Embracing Women's Potential Transformative Learning Centre
for Women's Education, Connection, Collaboration, Transformation
Embracing Women’s Potential Transformative Learning Centre (EWP-TLC) for women was established in 2009 by Tisiola Lear, as the first initiative of its kind in Bowral, NSW. EWP-TLC strives to provide women of all backgrounds and ages with a harmonious and inspiring safe space, and qualitative and affordable educational programs focused on personal development, health and wellbeing, career and contribution, social and relational health, and spiritual awakening and growth.
EWP-TLC has presented over 100 focus groups, 80 seminars, 20 workshops, 10 retreats, and 240 social events to a community of over 300 women in the Southern Highlands region and beyond. EWP-TLC has additionally supported over 50 private clients between the ages of 4 and 80 to make profound and positive healthy changes in their lives. Most recently, Tisiola’s work has gained international support, including from Dr Jean Houston, world-renowned author and political leadership advisor and Chancellor at Meridian University, USA.
EWP-TLC is founded on the following Human Rights Principles:
Article #1: To be Free and Equal – “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.”
Article #26: Right to Education – “You have the right to school, to continue your studies as far as you wish and to learn regardless of race, religion or country of origin…Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.”
Article #27: Right to Take Part in Cultural, Artistic and Scientific Life – “Everyone has the right to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.”
Article #29: Duty to Your Community – “Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of their personality is possible.”
Led by a core team of five women, EWP-TLC is committed to providing:
A safe space for authentic connection and true belonging
Different ways to connect, learn, share, develop, transform and have fun
Psychological, emotional, spiritual and social support
A ripple effect that causes lasting positive changes
EWP-TLC advocates for addressing issues that affect women's potential and which cause inequality, by providing opportunities for women to rise and shine through affordable quality education programs, and sustainable and meaningful connections.
EWP-TLC also promotes unity of diversity, and believes that in order to create a flourishing community, all women's voices are needed: we prosper when we collaborate, support and empower each woman’s unique contributions, strengths and talents.
