Women of Spirit
Women have traditionally played second fiddle in society and in the home. We are often described as someone’s wife, mother, daughter or sister. We are often excluded from positions of leadership. We get paid less than men and our achievements are often not taken seriously. We have to be constantly vigilant of possible male aggression and sexual inappropriateness. Yet, we are also often elevated, put on pedestals and adored – especially for our appearance and sex appeal. The discrimination is multiplied for women of colour.
“Everything is within your power, and your power is within you.” – Janice Trachtman
Women of Spirit offers a safe space in which to meet and connect with like-minded women. A space in which we can journey within and claim and own our own power and wholeness – beyond looks and stereotypical roles. A space in which to share our struggles and triumphs, heal our emotional wounds, be validated, and restore our confidence, dignity and self-respect. A supportive, uplifting space in which we can evolve into aware, insightful and more powerful, joyous, peaceful versions of the wonderful spiritual beings that we are.
