In this workshop, Sarah will share with you a powerful technique to help you master your emotions, clear fears/negativity, increase confidence & reignite the passion & creativity that lies within you. In a live demonstration, you will have the opportunity to experience the power of the EFT technique.
12.30-1.00 Isik Tlabar: “Goddess Circle”
“Most of the time, we walk around disconnected from our bodies, thinking too much. We try to figure it all out in one go and we end up feeling exhausted.
Through movement, you can become present within ourselves and receive what your body needs. The still, quietness we all have within is the space that knows what’s best for you, you will access that space of total freedom.
In this movement workshop, you will awaken your senses and come back into your body through breath and movement. Your body naturally knows what it needs. We’ve been conditioned to not trust its wisdom and to listen to our head instead. Movement with focused awareness is the key to come back into our bodies.”
1.00-1.30pm Tichea Brade and Ella Mesma Company: “Speed Mentoring”
During this 30 minute session, you will have the opportunity to mentor and be mentored by other awesome women at the event.

Please bring 1 or 2 problems/issues/challenges/questions you would like to address during the session.
1.30-2.00pm Suzy Miller: “How to prevent world wars, protect the next generation and help your friends, families and work colleagues save thousands by being an informed peacemaker”.
Suzy Miller creates resources and events for families who want to take more peaceful routes through the major life events that families navigate, and in this talk she explores with her audience how we can all have a massive impact on the lives of children and families, using knowledge and tools readily available – but that most of us are not really aware of. At the very least, we can all use this knowledge for the benefit our friends, families and work colleagues – and just maybe, we can have a much greater influence than we realise on society and our world as a whole.
Suzy Miller is the UK’s unique ‘Alternative Divorce Guide’, A Divorce Strategist, Public Speaker and Trainer, featured on Radio 4 Women’s Hour, the Daily Mail and C5’s The Vanessa Show.
Suzy has collaborated with the Ministry Of Justice in helping to promote Dispute Resolution and educate couples on how to have a more peaceful divorce.

4.00-4.30pm Grazia Tribulato: “Tell your story like a star”
Often we feel the urge to communicate who we are and what we do to the world and we think that we don’t know how. We look for a formula that is going to work and try to follow proven successful examples. After working with a-list stars and brands on their personal branding and campaigns I realized authenticity is the real game and in our time together will share will you a structured approach to your brand storytelling.

5.00-5.30pm Margaret Aberdeen: “50+ & Feeling Fabulous
… is like winning the lottery”
Many people have a great deal of fear about ageing, and I am all for staying as healthy, in shape, and young-feeling as possible. But at the same time, I am reaping the fruits of ‘womanhood’ that you can only get from having been around for 50+ years. Join Margaret V Aberdeen, a domestic violence and cancer survivor, author of Priceless Roles of a Mother to learn why ageing is a ‘bonus plus’ with value and purpose of its own. She will talk about by being ‘selfish’ with mindfulness and fierceness, how she unleashed her femininity and self-worth to live the life she deserves.

7-8pmCanapés by Sadie’s Love and inspirational chats with other superheroines
Elsabet Yonas: ‘Sisterhood’Sisterhood was created in 2017 for stage and later adapted to film. The piece came together with ease – an organic process. It started off, as an excuse to connect through movement but soon became a piece about the power of female energy. We explore various layers within our relationship, but it remains dominated by love.Comovementlab: A Blind CollaborationWhen an artist strips down all of their conditioning, cultural references and genre attachments, they are left with only pure senses, intuition and skillset. The collaboration explores how two strangers whose craft is music making use only their immediate creative stimulus and the tools they have with them to collaborate. Limiting communication to solely acoustic expression, the artists are “blind” to any other sensory queues, nor have they ever met or heard about each other beforehand. Thus, without preparation, assumptions or direction, they get acquainted for the first time through their creative mediums. The audience gets to experience an entirely unique process of two strangers exploring a creative chemistry together.Dr Nathalie Teitler: Dancing Words: Speaking from the Body-Dance Poetry films (arts activism)Showing of 3 dance poetry films related to the female body and arts activism covering honour killing, the one child policy and stillbirth. The films are made with some of the UKs top female poets and dancer/choreographers who also come from backgrounds of diversity so that all aspects of them represent women pushing back and using the body as a space of empowerment, creativity and empowerment.Emma HoustonEmma Houston is a versatile artist with a keen interest in all forms of movement and choreography. Known predominantly as a Bgirl, Emma uses her Contemporary Dance training to create her own individual style of movement, incorporating flow and strength to move fluidly and dynamically. After gaining a First Class BA Hons from Trinity Laban’s conservatoire of music and dance, Emma has been working professionally in various capacities within the dance industry.

A work in progress piece that questions our relationship to the erotic and asks ‘how does it feel to be in your body?’Key ____ division ∞ infinity symbol ∃ there exists ≜ equal by definitionEmbodiment ___________________ = Creativity∞ ∃ Spirituality ≜ THE EROTIC Pleasure“There are many kinds of power, used, unused, acknowledged or otherwise. The erotic is a resource within each of us that lies in a deeply female and spiritual plane, firmly rooted in the power of our unexpressed or unrecognized feeling…” Audre LordeElla Mesma Company: An extract from LADYLIKE performed by Hsing Ya WuA piece using Afro Cuban, Breaking, Rocking and Contemporary dance theatre to focus on the female perspective. Themed around the slang word for woman as ‘chick’ or ‘hen’, Ladylike is a celebration of wonderful women and a provocative protest at gender roles, the masks we wear, sexual violence and sexism. Absurd, comical and romantic, four wild women ceremoniously undress timeless and universal stories of womanhood. This work contains some disturbing scenes of a sexual nature.Dor Frenkel, Julia Testa Julia Testa Images – What is good projects / Testando 123 and @amitsegall: Endless BoundariesWhen we are born, our assigned sex define our role in society: how we will behave, what will be expected from us and the boundaries we will have to face in life. Due to our social-gendered role as women, nowadays, we struggle to define within what is our voice and is it what we want or what is impose on us. Applying motion tracking technologie with physical theatre and contemporary dance, we will question women’s role in the 21st century from both biology and society aspects.Ffion Campbell-Davies: Womb Paves Way‘Womb Paves Way’ is a biographical solo exploring the essence of what it is to become a woman. Looking at the life path, the cross roads of the past and future, recognising home is the womb, creating your own path, from your centre, clearing obstruction, birthing change and embarking where the physical meets the spiritual in rights of passage. Guided by primal forces of deity Ògún, Yoruban Afro-Brazilian, Afro-Cuban influence, through the marriage of contemporary and traditional forms. Taking fashion reference from African and Carribean women of the victorian and colonial era, and questioning what being a woman means today? What is ‘her-story’?Artivism Dance Theatre: Fear of Falling: The mind, like the flesh, is prone to malfunction.Azara Rowena Meghie: A fusion of poetry and breakdancing. The piece is about a night at a house party and being the only black person there I faced racism, homophobia and classism. So exploring those events on a canvas of live drums and sound from a sound engineer.Beth Rowley Beth Rowley is known for her voice and love of Blues and Gospel.
