They trained with world renowned Gong Master Don Conreaux and it is their aim to introduce these benefits to as many as they can.

Hormonal changes as ‘lighter fluid’ giving us a chance to open our hearts further, become more authentic and live our dream

Human nature and earth’s nature are one with Isabella Quigley Moriarty. We are both the stuff and spark of life. ‘The Change’ can both challenge and gift us. The waxing and waning female hormones affect our emotional learning centre, the amygdala, in our brain. Vascular changes affect our hearts. New forms for creative expression are borne. During her own menopausal years she made a film, wrote a book and was struck by lightning. The effect of the lightning provoked her to study for an MA in Rejuvenation and learn everything she could about ageing and effective self-care. She is a founding Director of Menopause Self Care. She sits on the steering committee of Inclusion Cornwall, representing social enterprise in Cornwall.

MSC encourages women to value and use the hormonal shifts of ‘the Change’ as a chance to further open their hearts to an expanded life that supports adventure, emotional and spiritual maturity, well-being and fulfilment. MSC offers unbiased, comprehensive unique learning intensives for women age 35 to 65. Over a thousand women have attended the day long courses in Cornwall.

‘Women in Conservation’ Conference

*PLEASE NOTE – This event takes place at Penryn Campus.

The conference, ‘Expanding Horizons’, will be in DDM A, followed by a drinks (and free pizza) reception in the Masters Suite on the 5th March, 4-8pm. This is a FREE event.

 

An all-female group of Exeter University students have come together to address their shared concern and passion for gender equality.

‘Women in Conservation’ was born from a discontent in the lack of diversity at the University, both in the visiting, external speakers and internal teaching. The group have therefore decided to host an annual conference showcasing some of the amazing women that have managed to overcome societal obstacles in conservation.

With help and support from the University, Anna, Caitlin, Catherine, Deb, Ella, Emily, Katie and Sarah have now founded the ‘Women in Conservation’ group and set a date for the big event: 5th March. This aligns with both British Science Week (6-15th March 2020) and International Women’s Day (8th March).

The students have put together an impressive line-up of guest speakers, all keen to share with the students their own personal journeys through a male-dominated sector; an invaluable leaning and development experience for all attendees.

Emily Stevenson, member of the committee: “There are often inequalities that we experience in our lives, with little opportunities to be proactive and do something about it. We’re grateful that the University have been so supportive and helpful, hopefully this is something that can continue every year to ensure future students can benefit from what we have started here, together”.

The conference, ‘Expanding Horizons’, will be in DDM A, followed by a drinks (and free pizza) reception in the Masters Suite on the 5th March, 4-8pm. This is a FREE event.

If you have any questions for the team, or would like to find out how you can help/join next year, please email:
