Guiding Girls Globally: Timeless Teachings in Support of Girls Coming of Age

Widening Our Embrace: Making Powerful, Safer Spaces for Questioning and Transgender Youth in Our So-Called Girls Groups.

Wednesday, December 15th, 2021.

9-10:15 am MST.

https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/

For educators, mentors, councilors, counselors, therapists, parents, caregivers, clergy, community leaders, Elders, and all allies of girls.

All People who directly work with girls and/or the feminine are welcome.

Sliding scale.

Spanish and Portuguese.

In this short introduction to creating and maintaining more gender-inclusive Girls Groups, Angus Baguinho will:

           * Review foundational understandings of sex, gender, and sexuality

            * Think critically about our own gender identities

            * Continue the life-long work of examining and transforming our biases

            * Recognize the cost of leaving transgender issues unaddressed

Learn how to expand our language and activities in ways that affirm both cis and trans girls, as well as the non-binary and trans-masculine youth who are brought into our care.

This workshop is particularly designed for facilitators of girls groups. Groups for girls are incredibly empowering for many youth who attend. However, if the definition of “girl” is too narrowly defined, transgender girls and youth who only sometimes or partly identify as girls, will likely struggle with self-esteem, sense of belonging, issues of identity, and most importantly their basic need for safety and understanding.

Some youth, who in no way relate to the term girl, may participate in girls groups because they have been misgendered by others as girls, because at one point they understood themselves as girls, or because a girls group is the only place available for them to pursue community, skills, and other opportunities. For these youth, it is important that we not only expand the definition of girl, but that we also make space within our girls groups for other genders who have also been marginalized by patriarchal and sexist ideologies and systems.

In this one hour 15 minute event, we welcome  you to this deeply nuanced and life-saving teaching on how to extend our solidarity beyond girlhood to include the authentic identities and expressions of the youth that come to us in need of mentorship, guidance, and community.

Practical teachings and tools will be shared. Questions and dialogue included.

Bring your questions and your open hearts.

Guiding Girls Globally: Timeless Teachings in Support of Girls Coming of Age

From Daughter to Woman, Guiding Girls Safely Through Their Teens with Kim McCabe from Rites for Girls

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021.

9-11:00 am MST.

https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/

For educators, mentors, councilors, counselors, therapists, parents, caregivers, clergy, community leaders, Elders, and all allies of girls.

All People who directly work with girls and/or the feminine are welcome.

Sliding scale.

Spanish, Portuguese and French.

A teenage girl longs for affirmation that she is on the right path towards womanhood; she often dons the clothes, make-up and mannerisms of a woman, mistakenly believing that this turns her into one.  Appearance is such a small part of what it means to be a woman, but who teaches our daughters this?  Well, that’s we adults can help.  We can spend time with our girls, in the company of other women, showing them the way.  We find simple rituals to acknowledge as they cross certain thresholds, letting them know that we see they are on their way towards becoming women.

Kim McCabe, Founder of Rites for Girls will be discussing what girls have taught her about what they need from us adults.

* Practical tools for mentoring preteen and teen girls

* How to prepare girls for a puberty rite ceremony and celebration

This two hour Educational Event is for anyone who is interested in steering our children safely into adulthood - mothers, grandmothers, aunties, and anyone who works with pre-teen and teenage girls in a personal or professional way. We have the good luck to play a part in setting them on their path into their future.

The future needs us all!

Practical teachings and tools will be shared. Questions and dialogue included.

Wednesday, May 19th.

Sliding scale.

Spanish, Portuguese and French.

Mireya will be sharing with us the way in which she connected and developed her "altar/sacred space creation" practice, through the influence of her own Mexican heritage, the expressive arts and guidance received in ceremonial practices. We will explore with this practice "the altar of life" as a place to anchor and inhabit more fully our inner lives, all our relations and life as a whole. Including the mystery that so many times is so much larger than us to even comprehend. As we involve ourselves or guide others into the creation of beauty through symbol, imagination, creative expression, ritual and connection to place/body/earth, we develop a deeper intimacy with our inner being, soul and all that surrounds us.

If you can bring to our gathering art materials, and/or craft materials you might have at around, feel free...this can be as small or rich as you feel so called and/or life permits.  It can be as simple as a crayon or marker and a piece of paper.

Bring your questions and your open hearts.

Practical teachings and tools will be shared. Questions and dialogue included.
