Women Taking Flight

So many women have said to us: “I know it’s time to think bigger, to step into my power, to rise to the next level. But I don’t know how!” We long to tell our stories and be seen. We’re searching for the wisdom that will help us put the final pieces in place. We know we need the support and encouragement of others and often, that can be hard to find in the workplace or sometimes even at home.

If you want to step into the second part of the year clear, focused, and with that sense of wind beneath your wings, then Women Taking Flight is for you.

During the first part of the day we’ll be sharing stories that help us to focus on what we most value and find the gold in our learning so far this year. We’ll use what we uncover to craft a powerful question that can support us to think higher and move beyond our present view of what’s possible.

During the afternoon we’ll join together in wisdom circles, bringing our questions to the Flow Game and supporting each other to gain clarity, ground and insights to power up the future. We’ll use both our experiences and one of our most powerful gifts as women—our intuition.

This will be a highly interactive day focused on investing in your most potent resource—yourself. Come with your questions and an open mind. Come prepared to support and be supported. Come prepared to meet the next most powerful version of yourself.

The day will be hosted by Mary Alice Arthur and Samantha Slade and will take place both in English and French. During the afternoon Flow Games will be offered by trained Flow Hosts, supporting you to find wisdom and companionship in your circle around the game.

We have space for a maximum of 30 participants. Please reserve your spot to avoid disappointment.
