There is no age when you know everything you need to know to be a girl or a person or a woman. Our goal is to give girls tools they can use for the rest of their lives

Girl Group is ongoing and meets once a week. Currently, the group is divided into 7-9 year old and 10-14 year olds.  

We structure each session around a theme and try to provide an action component, a writing component and a discussion component. Each session begins with a ritual to land us in the space and we weave mindfulness techniques throughout the entire session.

Weekly workshops are offered at our location.  Workshops can be tailored for school visits, conference presentations and after school programs.

Shrinking our Worries

In this workshop, we’ll explore the idea that worry and confidence or comfort can exist at the same time. We’ll experiment with physical exercises, writing and drawing as a means of reducing managing worry. Students will draw their biggest worries, pop them into our magic oven and watch them shrink. The resulting charm can be strung on a necklace or kept as a talisman.
