A women’s circle is a safe and sacred space for women to come together, use their voices, be heard and be seen. Women throughout history have gathered in circles to empower each other and share wisdom. These affirming community gatherings help women get in touch with their feminine strength and turn up their positive vibration. With politics dividing us further every day, women need community more than ever.
The History of Woman' Circles
There is evidence of spiritual ritual gatherings occurring possibly as early as 300,000 years ago. Back when we lived in Tribes or Communities both men and women had these Circles to connect through ritual, story-telling, dance and music. In ancient times, both men and women shared stories around the fire, and, in fact, they still do in indigenous tribes around the world.
These meetings provide meaning and direction in life. Gathering in circle is a vital element in human life. More and more women are discovering its power for healing, meaning making and enriching communications.
What is a Women’s Circle?
There is something profoundly powerful in a group of women sitting in a circle. When we meet in circle (even now it is in a virtual circle) we join to hold everyone in sacred space and purpose. Women are naturally more oriented to relationships & connection. Conversational circles are purposeful opportunities for women to gather and talk about topics that are important and meaningful. They are a space where women can encourage, challenge and support each other. It’s a way to amplify the power of Women’s leadership and sisterhood.
In a nutshell a Women’s Circle is: – A sacred space honoring the uniqueness of each individual – Everyone is equal – It’s a safe space where you can speak from your heart – Listening is directed to both individuals who are speaking and the themes, connections, wisdom & energy that is emerging within the context created – It’s a container that can hold diverse perspectives – It’s a space for you to tell your stories, talk about your roles, gifts, concerns & visions. – It’s a space for you to create the future you desire
