May 23 - Calm In the Eye of the Storm: Mindfulness for Resilience
Did you know that our brains are wired to go negative? No wonder life can be so challenging! In this session we will explore the negativity bias of our brain. Why does our brain highlight the negative in life and how can we incorporate mindfulness practices to enhance the positive and create RESILIENCE (the ability to bounce back from negative or challenging things that happen to us).

This session will include a breakdown of the how’s and why’s of mindfulness including one minute experiences of practice so attendees will walk away with the knowledge of how to practice themselves!  


May 30 - Overcoming Obstacles, Empowerment and Self-Care
To wrap up Sexual Violence Awareness Month, please join us as survivor Nara Pfeifer shares her incredible story, with a focus on ending the silence and stigma surrounding mental health; the importance of self-care; and her personal journey of empowerment and self-discovery.   Nara was assaulted at a very young age, and ostracized and harassed by her peers.  As a result, she lived many years with depression and anxiety, and turned to drugs and alcohol as a means of coping.  Now healthy and healing, Nara is ready to share her story to help others understand the impact of sexual assault, with the intent of helping others to overcome their own obstacles, whatever they may be.

This will be an interactive and intimate conversation.  There is healing in discussion, and hope after trauma.  We will have door prizes and all participants will go home with a self-care package!

Registration for Women’s Circle beginning April 25 is now open!
