About The Organizer

Helen Mantell, Tiffany Crosara, Helen Chapman, Judith Kingdon

We are a group of women who work in the field of personal empowerment and we believe passionately in the ability of the human spirit to bring challenging and traumatic issues into the light to be healed. What better way to bring awareness of the issue of Domestic Violence and Abuse than to dance, drum and walk on fire?

The idea for this event was proposed by Helen Mantell who is a survivor of Domestic Abuse and the fabulous team of ladies got together to make it happen! We've reserved twenty free spaces for Domestic Violence survivors to mark an empowering rite of passage to a life free from abuse. All proceeds after expenses will be split between four charities working with survivors of DV and their families.
