This coming summer it will be Sisterhood’s 3rd birthday. Sisterhood started out as a dream to bring like-minded women together, to create, support and nourish each other…. my personal dream of connection has now grown.
In these past three years, Sisterhood has held four retreats and one supper, with countless creative workshops, mindful talks and experiences and a bringing together of over 200 women. Sisterhood has grown beyond that seedling of a dream in late 2014… into a beautiful tree.
Without sounding too ‘out there’ I would love this Sisterhood ‘tree’ to grow with many branches allowing all the sisters involved and participating to individually bloom and grow.
2018 is the year of making this happen. I have so many ideas I’m bouncing around, and I need to action these, this year.
- Online courses for women in small businesses and freelancers – not just within the online world but reaching out to all women who need support in their professional career.
- Workshops and lunches to connect women in the physical world. Nothing beats a long leisurely conversation over delicious food.
- Self-love and self-care will be prominent in all of the messages across 2018. With workshops on meditation, yoga, self massage, nutrition, Chinese medicine, aromatherapy and more.
- Of course, we will explore a retreat once again. With a new location, in the UK and hopefully within Europe too.
- Providing an online space for women to connect, share their career highlights, their work and offer help and support in a nurturing space.
Starting off 2018 – I am delighted to announce our first event:
