Own Your Voice | Women – Monthly Meetup: Facilitated Discussion

January 10 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

On the 2nd Wednesday of every month, we meet for an in-person facilitated group discussion around a topic prompted in advance.

Please read through all the details below.

⏰ Event Schedule:
In order to take the conversation deep and ensure that everyone has time to share, the agenda flows like this:

  • 6:30 – 7:00pm: Arrive and settle in
  • 7:00 – 9:00pm: Facilitated discussion
  • 9:00 – 9:30pm: Hugs and goodbyes

❤️ The discussion prompt for January is:

Let’s talk about the idea of belonging. Many of us have left our homes, families, countries, cultures, jobs, or other situations that no longer served us, in order to explore new opportunities, and develop ourselves into who we want to be, and craft the lives we want to live.

All this spectacular growth and adventuring has also led many of us to feel like we don’t fit in anywhere, or at the very least to notice how difficult it is to develop new bonds and friendships as adults.

Belonging or not belonging involves many layers such as self-worth, trust, individualism, capitalism, our trauma histories, our wants and desires, as well as what is expected from us in our relationships, cultures and workplaces. And that’s just the teeny tiny tip of the iceberg.

So then…here’s the prompt:

What does belonging feel like to you?
How has your ability or inability to confidently communicate or own your voice impacted your sense of belonging – for better or for worse?

🧀 Food and Drinks:

  • Tea, wine and light snacks will be provided
  • If you have a particular food allergy or diet, please let me know

📍 Location Note:
I’ve tentatively scheduled this to be held at my home in Gansevoort.
However, because our members live as far north as Glens Falls and as far south as Delmar, I’m looking for a room for us to use somewhere between Saratoga Springs and Clifton Park. Please DM me with any suggestions.

✔️ RSVP Note:
RSVPs close at 5:00pm on the day of the event. I will not be able to reply to anyone’s questions after 5:00pm that day, so please be sure to contact me in advance if you need anything. <3

💵 Donations Note:
If you would like to help offset the cost of food and beverages, please feel free to contribute a $5-10 donation. Cash or Venmo.
