We share a passion for contributing to a life and a world that works for everyone and the planet, particularly around dimensions such as peace, social justice and the environment - and in being all that WE can be to have that happen.
Each month we focus on a particular topic that will make a difference for our lives and further afield. Topics we have addressed during 2016 included honouring self, stepping into our courage, the art of saying NO, boundaries, befriending your inner critic and claiming our greatness, amongst many others.
November: a glimpse
While procrastination as a focus might at first sound heavy (as in, generally for many of our LEAST favourite topic) - this time it was the opposite!! The experience was that of an enjoyable and even liberating exploration with heaps of laughter, relief even! - and LOTS of AHAs that women took away to create the results they want in their own lives.
And below, a vignette kindly produced by filmmaker Wendy Rogers to give a sense of the evening - including the howling! Enjoy!
(Video duration 1:41 minutes)
Also special thanks to Howler, film producer and online media strategist Wendy Rogers for suggesting it's time to share this work with the world, and for creating the first video vignette of a monthly gathering. Neat!
What participants have to say
Examples of participant feedback can be found here - and below, in Melina's and Margot's stories.
Melina, an accomplished designer, happened across Women Howling through social media a couple of weeks ago and decided to check out the November gathering. Just one evening has shown her this is the community she has hoped to find. Now? 'Can't wait for the next howl'.
Margot, a health industry senior manager, attends Women Howling anytime she can between travelling for her job and travelling for pleasure. Recently back from Mexico, Margot sent this note out of the blue about her new position and the contribution that being part of this sisterhood has and is continuing to make in her life.
If you sense this could be a community for you, we extend an invitation to join us for the final Women Howling at the Moon gathering of the year. This is our gala celebration of women in Brisbane and beyond who are up for making a difference. It’s being held on 13 December. The evening's theme, "Fly Me to the Moon", will be perfect for celebrating, supporting and inspiring each other with the visions we hold for ourselves and our world.
