“A circle of women may be the most powerful force known to humanity. If you have one, embrace it. If you need one, seek it. If you find one, for the love of all that is good and holy, dive in. Hold on. Love it up. Get naked. Let them see you. Let them hold you. Let your reluctant tears fall. Let yourself rise fierce and love gentle. You will be changed. The very fabric of your being will be altered.” – Jeanette LeBlanc
Magic happens when women gather in circle, to share what’s really going on inside their hearts. When a woman is given the permission and invitation to open up, dig deep, and courageously share her truth with a group of women–many who she may not know at all–she taps into a wellspring of wisdom inside of herself. Her heart becomes lighter and fuller at the same time. She feels relief as the fear that she has long held close begins to release through her breaths, sighs, and yes, maybe even her tears. This may be the first time in her life she has felt truly seen or heard–without judgement–by other women.
Surrounded by the loving attention and trusting presence of your sisters, you are given the golden key to unlock your own wisdom. Women come to circle for so many reasons: to heal, to grow, to learn who they are, to feel a part of something bigger, to find true friendships, to release self-judgement. No matter what you’re seeking, you will be offered precious gems, and if you open yourself up to receive them, you will be forever changed–in the best ways!
“Surrender, humility, and vulnerability are signs of strength. This is the power of the feminine. This is the power that lives inside of you.” Torie Feldman
Together we create this sacred container. We gather together to share our hearts and bring our intentions into focus. When two or more are gathered…the intentions are radically magnified and enhanced. We become the lightworkers, the healers that the world is needing. Each woman remembers that she holds a valuable place in the circle, that her voice is powerful when she speaks the truth of her heart.
You learn to see–with compassionate eyes–your own “stuff” and take responsibility for it. Whatever it is you’re working on, no matter how dark or scary, you are invited to bring it into the circle. We have compassion for ourselves and for one another. We honor the process of each sister present, and we trust in her wisdom and ability to navigate her own life.
You become the speaker and the listener, the wise woman and the little girl, the leader and the follower, the healer and the healed. With an increased capacity to feel all that you are, you begin to trust in your capacity to face any situation life presents, knowing you have the support of your sisters. You sense that you already are whole.
We believe that women gathering in circles will lead to each woman’s remembrance of her beauty, her wisdom, her POWER, and her worth, and that THIS is how our world heals.
