The Feminine Tide

The Feminine Tide, Living with Purpose, is a two-part workshop where we guide women, step by step on a journey to find their own unique purpose.

As women, we all share a set of extraordinary qualities that allow our social, cultural and natural contribution to be unique. Those qualities, namely, empathy, intuition, resilience, sense of responsibility towards others or a sense of giving, to name a few, could be hidden after years of trying to fit in a box that doesn’t adjust to our vital purpose.

Ours is a practical, hands on program that requires courage and discipline to helps each and every one of the participants to identify emotional and behavioral patterns that get in the way of living a happier and more conscious life.

Upon completion of Part I, you will understand how you function and why. We will guide you to connect with your inner self and analyze the way you perceive the problems that we all encounter in life; dealing with a past event, lack of clear boundaries, resistance to leaving your comfort zone.

In Part II, you get practical, simple (not easy) tools to implement changes that will help you take everything you learned on Part I, one step further by taking concrete action to effect some real change in your life.

You will learn to look at your life from a different prism, and change the way you act to achieve results more in line with your true purpose.

Thanks to this workshop, you will be able to empower yourself to break patterns of auto sabotage once and for all, limitations caused by fear or victimization.

Learn the role that emotions have in our lives and how they control our though process. We will guide you to tap on them and heal your wounds from past experiences.

Are you ready? Do you love yourself enough to turn your life into the life that you want?

About Us

We are Gladys van Oosterum and Lara Ekmekji. Gladys holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Education (1982) and an M.B.A. (1985). In 2013, she completed Master’s in Adolescent Psychology. Lara completed her  Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from AUB (1996) and recently has completed two coaching courses: “Life Coaching”  from Tony Robbins and “Claim your Power” from Mastin Kipp in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

As good friends for thirteen years already, we have always been each other’s therapist.
Two years ago, we decided to dive into the concept of self-esteem and realisation, going deep into all its aspects, especially in the blockages that prevent people from finding their true essence.

All our lives, we have emotionally accompanied family members and friends through the guidance of our training, our experience and our cultural diversity. As we have witnessed the transformation they have achieved, and as a consequence of the multiple requests that we have received, we have decided to share the scope of our learning, creating a two-part workshop for women only, where every single one of the participants is able to elaborate a version of themselves where they feel complete and unique.

At the same time, we will all be helping cancer research for children, donating part of the cost of the entrance to the workshop to Sueño de Vicky Foundation, here is Spain.

Our objective is to help as many women as possible to achieve a happier and more fulfilled life.

A percentage of your proceeds

will be donated to

El Sueño de Vicky Foundation
