About the speaker

Jess Staskiewicz considers herself a recovering psychologist. She’s a yogamama, spiritual seeker, and the founder and facilitator of Dorothy Way, a local business that invites women to go deeper, and connect with their true selves. She believes in the inherent power and unique purpose of every individual and is dedicated to enabling others to shine.

She is an independent mother to one human baby and one fur baby, a lover of the cycle and flow of nature, losing herself in a book, and deep conversations.

Please contact us at if you have any questions.


If it’s free, do I need to register?

Yep! (Please.) Because we need to allocate you some coffee and pastries, and imagine missing out on those…

If you just turn up on the morning, we can’t guarantee you a seat/croissant. So please help a girl out and register.

Do I need to bring anything?

A mug or KeepCup for your coffee, and an open mind! And maybe a notebook if you like.

How long does it go for?

All our events are the same format – doors open at 7.30am, the talk starts at 8.00am and finishes (as much as possible) at 8.30am. Doors will open after the talk, and you’re welcome to stay for another coffee and a chat until 9.00am or so.

All events will be on a Friday morning. We don’t currently have plans for night-time or weekend events, but you never know…

Can I bring my little one?

Absolutely! Everyone is welcome!

If they’re going to go crazy on the croissants, let us know and we’ll put them down as an extra person ;)

What if I miss out on tickets?

We use a waitlist for registrations and release any extra tickets as they become available via a lottery. We’ll send you an email if your name comes up, and priority is given to those who get stuck on a waitlist for 2-3 months.

If you can’t attend, please, please, please release your ticket ASAP so someone else can join us. Please don’t register if you don’t think you’ll actually attend. We will eventually have to take you off the invite list if you regularly don’t show up for events, just to make it fair for those who regularly miss out.
