What we're about
LIKE THE PHOENIX, WE RISE!
HOW WE RISE…
These meetups are for us to learn how to empower ourselves, increase our self-confidence, share our experiences (if and when we so wish!), get out of the isolation, learn from each other and build and be part of a community to strengthen ourselves and others within a safe space. We will also, once in while, be kicking some serious butt!
TYPES OF MEETUPS:
• PHOENIX RISE Meetups
These meetups are monthly opportunities to learn tools, share experiences, thoughts and ideas on a specific theme in a chat-together format. During these meets, I provide us with knowledge, insights and tools always with the purpose to rise and become our strongest and most peaceful selves!
• FIERCE PHOENIX Meetups
These meetups allow us to learn self-defense techniques and give us the opportunity to strengthen our resolve, overcome our fears and build our self-confidence in a safe yet kick ass and fun space!

THIS GROUP IS FOR…
Women who are or have lived domestic violence. We usually assume that this violence is solely that lived to the hands of a spouse. However, our group includes violence lived at home, no matter the age and no matter the type: physical, psychological, emotional, sexual… The experience of violence we have in common is that it was inflicted by someone we knew, loved and trusted and that it lasted while in their care and presence.
We can grow from our experiences and change our future experiences and relationships—that’s what self-empowerment is about, that’s what our group is for!
YOUR IDEAS, OUR INSPIRATION!
We want to hear your thoughts and what you would like to talk about, know more about and learn. Whatever you are looking for, we will make it happen!
YOU CAN JOIN ANONYMOUSLY…
Not everyone is comfortable openly being part of such a group so feel free to create an anonymous profile that allows you to stay up to date on our activities!
SAFETY IS #1
I make it a priority to create a safe space where we can talk authentically and share openly. So please rest assured that any and all potentially hurtful behaviors will not be tolerated in this group, on the page or at any of our events.
OH AND, WHO AM I?
As a self-defense & empowerment instructor and coach, I have been extremely fortunate to work with many women who have or are living with violence. Over the years, it became very clear that I needed to develop a platform where we could have access to self-defense & empowerment training on a continuous basis, within a group of like-experienced women who understand the reality of violence and its repercussions, so that we could all go at our own pace, feel safe and be heard.
My ultimate goal is to create a community of women who, through self-empowerment, make themselves peacefully fierce and strong, live passionately and find their place and joy in life, each woman becoming an Inspiring Phoenix to herself and to others!
Please contact me anytime if you have any questions or would like to talk about anything! In the meantime, I hope you will join in and rise with us!
