Feminist Business School: Concepts & Conception

Feminist Business School: Concepts & Conception

from 400.00

September 10 to November 5, 2017

This is an introductory course for those wanting to birth a new business, or a new way of being in business. In this eight-week intensive, participants gain a deeper understanding of how to embody feminine and feminist principles in business. We begin by diving into the Feminine Economy, we contemplate capitalism, cozy up to feminist theory, and consider what feminist entrepreneurship could look like. Next, we relearn what a business is, and explore the stages of birthing a business, giving special attention to the Conception phase—the beginning—where anything is possible. Finally, we start to dissolve our patriarchal thinking as we rewrite our relationship to money and power.

During this eight-week course, you will discover the constitutive elements of your business, articulate your core values, reconnect with your purpose and pleasures, develop body-loving business practices, and begin cultivating a new money consciousness. I provide you with the information and tools to help you imagine possibilities, become more visionary, and find a deeper sense of pleasure and play, as you move through fears and blockages. Through readings, audio recordings, group discussions, guided visualizations, writing assignments, and creative exercises, you will become more integrated and embodied as you conceive your own sustainable feminist business.
