The Sweet, Simple Truth about Health, Aging and the Power of Mother Nature
Many of us worry about or experience the downside to aging with ever increasing aches and pains, senior moments and rising health costs. The US spends trillions of dollars on age related health, while even children are increasingly developing chronic illness. What if it didn’t have to be this way? Health advocate and educator, Mary Kay Irving reveals how the power of Mother Nature might be on your side after all.
The power of menopause ~ fire, ashes and the phoenix rising
Menopause is powerful stuff, yet women dread, deny and are shamed for the reality of getting older. What if we challenged the narrative of ‘it is all downhill from here”? How might our experience be different? In this talk, Kerry Temple-Wood, menopause coach and mentor, re-envisions the “meno” journey, offering a roadmap that re-writes the midlife story from one of shame to one of purpose, passion, and power.
Finding focus through photography
Have you ever felt lost in your life? Photographer Shana Turner shares how she is shifting from passively experiencing her life to actively engaging in it— one split second at a time. It is a simple, practical strategy that sheds new light on an old story.
More about the Women Who Speak Showcase:
Our process began with a 3-day deep dive residential retreat, and continued with follow up group & individual work, both online and off, to fine-tune these talks and get them stage-ready.
This final showcase of work is one of the most valuable parts of our process, and you play an important role. Speaking doesn’t happen in a vacuum–it happens in community, and you are our community.
Both new and seasoned speakers can spend weeks and months crafting a brilliant talk, but putting it on its feet and in your body in front of a live audience is where the rubber meets the road.
Come witness some rubber meeting the road as these speakers offer the first public showing of their talks, before they head out into the world to claim a bigger stage.
