#METOO HEALING WEEKEND
April 10-11 2021
Alaya Retreat Centre at Cal Pau Cruset,
Torrelles de Foix, Barcelona, Catalunya
One out of 6 to 10 women (statistics vary a lot per country) will be confronted with sexual harassment or sexual abuse at some point in their life.
On October 15, 2017, American actress Alyssa Milano posted on Twitter, "If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote 'Me too' as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem".
The movement has taken of the last 2 years in many countries among the globe and the magnitude of the problem has never been clearer.
We as women are becoming more and more aware that we have a lot of healing to do and that there are more women than we thought that have faced and have struggled with the same issues. The collective pain we as women feel, has to be addressed socially and politically and to do that we have to heal ourselves and each other first. Nobody will do that for us.
What does this movement mean for us? How do we cope with sexual harassment? How do we deal with harassment at work? And how can we support each other? We will share our ideas and stories and explore how can we heal from these experiences. This two day workshop will explore the theme and we will embark on a collective journey to explore the different ways of dealing with it and what that can look and feel like.
