Saboteurs Training with Firefly Guide Jane | In-Person

WHERE: Gilda’s Clubhouse | 10560 W Wayzata Blvd, Minnetonka, MN 55305

Click HERE to RSVP for 5/24 Training

Jane is a Firefly Sisterhood Guide who will be sharing some great insight on “Saboteurs”.  We all have “saboteurs” — defense mechanisms we developed to ensure our needs for autonomy, safety, and belonging are met. As a guide, knowing which saboteur you default to can provide insights into your own cancer journey, as well as how your Firefly Sisters might best shine or get stuck. In this session, you’ll take a quick assessment to find out your top saboteurs (bring your phone or another device). We’ll play “Saboteur Theater” to understand how they interact. And, we’ll explore how unearthing the lies our saboteurs tell us can improve self-care and care of others..
If you would like to join this training via zoom, please email Melissa

This year our theme for our Firefly Summer Social is Empathy in Action.  The work you do as Peer Mentor Guides is truly Empathy in Action, so we want to focus on this for our Summer Social service project this year. This is an annual event for active Guides and Support Seekers of the Firefly Sisterhood Program, and we would love it if you would join us to honor the women in our program.

Please join us to assemble Sisterhood Shine Bags, aka Chemo Bags.  We will be putting together Sisterhood Shine Bags filled with snacks, hand sanitizer, Chapstick, candy, and a handwritten personal note.  See the details below and watch your inbox for a sign-up coming at the end of May.
