Ongoing Women's Group
with Hayley Stevens
A supportive women’s space with the focus being to discover and develop our unique gifts, heal and harness the energy of old wounds and learn how to bring ourselves and our gifts more fully into the world.
The first event will be an half day exploratory session. Those who have expressed interest can 'dip their toe in' and see if they would like to form an ongoing group.
I will structure and facilitate the early sessions but as the group progresses I am anticipating sessions being less structured and drawing more on the resources within the group. Over time it may become self-facilitating.
Initially its going to be important to focus on creating an environment of trust and safety. The ongoing group size will therefore be small (approx 6 participants) to facilitate this however the introductory session could be up to 12 women.
I will bring my experience from body psychotherapy, process work, creative process, bodywork, chi kung, meditation, dance to create opportunities to explore the theme...
discovering our unique gifts,
healing and harnessing the energy of old wounds,
and enabling us to bring ourselves (our gifts) more fully into the world (into expressive action)
Why this group?
Many of the most powerful healing and growth experiences I have experienced happened in groups. There is something about the power of a group that has taken the time to create a safe and supportive environment in which those participating can 'open up into' that which enables us to bring the hidden and disowned parts of ourselves into the world.
As with all the big room cic community events the aim is to 'sit in the fire' together with all of our differences and find a way 'to be' together.
Whilst therapeutic this is not group therapy.
The introductory event and the ongoing group will be contribution based. Contributions will go the big room cic.
If you decide to be part of the ongoing group it will be important to make a commitment to attend all agreed sessions. This will be discussed further during the introductory event.
