Women I Know

Truthfully, I don't know a single woman who has not struggled with the internal messages of not enough; not pretty enough, thin enough, smart enough, successful enough, you fill in the blank. It can also can come in its opposite form of too fat, too thin, too tall too short, too old, too pimply, to wrinkled, etc. 

From the time we are girls we are taught to be hypercritical of ourselves. We scrutinize every detail with an unforgiving eye. We are taught to reject our woman bodies. This creates a disconnect from an exquisite resource. 

Most of us don't think of our bodies as exquisite in any way, but they are. An invaluable resource for our instincts and intuition. For important messages about when we need to say yes, and when we need to say no. A resource of personal power and creative expression. 

When we disconnect from the wisdom of our bodies, we forget that "no" is a complete sentence. We let the Good Girl Archetype rule in our lives, seeking approval and love outside of ourselves. We become out of balance with giving and receiving. 

On the WBW retreat we will address this issue that permeates our culture as women. We will begin the practice of extreme self care.

If this speaks to you on a soul level or intrigues you in any way, then join us July 18-21 for this transformative weekend. 

There are women in need who want to attend and may not have the financial means to do so. Therefore, we have created an Indie Gogo campaign to create a scholarship fund for women in need. Click WBW for more info.

If you know a woman who may be interested, please help us by re-posting and spreading the words via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and word of mouth. Anything you would be willing to do to get the word out about the WBW project would be *greatly* appreciated!

Thank You!
