The FIGHT presents a WOMEN’S WEEKEND called STORYTELLERS led by Nicci Hamilton and the Storytellers Team.
This will be a gathering designed for those who want to explore the power of their personal story, engage in the mystery that is our life’s journey, while learning to embrace the suffering and sacrifices needed for growth and development. This is not a Bible Study or another Women’s Conference with hype religious language that motivates for a moment but doesn’t empower us in practical ways that can sustain in the normal life we inhabit everyday. This is about deep soul work, about remembering who we were meant to be, not simply who we were expected to be. We do not promise that it will be easy but we can promise that it will be worth it.
“It makes utter sense to stay healthy and strong, to be as nourishing to the body as possible. Yet I would have to agree, there is in many women a ‘hungry’ one inside. But rather than hungry to be a certain size, shape, or height, rather than hungry to fit the stereotype; women are hungry for basic regard from the culture surrounding them. The ‘hungry’ one inside is longing to be treated respectfully, to be accepted and in the very least, to be met without stereotyping.” – Clarissa Pinkola Estes from “Women Who Run With Wolves”
WHAT TO EXPECT + WHAT THE COST INCLUDES
Your $1500 registration fee includes food and lodging for the STORYTELLERS WEEKEND. You will be emailed a detailed description of your stay once you have registered. Your registration DOES NOT include flights. We will provide pickup to and from the airport to our location for the weekend. There will be a Private Facebook Group set up so you can coordinate with other women leading up to and following the event. Please bring extra money (cash) for excursions and outings during the weekend.
We have designed an immersive and formative experience that will help you identify your pain, make sense of your story, and define a path forward all in the midst of like-minded women who are radically pursuing the same thing from their own unique perspective. We will be using tools from several experienced sources all with the goal of helping you fully engage your story so that you can confidently and courageously show up to your daily life. Every woman will be required to bring a written 800 – 1200 word significant and marking story from their own lives that they will share in radical vulnerability before this group of women. You will receive more information and instructions for this assignment once you register. Throughout the rest of the day we will enjoy meals together, teaching, as well as local excursions that will provide some adventure for our time together.
