Recovering the Sexy Sisterhood: An Experiential Workshop
July 16, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm| $99
Let’s face it. We women need to update our relating to one another.
We have been trained to compete, to suspect, to make nice, to hide, to stay superficial and to sabotage in order to keep one another small. And this is if we are friends!
If you have ever been blindsided by a woman’s betrayal, you know the pain is agonizing. We have a deep longing to be backed by our sisters, but so few models for how to sustain that and so few pathways for how to communicate our truth in a way that reveals all of us.
Our default is to hide our truths from one another for lack of knowing how to speak them. And this keeps us very stuck.
We need a different way.
What would happen if we came out of hiding, dropped our age old fighting over men and prioritized our alliances with one another instead?
How would our communities change if rather than competing with one another we women approached our sisters with a genuine attitude of honesty, abundance and allegiance?
And what if in this process our sexuality shifted from a hidden weapon of manipulation between us to a generous wellspring for inspiring and lighing one another up?
Join Jessica Tartaro and Ajna Shakti on Saturday, July 16th, for a bold workshop dedicated to answering these very questions.
Introducing, ~RECOVERING THE SEXY SISTERHOOD~
At this experiential workshop, will gather as women to:
– Explore and reveal the perceptions that keep us alienated from other women
– Use humor and courage to identify our patterns of disconnection
– Engage tools for taking responsibility and making amends for ways we have divided rather than united with sisters
– Learn personal and group practices that can shift our inner dialogue about women towards compassion beginning with our inner dialogue about ourselves
– Discover how our sexuality holds a mangificent key for shifting our deficit mentality into generosity and abundance with one another
– Practice ritual as an alchemical tool for designing a different template for relating to women
Doors will open at 2:45. Workshop starts promptly at 3pm.
This will be an experiential, interactive afternoon. Come prepared to share your voice and stories as well as learn from others.
Following the workshop, participants are invited for a group dinner. Restaurant TBA. 7:30pm onwards.
