gestalt therapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and Imago Relationship Therapist — to sift through how your earliest relational experiences have shaped how you view yourself and the world. Transference is a psychological phenomenon in which the feelings you have about past experiences are unconsciously redirected to the present situation. The more awareness you have about your history and what you’re unconsciously recreating, the more choice you have about changing it. ($25 special discount for Salon members with code CHOOSING.)

The Salon is a place to dabble in the unknown. We provide an admittedly eclectic (but community-led!) range of programming. One week, it might be an academic discussing the gender pay gap. Next, it might be wine tasting and collaging.
Start your day with a pick-me-up and conversation. Drop in to The Salon on (most) Tuesday mornings to hang out with (and meet!) fellow Salon members, warm up with complimentary coffee or tea, and generally have a good time. It’s a great way to get a feel for The Salon and connect with local women. Oh, and don’t hesitate to bring a friend along. Open and free to all. Register here!
This month, we’re burying our noses in Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld. “What if Hilary had never married Bill? How would she, and our country, be different? The book is a fun, sexy reimagining of one of the most important politicians today. Perfect for history buffs and romance fans alike.”
Join us to talk about critical themes and plot points, listen to others’ thoughts, and share our own impressions and opinions. No worries if you don’t finish the book or haven’t been part of the Book Circle until now — you can jump in at any time. Register here!
There's no two ways around it, parenting is complicated. So if you're looking for a group of supportive moms and mother figures who are also navigating the complex world of parenting, join us once a month for our Parenting Adolescents Meet-Up. Facilitated by Salon member Laura Jones we'll gather together to vent, laugh, cry, and be honest about your parenting struggles and successes, without judgment. Parenting isn’t easy, but our community is here for you. Register here!
Don’t forget to mark your calendar — and make a voting plan 🗳️ — for the midterm elections on November 8. We’ll see you at the polls! 🇺🇸
A Tree of Life: The Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting premiered on HBO this past Wednesday. Directed by Pittsburgh native and Academy Award Nominee Trish Adlesic, the film includes intimate interviews with survivors and families and spotlights the resolve and compassion of our Pittsburgh community. 🇮🇱💙
