We invite you to an extra special CF&I Celebrant Wisdom Webinar and Audio (call in) interview on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016 at 9 PM ET with Madeleine Shaw, the Vancouver, BC-based Co-founder and Creative Director of Lunapads, an award-winning pioneer in the field of natural menstrual health. In an effort to fulfill a lifelong wish to have been recognized in her community as a girl beginning her journey towards adulthood, in 2013 she founded G Day, a community-based rite of passage celebration series that honours the transition between childhood and adolescence.
G Day events bring together tween girls ages 10 to 12 and their Champions - parents and other supportive adults in girls' lives - for a day of stories, wisdom sharing and celebration.
G Days have taken place in three Canadian cities so far (Vancouver, Victoria BC, and Toronto ON), and based on their success Madeleine is exploring ways to expand to other cities by partnering with local leaders who feel called to supporting girls and families in this unique way. With their specialized interest and training, Professional Life-Cycle Celebrants® are ideally suited to lead G Day events. Madeleine is seeking survey participants as part of her research, as well as four individuals in US cities interested in piloting G Day events in 2018.
Madeline tells us:
"G Day at its heart is about being witnessed and held in community, about feeling safe, seen, and connected. G Day offers an opportunity - if only for a day - for us to experience being the proverbial "Village" that it takes to raise a child."
As part of the teleconference, Madeleine will share with us a beautiful slide presentation and is excited to answer questions and gather feedback from our community. In the meantime, those interested are encouraged to explore the G Day website and YouTube channel to learn more. You can also learn more about Madeleine and her "Adventures in Social Entrepreneurship" here.
