We are an open multicultural community with a special focus on building a healthy relationship with self and with others through authentic connection and transformative learning space.

What we offer:

• We offer an inspiring safe space and real opportunities for authentic connection and true belonging in a community setting for all women regardless of their origin, culture or religious background.

• We offer psychological, emotional, spiritual, and social support to women who want to make a profound difference in the world in which they live through a sustainable community engagement program of Courses, Focus Groups, Workshops, Retreats, Events, and Social Activities.

Our mission is to reach out with LOVE and COMPASSION by inspiring and empowering all women to reach their full potential through education to rise and shine – addressing systems that cause inequality – causing the ripple effect – influencing profound positive, lasting change.

Finale Focus Group Theme Evening for Reflections, Celebration & Ideas for 2020

Dear lovely members, Can you believe it – our last Focus Group for 2019 is on Monday, November 25th ONLY three weeks away. Let’s make it Focused and Memorable!! And considering Christmas is only seven weeks away, let’s farewell 2019 with the colours of Christmas as our theme. We invite you to come dressed in the colours of Christmas, red, green, gold, silver, etc. But let’s not limit ourselves with what we wear, why not bring a plate of food that goes with the theme of Christmas to share. We are so delighted to let you know that one of our very loyal members, Lynne, has kindly offered to host our last Focus Group at her home in Bowral. However, for privacy reasons, the address will only be available to those members who will be attending our final Focus Group on Monday, 25th November. You can reserve your name on Meetup and providing your situation does not change, the address will be emailed to you two days before the event. The main focus of our final Focus Group is to reflect and share our transformative learning experiences throughout 2019 as well as gathering our collective ideas and suggestions to include in planning our way forward, especially for creating our 2020 year program. We welcome your ideas and reflections, so whether you have joined us through our Social events, Focus Group gatherings, Educational Programs, or our Yearly Retreat, let’s make our last Focus Group memorable by joining the conversation and being part of co-creating our way forward. If you are unable to join us on Monday 25th for our final Focus Group for 2019, we hope you can join us for the end of the year Celebration party – please look out for more details on that shortly. We are so looking forward to continuing this amazing transformative journey with you. With love Tisiola and the EWP Leadership Team

GREAT NEWS for EWP 2020 Retreat

Hello Lovely Members, It’s that time of year again when we look to book accommodation for our next EWP Retreat. We are excited to have been able to book the same accommodation as last year at Sundara Beach House, Werri Beach, 42 Pacific Avenue, Gerringong. This was due to all attending member’s positive feedback regarding their experience at staying in Sundara in March 2019. Our booking has been made for Friday 6th March – Sunday 8th March 2020. If you are interested in joining us and if you want to secure your “spot”, would you kindly pay a deposit of $50 or more to ensure you have booked your bed. Unfortunately, we are not able to give you the total cost per person for the weekend until we are certain of the number of members attending. We are most likely looking at a total amount of around $200 - $270 per person depending on the type of bed and room you have booked. I hope you are able to join us in March next year as we intend to have a weekend full of fun, laughter, learning, eating, drinking and hopefully dancing….all within two days!
