Donations welcome (Bursaries available) We aim to be accessible to all, if you are unable to pay, please discuss this with the team upon arrival.
Each session will be facilitated in the style of a ‘talking circle’, where all voices are respectfully heard, and establishing shared values will allow us to explore diverse perspectives. We will engage in interactive activities to stimulate thought around women and peace building, followed by guided times of personal reflection on the topic of the day, followed by a tea, cake and story- sharing. No more than 13 women in the space. Bring your slippers, grab a cup of tea and let’s connect, inspire and equip one another towards becoming peace builders, starting with ourselves.
