Join us near the rotunda, New Farm Park
Women Howling is a community of inspiring, down to earth women from diverse walks of life and age groups who enjoy connecting authentically with other women to share deep diving conversation on things that matter and have a fabulous time. And we share a passion for contributing to a life and a world that works for everyone and the planet.
We meet monthly, on the night of the full moon (or close to) to dine together. We share stories of challenges and courage, we laugh lots, we focus on a particular topic that would make a difference in our lives - and oh yes, we howl (optional)! We leave the evenings uplifted, inspired by ourselves and others, with new friends and with renewed hope and energy for our lives and the world. You can attend occasionally or every month as you wish.
Women Howling at the Moon was founded and is facilitated by courage catalyst Chris Henderson. The events are not-for-profit, with all profits donated to support the work of a remote Aboriginal women's centre in central Australia.
Plus your presence will make a practical contribution to
★ help end homelessness in Brisbane
★ support a remote Aboriginal women's centre.

I love the sisterly way we get right down to the nitty-gritty in our conversations. - Pam Blamey, freelance art therapist.
