The world feels uncertain right now.
As I was shoving the 5th Oreo cookie in a row in my mouth, I realized that I was off! If I'm feeling isolated after a couple days of social distancing I know other women are too. And that was with my entire family home...all day...in the same house...together!
Women need connection.
We know from research that female friendships promote better health. This is an on-line virtual circle where we can come together to connect, share, and support one another. There is a lot of fear out there and left unchecked will make this whole situation worse.
Let me be clear, I am not a doctor nor public health expert. What I am, is a coach with an abundance of empathy, experience creating safe spaces for sharing and connection, and I have a bag of tools to deal with stress that I will share.
The Girlfriend Gathering is a space FOR:
~creating connection in a time of isolation
What it is NOT:
~a bitch session
~a discussion of statistics or death rates
~a place for blame, political discussions or arguments
