Why we created #enlightenedAF.
Now more than ever we need communities of strong, female leaders to nurture and influence change in the world. #enlightenedAF is a 12-month trek up the side of a mountain, crammed into two overwhelmingly powerful days.
““The main thing I took away from this event was all the ways I contributed to the status quo. It empowered me to go out into the community and make a change.”
"This has transformed the way I hold my personal power. I can say without hesitation that a lot of my confidence, courage and focus were cultivated in these sessions. The community, honesty, and wise and creative approach were inspiring and uplifting!
