The evening will begin with a guided arrival using meditation or mantra to bring clarity to our intentions for the evening. I will then open the circle with a theme. The themes of the Women’s Circle are thoughtfully selected to arouse and nurture (re)connection with ourselves and the world around us. They consist of topics that we may, on some level, have a deep yearning to delve into, subjects that we may have somehow been conditioned to feel disempowered to discuss. Each woman will have the time and space to contemplate and share as much or as little as she would like to about the theme – her feelings about it, her experience of it, her relationship with it. As we go around the circle, we will practise giving and receiving the gift of holding space for each woman as she finds her voice. To aid digestion of the evening’s conversation, you may be invited to experience evocative journaling, movement or partner exercises that resonate with the theme of the circle. Time will be allowed for reflection and integration, and the circle will conclude with a closing ritual to honour the energy of the women that have shown up.
