Some of their comments below.  For a visual retrospective and links to screened content, check out Past Programs.
  • I don't think I realized how amazing your salon was going to be. It really did feel like a ripple. Not only was the music exceptional and in a league of it's own, but the way the event was hosted created a salon-like atmosphere with truly interesting and warm-hearted people.  I'm still reverberating from it all, including the impromptu music session at the end. I felt uplifted / calmed / hopeful/ comforted / in community. 

    • T.J., Our Music & Our Dreams


  • Thank you, Christine and Michael [Mollura}, for an enlightening evening.  You are doing important work. Keep on going! 

    • Alexandra Lajoux, Our Music & Our Dreams

  • Thank you again for last night.  I am interested in attending more in the future. Without a doubt, you have mastered how to connect interesting people to compelling content.

    • Erahm Christoper, Connection & Belonging (and subsequent Featured Guest)


  • Christine, thank you for connecting us and for inspiring deeper conversation and connection. Beautiful and courageous! 

    • Cynthia Good, Connection & Belonging

  • Working with Christine is transformational.   She is  a true professional, organized, compassionate and thoughtful.  It is so rare to find someone who is committed and authentic in her mission to connect like minded others and to turn people on to new ideas with discussion.  Christine is one of a kind and I can’t wait to work with her again. 

    • ​Dr. Michael Mollura, PhD, MA, MFA Clinical Psychologist, Film / Television Music Composer, Featured Guest, Year-End Pop-Up Salon​​​​​

  • What a gift you have created by holding these events. I feel revitalized as an artist, getting to see how these films land on people and what it sparks for them, and to offer my own backstory and reflections. It’s a special and generous group of people you’ve cultivated. ​

    • ​Gabriel Diamond, Video Producer, Skoll Foundation & Filmmaker, Outside Films. Featured Guest, Summer 2020 Salon Series​​

  • It was a genuine pleasure to work with Christine and SSR to produce the Listen, Learn… Speak series.  She has a remarkable ability to spark life-changing conversation by connecting humans with thought-provoking media.

A SSR Screening Salon Ripple...

Connection from SSR gatherings happen in all sorts of ways.  Angela (SF Bay Area) and Karen (LA/Carmel) have been attending SSR Screening Salons since they began... A wonderful ripple was when they decided to meet for a hike in Big Sur.


Some of their comments from last year's salons:

  • … yet another deeply meaningful and connecting evening.  I feel like I have stepped into a new world with these beautiful and open human beings who emanate so much love and authenticity.  I look so forward to next week already. 

    • Angela Weller, The Road to Dharma

  • What a fun night! I loved the shorts on zoom dating, and like Angela, realized I might be able to do that! I cherish our Tuesday salons. Christine, you have built such profound connections and have selected the most unique and wonderful pieces of culture and art to share with us.  

    • Karen Wood, Connection & Belonging


  • Thank you Erahm [Christopher] and Christine for a deep and meaningful salon series...I am so grateful to be introduced us to you and your immensely important content. Thank you for helping me gain a deeper insight into the world of the young people around me, especially my own children. 

    • Angela Weller, Listen, Learn… Speak​

  • Thank you again, Christine for creating such powerful salons for us to explore intriguing conversations about pertinent, topical content! I look forward to each and every one of them. It's like opening a special gift each week from a friend who knows your soul and always finds the perfect present for you!
