Irma will lead "The Mountaintop Experience," a rites of passage series designed for mature women. As a Germantown community leader and storyteller for over 20 years she will facilitate this workshop helping to alter the way society portrays the menopausal period of women's lives. She will empower women through identifying later life's gifts, strengths, wisdom, and develop new rituals, by using storytelling, music, art and expressive crafts.
