E.D.E.N. 2016

Following on from the success of E.D.E.N. Conference 2014 and 2015, we’re back with another fantastic event for you. It is one of the most inspiring local events for women; and men who celebrate them; from all walks of life, no matter your age, background or education.

E.D.E.N. is a non-religious fundraising community event. We welcome people off all faiths and none.

Inspiring speakers

Inspiring female speakers who will share their stories and insights on the journeys which led them to transform their lives. All our speakers are REAL women from your community. Why? We often look for inspiration in magazines or on TV, yet forget about the amazing women who live in our community. These women experience similar challenges as we do and what is so about them living in our community is the presence of reality. If they can do it, you can too! If they can live the life that inspires them, you can too!



Discover, learn & share with our fun workshops

Workshops which will support you to make your own transformation, or at the very least help you to think about the changes and improvements you’d like to make to your life; with some practical insights as to how you might go about this. This year we are here with some hot and inspiring topics – connect with your inner Goddess, connect with your passions and find the power of your voice!
