Shift Women’s Healing Resources

Women have borne the greater burden of managing the stresses of pandemic life at home and at work, and women are burning out in record numbers, eroding our mental and physical health, as well as our careers.

At Shift, women’s empowerment is one of our core impact areas, and we are committed to helping create a world that truly works for all women. 

So we’ve put together a number of healing resources from our archives that we are happy to offer at no cost, in service to women everywhere. Please feel free to share these resources far and wide, to anyone who might benefit. 

You’ll find those resources below.

Our Shift community is filled with creative visionaries — and we encourage you to join us in mounting a wave of healing support for women around the globe. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for… and our time is now. Let’s be the change — together.
