Marissa ‘Riss’ Treichel loves to make sure exploring serious things has some fun elements.

Women can tend to doubt their own opinion – that’s the opinion of Marissa ‘Riss’ Treichel  who is running a free seminar for women this Thursday. ‘We second-guess ourselves, and question whether what we want to say is valid. Words can get stuck in our throat.’

Treichel, better known as the Cassettes flash mob mumma, says women have great things to say. ‘In 2016, baby boomer women gave 89 per cent more to charity than men their age. Women in the top 25 per cent permanent income gave 156 per cent more than men in the same category. Our ideas, feelings, thoughts and needs are valid, and hugely benefit others – if only we can get the words out!’

Treichel says the more women learn to trust themselves, speak, (and be heard – this is a two-way street) the more we change the world. ‘And it does start in our own homes and personal relationships. These dynamics ripple out into the world: this is literally what the fabric of society is made of. ‘We may think it’s easier not to say anything, and to “make do”, or worse, to “just let it go”, but having low expectations is not the answer to creating beautiful and fulfilling relationships.’

The seminar entitled How to Expand your Sparkle in your Relationship is free and has an open invitation to join Riss in what she says is a nurturing, fun and free group class, to help you create the relationships you want.

Quality of Relationship Assessment

During the event you can explore the Quality of Relationship Assessment. ‘This is a very powerful tool to help students create what they really want and deserve in their own relationship.

‘Positive change begins with being willing to see how things really are. Rather than pretending everything is fine, or that this is as good as it’s gonna get or can be. And the most exciting part of the assessment, is that each woman’s own opinion is what matters. They are deciding for themselves, what is important for them and how satisfied they are in each area of their relationship.

Treichel says that when we acknowledge how things really are, and compare that to how we want things to be, we’re compelled to take action. ‘It’s scary, exciting, and awesome. That’s why I also have 80s dancing, and blessings and strengths activity, to ease us in and out of the deep radical work.

‘I love using creativity in an artistic and life-changing sense – it’s our most brilliant tool as humans.’
