Some women have said that you get more from the weekend staffing than doing the workshop. I certainly got much more than I expected. It allowed me to experience myself in so many ways, and much deeper than I have ever imagined I could go.”
The Woman Within Weekend that each one of us attended would not have been possible if sufficient women had not volunteered their time and energy to organise and staff the training. Participant to staff ratio on the weekend is 1 to 1 to create a safe, nurturing space for the healing process to happen.
Many women have found the staffing experience to be just as powerful and in some ways more powerful than their initial weekend. Staffing is a wonderful opportunity to continue your personal journey, to hold space for other women, and to be supported in return.
There is an investment of R1000 to cover food and accommodation.
Each member of the staff has walked the same Woman Within path by experiencing the Weekend herself and they choose to return the gift they received by offering their support to other women attending.

The weekend brought great gifts and stayed with me for many months after. Sometimes, seeing the women I share "life" with standing in the queue at Woollies or walking in the forest, and in that quiet moment sharing a glance of recognition, respect and feeling of I know what it means to walk silently beside another woman, the pain and joy of this life and the gift of being a woman.”
