DESCRIPTION: Women’s only jams seeks to empower women physically and emotionally. It is a place for those that identify as women to take their concerns and have them held. All the sessions are run in a way that the group puts its needs forwards and then the group leaders design the programming according to what the needs in the group are. This way the “what” of what the women’s circle/jams will be determined through group process organically.

  1. I thought you would like to know you misspelled the word “accomodate”. Silly mistakes are a pet peeve of mine and they can ruin your website’s credibility. In the past I’ve used a tool like to keep mistakes off my website.
