Decolonizing Wellness Through Sacred Feminine Wisdom

Decolonizing Wellness Through Sacred Feminine Wisdom

According to Andrea’s Anishinaabe Elders, now is the time of the Rise of the Sacred Feminine. A time when we remember our interconnectedness to all of Life and gentleness and compassion begin to rise. Women are meant to lead this change. But they can’t effectively lead if they are burnt out, blind to the inequities around them, or ignoring that deep sacred call. Amplifying Wellness Through Sacred Feminine Wisdom will help you understand your inherent gifts, encourage you to speak your truth, and will raise the value you place on Indigenous and Sacred Feminine knowledge.

The Powerhouse in you: Reclaiming your Feminine Power

The Powerhouse in you: Reclaiming your Feminine Power


Ever felt frustrated, angry or confused about how to own your power with someone or a situation? Deep down, you know the behavior is unacceptable; however, you try to convince yourself they have good qualities too, or it doesn’t happen all the time. “There are no victims, only volunteers,” according to Robert Anthony’s book, Beyond Positive Thinking. The negative toll on your body, mind and spirit when you don’t take action and reclaim your feminine power often manifests in aches and pains, low self-esteem, fatigue and, some cases, depression.

What if there was a framework or a guide to help you lead from that powerhouse place within you? That place where clarity, confidence and self-compassion reside? In this presentation, Cate will be sharing her practical and powerful four-room framework; your mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually fit rooms so you will have an even more significant positive impact in your organization, family or community.

A Domestic Violence Survivor
Joy to Be Had and Life to Be Lived”

Joy to Be Had and Life to Be Lived


Statistics state that, on average, a woman in an abusive relationship may leave seven times before finally ending the relationship. Abuse thrives underground, so unearthing the red flags and warning signs of an abusive relationship is critical to empowering women to take the steps needed to get out. Carolyn shares her experience with domestic violence and urges all of us to do our part to support and empower others on their road to freedom and recovery.

Express Your Feminine Power
through connecting & conversation


Connecting Opportunities

Throughout the event, you will have the opportunity to connect with the speakers and fellow attendees. Have your voice heard and join in powerful conversations in the 'Social Lounge.'

Expand your network in one-to-one speed networking. Connect, converse, and contribute to support each other. Make your contributions count and connect on Linkedin, or exchange info to carry on the future conversation. I never thought I would like a one-to-one online networking experience. Then I did it. I made more valuable connections in 20 minutes and collaborating with several of those women six months later. Try it. You'll even get a suggested "conversation starter" for those who dislike networking. We got you!


This is secret... there will be prizes, so you'll want to stay the entire event!
