Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams

I’ve just received a statement from Betty Williams, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her work with women and children.  Her statement, relevant to our upcoming event, Women as Leaders, Women as Healers, focuses on women as a force for both peace and transformation.  I’ll be sharing her statement at the event in Denver on October 15 and 16.

Betty Williams was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1976 for her role in establishing a peaceful society and promoting a peaceful resolution in Northern Ireland. Other honors and awards won by her include People’s Peace Prize of Norway, the Schweitzer Medallion for Courage, the Martin Luther King Jr. Award, the Eleanor Roosevelt Award and the Frank Foundation Child Care International Oliver Award. She was awarded the Rotary Club International “Paul Harris Fellowship” in 1995.

When Ms. Williams learned about Women as Leaders, Women as Healers, she was immediately available to make a strong statement about the intention of the event, and the role women are called to play not only in their own families and communities, but also in the global community.  Her interest in
this event speaks volumes about the current call to action for women
everywhere, a call we can’t afford to ignore as we continue to witness the
range of damaging and often dangerous issues that plague us, both locally and
globally.

It’s time for women to remember who they REALLY are, and to step firmly into the role of Wisdom Carrier, Spiritual Advisor, Healer, and Leader that has been the role of the feminine since the beginning of time.  That role hasn’t changed; it’s our memory of that role that has weakened.  When we remember what we are
here to do, and when we have real clarity about purpose, direction, and about
the individual and collective message we have been honored to bring to the
planet, it’s at that point that genuine healing and transformation can begin.

Join us on October 15 and 16 in Denver, Colorado for Women as Leaders, Women as Healers: find your power, change the world.   Connect with other women of like mind, create powerful collaborations, and unite with us all to become a force that is undismissable. www.thinkinglikethebigdogs.com/small
