Gisèle, your name is just as mysterious to pronounce as is your clothing.

Gisèle, your name is just as mysterious to pronounce as is your clothing. You were always there with a soft energy, never obtrusive but inviting, with wisdom and femininity. – M

Proud of myself! I stay in touch, even when it gets hard, and do not avoid a confrontation. I dare to say more, dare to show myself. It was instructive to experience and discover together with you. – V

Just when I seemed to disappear into an immense sadness, I always found the loving eyes of Francis, allowing for the old wounds to heal. – M

Being vulnerable also means: “Can I take a peek in your pants?” (joke) I have opened up, showed myself completely without having prepared for it. I have felt received by other ‘vulnerable’ women. Grateful and inspired I continue my path; touched. – J

Being ‘vulnerable’ and being ‘touched’ means to me ‘Really being allowed to Be and to be real.’ I want to thank you Francis and Gisèle for this pleasant week during which my confidence to really be has been given a chance to grow. – C

Dear Gisèle and Francis. Thank you for your Blessing of Love and the atmosphere you created. Much has been released, walls have been discovered and are starting to crumble. Recognition, Acknowledgement, Healing. – J

Such wealth! I am so happy to have come yet a few steps closer to myself. I have enjoyed my ‘loving’ woman so much, my body the way it looks now. I am most grateful. – I

Healing. ‘Vulnerable.’ I am my own. Do not need to give myself away. Light and loving, confidentally going further, grateful. – T

Being vulnerable, being touched can have many shapes, sounds and colours. Allowing myself completely, loving myself the way I am. To be able to explore all aspects, without my safe ‘home’. Energy can flow again. Thank you Francis and Gisèle for this special experience, for your guidance, your purgation and attention, which to me probably is the most beautiful gift. Thanks as well to all the lovely women in the circle for sharing, laughing and crying together and being connected. – L

Gisèle, Francis and fellow ‘vulnerable women’, thank you for the rich experiences, the intense moments of being together, the open hands and hearts, the tears… Thank you for every fragment, to eventually be allowed to fully be! – V

Inexpressible gratitude for your ‘being’ present with my rediscovering everything that is already inside of me. – A

Right after I entered the hall I feel and know again… Being a woman, feeling like a woman, moving softly towards a place where I want to be; moved. Thank you, then and now. It bubbles, glitters, shines and shimmers. I think I can show my inside to the outside world as well now. I pass it on! – S

The ‘happy howlers’! What university doesn’t teach you, you will learn here! – E’

Open with reservation, curiosity and stomachache. It brought me buckets full of golden fish with softness. A gift to myself: 50 years old and a new journey begins. – M

Six days of space for all our love, pain, tenderness, fire, joy, sadness, solidarity. Six days of time to share, to dance, to spoil, to cry, to laugh and… most of all to fully be a woman between other women. Thank you sweet women, – J

Thank you for this beautiful gift. It has reopened my heart. In complete safety, I was able to share my ‘being’ with these women. I could be who I was and was accepted without judgement and with respect. I was amazed and felt powerful about being able to share my openness at the end of the course, even with the other people at Préau who were not in the ‘Vulnerable Woman’ group. I thank you, big hug.
