Well-being & Storytelling Program for Girls & Women

Females often experience heightened levels of stress as a result of societal expectations impacting their ability to navigate the world and shape their self-perception.


Over time, these pressures can become overwhelming and diminish their self-worth. This stress can also contribute to anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges.


By acknowledging these key issues and incorporating practices that promote well-being and self-empowerment, we strive to support individuals on their journey toward self-discovery and personal growth.

In our workshops, we provide individuals with the tools to uncover and nurture themselves through the transformative power of storytelling and self-care practices.

What people say

Hawanatu's Workshop was a beautiful glimpse into what's possible when we take a moment to breathe and listen to our inner stories. Despite a quick pivot to the digital format, Hawanatu presented a well formulated and engaging workshop filled with practical mindfulness techniques presented in an easy to understand way. Our goal for the day was to create a strong foundation for young people to go forth and tell their stories on their own terms, and I believe Hawanatu made this possible using a mixture of personal reflection and group exercises that let everyone interact with the material on their own terms.
