B.A.B.E. 6.0

If you don't know yet, B.A.B.E. events are social gatherings where women entrepreneurs can get together for a fun night out to socialize, network and get to know one another! Unlike similar events, this is more casual and chill, consider it a girl's night out with a bunch of bad ass boss babes!

So bring your smiles, your business cards, your choice of drinks* and let's have a fun night!
*Because this is hosted in a 'private residence' setting, it will be BYOB (sure saves us all that bar bill if we were to have this at a bar or restaurant lol)

As many of you know, tickets go fast so make sure you get your tickets soon!

Hope you can all join me!

Feel In Control Around Food Workshop

DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH EMOTIONAL EATING?

Tired of eating really fast, standing up? Can’t keep snacks in the house? Think you have a willpower problem?

Join me and learn how to manage emotional and stress eating with curiosity, intuition, and self-care. So you can feel in control around food, and end the guilt and shame.

You’ll learn about:

  • The biological and emotional causes of over-eating

  • Why emotional eating has been your solution, not your problem

  • Why diets don’t work and what to do instead

  • How to keep any food in the house (yes, even chips and ice cream)

You’ll walk away with:

  • Evidence-based facts on why diets don’t work

  • Practical tips on how to have a more loving, joyful relationship with food

  • Insights on your biological and emotional triggers

  • A deeper understanding of how to tap into your intuition

This is for you if:

  • You’ve tried #allthethings—paleo, keto, intermittent fasting, celery juice, Whole30, WW—but still feel stuck and frustrated

  • You say things like “I have no willpower”

  • You’re ashamed of your late-night binges (...and the crumbs in your bed)

  • You want to learn how to eat without guilt and shame

What do you need to bring? Nothing! Just yourself.

Please join NEDIC and Sonya Renee Taylor for an exploration of the debilitating shame that people around the world live with as a result of the psychological attacks that our social and media machines wage against us, leading to eating disorders, addictions, stigma, racism, homophobia, ableism, sizeism, ageism, transphobia, mass self-hatred, and senseless violence as a result of body hatred.

Sonya's revolutionary movement, The Body is Not an Apology, seeks to engage people in the individual work that fosters self-love — and, just as importantly, seeks to dismantle the structural and systemic emotional, psychological, and physical violence that plays out against “different” bodies all over the planet.

Let's heal our shame, love our bodies, value ourselves, and step into our power!

Healed Hearts Empowered Spirits

2nd Annual Healed Hearts Empowered Spirits will be unlike any women's event in Mississauga! We're coming back together to uplift and recognize women of all backgrounds to honor and celebrate being resilient. Last year we cheered, laughed, and cried with one another as we shared our voices and stories in a safe and supportive space.

Come with your best friend, your mother, sister, or come alone as there will be plenty of opportunities to make new friends! You'll leave with a rejuvenated spirit and a smile on your face. 

Feel free to bring your business cards, but the real connecting will happen through hugs, the power of words, great energy.
