The Women's Empowerment Circle


The Women's Empowerment Circle (WEC) is an initiative to provide women with practical and useful self-mastery tools to help them reveal the power they have within. These tools help participants become aware of their ability to create the life they truly enjoy. Our practice becomes a way to love and care for ourselves in the deepest ways. We tackle many concepts including but not limited to 

  • Self-awareness

  • Narrative Identity

  • Visualization

  • Transforming Self-limiting Beliefs

  • Personal Mastery

  • The Empowerment Dynamic


This work emerges in the form of workshops, webinars, and worksheets that equip participants with ownership over their expansion and empowerment. We use a multidisciplinary approach, leveraging methodologies from leadership development, empowerment coaching, neuroscience, sociology, performance arts, and more. Participants leave with a sense of empowerment and a set of self-guided practices that they can continue to implement, crafting their own empowerment practice! See what some of our past participants are saying in the testimonials!

The WEC first launched in Iowa City, Iowa as a four- part series of confidential weekly workshops for women of the community ready to build a self-empowerment practice. 

In this series, we covered the core concepts of the power of thoughts, beliefs, vision, emotions, and actions. Every session the women left with one or two simple tools they could start working with in their lives to begin cultivating their power.

We have expanded our offerings and created an online community on Facebook and Instagram all inspired from this first series. Scroll down for testimonials!

The debut of the WEC

Where it all began

London Williams

I began the year motivated to see real change and growth in all areas of my life. Soon after I heard about a women’s empowerment group, which seemed to be right on time. From the sessions I learned to speak and visualize the things I want into existence, to be kinder to myself, and as a bonus I meet some awesome ladies in the process.

If you're thinking about going to this, stop thinking and sign up now! I wasn't sure what to expect so I only signed up for the first session, but after I left, I immediately knew I wanted to complete the series! Yasmin has clearly done her research and helped me to reflect on my true self and work towards becoming the strong, independent, empowered woman I want to be!

Kaamilya KoKeaux Antjè

During the classes you learn skills, habit changing techniques and positive thought provoking tools that equip you to be mindful of self. [WEC] is a place where women gather to empower and grow interdependent and independently. I was able to learn how to be one with my self, the awareness of condescending thoughts and beliefs. Henceforth, I have better tools to keep me focused on myself, my goals, my happiness and worthiness.
