What happens to our little boys when they hear things like, “be a man” or “boys don’t cry” or “suck it up”? How can we teach our boys to embrace their vulnerability and humanity…giving them a safe space to drop the mask and share their truth. Join Amy with a powerful interview with Ever Forward Club’s Founder, Ashanti Branch, whose “Taking Off the Mask” workshop is changing lives around the globe. Ashanti is also featured in The Representation Project’s profound Movie, The Mask You Live In and he just launched a brand new campaign: #100kMasks.
I recently took my 9 1/2 year old daughter, Annabella, to her very first weekend women’s retreat.

It was amazing to watch Annabella wake up to the wonder of being a woman and the power of sisterhood. Tune in for the goodness!
