Practical Skills Empowerment Confidence Building Creating solidarity and sisterhood with other badass women There is a certain sense of confidence and empowerment you feel when you know you have the ability to survive. When you know you have the strength and skills to handle whatever life may throw at you/whatever challenges you may face. When you know you have a badass sisterhood behind you. During this survivalist weekend, we’ll focus on both obtaining and practicing practical survival skills, as well as foster solidarity and sisterhood with a focus on empowerment and confidence building. Creating a safe space to both be vulnerable and powerful in the company of other women on similar journeys. Considerations: We will be off grid camping in a wilderness conservation area around 40 min south of San Cristobal de las Casas. There is extremely limited cellular service and emergency only internet. The property has thunder boxes and a composting toilet and no shower. There is a cistern with running water. There are no shops nearby.
