“Making choices in life can often be difficult, causing us considerable stress,” says Founder and Chairperson of Women Can International Inc, Hayley Solich.
“Before I separated from my partner in 2007, I felt quite powerless. But after a horror year living in a one-bedroom granny flat with my husband and four children, whilst caring for my incapacitated in-laws, I learned that despite our circumstances we always have a choice,” continues Hayley
It was when her girlfriends supported Hayley, and helped her to gain the courage to make the break from her husband, that she suddenly experienced ‘the liberating power of choice’.
It was during this time of separation that Hayley founded Women Can International Inc (WCI), a positive Perth-based women’s association that seeks to support women to find and take the next step in their journey, encouraging them to make positive choices.
Two years on, Hayley is back with her husband and enjoying a much more respectful and nurturing relationship and sees that time of separation as a gift to her marriage.
Hayley and the team at Women Can want to pass on to others what they have learned through this and other life experiences.
Choices: The Power of Possibility Workshop for Women is being held on Saturday, 5 June 2010 at a private luxury holiday home in Quinns Rocks from 10:00am-2:00pm. The women of Perth are invited to participate in what is going to be ‘an exceptional workshop full of light bulb moments’.
The goal of the workshop is to place in the hands of women, effective decision-making tools so they can make positive choices in their lives.
The workshop will cover: Sowing and Reaping – How what you do today will be instrumental in the opportunities you harvest in the future; Cultivating the Garden of Opportunity – What are you planting in the garden of your life and how are you nurturing it; To Plant or Not to Plant – Getting solutions to life’s big questions; The Communal Garden – Co-creating solutions to community situations; and Fences, Gates & Borders – Creating, recognising, and responding to personal boundaries.
All women who would like the opportunity to learn how to use decision making tools effectively, gain an awareness of how their choices may be affecting their opportunities and also develop their community partnership skills are invited to participate in this practical and interactive workshop.
Highly subsidised by sponsors The Creaticians, this four-hour workshop includes a light lunch, tea and coffee.
