International Women’s Day
8th March, 2016
“It takes some skill to hold a group of strong women, and Rachel & Monika do just that. Woven is an incredible healing container for Women to let down their guard, to bring all of themselves, and to discover the woman within us that is unstoppable. Every woman needs a tribe behind her, and WOVEN is a tribe that can hold us all. –Sage Lavine, Business Coach and Inspirational Speaker
We spend most of our lives moving from point A to point B. This past weekend I had the good fortune of spending two days sitting in circles, co-creating in circles and walking in circles with women. Sage was one of the many inspiring speakers at Woven World Summit here in San Francisco. She describes beautifully my personal Woven experience. The event was “an incredible healing container for Women”.
WOVEN is a network of face-to-face circles of women who gather to support one another to THRIVE. They meet in communities all across the U.S. to explore real stories, wisdom, and care for one another and themselves. They experience heart-felt connection, deep listening, authenticity and humility as they discover greater meaning and purpose, joy, and health. Woven circles are united by an online community and resources, offline events, and annual conferences.
On International Women’s Day, I am very grateful for our local W.O.M.A.N., Inc. community. As women, we need our circles holding us. Incredible things happen when women are empowered and safe to contribute to society and our local communities.
