What a Women’s Circle Is Not
Circle is not about seclusion. Circle is powerful because it is creates an inclusive community. Women of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs are welcome.
Circle is not a space for discussing politics or opinions. Circle is powerful because we use the “talking stick” model of sharing. This means that every woman has the same amount of time to speak, usually 3 minutes. After speaking, there is no discussion, comment or judgement. Rather, each woman is thanked and is beamed energy for her contribution. In this way, she gains confidence.
Circle is not therapy. Circle is not about needing to fix something. Circle is powerful because, when in Circle, every woman is perfect as she is, wherever she is on her journey.
Circle is not necessarily always easy. The power of Circle is that when our wounds come to the surface, we can assist in the healing. When our shadows emerge, we have the collective courage to face them.
Circle is not a catwalk. Circle is where we can take off our mask. The power of Circle is that we can show up exactly as we are: tired, stressed, emotional, vulnerable, with migraines and varicose veins… through the connection, we emerge joyful, gorgeous and fabulous!
Circle is not a once-and-done. The power of Circle expands exponentially through our commitment to show up and be present and build community.
When we come together in Circle, we create an intentional space wherein we can reveal ourselves in all the facets of our being, where we can celebrate our divine feminine essence, and where we can incubate our collective power.
