About

Young Leader Giedre held an series of workshops that merged Mindfulness and dance with female empowerment for a truly unique 12 weeks. This was done as an attempt to combat unlrealistic body images imprinted upon women by media and the associated mental health issues that can affect women as a result.

Impact

11 women took part in the sessions looking at mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders and addictions through the lenses of four women archetypes (maiden/virgin, mother, wild woman, wise woman) mixed together with performing arts. They participants were also able to share their experiences during a round table discussion and take part in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Future Developments

Divaine Feminine was a pilot course for Giedre’s social enterprise that will use dance and discussion to give women the chance to heal their self esteem, so there will be more just like it in the future!
