Our line up of Guest Speakers and Agenda for our We Emerge ~ Every Woman Empowered's Conference 2018
JACQUELINE SHORT, Educator
Guest Speaker Topic: My Story Is My Gift
I am a Cree woman from Saddle Lake Cree Nation where my roots began. I was born in the local town of—St. Paul AB—to a family of twelve fortunately escaping the era of residential schools due to the timing of my arrival. My upbringing laid the foundation for my future stringing me on a journey that had many viewing me in wonderment and pity, until I transformed my thinking and thus my direction. I will speak about love, about pain, about healing, my spiritual awakenings, and about my own pursuit of happiness. I offer my story as a gift to all who listen. What you do with this gift is yours, and only yours. Re-gifting allows the spirit of my story to carry forth towards others who are starving, particularly those whose reflections portray otherwise.

Workshop: Happiness Is An Inside Job
Happiness is an Inside Job
Let’s talk about happiness – what it is and what it is not.

MELISSA PHILLIPOFF, The Beautiful Soul Life Coaching
Workshop: Your Life, Your Story. Reasons to Change the Next Chapter
We all have a story to tell and isn’t set in stone, it’s made up of chapters of love, pain, conflict and success. You determine the outcome of your story by the choices that you make on a regular basis.
A life story doesn’t need to be a biography or memoir that is written at the end of your life. It can be written as you live it and you can determine what the end will be. We all make decisions that shape us both consciously and unconsciously that have an impact on how we will move going forward. We will go through the process on changing your story to be one of love and abundance.

Keynote Speaker: Discovering the Woman I Knew I Was — A Journey Into Transition
«I am transgender. I was born in a male body, a shell that I never identified with. At first I didn't know, and I didn't know that I didn't know. Then it scared me, and in the end I embraced it. I am of those who had to work hard, and go through hell and back, in order to be who I am. And it was worth it.
I am always telling the story of my life as I lived it. From trying to understand who I was — and how I felt! — to accepting who I was, an immense crossroads in my life, with everything at stake — and finally to how and who I became. I am speaking of feelings, of learning and self discovery. I am sharing my journey, but from a different perspective. I am cutting through the outer shell and let you look at what's inside, at the feelings and emotions and thoughts and insecurities. Being vulnerable, I aim to teach and help others become.»

Workshop: Tuning Into Your Woman's Intuition
As women, we are taught at an early age to ignore our intuition, and trust in the wisdom of others instead. We’re also likely to be criticized for being too sensitive, too emotional, too dramatic, and too illogical when we’re operating off of our intuition. This constant barrage of criticism can cloud our judgment and make us doubt ourselves, and our instincts.
We will learned to trust our inner voice, learning how to integrate our intuition with our logical reasoning — heart and brain working in synchronicity.

Lunch, coffee breaks with snacks, art supplies, workshop materials, all workshops and self help book swap!!!
