2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, 7:00-9:00 PM

Letter from the club leader, Julie Bermant:

© Sandra Costello 2017I have learned that fear is sometimes a guidepost, and that deep learning can come from turning towards the fear. I heard Angela Lussier speak, and realized that I, too, was afraid of public speaking. I embraced that fear by joining a Speaker Sisterhood club. I have been transformed by the experience. I used the support and structure to find a way to be myself in front of a group. The process of creating a speech has been a powerful vehicle for self insight; I have discovered that distilling my truth and searching for positive meaning is a way to understand motivation and come to a new perspective. The courage and determination that expresses itself in the Speaker Sisterhood meetings can feel magical. We learn about ourselves and about each other, we learn how to communicate our needs more effectively, and we value the opportunities to laugh together while taking risks.

The first meeting is free, so come check us out, and bring a friend!

I look forward to sharing the journey!
