The Women’s Centre has received funding from Gwaii Trust Healthy Humans to facilitate the “Womyn’s Lifecycle Series” project. This project will be presented as a series of facilitated information sessions and workshops. Each session will offer a creative and spiritual approach to health issues specific to women from the teen years through the menopausal years. The sessions will run January through June and will be held at the Women’s Centre in Queen Charlotte. All of the workshops will be taught by local facilitators and participants from all of the islands’ communities are invited to attend free of charge. Sessions will be limited to 10 participants and registration will be on a first-come first-serve basis.
The first sessions are a preteen series facilitated by Celina Laursen and Frances Bateham, discussing menstruation, body image and transitioning into womanhood (Jan. 11, 18 and 25). The second sessions, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Women and Myth, will be facilitated by Sharon Ferguson-Hood who will guide participants through a highly participatory process exploring myths and stories of the Wild Woman Archetype (eight sessions from Jan. 20 to March 10).
The Womyn’s Lifecycle Series workshops to look forward to in the upcoming months include Pregnancy and Childbirth; Sexuality, Body Image and Responsible Sex for Teens; Women and Sexuality through Sensual Art-Making; The Menopausal Years; Early Learning Canada Parenting Workshop; and a Women’s Herbal.
Registration for the first two sessions will begin Jan. 3. To register or for more information, contact Celina Laursen at the Women’s Centre across from the Credit Union, 559-4743.
