Woman Within UK is a grassroots women’s organisation
for women who want to be their best.
The first Woman Within Weekend® was established by Char Tosi in Wisconsin USA, in 1987. Following attendance and training, a group of women with vision and passion established Woman Within UK in 1996, to continue Char’s work across Europe.
Our mission is simple:
to help women to empower themselves and be their best possible self.
For centuries, women have gathered together to see, hear and support each other; to be held when we feel alone, challenged when we’re stuck and loved when we believe that we aren’t worthy.
Woman Within UK is led by a group of women who offer their gifts, their time and their commitment voluntarily, to ensure that there is a space for women to find their own solutions and discover their power within.
The Heart of Woman Within UK
Woman Within UK is based on the premise that everyone possesses both masculine and feminine energy.
Research shows many of today’s problems stem from an imbalance of the masculine and feminine. The emphasis towards masculinity has drawn out negative qualities such as loss of connection, competition, power hierarchies, separation and control through fear.
Vulnerability as a strength has been lost and is perceived as weakness, when historically in ancient worlds vulnerability was celebrated as an attribute to the gods.
The imbalance of masculine and feminine energy must be brought back into alignment for a harmonious co-existence.
Woman Within UK believes that:
- By moving towards inner balance and wholeness an outer balance and harmony is realised.
- Harmony reduces violence, repression and fear.
- Wholeness embraces our vulnerability, authenticity and worthiness.
- From wholeness, we recognise that love and compassion are the gateway to intimacy and the key to all relationships.
- From wholeness, we recognise that fear is simply the absence of love.
Woman Within UK mission
To create a world where women know, embrace, live and lead from their truth. We do this by inspiring women to connect both with all parts of themselves and to a deep sense of their place in the world. We seek to provide opportunities for women to support transformation and growth, within themselves and other women. Our core values reflect inclusiveness, respect and integrity.
