Roam Your Soul – Expanding Women’s Empowerment

January 2nd, 2012 Posted by . Published under Website Profiles. No Comments.

 It’s been great to expand our readership over the past few months of riding.  We always expected this to happen, but it’s been a vital part of how we keep energized about the project.  One of the best relationships we’ve formed along these lines is with Christine Perigen.  She’s founded Roam Your Soul, an Online Adventure Workshop for Women.

It’s a place for women who “want to explore their daily lives with new eyes, experience adventure and roam their inner soul of who they are.  The workshop will help [women] on an internal adventure that results in soul growth and learning about [oneself] through daily explorations, weekly reflections, and the relationships [they] build.”

We want to share this great project with you all because we’re working with Christine to form a challenge for Week 3 based on Against The Grind.  Since we have similar goals – to inspire women to take more risks and push themselves to face challenges head on – this was a great match up for us.  And we think it’s a great match up for you too!  (I know we have a lot of male readers, and sorry that you can’t join, but you probably have women in your lives who might be interested in the Roam Your Soul workshop.)

Sign up here– $20 for the 4-week workshop:

If you’d like to use a New Year’s Resolution to be a bit better at facing challenges in 2012!  (You’ll get to see some videos we haven’t released yet too!) While we’re working with Christine in Week 3 in January, the registration for January is closed, but your chance to participate in February is still here! The workshop will run from Feb 17 – March 18 and we’ll be Week 3 again!

Overall, we mostly just like sharing stories, in any form, of women doing great things to break down the barriers and challenges we face each day!

SO, WHY ONLY WOMEN?

Women, over centuries, have been influential in positive and philanthropic change in our societies. We are the communicators, the peacekeepers, the adventurers, and the renegades. We are naturally drawn to social circles. We are talkative, inquisitive and analytical. We are amazingly good at multi-tasking. Women, in today’s world, have less and less opportunities to connect to other women. Given the opportunity, we can be a great support for one another and we desire and need the kind of friendship that is deep, meaningful, and full of purpose. This workshop is a special space for these friendships to be cultivated.

As women, our appearances are often dictated by social influence and fashion magazines. Our appearances and society’s perception of us may have changed over time but we, as women, all fundamentally maintain our same appreciation for beauty (as true beauty is), compassion, and making our world a loving and awesome place for us all to live. Enjoy the video below – it depicts women from different perspectives that have been expressed in art over time.
