Bagels & Butterflies: Unlock Your Potential - Part 1


Take a deep breath and connect with where you are right now. Notice what is, where you are, who you are. What possibilities exist in this place, in you? Breathe in this space and explore through thoughtful discussion and writing.

Breathe, believe, begin, and become via a four week series, Bagels & Butterflies. This four-week series of conversations and writing exercises is open to women of all ages, including multi-faith family members. Join us for the first part on Sunday, January 16.

Practice grounding yourself and unlock your potential with Life Coach Jobina Bardai and Expressive Writing Instructor Taslim Jaffer. While you're at it, learn a little about bagels and try some recipes along the way! Because becoming can be delicious!

Each workshop will be a live, interactive session offered via Zoom. They will be 1.5 hours in length and will commence at 9:30am PT | 10:30am MT | 12:30pm ET. The maximum capacity is 300 participants.

Registration is required. By registering for the series, you are automatically included in all four sessions. In order to ensure confidentiality, sessions will not be recorded. All participants will need to attend the live sessions with their cameras on.
