Every woman has a choice as to how she wants to live her life. She can sit back, wait for what she wants, complain when it doesn't happen and give up. OR . . .she can stand up for what she wants and find a way to make it happen for herself. She can be a victim. OR . . .she can be a co-creator of her life. Empowerment is about standing up for what you want in your life, having a dream, making it happen and holding your power in the world. Remember the test of character isn't what happens when life is flowing with ease. Your character emerges when you are challenged. In conflict, intimacy can deepen if you don't give up and walk away. In pain, strength can emerge if you look for the gifts. In grief, you can find many blessings if you choose to look hard enough. In fear, you can find tremendous courage and a willingness to be alive, if you allow yourself to move through it. Sheri Zuccato 2003

Woman Within

Woman Within International is a not-for-profit organization that offers opportunities for women to discover the power of who they are.

The Woman Within Training Weekend

Since 1987 over 11,000 women from 22 countries have chosen to experience the power and transformation of the Woman Within Training Weekend.

The Weekend was designed to provide a safe and nurturing environment for you to explore how your life could be different and to reaffirm your wholeness as a woman. It is a space for you to experience yourself and all the power and beauty that lies within you.

How can one weekend possibly change your life? For some, it is the opportunity to be heard as they discover their voice and speak their truth. For others, it is having the space and time to experience intense emotions without judgment. Still for others, it is the rare experience of compassion and strength created by women coming together to witness, accept, empower and honor themselves.

By Women, for Women

The Woman Within Training Weekend was created by women, for women. It is a unique opportunity for you to explore your essence as a woman and your life choices. The training is not therapy. It offers a series of exercises, guided imagery and intense individual and group work so you can see and transform what holds you back. The one-to-one staff ratio allows for personal attention and ensures that you will be witnessed and supported as you reclaim your passion for life and belief in yourself.

How will you know if this is the right time in your life to do the Woman Within training? At Woman Within, we trust that each woman intuitively knows what is right for her. The training provides the tools to delve deeper into your own wisdom and see which parts need further acknowledgment and integration so you can live life to the fullest. We are there to support you - in all your potential and power, with all your shadows and challenges - to be who you want to be. The only requirement for attendance is an openness to experiencing yourself.
