About Pathways Centre
Paths of Empowerment for Women through Art Therapy, Dance and Meditation
Pathways Center was established in 2004. by Andrea Weiss Sadeh. Andrea followed her own inner voice and need to help women reveal their authentic self and break away from the chains of patriarchy. The Pathways Centre is a place where women gather to recall and re-establish their connection with innate feminine creativity, power and self- love. The workshops and individual sessions offer you an opportunity to embrace the path of empowerment and change in a creative way. The purpose of this work is to help you express your authentic self easily in every domain of your life, as well as to create a strong field of self-respect and love.
Your authentic feminine nature is nature of radiant Goddess, and in Pathways Center we offer you knowledge and support how to include her wisdom and radiance in your day-to-day activities.
In small groups of women, or during individual sessions, you will be gently led to relax and express yourself by spontaneous painting, free movement and dance, conscious breathing and grounding in your body, visualisation and meditation. You will also experience support of other women in group and spontaneously open up to intimate sharing of your experiences and insights, witnessing healing process of your own and of each woman in the group.
During the workshops women have shown great interest, deep commitment and amazing courage in pursuing personal growth and changes in their lives. The gentle flow of energy that moves these workshops is self-love, since it is the only love that facilitates personal growth and conscious life change.
