When I envisioned a support group for women, I had no idea just how powerful sisterhood, connection and community would be.
This dream I have held on to for so, so, so many years finally came to life on Tuesday 8th October and I could not be any prouder and genuinely grateful for the women who attended the very first Soul Sister Support session.
We laughed, we cried, we embraced real, raw, honest conversation.
Now I am not going to lie to you, the days leading up to this gorgeous event was definitely a mixture of nerves and excitement. My mind would gently wander off into that zone of freak out and self-criticism, you know the zone, “Oh you’re not good enough, you don’t know enough, who do you think you are, what business is it of yours to hold space for women that you don’t know, they are not going to care about what you have to say”.
Powerfully, I pushed all that mindless chatter out the way and told it in quite stern words, “There is simply no room for you here, this amazing support group is happening whether you, my cheeky lil’ ego, like it or not”.
Well, beautiful lady, I am sitting here right now typing these words with such radiance in my heart, a deep soulful connection to not only myself but the women who were brave enough to show up and share their stories, straight from their heart.
Envisioning a safe space for women to come together all those years ago, I never in my wildest dreams could have wished for a more genuine, heart opening and soul connecting space, than we experienced today.
I would love to take this opportunity to share with you a few words that the amazing women had to say:
“After attending this event I have a sense of lightness and a tad more confidence within myself”
“I have focus and a sense of where I want to go in recovering emotionally from past events”
“The number 1 thing I am going to do is move forward with my life”
“I am starting to recognise my self-worth”
Our journey through this session was based around procrastination and boy, what a journey it was. We flowed with practical exercises and were stopped in our tracks with realizations that we never even thought were there. Light bulb moments were had and our insight was increased as to why we procrastinate within certain areas of our life and so much more.
At the beginning of this event we were all strangers, in the end we were sisters, soul sisters. In a matter of 2 and a half hours we had journeyed deeper within ourselves than we thought was possible, we unravelled stories we had been telling ourselves over and over that just were not true. After all, we just don’t have the evidence to say that they are.
Soul Sister Support isn’t just another event, it is an ‘experience’, a deep dive into your own soul and a connection with your self that is long overdue.
A statement we shared and all believe to be true is:
“Why can’t every week start like this”
If you would like to join us for the next Soul Sister Support group we would absolutely love to see you there and connect with you.
The next session is on Tuesday 12th November from 9:30am-12:00pm and is all about Self-Care & Burn-Out. You will find all the event details here.
