The Empowered Women's Circle
Dr. Hansen's personal invitation:
EWC is a Circle that welcomes and celebrates women for their wholeness, authenticity, bigness, brilliance and beauty (even when women may need help seeing this through the eyes of other women)
There are many communities but only ONE led by an Obstetrician & Gynecologist who understands women's deepest intimate desires and shares resources and results
Dr. Hansen warmly invites you into her inner circle where conversations and connections create the space for honest answers about topics that no one wants to discuss but everyone needs to know
Learn about ways to strength your body, calm your mind, soothe your soul and, ultimately, attune to your body's wisdom
A woman's body is her gateway to wholistic health, hormone balance, deeper personal intuitive knowing and a wellspring of energy, pleasure and joy - ALL sourced from within
EWC in 2024
Honoring the Rhythms and Cycles of Life
Starting January 18, 2024

“We can relax and relate to life with faithful knowing that if we cease to act, life itself will not cease, it may, in fact, grow full” - Sarah Blondin
You are so busy - why join now?
Women don't need more to do - we need to do things differently
You can do anything - but you can't do everything
Being empowered means knowing yourself well enough that you live fiercely-focused on what matters most (and bold enough to say 'no')
Your creativity, innovation and productivity are all tied to your health
Burnout and stress related diseases are on the rise for women and are directly related happiness, life-satisfaction, relationship intimacy and your sense of joy and fulfillment at work and home
Your health and happiness are in your hands! (And you'll have a doctor to guide your steps)
Yours is a very personal journey, your story is your own - but you can't do it all alone
The Empowered Women's Circle is a community of women leaning in, lifting up and learning to love life in all it's imperfection

Women are balancing so much right now...
We are the center of our families.
We are working towards or at the height of our professional careers.
We are holding the 'bigness' of what's going on in the world.

tired and overwhelmed
alone and isolated
disconnected from yourself

a longing for things to be different
