Desert Lily Tribe: A Girls Empowerment Group

Empower. Connect. Create
Desert Lily is a 6 week group for young girls age 11-14 and her caregiver (mother, father, grandparent, aunt, etc..)
This girls empowerment group of deep connection for girls and caregivers. We believe that change is essential for both child and adult in order to gracefully navigate the changes a young girl is making. True empowerment happens when both the child and adult has accessed their truth and power from within. The deeper connection a young girl has to herself first and then her primary caregiver will allow her to step into her truth and power in authentic and lasting ways.
Each week we'll focus on a topic that helps facilitate connection and growth ranging from goals, relationships, emotions, brain/body connection, trust, and community. 
We'll spend the first portion of our time together each week talking, accessing our truth, co-creating art and growing as a whole group. For the second half of our time together we'll split up into two groups: a girls group and an adult group to do specific work in our peer group. We'll be using art, nature, movement and connection to explore our topics.
This group is facilitated by three women who together have over 30 years experience working with adolescents as teachers, guides, and therapists. Each woman brings a depth of knowledge and wisdom both personally and professionally.

Sara Beth is a child therapist and yoga teacher who specializes in trauma informed care in Bend. 
Lauren Van Coutren is a trained nature therapist and a elementary teacher. 
Shanti is a licensed teacher and counselor in Bend who works with women.
