How Exploring the Feminine Turned My Wounds into Strengths | Nicole Sorochan | TEDxVictoria

11/12/2015 15:01:28

Often the only woman in the boardroom, filmmaker and transmedia expert Nicole Sorochan's latest project, AmplifyHER, explores the feminine and what it has to offer the world – and also helped her to discover old wounds and turn them into strengths.

An expert filmmaker and multi-channel conversationalist, Nicole Sorochan leads One Net Labs, a new interactive division that builds transmedia products for the entertainment industry. Her passion project, a transmedia experiment called Hipsterbait.com, recently took 1st place and 10K in funding at the prestigious international Merging Media Conference.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Older women know learn this - all the women in this collaboration were youngish ... there still needs to be more mentoring , from the mother, the crone, elders - many western cultures are ageist and young women are missing out from generations of their ancestors who not only pass on the wounds but also wisdom. We all benefit from collaboration where the goal is greater than ourselves - then ego and competition evaporate. There are many instances where women do come together in mutual support.

the day women will heal that one and come together not only horizontally but vertically with recovery of mentoring relationships from the youngest to the oldest, that will create the conditions for a true democracy to arise where a council of grandmothers , true elders will have the final say on any political decisions. For this to occur women will need to recover their connection with their fundamental mother: Nature. Men will be kept in check in a loving way from going crazy and destructive of both women and nature.Foraging cultures deeply connected to wild nature consider women as more powerful than men.
