E.D.E.N. 2016 – Embrace, Believe, Inspire

March 12, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

EDEN 2016

E.D.E.N. is back in 2016!

Embrace Your Dreams * Believe In Your Dreams * Be Inspired

EDEN is a non-religious event to inspire all women of the local Southend community! There will be inspiring speakers from all backgrounds, local Southend women sharing their inspirational stories and insights, fun workshops and an opportunity to develop your self-confidence by participating in the EDEN fashion show “Dress To Express”. Instead of looking for inspiration from celebrities in magazines or on TV, why not look to real women from your own community. (Read our article for more details on last year’s event.)

As an eco-friendly group, attendees are encouraged to create their own name badge for the event to win the Best Badge Award and a prize. There will also be a special prize for the woman who is most inspired, committed and prepared to make a positive change within the next three months! As well as a prize draw to win a set of free life coaching sessions from Purple Genie Life Coaching, there will be tea, coffee and cake! You can also talk to the Active Women Southend team about free fitness classes in the Southend area for women over 22.

What to expect at EDEN 2016

Wendy, event guest from last year:

“I found the whole event to be a fully enjoyable experience, and would like to express my thanks to all involved. The speakers were inspiring and uplifting, they give me so much by sharing their life experiences, and supporting others…. the poetry, music + storybook massage were fun… along with the fashion show, the models all looked beautiful and confident… Well Done!”

Diana, event guest from last year:

“A truly inspirational afternoon, meeting new friends and (surprise!) two people not seen for many years. You have brought joyful and positive women together and broken down barriers between strangers. Thank you!”

Bernie, event guest and founder of Just Listening To You:

“Dear All! What an absolutely amazing and inspirational day! A growing and developing group of strong independent women. I learnt so much about others, about self and about collaboration. Your event has given me the energy I was missing. I am blessed to be here. Love and prays.”

Denise, event guest from last year:

“Wow! What an absolutely amazing event. Every single speaker shared part of their soul with us all. I related to a lot of what they said. Completely inspiring.”
