Come to one of our upcoming open houses for girls and mothers or female caregivers or our evening talk for parents. Come to both for the full experience!
Metamorphosis ~ An Evening Talk with GGP founder Sarai Shapiro
Monday September 11, 7-9pm | Private Home in Berkeley
Learn how we can draw from the wisdom of our ancestors and respond to the time we are living in to create a relevant cultural “basket” strong enough to hold the inner and outer life of your daughter. Sarai will give an overview of developmental changes and share tools including creating safety in relationships, nature connection, and consciously held rites-of-passage. This evening talk is designed for adults and is for parents or care-givers of girls of all ages!
