The Connection to Femininity

The Process of Art Workshops for Women

Collect women together, save the world...

The energy of gathered women will be born of the mixture of

love, bravery, ideas, comments and catchy laugh,

 and the will of achieving the change.

(Jean Shinoda Bolen)

Nowadays we need femininity and feminine values maybe more than ever. We see daily in the news and in our lives, how the old ways of power, battle, and other patriarchic models do not work anymore. That is the reason it feels meaningful to collect the group and start to give birth for a new with the help of femininity and arts.


The Connection to Femininity -workshop process is for women, who want both to search connection to themselves, to other people, to surrounding world, and share experiences by learning together, changing things.

Art and its methods at best may help we to encounter a new perspective, and a change. Art makes possible to participate, research, experience, recognizing, and sharing. It increases the connection between people and other living. The Connection to Femininity -workshops consist sharing experiences of different themes, and also expressive art therapy, healing arts, and various methods of contemplation: dancing, writing, painting, meditating, discussing, and drama.


The Art Workshop -process includes nine workshops, which will be carried out mainly on the first Saturday of every month, starting from March 2024. The language in the workshops will be both Finnish and English.

The themes of the workshops are:


  1. Connection to Yourself (March)

  2. Connection to Emotions (April)

  3. Connection to Body and Sexuality (May)

  4. Connection to your Way of Doing (June)

  5. Connection to Women (the start of August)

  6. Connection to Men (the end of August)

  7. Connection to Nature (October)

  8. Connection to Spirituality (November)

  9. Connection to Universe (December)
