The entire month of March will feature live workshops with incredible, extraordinary women from all walks of life – engaging you in conversation, and “Round Table” discussions with other women world wide.

Once you register, you will receive your personal dial in number and pin code to use for the entire month. Browse our calendar and clear your engagements! Each of our speakers represents a level of knowledge, success and passion that is truly remarkable. Get “up close and personal” with internationally acclaimed actresses, best selling authors, scientists, executives, activists and artists. This month could change your life.

*Some of our keynote speakers include the illustrious Jane Goodall, actress Mimi Kennedy, author and speakers Lynn McTaggert, Arielle Ford, and Marci Shimoff, the founder of Greenpeace, the former CEO of Genentec, the head of PETA, and the composer of Cirque de Soleil – just to name a few! Conceived and hosted by Madeleine Marentette of Grail Springs Spa & Retreat Center, ongoing events will simultaneously take place at the spa- located north of Toronto, Canada.

Have you ever heard of International Women’s Day? It is currently not celebrated in the United States or Canada. Yet 152 countries around the world like China, Russia and Eastern Europe celebrate March 8th as a day to honor women. 100 years ago, in 1911, International Women’s Day (IWD) was honored the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. More than one million women and men attended IWD rallies campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination. The movement spread to the US, and launched the galvanization of the suffragette movement.

Suffragettes campaigned for women’s right to vote. The word ‘Suffragette’ is derived from the word “suffrage” meaning the right to vote. International Women’s Day honors the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women’s success, and reminds of inequities still to be addressed.

 From Suffragette to Social Networker- join us as we celebrate together!

100 years is a long time; or a mere blink of the eye, depending on how you look at it. What will the world look like in 2111? It seems unimaginable. It must have felt the same to women living in 1911. To them, 2011 was an age so far into the future; the mind could hardly grasp the possibilities. And indeed, so much of our world has transformed; with our advances in technology and science. Our land is criss-crossed with roads, shopping malls, high rises, and the skies are filled with airplanes helicopters and satellites. Our daily life is preoccupied with texting, twitter, facebook and Youtube, and all our money is exchanged on a piece of plastic.

Yet the value of gathering round a table to share a meal and a conversation has not been forgotten. Nor has the value of friendship, of connection- of community. Register now and become part of the change.

Registration Options-

The sponsors and developers of the 100 WOD event believe all women, of all ages, should have equal access to participate, and have developed a sliding registration scale.

The fee for an entire month of access to these amazing speakers, and inclusion in our community is only $100. This includes all podcast recordings for later use. Imagine the cost of attending a live event of this caliber, not to mention the hassle of traveling? We bring the content to you, in the comfort of your own home.

If this is out of your reach, we are also offering a pass of $50- with a choice of ten podcasts.

And, for those who are struggling to make ends meet- join us for free. Just “pay it forward!” Tweet about us, write a blog posting, share us on Facebook and drag all your friends.

 

Become a host in your community!

We welcome everyone to our Women of Destiny community table.
