Rooting Your Dreams Workshop

We’ve been so inspired by the April book club selection, The Awakened Woman by Dr. Tererai Trent!

Gal’s Guide is hosting a workshop to put into action the lessons Dr. Tererai lays out in the book. We are going to talk about our goals & dreams, write them down, and bury them in the soil to take root.

We are going to provide soil, pots, and optional seeds to add to your dreams. You will be able to replant your dreams in your own yard or keep them in the pot. The goal is to have a place where you “tend” to your dreams and are reminded of their growth.

This empowering practice is welcome to all. We do ask you to register as we want to make sure you have space and supplies for all.

The Awakened Woman

by Dr. Terari Trent

Winner of the 2017 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work–Instructional Through one incredible woman’s journey from a child bride in a small Zimbabwe village to one of the world’s most recognizable voices in women’s empowerment and education, this manifesto inspires women to pursue their sacred dreams through nine essential lessons brought forth from ancient African wisdom. Before Tererai Trent landed on Oprah’s stage as her “favorite guest of all time,” she was a woman with a forgotten dream. As a young girl in a cattle-herding village in Zimbabwe, she dreamed of receiving an education but instead was married young and by eighteen, without a high school graduation, she was already a mother of three. Tererai encountered a visiting American woman who assured her that anything was possible, reawakening her sacred dream. Tererai planted her dreams deep in the earth and prayed they would grow. They did, and now not only has she earned her PhD but she has also built schools for girls in Zimbabwe.

This was a wonderful event. I had a lovely time chatting with everyone who attended. I enjoy getting to take a moment to reflect on what I want in life and plant the intention. I can’t wait for my spinach to sprout. Super fun time. would recommend.
