The Teen Talking Circle Project

Special Projects:

Since 1997, Daughters Sisters and Teen Talking Circles have touched tens of thousands of people through trainings, workshops, retreats, speaking tours, books, circles, and special projects. Our three books combined have sold over 50,000 copies and have been translated into Chinese and Turkish.

The Full Woman Project:

The mission of Full Woman is to honor the dignity of women and girls from all walks of life worldwide. Click Here to view the video. Gratitude to Rachel Bagby for the use of her music.

The Soul Path:

Soul Path Project, conceived by Heather Wolf, is a basket of different workshops designed to encourage youth and adults to trust their authentic voice, practice energizing their chakra systems, and learn about medicinal herbal plants. Heather is part of the team leadership at the Women's Retreats 2014, in Mexico. She brings a breath of fresh air and decades of experience to TTC.
