So much is spoken these days about the trivial distractions, merciless duties and high-wire requirements of the modern woman. Barely a day passes without a new report published on employment discrimination, wage inequalities, the gender imbalance of care duties; and in every one, it’s bad news for the ladies. When we’re not being told we’ve got to work twice as hard for half as much, we’re getting our wrists slapped for that extra glass of wine, beating ourselves up for looking at social media, or compulsively striving toward an image of perfection for ourselves and our homes. All of that however, has to come after the upkeep and care of parents, partners, children and friends. It is understandable, with all of these pressures and obstacles, that the modern woman can end up uncertain of who she has become, unsure of what to do to make things better, and despairingly, precariously stuck.
At Awen we believe in reconnecting women with the source of their womanhood, finding the inner-healer - for the self as much as for others, and allowing the expression of emotions, feelings and sounds that can be stifled by society as unfeminine, or by ourselves as too exposing.
