This is an intersectional feminist group for female identifying folx that are interested in personal growth and connection.
Don’t know what intersectional feminist means? No worries, we’ll learn about that…
You’ll like this group if you are interested in the following:
Learning more about yourself including your intersectional identity and core personal values
Exploring how our patriarchal, western society has shaped you - getting all kinds of emotional about it (maybe pissed, sad, ashamed, guilty… all feelings are welcomed and not judged), showing some self-compassion, and then doing something about it
Interested in improving your: boundaries, communication skills and assertiveness, self-compassion, body image, sexual empowerment, spirituality, career/finances, and relationships
Hearing and learning from experts in the fields of body image, sexual empowerment, women’s personal safety, and more!
Let’s get real, this group requires:
Commitment. To get the most from group, it’s important you attend each group meeting, arrive on-time, and stay the entire time.
Vulnerability. You’ll take from group what you put in. Together, we will build a group that is confidential, safe, and nurturing, so that you can feel comfortable being vulnerable and get all you can from the group.
Full-participation. The group includes a workbook with additional readings and exercises for you to do outside of our group time so that we can have thought provoking, lively discussions in group and enjoy the maximum benefits that come from the group process.
2019 is the year that a group of female identifying folx come together to process and overcome the patriarchal scripts they've followed, or been told to follow, for too long.
This women’s only group will meet to explore how our patriarchal society has impacted each of them in a unique way.
Through education, discussion, skills acquisition, and experiential and reflective activities, we will begin to re-write those scripts. We will do this by recognizing our power, owning our stories, and asserting our voice.
The goal is to leave the group with a stronger sense of identity, skills we didn’t know we had, a sense of tight-knit community, and feeling EmpowHERed
Participants can expect to hear from guest speakers and powerful females in the Austin community.
Each participant will receive their own copy of the EmpowHER workbook written by group leader Chelsea Fielder-Jenks, LPC.
Build your EmpowHERed network and foster new relationships!
Investment: $65/per group + one time materials fee of $50
