LOVE LETTER WORKSHOP
WOMEN'S WEEK SIXTEEN - JULY 8th 2020
Host: Saira Hussain, Love Letter Community Founder
Co-Host: Tarmim Khan, Emotional Wellness Coach & Entrepreneur
Time: 7 PM EST (Canada & USA).
Welcome back to our sacred community of womxn.
You are here today because you are aware.
Good morning womxn of influence.
Thank you for joining us last week as we recreated a space of celebration for ourselves with our altar. After witnessing our self-worth in our dreams, we have accepted that our journey too needs the fuel of compassion that we so easily give to our loved ones. Sisters! We have written fifteen love letters to ourselves while in our sacred space of reunion. We have shared stories about passion, resilience, courage, bravery and holistic wellness. We are so much more than what we can see in the mirror of opportunities.
How have you been feeling? Having learned the tools of becoming the best version of yourself, have you also been feeling depleted of the energy that was inside you when you first began this journey to betterment? I ask myself this many times and have been in and out of feeling magical; whole, content with my work-life balance. So why is this happening? Why are we feeling a low when we are dreaming of a divine state of being?
'I personally found myself overworked and burnt out whenever I came back from a bridal henna appointment. I thought it was my posture or my incredible and ignorant ability to go on working for five hours without food or water. When I came back recently from a bridal appointment in February, I met my husband and went up to our bedroom. He joined me as I lay there, still, silent and drained. For the first time in twelve years of applying henna, I realized my self-worth, power and ability of energy healing. I knew I had a power much larger than my past understandings, but I didn't perceive it to be true.' - Saira
We have so generously been aware of the needs of others without realizing that we too need to devote time to connect with love & compassion. As an empath and creature of creativity, wanderer of vast cultural landscapes, I have witnessed the powers of art through therapy. As an empath, my purpose is to encourage women to reconnect with their self-worth. Many of you have sent queries with how art can encourage us to embrace self-worth, which is why I have invited my woman of influence and co-host of the 16th love letter workshop is Tarmim Khan to discuss the powers of emotional intelligence.
What is emotional intelligence and how can we connect with it?
How do we create barriers while being an empath?
Tarmim has used the challenges from her past to rebuild her ambitions, self-worth and confidence in her present life. She now leads a community of students and staff at at an academic institution, but also offers her emotional intelligence coaching services through her social media platforms known as the 'Empathy Queen'. Her story will inspire you, and help you sort out your mess into messages as she says. I cannot wait to have Tarmim join us tomorrow for our celebration of sisterhood at our workshop this week. Sisters, be ready to dive into our subconscious state of being and celebrate your need to connect.
We are an ever growing community of womxn who are built from strength, compassion and have the capacity to adapt to change. As we enter the sixteenth week of quarantine, I would like to suggest that we all take a moment to appreciate how far we have come. Let us face the patriarchal routines with our feminine powers and decipher new challenges with solutions for our betterment. We must remember that there is a force inside us that has been waiting in our hearts with unconditional love and she has been patient. Let us hear her speak.
'DEAR INNER LIGHT..'
'Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to be aware of control and manage emotions and to handle relationships in a healthy and conducive manner, everything we do and everyone we come in contact with involves Emotional Intelligence and we can connect with it by accepting that the journey to personal development is limitless and opening our hearts and mind to learn the knowledge that would be fruitful to our lives!' - Tarmim
Join Tarmim and Saira on July 8th at 7 PM EST as we write a love letter to our inner light. Have an incredible week!
