Who Am I

As women we spend a great deal of time painting a portrait of ourselves that we believe others want to see. We also spend a lot of time caring for the needs of others, forgetting that isn’t what defines who we are. It is really important for all of us to take some time to really understand who we are as people. What we stand for, what makes us truly happy or angry. This is not a once in a lifetime thing to do. All of us need to remember exactly who we are, and re-visit that now and again.

This series is eight weeks long and focuses on different steps to discover the inner workings of who we are as individuals. Obviously it cannot be complete, no one can tell anyone else how to go through this process completely. These are merely suggestions to get started. There will be two facilitators and the group will be small. No one has to share any personal information should they choose not to, and all information is kept confidential.

Special thanks go to our sponsoring agencies. Through the support of the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Committee help is available for some transportation costs, Lanark County Interval House supports this group through the provision of a facilitator.We ask that all participants are double vaccinated. The next series begins Tuesday, Feb 1 from 1-3 pm. Please contact 613-434-4435 or info@planblanark.ca for more information or to register.
