Conversations That Connect – For Women – Autumn Series 

(People who identify as women or non-binary welcome)


We started  a series of fearless conversations here in Scotland in December 2017 about intimacy, what our sexuality means to us, about who we are as women, lovers, sisters and partners. We want to find out our growing edges as we explore relationships that work for us that are rooted in love for self and others.

We are ready for more conversations that connect. We want to meet other women, discuss, laugh and cry as we share, explore and learn together.

We are delighted to offer a series of 3 more facilitated conversations this Autumn:

Monday 24th September – Living With Our Gendered Labels

Tuesday 6th November  –  Patriarchy and its impact on Women

Monday 26th November  – Sex and asking for what you want

All events from 7-9.30pm. Location Stockbridge, Edinburgh – full details on booking(which is essential).             Please commit to at least 2 of these 3 evenings.

For more information or to book a place please contact Shona at or Roz at

Whether you are in an intimate relationship or not all are welcome, all our relationships matter those with family, with friends, with our planet.

This is an informal event there will be some wine and we will be hosting the conversation so we ask for donations of £10 per person with a sliding scale of between £5 and £15.

Deepening NVC Skills and Practice Trainings

In 2019 I will offer a series of Deepening Trainings – details to follow.

“I took Roz’s afternoon session on expressing one’s needs, and her simple 3-step approach especially the point about four sets of ears really hit the spot. So succinct, realistic, and altogether a Big “Ah-Ha” that made total sense for the particular learning-situation in my own life I was struggling with. Excellent! ”   Course Participant 2017

Whole Person Leadership Day

In 2019 a group of Co-Facilitators will offer a second Whole Person Leadership Day, after the success of last year’s pilot.

“There’s something there that I feel everybody could benefit from – time and space to self- reflect, self- evaluate. Also just some really important personal and professional lessons that I feel could enhance the lives of others – highly recommend!” 

“Very innovative, alternative and thought-provoking. Jogged me out of ‘business as usual”

“I loved that the form of the day and the way it was delivered fitted its content. It was really lovely to be led by “whole people” in all their complex humanity rather than traditional authoritative trainers. This was unique in my experience of workshops and lectures”
