Join Cris Linnares, Brazilian Psychotherapist and Founder of Women’s Impact, in this hilarious, uplifting and never before seen COMEDY-THERAPY EXPERIENCE.
Based on one of Cris’s TEDxtalk #stopSELFswearing and on her internationally-acclaimed wellness program Diva Dance®, this unforgettable workshop uses dance, comedy, psychology and group interaction to reveal the lies or “self-swearing word” that are in the way of you becoming your un-apologetically passionate, joyful and fearless self!
Research shows that women apologize more than men, not because we do more wrong things, but because we see ourselves as “wrong.”
After working with women’s empowerment for almost 20 years, Cris Linnares realized that:
” We have the tendency to apologize for who we are, and by doing this, we can limit the definition of who we were created to be. The way we see ourselves has a huge impact not just in our health and self-worth, but in our life and in the destiny of our world.” – Cris Linnares, Brazilian Psychotherapist, Founder of Women’s Impact and creator of WTF³ Revolution -Women Totally Free, Fun and Fearless.
