The Women's Circle is a bimonthly gathering begun and ran by Netta Levran in Tel Aviv, Israel. The events have been powerful for both participants and lecturers, fostering a commitment to sharing, personal transformation,  wellness and empowerment. After attending the first in Cape Town, held in February this year, ACI co-founder Shiba Melissa Mazaza decided to carry the mantle facilitating  a mini-weekend version in Cape Town catered for women of African descent.

The event will involve a day of women-led workshops, featuring a variety of themes that promise to be fun, interesting, and eye-opening.

WHAT: 1.5 days of women-led workshops and activities.

WHO: 10-20 women, plus our venerable workshop leaders, who have volunteered their time and talents to our first Cape Town Women's Circle! Our experts are:

  • Leadership Styles: Insights,led by Dr Shadrick Mazaza (Lifecycles Personal Development) and Lee Ann Freemantle (Lee Freemantle & Associates)
  • Improv theatre, led by Tandi Buchan (Improguise) and Megan Furniss (Improvision)
  • Voice acting & public speaking, led by Laura Russell (Russell & Fisher Voice Therapy)
  • Dance therapy, led by Faine Bisset (Dance Therapy)
  • Wine tasting, led by Su Birch (Tastetrip)
  • Thai message, led by Lisa Martin (Thai Massage School)

Also our good friend (and unofficial amateur chef) Stephanie Pretorius will be coordinating food jamming (or other group mealtime vibes).
