The Busy Woman's Tribe - BOUNDARIES
"In [modern] society, it is more acceptable to be polite and hypocritical than to be direct and honest. If you find it difficult to say 'no', remember that you say 'no' to someone else in order to say 'yes' to yourself." ― Dominique Loreau
Are you one of those people who never turn someone down? Have you more than once regretted accepting an invitation? Do you find yourself giving and giving without receiving? Many of us find it easier to say 'yes' than it is to say 'no'.
We feel guilty disappointing people or even compelled to please everyone around us. As a result, we are celebrated as Miss Nice, sometimes at the expense of our personal well-being. The truth is: healthy boundaries are an integral self-care practice. We must fill ourselves before we pour into others. Learning to say 'no' to the good person others expect you to be allows you to say 'yes' to the best person you are meant to be.
In this experience, we will tune in to our needs and desires, explore our personal boundaries, challenge our beliefs around saying 'no', and practice asserting ourselves to protect our boundaries.

The Busy Woman's Tribe -
Community gatherings are vital to life. Since the beginning of time, women have recognised the power of community for healing, connection and empowerment.
Amid the hustle and bustle of the outside world, The Busy Woman's Tribe provides an opportunity for busy women to pause, reflect and witness our personal needs. Offering a safe space where every woman can speak from her heart and be heard, be seen and be honored - just as she is.
We will engage in conversations about topics that are important and meaningful, combining that with tools such as yoga, journal writing and partner sharing exercises. Drawing upon our collective wisdom, we will amplify our feminine strength and create the future we desire.
