Sonia PaliaHi, I’m Sonia!
I’m one of the women in this year’s First Circle.

Last year was the first time I attended Being Woman and in fact it was the first time I’d ever attended any type of women’s gathering and had no idea what to expect! But at the beginning of the year I had made a conscious decision that I was going to dedicate that year to my inner growth, spirituality and healing old wounds so when I saw the event on Facebook just a month before the even I felt called to buy a ticket and attend.

I went alone and though I didn’t know anyone there I immediately felt at ease and comfortable as soon as I got there. Well, the experience was so wonderful and inspiring that at the closing ceremony my legs walked me into the centre to step up for First Circle even though my head was still ticking thinking of all the reasons why I couldn’t do it, too busy, enough on my plate, don’t have the time, etc. And on top of that I didn’t even know what being in First Circle entailed! LOL! Yet I knew in my heart that that’s exactly where I needed to be so I stayed… not that my legs were going to take me anywhere else anyway despite all the head chatter! LOL!

And now I know why I was meant to be in First Circle this year. I feel so blessed to have shared this amazing journey with my beautiful and wise First Circle sisters and I am so thankful for their support, insight and wisdom. As well as all the wonderful facilitators who have taken us through beautiful inner work throughout the year… I have had an incredible journey of growth and becoming the conscious woman that I aspire to be and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to join such a beautiful community.

My background is in Project Management but aside from work my passions are animals, dancing and music and anything creative really. Have been dancing all kinds of styles since I was 5 and have been playing African drums for 15 years, djembe and doun doun predominantly. Dance and music are what has kept me alive, young and inspired all these years! I live with my beautiful staffy dog and my gorgeous 11 kg gigantic cat named Gordon!

I look forward to meeting all you beautiful women that will be attending this year’s Being Woman and seeing you find your wings so you have the Freedom to Fly!
