What we're about
By the Well Counselling X PraiseMoves Inc. proudly present: Women by the Well
This is a sharing and stretching space that utilises the teachings of Jesus Christ to promote wholeness, health, wisdom and friendship.
To keep our space sacred and safe: There will be no group prayer, no "church talk" and no debates about lifestyle choices. This group is not about any organised religion, and women from all religions and faiths are welcomed. Ladies who fail to understand this will be gently asked to leave.
What you can expect: A free space to share from your heart and connect with others on a selected topic (e.g. emotions, relationships, nutrition, body image) followed by a short scripture reading, then we move to our fitness mats (provided) and do 4-5 gentle stretch postures, each linked to a scripture which you can opt to recite. We close our time with a 5-10min guided relaxation. Healthy herbal tea and quality aromatherapy will be provided.
Women by the Well is different from catching up with your group of girlfriends because each time, it presents an opportunity to think differently, feel differently and speak differently, thus connecting a little closer to our true selves. When we experience ourselves presenting something novel from before, we give ourselves a chance to shake off old ways of being and embrace our preferred ways.
Women by the Well is also different from therapeutic groups because we are all equals in this space. I help to move things along using my experience as a certified counsellor, group therapist, and PraiseMoves instructor, but I am not trying to "do" anything to you. We are all just "being" together and offering one another the freedom and trust to come without the masks that society often demands that women wear.
Cost: is $15 per session payable prior to session to secure your space. Once payment is received, I will text you the address.
Participation: is limited to 8 women but it only takes 2 to form a group, so don't be put off by small numbers. Decide if you want to spend 1h this month attending to yourself and commit to it.
Hygiene: To keep things clean, please wear loose socks or toe socks and leave your shoes by the entrance. If you forget, toe socks are available for purchase at $5.
