The Willow tree is known for the ability to regenerate itself from almost total destruction. Sinking its roots deeply near a water source, the strength and feminine beauty of the Willow tree is symbolic of the strength and beauty of all women.

A woman's intuitive ability to reach for a source of regeneration - of connection - in a today's world, where we are constantly redefining ourselves or when we have experienced a devastating event, mirrors that of the Willow.

The Willow Connection is the opportunity to meet, share strengths and ideas, mentor and be mentored by the extraordinary women who attend these events.




  • Provide an opportunity for women to connect in an atmosphere of relaxation and fun!
  • Present a program which will combine elements of stress management, communication skills, teamwork, self-esteem and the use of humor to cope with life’s challenges.
  • Introduce the Willow Connection as a continuing and growing multi-faceted program designed to support, encourage and mentor women ages 16 and over.
  • Offer women the opportunity to soar by encouraging them to challenge their perceived limits of possibility
  • Provide the opportunity to try things they might never have tried due to reasons such as: No time!, always doing for others, negative self-talk and low self-esteem.
  • Empower and inspire women to face their fears, lose negative self-talk, seek joy and use a sense of humor to put things into perspective.
  • Remind women of the importance of honoring themselves


 

HERE'S TO THE LADIES WHO LAUGH....AND PLAY!
Once again, it's time to give yourself permission to play and share some fun with your Willow Sisters!

On Saturday, December 11th we'll be offering an opportunity to take a break from hectic Holiday Madness and regroup, recharge and rejuvenate ourselves so that we can jump right back into the rat race!

At "GET PAMPERED AND THEN SCAMPER" we will have massages, pedicures, manicures and who knows what other pampering stuff we can come up with PLUS a wonderful breakfast buffet....and of course, our traditional champagne toast to the Ladies who Laugh! After you've been pampered...you can scamper right out to the malls, nice and refreshed.

Also, anyone who has a product which might be of interest to Holiday shoppers is invited to come, display and sell. What a wonderful way to support each other in business while relaxing and having some fun! If you are an artist or if you sell jewelry, cosmetics....anything that you think might be appropriate for this event, please let me know and we'll see if we can put together a nice little shopping opportunity. Let me know your interest in this so I'll know how to plan, OK? Also, we thought it might be fun to have a little craft activity going on as well....if anyone has a great idea for something Holidayish, let me know. Please RSVP with your interest as soon as you can so we'll know whether to pursue this. We have to have at least 30 people, or we can't pull this off...so round up your girlfriends!

MENU:Fresh Fruit, Assorted Pastries, Muffins & Bagels, Scrambled Eggs with Cheddar Cheese and Chives, Breakfast Potatoes, Smoked Bacon, Coffee, Orange Juice and Assorted Teas. Yum.
Cost:$30 per person for one or $25 per person for groups of 2 or more. Imagine having a massage, manicure, pedicure, food and fun for such a low price!
