Body image - finding your way home
Our January main meeting will see a focus on body image as Pippa - founder of the girlness project - joins us for a body image workshop to help us to: consider the way we relate to our bodies; develop a self-compassion practice; understand how our body image informs our behaviour; and develop a positive mindset, cultivate self-acceptance and leave with a renewed sense of appreciation for ourselves and our body.
At the beginning of the meeting we will also have a short members’ talk about the Bone Marrow Donation Process. Open to members (7pm) and visitors (7.30pm).
SSWI Tuesday 08th December 2020
For our December meeting, we'll be hosting a members-only (virtual) Christmas-themed 'get together' - we can sip at our mulled wine or mulled cider, made using the spice packs all Shoreditch Sisters members will have posted to them (you can choose whether to make yours alcoholic or not!), we'll have a fun quiz and also chance to share our favourite festive 'makes' with each other - whether that's a cocktail recipe, bake or something else. Don't worry, this is only for those people that really want to share - everyone else can just soak up the knowledge!
Most importantly, after many weeks of lockdown, this is a great chance to connect together virtually and celebrate!
SSWI Tuesday 10th November 2020
Massage and Wellbeing
November's main meeting will be focused on massage and wellbeing! We’ll learn how to self massage and help ourselves relaaaax 🖐 Enjoy a relaxing neck, shoulder, face and head massage and embrace the wellbeing inside you. 💆🏼♀️ 💆🏾♀️
All you need is :
- a small bowl with 2 tablespoons of oil (olive, vegetable, coconut, baby – whatever you have to hand),
- a small towel,
- a warm & comfortable chair to sit in,
The important stuff: If you have high or low blood pressure then avoid massaging too deeply, just stay light. If you’ve had cancer in the past 2 years, you’ll be fine if you don’t go to heavily on the pressure.
If you’re experiencing any of the following then massage is not suitable for you at this time: COVID19, any virus, any illness, fever, shock, spinal injury, major/minor surgery in the past 6 weeks, and being under the influence of recreational drugs or alcohol – so no drinkypoos before or during dinner.

London's Secrets and Spies: A Virtual Tour
Join us for our October main meeting where we’ll join City of London guide David Charnick, for a virtual tour all about London’s secrets and spies! 🕵🏼♀️
The world of British Intelligence is dominated by MI5, MI6 and GCHQ. This tour sees some of their traces in London, and explores aspects of the development of British intelligence. We'll join David in an exploration of espionage and counter-espionage, terrorism, bravery and treachery.
Though this will be a virtual event, there'll be photos and discussion to give us a simulation of the tour as it would be delivered on the streets of Westminister, with the opportunity to ask questions too!
SSWI Tuesday 08th September 2020
We're working really hard to line up some great meetings for the rest of the year - but, as we would normally only do 11 meetings a year anyway, September will be our month without a meeting.
We'll resume as normal with our October meeting on Tuesday 13th October - further details to come, so please stay tuned 😀
