What does women supporting women even mean? This is a popular hashtag branded around social media and I thought it might be helpful to ponder this question. I have just facilitated a female empowerment workshop and witnessed once again the miracles that happen when we lean in and hold space for one another. The core intention of my ‘Bloom Girl’ philosophy is about creating a safe space for women to trust and step into their story.

Love and connection in this way is fundamental to living a life with joy and balance and a real sense of fulfillment. We never have to do it on our own.
