Women Gathering 24th March 2019
“We're connected, as women. It's like a spiderweb. If one part of that web vibrates, if there's trouble, we all know it, but most of the time we're just too scared, or selfish, or insecure to help. But if we don't help each other, who will?” ― Sarah Addison Allen
We are thrilled to invite you to our first women gathering on 24th March 2019

Bring one token of your love from your present life/home wrapped as a gift - it could be a piece of jewelry, book, dress, shawl, crystals, candles, bath salts - something that is ready to go home with another women. Please Do not buy. Be Creative.
12. RECEIVING AND GIVING
We all have something to teach to one another and often as women, we hold ourselves from doing so. Let’s unleash our reservoir of wisdom, to share, receive and give.
We will be hosting a “WISE WOMEN WISDOM EXCHANGE HOUR” - where we have the opportunity to share a skill with our peers in 20 Minutes. We still do not know yet how it will get rolled out. However, we invite everyone to think of a skill or wisdom they would like to share. It could be anything from speaking skills, to Cooking tips;Doodling,herbal remedy; professional teaching;travel log; and even personal story. The ONLY criteria is to share something with other sisters in 20 minutes, and it has to be interesting, inspiring, and engaging.
IF YOU WANT TO SHARE ANY WISDOM, WRITE TO US @ firstname.lastname@example.org AND JUST LET US KNOW, WE DO NOT NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO SHARE IN ADVANCE BUT IT WILL HELP US TO KNOW WHO HAS LINED UP TO SHARE,SO THAT WE CAN GET ORGANISED AND HAVE A CLEAR INDICATION OF TIME.
We may have to split in groups to respect time.
We will close as per the schedule (which will be sent at least two days prior to gathering)
May we meet soonest in person
May we rejoice in owning our rightful place in this world
May we ready to embrace our wisdom
May we rejoice at the juiciness of that which is awaiting us
Until we meet in person at the soonest
Love from our heart to yours
