SheHive in Ferndale Offers Women-Centered Events and Classes
(SheHive, Nov. 15, 2016)
Ferndale, MI– The SheHive, an intentional community where women who want to live to the fullest expression of their authentic selves gather to connect and grow, announced its first office is officially open and hosting events. The SheHive is located at 1840 Hilton Rd., Ste. 101 in Ferndale.
Founded in 2016 by Detroiter Ursula Adams and Royal Oak resident Andrea Clegg Corp, The SheHive is equal parts best girlfriend’s living room, mom’s kitchen table, girls’ night out and favorite classroom. It is a place for members to connect with and learn from women who are fiercely committed to helping each other discover the best parts of themselves. Programming is co-created by the SheHive for the SheHive and includes workshops, seminars, coaching and special events focused on all facets of members’ well-being.
“In a day and age where technology enables women to be more connected than ever, we’ve actually become more disconnected from people,” Adams said. “We know there are a ton of women out there in the same boat and that many of them are rowing that boat all alone. They’re tired, overwhelmed, scared and just about “this close” to being so burnt out that something—the job, the business, the marriage, the house, their health—is about to go down in a giant ball of flames.”
Corp said, “Emotional, spiritual and physical health is—and will always be—a cornerstone of the success of the SheHive. Our organization, like us—the women who founded it—and every woman who walks through its doors, is a work in progress. We want to help however we can.”
Members are teachers, storytellers, CEOs, scholars, yogis, artists, mothers, daughters, sisters, goddesses and friends with the goal of building a hive full of brave women seeking intentional growth, community and life.
SheHive workshops will be priced about $20 – $25 per session. Signature series classes—the Lady Boss Leadership Network and Warrior Goddess Wisdom—include one-on-one coaching in addition to class time and are priced accordingly.
Upcoming classes and gatherings include:
The Weekly Waggle
Hosted every Wednesday from 7 – 9 p.m., the Weekly Waggle is a lively, guided conversation on topics chosen by the Hive. No topic is off limits. From politics to sex to religion and family, members will explore it all. This event is offered for a donation only. Funds collected benefit The SheHive scholarship fund, providing assistance for women working on their Ultimate Life Lists (Bucket Lists) at the SheHive.
Bad Ass Ladies Supper Club
Join the SheHive for its first-ever Bad Ass Ladies Supper Club. Together, members will work on Life Lists (Bucket Lists) and support each other in living out-loud. Members will meet once a month for a year. Each meeting will include dinner and an adventure selected from collective lists. Cost: $25.
Toast2U is a monthly encouragement and accountability party for women of all ages. Each month Hive members gather to practice intentional celebration in a fun, supportive and safe environment. This event supports members as they learn to celebrate personal victories and set new intentions for the coming month. Cost: $20.
Lady Boss Network: Survival Skills for the Small Business Owner
As awesome as being the boss can be, it can also be scary, lonely and downright taxing. Starting Tuesday, Nov. 15, this two-month course provides female entrepreneurs a support network where, together, they learn how to incorporate practices into daily life that provide the resilience and energy needed to make themselves, and their businesses, thrive.
The course offers five in-person meetings with the cohort, as well as two one-on-one coaching sessions with SheHive founder, Ursula Adams, MSPOD – a certified leadership coach and small business owner. The series will run through Jan. 24, 2017. This pilot of the Lady Boss Leadership Program is being offered at a one-time discounted rate in Winter 2016 and is limited to ten participants. Cost: $250 (a $600 value).
