A couple of weeks ago, I joined Sophie Gray at her Way of Gray Lovestyle Workshop that was based around learning to love your insecurities. The workshop was hosted in the Way of Gray office space at the Mercer Building in downtown Edmonton. Sophie led the workshop and her close friend, Jade (of Treasure U), led a meditation along with some yoga to close the event.
Now, when you think self-love I’m sure you think of rainbows, smiles, and positive mantras. While all of this is great, sometimes you’ve got to break things down to the real and the raw. Get to the root of it. As a young teen, I was super into “Radical Self-Love” (by Gala Darling) where I journaled all of the self-love things. So admittedly, I was surprised that Sophie’s approach wasn’t as light and bright as I was expecting. But, it was deeply refreshing. Sophie allowed us girls attending a place to allow be real. To cry and just cry. Not be comforted. Not be embarassed. We actually had tissues ready; and some even said they couldn’t wait to cry it out. I even cried! Why? I think you’ll have to go to an event to see for yourself. I seriously can’t do these events justice in a blog post. But there is something magical about the power of looking within yourself [during a guided meditation] and facing your fears. Everything that is behind your insecurities. Theres obviously something to be said about a group of women coming together IN PERSON to put their best face forward for themselves. It just felt so damn good and I was *SO* happy to be a part of it.
So what’s next!? Sophie’s next workshop is a BRUNCH! Like, things couldn’t get any better. It is going to be THIS Saturday at 11 AM – 2 PM at Craft Beer Market downtown. I was going to be attending but unfortunatly can no longer make this one. I’m pretty sure there are still some tickets available on sale HERE for one more day so act fast if you’re into the idea of this! But, how could you not be!? Literally all kinds of women were at the last event and it was so beautiful!
