Join your awesome fellow TA sisters as we engage in lively discussions, insightful workshops and opportunities for self-care.  A few of this year’s highlights include these events:

Tour the Egyptian Museum in San Jose – the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on exhibit in western North America.  (Friday, April 22 at 4pm, leave hotel 3:30)

Be weird, be random, be who you are, because you never know who’d love the person you hide. Come experience Emmy’s energy-building icebreakers, then chill as we tour some perverse ideas of Taiwanese sweets —it’s not what you think, but hopefully all fun and games! Engage for your chance to win prizes. (Friday April 22, after dinner)

Resilience – Learn about easy, readily applicable ways to minimize stress, optimize effectiveness, and enhance overall life satisfaction.  In this workshop, Kathy shares data-driven results from experts who use scientific methods. Learn the 7 habits of highly resilient people, and let your personal bulls-eye activity help you assess your situation. (Saturday, April 23)

Body Image – join your funny, charismatic, and ridiculously wise sisters (such as Sophia, who aspires to be the first Surgeon General NOT to be fired for saying the word “masturbation”), as we talk about what could be the villains in contributing to how we feel about ourselves, and simple things we can do to become better sheros to ourselves, to all sisters of any age/race/creed/culture, and to our society.  (Sunday April 24)
