A Being Human workshop for women
In our culture there is very little acknowledgement or recognition of women as sacred; worthy of or regarded with reverence and awe, even by ourselves.
In this workshop we will be making an inner pilgrimage; a journey to a sacred place.
On this journey we will be exploring what it means to each of us to be a woman within the context of what are known as the life forces. These forces, which exist both within us in our genetic coding, our feelings, actions and beliefs, and around us in the everyday world, act as our servants, facilitating us in our lives. Often, however, we are unaware of how they affect us. Through group discussion and individual exercises, this workshop will enable us to share our experiences about what qualities we have brought from our culture, our ancestry, and our genetic coding.
We will explore our feelings about being a woman, and whether those feelings uplift us or hold us where we are in our lives. We will discuss our relationships as women with our partners, our families, and our friends, and see what is needed to expand our view of ourselves and the world. Through the willingness to look within, and surrender to the Creator, we will begin to touch the essence and sacredness of ourselves as women; and what that means to each one of us in our own unique lives.
