It all started at a discussion group while at the 4th Annual Women’s Gathering (http://vancouverunitarians.ca/events/annual-womens- gathering/). Two groups have since been created. Because we want to enrich and empower the lives of women, we are forming a third one.
What will be discussed? Topics will be selected and facilitated on a rotating basis by participants.
Those participating in the current Women’s Groups have said:
“I am delighted that we are a diverse group in terms of age and experiences. Should broaden my horizons.” – Bev
“I’m somewhat new to Vancouver and want to join a Women’s Group to get support from women. I think it’s important to foster that for myself and for other women.” – Cayla
“I thought forming a women’s group would present me with an opportunity to meet with others to construct a safe space to address concerns, challenges and tools for empowerment.
Truly, it is through shared experiences and stories that we grow, reflect and expand who we are. In life and in the context of this group we all shift through life through our interactions with others and thus we assume many roles that include: teachers, mentors, students and leaders.” – Naomi
The new group will meet the third Tuesday of the month from 7:00-9:00 pm in the Fireside Room. First session is September 17th. Spaces are limited to 12 participants so REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Contact Sheila Resels at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating.
