Real Talk #3: Women sharing stories and growing together

Real Talk #3: Women sharing stories and growing together

Real Talk is a series of three workshops that will look at myths and barriers that plague feminism, equality and liberation for women. You can read about the first workshop here.

In an environment that nurtures acceptance and personal transformation, you will hear from women who have been on the journey of deconstructing negative belief systems and defying cultural and social expectations of women.

The third workshop will approach the subject of relationships, taking into consideration the intersections of age, gender, race, faith, class and culture. We will be talking about how we relate to each other, form connections and acknowledge our individual identities in the context of others.

“How we build and maintain relationships is a natural and constant part of our life. I have often wondered why I, like hundreds of others, have resisted being vulnerable in a relationship that can bring such rewards. Instead, I choose to hide behind barriers and perpetuate myths about the other that distort reality…”

Join us in making the ‘unconscious conscious’ by rethinking and owning what we bring into our relationships.

The workshops are intended to be a platform for the individual and collective voice of women to be heard and to form a network of women who want to shape and influence the society we live in. We will use methods including peer coaching, education and real life stories that foster learning and increase our understanding of each other by creating an environment that nurtures acceptance and personal transformation.
