After almost 2 years, we are delighted to announce that the Wellness Course for LGBTQIA+ Women is back!
Join us for our first in-person Wellness Course of 2022! We will be back at our home, Outhouse, 105 Capel Street, Dublin 1.
This FREE course will begin on Wednesday September 14th and will run each Wednesday from 7pm to 9pm for 6 consecutive weeks in Outhouse. It will be a small, inclusive workshop setting with a different topic each week. The topics can include: An introduction to mental health, building self-esteem, resilience, building healthy relationships, accepting and understanding our sexuality and/or gender, sex and sexual health.
By the end of course number 15, 170 people had completed our 6-week wellness course. Women who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, trans, queer, non-binary, asexual, fluid and labeless, from countries such as Ireland, the UK, Zimbabwe, Italy, Spain, France, South Africa, Tunisia, the US, Nepal, Malawi, Paraguay, Venezuela, Brazil, Uganda and Nigeria to name a few. Ages have spanned 5 decades, and participants’ backgrounds are everything and anything you can think of. People have undertaken overnight and multiple transport modes- from Dublin, Meath, Westmeath, Cavan, Kilkenny, Waterford, Cork and Kerry.
People laugh, people cry, people realise their identities, and for some they say them out loud for the first time. Some people make big life changes; coming out in work or to family over the span of the course, and for some participants, showing up every week and even being in the space is a huge achievement.
The one thing participants all share is a desire for connection with their community in a safe space.
Wherever you are from, at whatever stage of your journey you are at, if you want to connect with other women in a safe space and learn from their experiences, then we welcome you to the LGBTQIA+ Women’s Wellness Course.
