Woman’s Group

Woman’s Group

Courage, Compassion, Connection

A safe place for women to promote healing through sharing, honesty and deep conversation. The focus will be on empowerment, inherent worthiness, perfectionism, and self-compassion. For centuries, women have proven the power of storytelling. This new group will allow us to not only own our stories, but to take control of their endings.

*The next group is TBD and led by Dina Hilaris, MS. The cost is $320.
