We are a community of women in Colorado that is part of Woman Within International. We believe that each woman has an inner wise woman to guide her, and sometimes it is simply a matter of listening to what she has to say. We hope you will tap into the support, training and tools you need to empower yourself as a woman; to deepen your inner wisdom, and get to know which parts of you need more recognition and understanding. Woman Within offers a brilliantly simple yet completely different way to explore how your life might be different. Although some women in Colorado have been a part of Woman Within for over 20 years, we are a relatively new region. We hope to offer more trainings and programs in the Colorado area as women hear about us. Here is what we offer in Colorado at this time for women 18 and older:
- Woman Within Open Circles – These circles allow women the space to support and be supported in whatever is going on for them whether that is anger, joy, sadness, shame or fear. Open Circles are led by an experienced woman, and offer all women the chance to be heard, or not, depending on what she chooses. Open Circles are come-as-you-can and no not require previous training or pre-requisites. If you are curious about the program, please consider joining us for an open circle.
- Woman Within Committed Circles – These Circles are for women who have committed to meeting regularly with the same women on a regular basis (the schedule and frequency is determined by the circle itself. Most circles meet every other week 2-3 hours and often require women to have attended open circles, Circle Training and/or the Woman Within Weekend.
- Circle Training – A multi-day program offered a few times each year either in the Denver area or online to teach self-awareness and skills to support with clarity and empathy. This workshop is recommended before joining a circle because it offers tools for women to sit in and co-create strong and safe circles.
- Woman Within Weekend – The signature program which offers a series of experiential activities, guided meditations and focused individual and group exercises. These weekends are temporarily on hold due to the pandemic, but we hope to host another weekend in Colorado in Spring 2021. Weekends are also held in other locations in the United States and even internationally. You can find out more by visiting Woman Within International’s global calendar page.
Our hope is that we can support you in knowing yourself on a deeper level and in being the best you can be. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions, support, and more information.
What is Woman Within?
We’re women offering programs to help other women know and embrace all parts of themselves. Some join us through a Woman Within Circle®; others through a Woman Within Weekend®. All are welcome. Our nonprofit communities encourage women to support each other in fully living the lives they want.
Our mission is simple: to help women throughout the world to empower themselves. We help women see which parts of themselves need further acknowledgement and integration so that they can live their lives to the fullest. For centuries, women have gathered together to see, hear and support each other. Through these experiences, we can be held when we feel alone, challenged when we’re stuck and loved when we believe that we aren’t worthy.
In 1987, our founder, Char Tosi, and six other women sat around a kitchen table asking, “ What do women need most?” The result: a program they called Woman Within. Its mission: to learn how to be a woman and to celebrate its gentle power. Soon after, the first Woman Within Weekend was held in Kenosha, Wisconsin – and since then, the program has reached thousands of women around the world. In 1999, Woman Within was established as a not-for-profit organization with an international board, an Executive Administrator, Regional boards and local community councils. Since then, many women have contributed to Woman Within’s development, weaving together their ideas to build on the original Weekend’s program design. Every Woman Within Weekend brings new insights that help us continually hone it and assure its optimal delivery.
Woman Within programs are not based on any religion nor do we promote any one belief over another. The sessions in the Woman Within Weekend and our other workshops blend a number of experiences drawn from many cultures and practices from around the world. We invite you to honor your own beliefs and spirituality. At all times, you choose whether you want to participate in any activity.
