Women’s Brainstorming Group Relies on the Power of Freely Offered Ideas

By Susan Page

Do you have a dilemma or problem nagging away at you? Are you trying to make a difficult decision? Would you like support for a transition you are making? Are you looking to network with interesting women?

The San Miguel Brain Exchange uses a light structure to assist any woman who comes to the group with a challenge, a problem, a need for inspiration or ideas, or a warm embrace. Issues range from deeply personal needs to marketing or business ideas, and everything in between. Brainstorming is different from discussion. The goal is not to evaluate or discuss each idea that is suggested, but rather to generate as many different ideas as we possibly can. Some will be new and exciting for the person with the challenge; some will be impractical or already attempted. None of that matters because every idea will potentially trigger another idea in someone else, and that may be the idea that is magic for the person asking the question. The process is fun, energizing, and amazingly productive.

When you state your question out loud in this public setting, you are already taking a step toward a solution. You have now clearly stated—to yourself and to others—that you want to move forward. It is that clear request that enables the universe to support you in ways you cannot imagine when you are afraid to ask. All women agree to keep everything that goes on inside the circle totally confidential.

The collective wisdom—and humor—of women focusing their energy on one person and one issue is powerful and productive.

“I always go away feeling embraced and supported, whether or not I asked for help this time,” said a veteran Brain Exchanger. “I love that we laugh so much,” said another. “Some people are so clever.”

The drop-in group meets once a month with both regulars and new attendees each time. Don’t wait until you need an idea or have a problem. Contributing ideas to others is definitely half of the fun and satisfaction. Plus, there’s the benefit of getting to network and meet new women who might end up being key people in your life.

Under the leadership of Susan Page and Sarah Powers, the Brain Exchange’s meetings always take place the second Wednesday of each month—this month on August 14—from 3 to 5pm,  at the LifePath Center, Rinconada de la Aldea 29. On February, April, and May, we don’t meet.

No reservation is needed. However, as a courtesy to all the women who attend, we ask that you plan to stay for the entire meeting. 50 pesos covers the cost of renting the room. To find us, enter the Aldea arch on Zacateros. Follow the walking path on your right to the Lifepath Center.
