Tearing Up the Good Girl Script: A Date For Women Of Substance

 Would you like to come on a date with me?

Our date will be dedicated to two questions: 

  • Where in my life am I trying to be good instead of aiming to be happy?
  • What shifts need to occur for me to be happy in that area of my life?

We are brought up to be good girls. Its a script that runs so deep that, as adults, we can keep playing it out unconsciously. Our date will be structured in an informal workshop style, including guided exercises for you to access your embodied wisdom, as well as shared conversation over exquisite food. I’ll share some information from contemporary gender theory and the yoga/tantra traditions that I have found invaluable in helping me to shift from being good to being happy. I’ve had quite a journey with this so far, and I look forward to more!

What time: 11.00am – 2.30pm 

On one of the following:

wednesday 17th Feb

thursday 18th March

Where: Dru Cafe, 131 Drummond Street, Euston, London NW1 2HL

How much: £50.00 for the event and for delicious, freshly cooked organic lunch, juices and afternoon tea ‘n cake/ energy bar

The group will be small so it will be a very rich experience. 

To book, email  stating which date you would like to come on.

When I saw the title to this event I was intrigued. I sure had the good girl script running and wondered what was the other side of it. The day was not only revealing but freeing and I cannot recommend it highly enough in such a safe environment and intuitive hands. I feel I have gained new and exciting insights as well as gaining the courage to keep re-writing MY script.

“Tearing up the good girl script” proved to be a compelling and insightful exploration of where we as women give up our power and our willingness to ask the question ‘what do I really want?’ and to stand up for the answer. Vena is an excellent guide for such an exploration because she has lived and breathed it in her own life. Everything she does is given exquisite care, and you will be in experienced and safe hands if you decide to take this next, exciting step on your own journey into being the beautiful, bold woman you are. My advice? jump right in…!

I experienced the workshop as a wonderfully safe, exploratory space. I greatly appreciated your skills as facilitator, ensuring safe boundaries while bringing focus and insight. I continue to reflect on the tensions between being ‘good’ and being happy in my own assumptions and behaviour, and I the workshop has given me perspective and confidence with which to challenge myself – on a pretty much daily basis!
