What is the mission of Global Sisterhood?

Category: What is Global Sisterhood?

We are a movement of Sister Circles in over 100 countries that gather every new moon around a theme of transformation. Our mission is to bring women together in a unified global conversation as we break molds of competition and replace them with sisterhood. We are a grassroots movement — we provide resources to women so they can become facilitators and in doing so, they free their voice and become leaders in their communities, uplifting other women to do the same.
 

I'm a man, how can I support?

Category: What is Global Sisterhood?

Thank you so much for your passion and for wanting to join the movement. We welcome men and, in fact, we need the support of men for our movement to grow exponentially!

There are different ways you can support, to whatever degree or capacity you feel called.

-Share Global Sisterhood's mission with women in your life. Here is a video to get started. You can do this through conversation, sharing on social media, or signing up for our newsletter and then choosing to forward that to women in your life who you feel would benefit from the messages. Send them to our website to find a women's circle near them, or receive free resources to learn how to facilitate one in their own neighborhood!

-Let women know about our monthly new moon circles. Direct them to our website where they can sign up to join a circle or create one.

On our Facebook group and platform, we maintain membership for female-identified humans, for safety in sharing. However, we are open to ideas on how you would like to participate so we can keep them in mind as we develop more programs in the future! It is paramount to us to build out that part of the mission over time—conscious masculinity, healed and whole men, are just as important as conscious, healed and whole women.

Can you hold a circle online?

Category: Facilitating A Sister Circle

Yes! At Global Sisterhood we host virtual circles all the time.The process is quite similar to leading a regular circle. Zoom, Skype or Google Hangouts are great platforms to use.

Some tips:
Once everyone has joined the video call, rather than jumping right in, simply ask everyone to close their eyes and lead them through a presencing meditation to set the space.

Invite them to envision that they are in a circle with candles in the center (describe the space for them in beautifying but concise detail). Then set the guidelines of a safe space.From here, simply share about the monthly theme, how you relate to it, and invite some questions and exercises. 
Follow this with an organized sharing. Perhaps set a timer for each share. At some point in the session, lead the Heart Meditation.

At the end of it have each woman set their new moon intentions and share them with the group in one sentence.

You can do sharing a couple of times, one before the ritual and one after, and you can throw in any activity of your own inspiration.

At the end, guide the women back into the same visualization as before and have everyone imagine blowing out the candle at the end.  Happy circling!

Where do I find support in facilitating a circle?

Our mission is to support you in becoming a leader. Our resources, facilitator trainings and groups are all intended to help you each step of the way.

Our best resource is the HerCIRCLE Facebook group facilitators from around the world. You would need to purchase HerCIRCLE if you would like access. Your support of our products keeps our mission alive.

Should I charge for my circle?

Category: Facilitating A Sister Circle

At our local circle we ask for a $20 donation, which goes toward costs we incur. Some women choose to charge a fee, or ask for a donation to cover the cost of supplies and space rental.

This is a personal decision, and depends on what feels right to you regarding your community of women and your need for support to make the group sustainable. Some women who host at their homes choose not to charge.

When are the monthly resources posted?

Category: HerCIRCLE

The new moon resources will be posted to your account (in the "Resources" section) two weeks before each month’s new moon to allow our members plenty of time to integrate the theme and concepts for personal and circle use. (Hint: you can take note of each month’s new moon with the lunar calendar we’ll send you).

What’s the difference between the free membership and HerCIRCLE?

Category: HerCIRCLE

At Global Sisterhood we have sisters from over 100 countries in all parts of the world. Not all the women in Global Sisterhood are able to afford the cost of our membership and we would like to make it as accessible as possible. We believe that healing and transformation should be available to all who seek it. At Global Sisterhood, we charge for some of our products to allow us to gift our work to other women who cannot afford it. By purchasing any of our products, you are helping keep our work alive.

How can I notify my friends about my upcoming circle?
