Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Many of us go through life on autopilot—flying blindly into society’s plans for us... making lists and checking boxes, following the “shoulds” and not the “what ifs.” For some, it’s about the grades, the job, the spouse, the white picket fence and the six-figure income—Success with a capital ‘S.’ For others, it’s about defying convention and sticking it to the man. And then there are those who, after following a particular path, seek to rewrite their futures. No matter where we are on the spectrum, we all have our stories— stories that have propelled us forward or held us back; stories that have defined our realities or helped us break free. For this 3rd edition of HerStories, we will be examining the question: are you living your life? Or is your life living you? We’ll be sharing the stories of struggle on our journeys, how we overcame them and what it takes to create the great, conscious and intentional realities of our lives.

Giovanni Marciso (Founder of Archangel) and Dr. Stephanie Estima (Doctor of Chiropractic, Neuroscience Expert, Owner of The Health Loft) will be sharing stories of misaligned love, and how they came to find each other and create the conscious and loving relationship they have today.

Maya Chivi (Author, Mental Health and Children's Rights Advocate, TEDx Speaker) will open up about how making one decision while suffering from depression as a teenager shaped the standard for how she would live out the rest of her life.

Catie Fenn (Soul Therapist, Founder of Goddess Life, Lawyer) will speak about how the carefully curated life she worked so hard to achieve blew up in her face and how she rebuilt her life into one that now feels magical, expansive and deeply fulfilling.

Samra Zafar (Alumni Governor of U of T, Founder of Brave Beginnings, TEDx speaker) will share her experience of how she escaped a 10-year abusive marriage and became the author, scholar, speaker and champion for domestic abuse survivors all over the world.

HerStories (www.herstoriesspeak.com) is a speaker series and story-sharing platform that showcases personal stories to foster empowerment, connection and community. It’s about sharing stories that make us feel more connected and less alone-- stories we’re afraid to tell; stories we feel might reject us but, really, only bring us closer together.

We believe that vulnerability and expression are keys to this transformative experience. So, our event will be split into 2 parts: our guest speaker line-up and then an open forum where audience members will be given the opportunity to step up onto the stage, use their voices and share their stories.
