FESTIVAL DU FÉMININ

by Expat Life

A transformative journey by women for women

Thailand‟s fourth year to welcome again an exceptional, for women only‟ event in Bangkok on March, 15-16th, 2019 hosted at Swissôtel Bangkok Ratchada.

A growing global-awakening sisterhood festival.

Welcome to the 4th edition of Festival du Féminin

in Bangkok, an internationally registered event for women of every culture to experience awakening and empowerment in a safe and intimate environment. Festival du Féminin

is a journey of self-discovery that allows us to feel, access and reconnect with the multiple facets of ourselves, breaking away from the rigid expectations of peers, parents, colleagues, partners, and society at large. Women empower one another when they connect with their inner selves, with one another, and with the world. Founded in Paris, this sisterhood movement has since developed in more than 10 countries (Canada, USA, Mexico, Columbia, India, Morocco, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand) while new projects are initiated in Indonesia, Japan, and the Middle East.

The vision of Festival du Féminin is to bring together a large tribe of women, giving them opportunities to meet, share, transmit, honor and celebrate precious moments of their life and inner paths. It invites them to discover, or rediscover, the power, the sweetness, the safety of bonds and friendships connecting and feeling what they have in common, and to explore the lights and shadows inside them and to heal their lineage wounds.

An intimate exploration of the multi-facets of the feminine!

Through interactive workshops, get ready to celebrate a two-day event devoted to body-mind experiences, women‟s personal growth, the healing arts and spirituality, hosted by an array of local and international facilitators who are midwives, energetic healers, artists, psychologists, scientists, coaches, therapists, business executives, writers, and more.

There are a range of inspirational experiences awaiting participants to nurture every aspect of their being. There are 20 workshops to choose from. Some are more dynamic in nature, brought to life with chants, raising us up through movement, a chance to release and let go. Yet others are a softer and more subtle femininity in motion. Other workshops are more reflective, where we delve into exploring our psyche, our emotions, our weak points, discomforts, and what we have trouble expressing. We will seek healing through rituals and forgiveness circles, family constellations, gong & Tibetan singing bowls, Primitive Expression AND MORE.

The panel discussion, another highlight of the festival.

Inspiring Thai women are sharing their thoughts, hopes, and challenges on how to empower today‟s women to reach their fullest potential. This year‟s topic is about the relationship we have with our body.

A light, relaxing, FUN and entertaining evening on Friday 15th.

The Adventure of the Festival shares the story of the traveling necklace, followed by Improvisation Playtime to enjoy laughter, creativity, and joyous celebration before listening to Tibetan singing bowls. Come with a friend! Listen to their testimony: It is fun, it is joyful, it is liberating, it is convivial, it is powerful, it is communicative, it is fulfilling, it is vibrant, it is pleasurable, and it is in full swing!

Where am I as a woman? How do I live my femininity in my heart, in my body, in my belly? Come and share in consciousness these unique moments of deep listening and encounters: opening up to oneself and to the other, becoming an agent of change for the world we wish to build. This is a sisterhood movement blossoming across the world. It thoughtfully considers a longing for values and liberty, a longing for grounding and harmony to contribute to the re-enchantment of the world. Join us, connect, laugh, cry and be your authentic self. We are all unique women and we will honor that during the festival.

Welcoming words by the organizing team of Festival du Féminin

. An opening ceremony to anchor and ground our shared space as a safe container in order to satisfy our longing for meaningful connections, to foster vulnerability & empowerment, and encourage us to nurture ourselves with compassion.How would the world change TODAY if women came together as sisters undeterred by their differences; to support and empower one another regardless of their age, race, culture, sexuality, religion, socioeconomic status, physical appearance and abilities, or language? For centuries women have gathered in circle to commune with each other through genuine interest and acceptance. Bonds between women can be some of the most intensely satisfying and unbreakable. We learn to see and hear one another and to offer our support without imposing advice or placing judgment, recognizing that each woman is whole and complete even when in the midst of a personal challenge.
