We were the original hosts of the Cornish Premiere of EMBRACE which is a social impact documentary that explores the issue of body image.
As you are aware, I am an advocate for making people feel good about themselves and to focus on being well and being fabulous to boost confidence, mental health and wellness. Which is why I want you see this film and feel liberated from the pressures of being perfect.
I have a network of great influencers in my life, women who make a difference on so many levels and I believe we need to surround ourselves with greatness and simply support each other. We only shine when we make each other shine. Helen x
Think all things female. It is our essence. It is what makes us women. We have decided to ensphere our HER coaching with EMBRACE Body Image Movement and create a group muse to ponder, discuss and enjoy being females in a mans world. (We all know the real truth though ladies!)
Yes it is networking.
No it is not for business women only.
Yes it can be any age.
No boys (not for now anyway)
Just show up and be present.
Yes it is to give encouragement and embrace our uniqueness and is simply a safe place for modern women to share, laugh, love and be ourselves with no pressures.
Yes we will have talks around health and wellness as that is what we do. However, the topics will sit with life issues around stress, sweat, menopause, pelvic floors, resilience, grief, happiness, being comfortable in our skin, eating for health, stress (did I say stress already?) and general subjects that you may find in Women and Home Magazine with a hint of Cosmo.
When we launched The Embrace film we seriously did not expect such an out pouring of amazing women struggling with their body image. We have always been ambassadors for body positivity and we want to help and work with others to feel fabulous and unlock their potential to be even more amazing.
Self care is not indulgence. It is self respect.
Footnote: Why the name?
A persons's muliebrity is her femininity or womanliness. An idolising kindergartener might admire her dress-wearing, curly-haired teacher's muliebrity. womanly qualities; womanliness.
The noun muliebrity is quite uncommon, and today it's almost always used in a literary context. A poet might describe a beautiful woman's muliebrity, for example. The word comes from the Late Latin word muliebritas, "state of womanhood," which is rooted in one of the Latin words for "woman," mulier.
As a verb, to muse is to consider something thoughtfully. As a noun, it means a person — especially a woman — who is a source of artistic inspiration.
In mythology, the Muses were nine goddesses who symbolised the arts and sciences.
