Weaving our Dreams into Reality: Live Event from Nepal on International Women's Day

Updated: Apr 14, 2022


Please mark your calendar for an extraordinary global event we are supporting for the benefit of the Empowerment Collective in celebration of International Women's Day. We will be streaming live on zoom from both Nepal and Portland!

Tuesday, March 8th

10 am - 11:30 am PST / 6 pm - 7:30 pm GMT

The event benefits the Empowerment Collective in their efforts to rescue women and girls from modern-day slavery by providing them job and skills training, stipends, and well-paying jobs to rise from poverty and become autonomous beings. The Empowerment Collective is a 501c3 nonprofit based in the US and Nepal helmed by Nasreen Sheikh, a survivor of modern-day slavery, international speaker, entrepreneur, and advocate for global human rights.

Here's what you'll experience:

  • Enjoy curated traditional Nepali music and dance presentations from the comfort of your home.

  • Meet talented Nepali artisans and hear their transformational stories.

  • Experience a Puja - a spiritual ceremony to release the past and welcome in your highest possibilities.

  • Change from the inside out with a transformational workshop on becoming a conscious consumer.

  • Be uplifted and inspired by international women leaders.

  • By purchasing a ticket, you are participating in the Empowerment Collective Fundraiser. Generous donors are matching every dollar.

Something magical is happening when dreams become realities, create a ripple effect, then connect and interweave with other women's dreams to become a rich and beautiful tapestry for a more connected and equitable world. This is what's possible when women collaborate and you can be a big part of this! IFD is honored and delighted to be part of this fundraiser and I hope you will join us and other women dreamers for a better world and to celebrate what's possible when we lift each other. Get your tickets here.

About the Book

"Conscious design is a philosophy used at the Peterman Design Firm. We use it to create brands and products that restore and sustain our planet. The Peterman Method for conscious design is the culmination of Ian’s 15+ years working in product development and Jessica’s 20 years in working as a healer and studying regenerative technologies and tools for both people and our planet. Together, we’ve written this book to lay out a culmination of our combined experiences. Our goal is to help other people start looking at the world, and design, in a more conscious way."
