Women are ready to step into their power, live intentionally and lead from their own values, voices and visions. With discussion and engaged inquiry, we investigate how our cultural inheritance has influenced and shaped our beliefs and feelings about what is female, beautiful and correct. We create group generated experiments to heighten awareness of the projections and introjections of how a woman “should be”, act and look. Using a relational gestalt approach, breath and sensory work, qi gong, movement and more, we explore how our experiences of “dimming down”, staying hidden and trapped live in our bodies and how we disconnect and loathe them. Through co-creative, collaborative process, we re-define what is beautiful, admired and respected about being a woman, bring courage and value to our aging process, reclaim the power and sacredness of menstruating and menopausing, transform hating our bodies to loving them and shame into creative possibility and empowerment. We will attend to how womanhood is relevant to our work as clinicians, what women have to offer the wider community and influence of the feminine on the greater field.
