The empowHER Leadership Retreat 2023 is April 29, 2023! Registration is CLOSED for 2023. See you on April 29!
Jessica wants to help students develop coping and thriving strategies related to school success, feeling isolated, being overwhelmed, and most importantly, how to manage stress and create positive affirmations and self-talk. All of these, she knows, help students feel they are valued, loved, and truly well.
Start the day with a movement and breath focused practice that invites every participant into deeper awareness of what it means to wake up to one’s own power! Learn the utility of yoga as a daily practice and become more aware of the roots and history of this ancient practice.
It turns out there is no secret to success, but there is a clear recipe. In this signature program, Jessica Lundy helps audiences to establish clear goals, overcome limiting forces, and develop the type of mindset needed to win every day.
Have you ever been in a situation where you wish you could speak up, but in the moment you have no idea what to say or how to jump in? In this session, participants will be introduced to the idea of Bystander Intervention which helps teach skills for keeping ourselves and our peers safe. Participants will reflect on what they see in popular media and situations where Bystander Intervention could be helpful. Through interactive activities and discussion, participants will leave this workshop feeling empowered to step up when they witness harmful behavior and comments in their community.
We will be discussing the pros and cons of social media so students can be more informed while using the internet. We would like participants to be able to think about their social media use and the feelings that they have while using social media and create solutions to make social media something that promotes their mental health and happiness.
This self-defense workshop serves as an introduction to verbal and physical skills that will help girls realize their personal power. Girls will learn physical techniques standing up and also effective movements on the ground. This will be accompanied by drills to help develop strong verbal skills.
