Time & Location
About the event
Jolijn hosts a workshop "The Safety of Belonging" at this 3-day festival for women. Find more info at www.ancientwomenfestival.org
The Safety of Belonging
‘Feeling safe’ is crucial for any person to grow and blossom. Feeling safe in one’s body, in relationships, in this world. Only in a state of relaxation can we open up to deeper and more authentic levels in our own being. The safety of belonging is a perfect breeding ground for inspired and creative human beings. Like this world needs them today ;-)
“And in meeting my ancestors i rooted a sense of belonging.
The softness in their eyes touched my core and opened up a new level of love, for myself in the first place.
I remembered this life is my gift and fully owning it is my tribute” (Jolijn)
At Ancient Women Festival i facilitate a systemic workshop in which we open up the collective field of our ancestors and especially the lineage of women. We all belong and together we belong even more. There is wisdom and support in all our lineages. And it is up to us, today, to honor that heritage and take it forward. Wherever you are on your journey, in this group workshop we’ll hold space for the collective field that is guiding your, my and our way.
“The only way a community can heal itself is to draw out the story coming through every individual. Only when we recognize the events of our lives, and of those who went before us, as leading us in a meaningful direction can we pick up the threads of our story in present time and weave it forward with common purpose” (Toko-Pa Turner - “Belonging - remembering ourselves home”)
Jolijn is fascinated by the human gift to ‘create’. As a textile designer and entrepreneur she has been involved in ‘socially responsible’ creations since 2002. And as long has she enjoyed systemic work (constellations) as a source of wisdom and inspiration. With shapeshift.today she has recently added this Soul-work to her professional activities with the intention to facilitate constellations for societal and collective themes.
“I am grateful, honored, happy and excited to host a workshop at Ancient Women Festival. Such a gift to create in and with a group of women! I couldn’t be more curious myself to learn what our collective knowing will reveil. Hope to meet you there!” (Jolijn)
