Online Workshops

Hello! My name is Nicole Bensen; I am the founder of Tentacles and Tea, and I'm so happy you've stopped by. Tentacles and Tea was created to provide global, wellbeing retreats for womxn. Due to COVID-19 I'm now offering online workshops for individuals and corporations alike. With a mix of reflection, science, and community I equip corporate employees with research-backed happiness and wellbeing tools that are simple to execute and provide powerful results.

"Next Level You" is my signature 6-week, online workshop. We cover research on what really makes us happy (it's often not what you think), and practice simple, actionable tools in individual and group exercises to increase happiness and become more resilient, confident and calm. The final 2020 session starts on November 10th, and you can sign up here.

You will:

- Learn about the common Imposter Syndrome experience and how to overcome it

- Practice ways to stop overthinking

- Uncover core beliefs that are holding you back from achieving goals

- Dig into your values and practice how to feel worthy beyond external validation

- Walk away with (so many) tools that can change your life, and have the support of a community of like-minded, open-hearted womxn

For groups/corporations, please contact me to talk about a private workshop for your organization. In addition to "Next Level You," companies have benefitted from 75-minute workshops on topics including happiness, self-compassion and self-promotion. Workshops include a presentation, workbook and interactive practices.
