Womens Confidence Collective

 

The Women’s Confidence Collective is a forum where women can come together, speak in confidence, and share experiences while they learn tool

When women come together in support of each other, magic happens. The Women’s Confidence Collective is a forum where women can come together, speak in confidence, and share experiences while they learn tools to help build self-confidence.

Make new connections, share your story, and build your confidence with the support and guidance of an internationally experienced coach.

This weekly group is perfect for those who want to;

• Meet new people

• Find support and inspiration

• Repair and re-build their confidence

• Adjust to changes in their life

• Reconnect with their inner self

Hosted by author and internationally experienced coach, Jacqui Alder, these FREE sessions are for all women of any age or background. You can find out more about Jacqui via her website: https://www.claritysimplicitysuccess.com/

Sessions are run weekly and are drop in style running from 19 October through to the 23 November. Please register your place via canninglibraries.eventbrite.com, visit us in the library or phone us on 08 6350 7350

Below is an outline of the weekly topics;

1. Understand your self-confidence (19 October) Life is full of surprises; some are positive, and some are not. As our circumstances change, our priorities change, and we do too. All of which can impact our feeling of self-confidence. In this session we’ll discuss what self-confidence is and give you a framework to work with.

2. Value yourself (26 October) Our core values are at the heart of who we are. For women, this is particularly so. However, when applying our values there is one person we commonly neglect. That person is the woman who looks back at us from the mirror. In this session you’ll learn how to build your self -esteem using your values as a guide.

3. Setting Healthy Boundaries (2 November) As women, we’re motivated to do the right thing by others. This usually means putting ourselves last. It is possible to include yourself in your priorities and still fulfill your responsibilities. In this session you’ll learn how to identify your boundaries, when to say yes, and how to say no.

4. Tame your Inner Critic (9 November) We all have an inner voice that guides us. Our inner critic is the unhelpful version, her favourite words are ‘you should’ and ‘you shouldn’t.’ While she might mean well, she works against us – unless we learn how to work with her. In this session we’ll take a look at how to use Jacqui’s NAG framework to neutralise your inner meanie.

5. Using Empowering Language (16 November) Do you apologise or minimise yourself? Words have power. How we speak about ourselves and the words we choose reveal and reinforce our self-judgements (+ve or -ve) They also effect how others respond to us. In this session you’ll discover how your words might be working against you and learn some easy tips to speak more confidently.

6. Overcoming setbacks (23 November) It’s happened to all of us. Feeling stuck or facing a setback is something we’ve all faced. In this session we’ll discuss some practical tips and share lessons from our own experiences.

Swan Song Live Concert: Bad Weather, Jess Jocelyn, Mia June (Midland)

 

Experience an evening of stripped back songs with local performers and some of WA’s best songwriters!

Please note that this is an all ages concert performance. Photographs and videos will be taken of the event.

Experience an evening of stripped back songs with local performers and some of WA’s best songwriters in Old Midland Courthouse. Swan Song is a concert series partnership between City of Swan Libraries and West Australian Music aimed at highlighting some of the best upcoming West Australian Music Talent.

On November 3rd we will welcome Bad Weather, Jess Jocelyn and Mia June to the stage.

Bad Weather may have only been on the scene for the best part of a year but this alt-pop act, led by songwriter and producer Callum Robertson, is already making some serious impressions. Despite being early days, rocking up to a Bad Weather gig in their hometown of Perth means finding a room full of loyal fans passionately singing along to the six singles the act has released in just over 18 months

With influences ranging from Michael Jackson, to M83, to Bon Iver and The 1975, Bad Weather present a sound reminiscent of an 80’s movie soundtrack crossed with indie-emo vocals; a combination that has them pinned as one of the “rising names” of acts in this genre to come out of Australia, according to triple j presenter Dave Ruby-Howe on Twitter.

Bad Weather have just released their huge new tune, ‘Caring Is Cool’ a breakup song with a tender message, delivered via a lush blend of acoustic and electronic hooks. The track is available for streaming across all platforms. Keep an ear and an eye out for their upcoming debut EP…

Jess Jocelyn is the name of the ever-changing solo project of Boorloo-based artist Jess Nyanda Moyle. Born in Hong Kong, raised in Northern Perth (where all the suburbs look the same) the 2nd gen Filipinx/Australian migrant writes stories about home, identity and healing. Influenced by the likes of Mitski, Paul Kelly, Tracey Chapman and Phoebe Bridgers. Jess tells her stories through earnest lyric-led, almost sickeningly catchy folk-pop-rock.

Mia June is a 17 year old singer-songwriter from Perth, and with both her soaring melodies and witty, brutally honest lyricism she’ll have you hanging on to every word, blending folk inspired heartfelt songwriting with an indie rock sound.

Doors open at 5.30 and performances start promptly at 6.00pm.

This performance is made possible by support from Act Belong Commit and West Australian Music.

In accordance with hygiene requirements, social distancing will be maintained throughout this program and hand sanitizing stations and cleaning products will be available for use.

Please book in as spaces are limited. For all inquiries contact Midland Public Library (08) 9267 9020.

From “walking on water’ boardwalks, to a dip in the big blue at Little Parakeet Bay or the Basin, famous shipwrecks, and a little journey of the Islands lighthouses, this one day island adventure is the perfect way to experience the highlights of Rottnest in a bite sized chunk.
Check in with The Hike Collective at The B-Shed ferry terminal in Fremantle and board the fast ferry on our short 30 minute ferry trip to the Island.
When you arrive at Rottnest Island, we start our journey on the Gabbi Karniny Bidi ” Discover the Salt Lakes” with some of the best views on the Island. From Vlamingh Lookout you’ll gain real perspective of what you’ll find beyond the Settlement.
We then head on to Lake Baghdad where we can stop to watch the birds dancing on the Salt Lakes. These lakes have been recognised as Wetlands of National Importance. Head onto the Lakes Boardwalk to experience the illusion of walking on water. The boardwalk safeguards the significant samphire communities below. We detour up to the Wadjemup Lighthouse where we stop for a light refreshment and a moment to enjoy the beautiful view from the highest point on the island, before returning to the trail and heading to the Northern beaches.
As the day warms up, we get to cool down as we head onto Little Parakeet bay. Kick off your shoes and paddle in the calm waters of Little Parakeet Bay in the beautiful clear turquoise waters and then we head onto Geordie Bay, Longreach Bay and to The Basin, one of the Island’s most popular swimming spots.
We finish our hiking tour back at the main settlement, where we will have a beautiful spot reserved for you to enjoy lunch the way you want to before experiencing Rottnest in your unique style for the afternoon.
Tour Inclusions Guided 5km or 12km hike along the Wadjemup Bidi network to explore the lakes and bays of Rottnest Island Ferry tickets from BShed Fremantle to Rottnest return. Island admission fees Reserved area of lunch at Hotel Rottnest to join us after the hike if you wish A festive spirit and opportunity to catch up with all the hikers you have met throughout the year Amazing historical stories and secrets covering local heritage of our fascinating hiking trail An exclusive tour opportunity that can not be experienced with any other operators on Rottnest Island Friendly and knowledgeable, first aid trained tour guides.

Join Nabilla Antipas to learn about using modern cloth nappies in this relaxed, family-friendly workshop. Nabilla’s mission is to get more bums in cloth by simplifying what you need to know to get started.

• Demonstration of different styles and how to fit them

• Easy washing and care

• Daycare tips, nappy libraries, and troubleshooting

You’ll get to touch and play with samples and ask all the questions you have getting honest answers from a mum who has used cloth with her kids from birth.

Date:Saturday 6 November  2021

Time:10am – 11:30am

Venue: CREEC, Cnr Kent St and Queens Park Rd, Wilson

Street Meet: Bushfire Ready Group (Forrestfield)

 

Are you Bushfire Ready? Come along to meet our Bushfire Ready Group to learn about keeping safe in this area. It is imperative the community and individual households are bushfire aware and know what to do.

Do you live near this area? 🏡🙋♀

The City of Kalamunda is uniquely placed in the Darling Ranges, with the region being renowned for its beautiful Jarrah and Marri forests, walking trails and native flora and fauna. The natural beauty of the region however, significantly increases the area’s risk to bushfire. Bushfires have the capacity to strike without warning and provided with the right environmental conditions, can quickly exceed firefighting resources, devastating community, properties, and infrastructure, while posing great risk to the loss of human life. It is for this reason, that it is imperative that both the wider community and individual households are supported in engaged in bushfire preparedness, awareness and survival planning. If you’ve not yet joined your local Bushfire Ready Group we encourage you to do so! Bushfire Ready is a local community action program aimed at encouraging local residents to work together in preparing and protecting their families and properties against bushfires. The benefits of forming a Bushfire Ready group include: Come along to meet our Bushfire Ready Group to learn about keeping safe in this area. Bushfire Ready is a community driven program established by DFES in collaboration with local government to increase the resilience of the community to bushfire risk. The benefits of forming a Bushfire Ready group include:

  • 🔥 Increasing your understanding of bushfire risk around homes, streets and the immediate surrounding bush land in your area
  • 🔥 Support for developing your own Bushfire Survival Plan
  • 🔥 Opportunities for meeting neighbours to develop support networks that may be needed in a bushfire emergency
  • 🔥 Learning about bushfire behaviour
  • 🔥 Reducing the cost that bushfire has on life, property and the environment
  • 🔥 Developing realistic expectations of the capabilities and limits of emergency services during a bushfire
  • 🔥 Finding out where and how to access information during a bush fire

How can you get involved in your local Bushfire Ready group?

Cast Day Out! Kayaking in South Perth

 

Kayaking Day

November is a great time of the year to make a stop and appreciate the beautiful nature around us. You are invited to come meet the team and cast that make Teatro Latinx possible. This kayaking day is organized by Teatro Latinx in collaboration with the Metropolitan Migrant Resource Centre.

We will meet at the Funcats kayaking booth near Coode street jetty on the South Perth foreshore. Please meet us there no later than 8:45am to get all equipment sorted before we start. Once everyone has arrived we run through a short safety briefing, which covers what to do in any sort of emergency. We also cover a short lesson on how to paddle and the best places to paddle for the weather conditions on the day.

Things to consider for your safety:

  • Prior to heading out everyone is fitted with life jackets, which are sized from children through to adults. The life jackets are compulsory.
  • There is no problem if non-swimmers are heading out, as the kayaks are very stable so there is very little chance of them tipping over.
  • We will monitor everyone whilst they are on the water and save a rescue boat available at all times for the small chance that anyone should need assistance.
  • Be aware that you will definitely get wet! The kayaks are ‘sit on top’, so water comes in from the self draining deck and from the paddle.

Remember to bring:

  • A snack to share
  • A litre of drinking water
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen

See you there!
