Dear Creative Asian Women,
Let’s face it, life has felt like an emotional roller coaster as of late, right?!
The grief, anger, fear, shame, worry, numbness and more stemming from the anti-Asian hate right now (on top of everything else going on) can be overwhelming, especially for sensitive creatives. I admit, this year alone there have been a few times I could’ve easily just hid under the covers all day ( …um, I have taken lots of naps)!
Given that many of us grew up culturally in families that don’t talk about feelings, these strong or difficult emotions can seem messy or taboo. And yet, we need to give space for all that we’re experiencing so that we can take better care of ourselves and each other (we can’t move through these tough times on our own!).
Join me and your fellow creative Asians for a 90-min no-cost workshop Embracing our Emotions.
You’ll have full permission to explore and express whatever you’re feeling to whatever extent you’re comfortable through guided self-reflection, creative practices and small group sharing in a supportive and courageous container. Having a safe enough place where the faces look like yours and the stories deeply resonate can be a balm for your soul.
I look forward to gathering with you in virtual community! Please sign-up below to receive the log-in deets.
Embracing our Emotions:
Community, Connection and Care for Creative Asian Women
In this no-cost, interactive 90-min. workshop you’ll:
- Have space to be with the full range of emotions that may be bubbling up right now (the grief, anger, fear, overwhelm, numbness… and, yes, even the joy and gratitude all have permission to co-exist!)
- Experience simple yet powerful practices to help you feel more inspired and resourced
- Connect with, be witnessed by, and learn from fellow creative Asian women (no more isolation or feeling like you don’t belong)
- Feel more empowered to share what’s on your heart and mind or to speak up and go against our “keep our heads down” conditioning
- Find a place of refuge during these turbulent times
- And more!
No art experience necessary. Please have your favorite supplies handy.
Please note that I’ll also share a bit about Color Outside the Lines, my upcoming 8-month group coaching program for creative Asian women wanting to live, work, and lead from their most authentic, fully-expressed selves.
Of course I do hope you’re able to join us live so you can connect with your fellow Asian creative women and receive real-time support and inspiration, but in case you can’t make it, a video replay will be available for a limited time (but may be missing some small group exercises).
