Inviting all women, in particular my Black sisters, to take up space and just be. An invitation to talk about what we think about, but rarely speak about. Conversations about spirituality, relationships, the “ism’s,” sex, mental wellbeing, secrets and feelings that we stuffed. We will celebrate! You will laugh, cry, be pissed, disagree, and begin to count yourself in where you’ve been counted out. Lisa Lackey, therapist, consultant and chief conversation starter and her guests will challenge you to keep the conversation going.

Think of Insideout Conversations as brunch with your main girls right in the middle of the week.

After spending so many years refining my “no”, and even getting to the place of not feeling guilty about saying no, I was interrupted by this three letter word; yes.  

I was trying to figure something out related to one of our adult children, to the point of overwhelm and not any closer to an answer.  When out of left field came the nudge to say YES to all that was and was not happening.

This seemed crazy, and after much push back, I found myself saying Yes, yes to yes, the more I spoke these words, the lighter I felt.  At some point, probably after my resistance melted more and more, I realized that I was saying yes to something greater than the something I was trying to figure out. I was saying yes to the best for me, the best of me, and the best outcome for all concerned.

You will be asked to look at some of the places your definitive no, may need to consider an exuberant yes. We’ll look at the defensive posture of no, and how it can block us from who we desire to be. We will look at the stagnancy that is, at times the response to our “no”.  

Does any of this mean “no” is not that best response at times, no, not at all. It means that if our “no” is in any way born out of self imposed limitations, it is time to practice YES, in its place.
