Women’s Stories – Using kindness to connect to yourself, your body, and your communities.

Being kind is about allowing others to feel truly seen and heard. But we cannot genuinely be kind to others unless we are first kind to ourselves. If we accept all that we both like and dislike about ourselves with compassion, then we can find our true authenticity. We believe that this vulnerable action of compassion and radical self-acceptance is the way to enable change.

Using different art forms and playful experiment, we explore the process of self- awareness and reflection to understand the concept of what ‘being enough’ looks like. Participants can book 1, 2 or all 3 taster sessions:

1) Stories through gentle drama techniques (7 Jun)

2) Stories through the spoken word (11 Jul)

3) Stories through movement (10 Aug)

These 3 free tasters are followed by a 5-week course starting on 12 Sept 24

What is it?
A creative, safe space for women to come together, feel seen and heard to tell their stories and explore how being authentically kind to ourselves impacts our relationships with ourselves, others and our communities. 

What will I get from taking part?
A dedicated time in the week for you to be curious, creative and held by a group of women. Share as little or as much of your stories as you wish but through kindness, conversation and gentle experimentation of different art forms, you’ll explore thoughts and feelings to discover how self-acceptance brings you a greater sense of wellbeing, belonging and happiness.

Who is leading the project?
Women’s Stories is co-facilitated by Jo Reil a Theatre Practitioner and Lucia Fitzpatrick a GP and a Leadership Coach. Their differing expertise and skills come together in a unique collaboration, which they have used to empower women in their Dare to Wonder workshops and in leading Women’s Circles.

Do I need experience to take part?
This workshop is exclusively for women, with no other requirements to take part. 

I have additional needs. What support is available?
If you have accessibility requirements of any kind, please get in touch with Jo Reil to discuss how best we can support your place on the programme.
