Uncover Your Creative Power

A 4-Part Workshop for Women

Available until Online

Unearth your truest voice in this 4-part workshop for women led by Elizabeth Lesser, Kemi Nekvapil, and Loung Ung.

There’s a rich well of creative power inside of women, waiting to be tapped and expressed. How do we uncover that voice? How do we learn to trust our instincts, intuition, and unique ways of leading—at home, at work, in the world?

Join best-selling author and Omega cofounder Elizabeth Lesser, Australian-based coach and leadership expert Kemi Nekvapil, and human rights activist and author Loung Ung, for a deep dive into discovering, (re)connecting with, and expressing your truest voice.

In addition to guidance and practices, there will be time for Q&A with each of the instructors, as well as a final session with all three in conversation. Explore the challenges and the rewards of trusting your truth, speaking up from the inside-out, and doing power differently.

This workshop will be offered in four sessions.

Session 1: Find Your Voice with Elizabeth Lesser
Session 2: Trust Your Dreams with Kemi Nekvapil
Session 3: Release Your Creative Power with Loung Ung
Session 4: Bringing Our Voices Together


Schedule

Session 1: Find Your Voice
Faculty: Elizabeth Lesser
Date: Wednesday, April 7, 7:00-9:00 p.m. EDT (4:00-6:00 p.m. PDT)

Elizabeth Lesser offers ways to foster “innervism” in this clip from a conversation with journalist Maria Shriver.

In her new book, Cassandra Speaks: When Women Are the Storytellers, the Human Story Changes, Elizabeth Lesser articulates the importance of awakening from the old stories that have kept women from trusting what we know and who we are.

“It’s time for us to redefine courage, and to be a new kind of leader—at home with our kids and our mates, and at work and in the world,” she says.

Elizabeth guides you in meditation, conversation, writing, and other exercises to heal what stands between you and your truest voice, to value what you know, and to follow your boldest vision.


Session 2: Trust Your Dreams
Faculty: Kemi Nekvapil
Date: Wednesday, April 14, 7:00-9:00 p.m. EDT (4:00-6:00 p.m. PDT)

Kemi Nekvapil explores how your life can be improved by getting comfortable with asking.

In her work as a coach, speaker, and workshop leader, Kemi Nekvapil has observed an increase in global change as a result of women using their voices. To build upon that change, Kemi invites you to acknowledge who you are, who you want to be, and to bridge the gap with support—to own your dreams, your challenges, and your voice.

Through conversation, meditation, and journaling, you explore:

  • Learning how to ask for more, ask for different, ask for better
  • Naming and owning the aspects of your inner voice that are no longer serving you.
  • Using your own journey toward empowerment to help other women do the same

Kemi says, “The more of us who can stand in our personal power and use our voices, the better, and with that privilege, I believe we must speak for those women who cannot. We are all in this together.”


Session 3: Release Your Creative Power
Faculty: Loung Ung
Date: Wednesday, April 21, 7:00-9:00 p.m. EDT (4:00-6:00 p.m. PDT)

Loung Ung describes a 4-part exercise she created to neutralize inner turmoil and rewrite her narrative.

As a child, driven by her inability to speak the words to describe her pain, Loung Ung recorded her thoughts onto the pages of her journals. Many years later, those pages would become her memoir, First They Killed My Father, the story of surviving the Cambodian killing fields. Through the writing of it, she also came to understand the healing power of rewriting her narrative from victim to survivor, from scared child to an advocate for peace.

In this workshop, Loung shares tools to help you rewrite your narrative and change your life. Through writing exercises, conversation, and small-group sharing, Loung will guide you to write your story and use your voice for what matters most.


Session 4: Bringing Our Voices Together
Faculty: Elizabeth Lesser, Kemi Nekvapil, and Loung Ung
Date: Wednesday April 28, 7:00-8:00 p.m. EDT (4:00-5:00 p.m. PDT)

Elizabeth Lesser, Kemi Nekvapil, and Loung Ung

Elizabeth, Kemi, and Loung close out this series with a far-reaching one-hour conversation about the power and pleasure of women helping each other change and uplift our individual and collective voices. They will also weave together the themes of their respective sessions and take your questions.
