Thank you for your interest in Tranquility Salon.

I’m delighted to share that I think you’d be a perfect fit for our group! To confirm your spot, please click the registration button below by Sunday, January 13.

While wandering the streets of Paris in search of Gertrude Stein’s home—a space where literary and art figures would meet to share stories and show their work in her salon—I dreamed up Tranquility Salon.

We’ll sit in a sensory-filled setting surrounded by like-hearted women to reflect, sip tea, learn, enjoy vegan nosh, and discuss big things. You know, that dream you hold close to your chest, that creative urge bubbling up, or that practice you’d like to make a habit.

Tranquility Salon is a four-week in-person program exploring mindfulness, creativity, self-care, and dreams/goals. Together we’ll explore ways to live with more ease through proven techniques.

Sessions include poetry, teaching, discussion, and an activity such as journaling or meditating. A few hours of self-study between sessions is encouraged.

Where: 1555 Connecticut Avenue, NW and the building entrance is 1900 Q Street, NW (between Connecticut Avenue and 19th Street)—directly across from Firehook Bakery and next door to Rakuya in the Anchorage Building. Both addresses are on the door and here’s a map.

The office is a two-minute walk from the Q Street (North) exit of the Dupont Circle Metro (Red Line). Take a hard right as you exit the Metro and walk one half block past Connecticut Avenue toward 19th Street.

There is metered street parking and paid parking garages nearby. I encourage you to allow ample time to find a spot in this bustling neighborhood.

When you arrive, press the call button, then 26 at the main entrance and I will buzz you in. Once inside, take the stairs or elevator up to the second floor, then turn left. The code to enter my suite is 5136.

Thank you so much for supporting Tranquility Salon. I’ll be back in touch shortly before we begin on January 13! Bisous. x


I loved the Tranquility Salon – what a warm, comforting place with like minded women, eating lovely snacks (hello vegan cheese!), creating, discussing, and just being. It was intimate and I came away with things that I am still using, weeks after the Salon has ended. It made an indelible impression on me, and I loved it. An especially warm and sincere thank you to the lovely ladies I was able to meet and of course a huge thank you to Kimberly, who allowed us the space and place to create and nurture our selves.—Akhila

Tranquility Salon was an oasis each time we met. It was such a pleasure to slow down each week and explore dreams and goals, self-care, creativity, and mindfulness with an engaged and insightful group. Through weekly conversation and exploration, participants shared approaches, perspectives, and resources. As a participant, I feel that I have gained new tools for finding tranquility within life’s inevitable turbulence. The experience was a delight and delivered a sense of renewal.—Lorraine

I had a couple of reasons for wanting to participate in the very first Kimberly Wilson salon series. I thrive off of the energy of others. I find that it really motivates me and helps my focus to meet personal goals and deadlines. The idea of a weekly gathering with like-minded woman, sharing dreams, projects and challenges was just what I needed to kick off the Fall season. And lastly and more lightly, I loved the photos of Kimberly’s salon and couldn’t wait to spend time there. The experience was everything I had hoped for and more. My only wish is that it went longer. The four weeks flew by! Merci beaucoup, Kimberly and much continued success. More salon, pretty please!—Patricia
