In a previous post, I wrote about my experience at the BraveHeart Women RISE event. I was so motivated upon my return home that throughout the holidays my mind would not rest as I thought about how I would introduce the BraveHeart Women concept back home. I shared my experience with my sisters-in-law and a couple of other ladies from work. I could see that Zimbabwean women were receptive and hungry for a deeper connection with other women.
This is what I posted on a page I manage on Facebook on the 19th December 2014:
Last November I attended a gathering of women from Africa, USA, Australia, Europe and the Caribbean in beautiful Los Angeles, California. We all had one vision in common, i.e. to live a life of purpose, fully embracing our womanhood, blossoming in our SHE essence, creating and collaborating in harmony with other women and thus bringing healing to ourselves and the earth. It was such an eye opening four day event and I, being the only representative from Africa was touched by ...the possibility of bringing harmony to Africa. A community where women could start loving one another, looking into each other’s eyes and declaring this, working together in collaboration, rather than competition and not fighting each other for a change.
My heart sang with this possibility and having returned, I have made a declaration that change begins with me. I am therefore building a community of women visionaries in Zimbabwe, from all walks of life, who feel called to a global purpose apart from their personal and professional purpose. I believe we can build that bridge for African women to be part of this change sweeping through the world, where women are beginning to realise that they need each other more than ever in order to blossom and prosper spiritually, financially and in all their relationships.
Do you think you are called to be a part of this movement? If so, inbox me or declare in this thread.
When I received responses from 7 women , I was convinced this would work, so I started plans for our first harmony circle. I invited 5 women to my house and we had our first circle. Herewith picture taken on 01/11/2015:
This was an exciting time for me. The beginning of a new journey , inspired and encouraged by my BraveHeart sisters across the world. I went on to create a Facebook Group called-"Zimbabwe Harmony Circles". Here I post pictures of our circles and share information about BraveHeart and other circles taking place in other countries.
We have since held 4 circles to-date and our group has grown. We are now a team of women collaborating to bring healing and empowerment to our local women and we are planning on a bigger city wide Harmony Circle scheduled for May 1st, 2015.
