Salon #6 [LOVE]


Upcoming
Event

We are excited to announce our new quarterly theme is L O V E

We want to explore the role of L O V E in our lives – not just romantically, but in all the relationships we nurture with others, and with our selves. We believe that herein lies a potential revolution… a radical overhaul of the patriarchal notion that sensitivity (to ourselves and to others) is a weakness. In the words of the great bell hooks: “To love well is the task in all meaningful relationships, not just romantic bonds.” (All About Love: New Visions). To allow Love into our lives – across all the avenues we tread – is perhaps the bravest act of all and we want to explore its potential.

The Salon will be the same set-up as before (if it ain’t broke dont fix it). Tickets include the usual fair: a free glass of prosecco or a non-alcoholic tipple and nibbles, plus a whole lotta beautiful gifts from our sponsors. Never say we don’t treat ya. Our last events have been rip-roaring SELL OUTS and we hate turning yous away so please do buy your tickets in advance – we really want you there.

As ever, we’re inviting a handful of remarkable women to come speak for five minutes on our theme to kick start the conversation in the room (no stuffy Q&A’s here thank you very much). And we’re SUPER excited by the women we’ve got fronting our line-up this time around. In our first wave of speaker announcements are the brilliant:
