Deeper connections, purposeful conversations, and the power to ignite your dreams into motion.  You can expect to make profound changes when committed to the processes of Women Connected Circles.  

I invite you to find out just how good you can stand it!

Why Circles

Our society has lost the art of teaching young women to see, explore, and maintain their greatness and uniqueness. Instead, we fall into competing, striving for perfection (and, of course, failing). We fail to teach young girls the many changes they can expect over time as they mature, have children, and grow into elderhood and the value and contribution of these stages.

Instead, women are taught to look to societal norms for behaving and what they should pursue.  We expect the external world to give meaning to our lives through accomplishments and acquisitions.

The Circle is a collaborative conversational model.  We share and witness stories of great heart.

The Circle is a practice of reestablishing social partnerships and creating a world where collaboration informs and inspires the best in us.

The Circle is a social container where people’s most extraordinary clarity and most profound confusion show up.  Every person brings an energetic presence to the Circle as well as a verbal contribution.

Circle also prepares us to maintain calm and self-organization in times of transition, crises, and social change.

Circle provides a way for women to understand their drive for increased wholeness and trust the structure to hold them as they speak about what’s happening in moments of distress.

Circle creates the container to do the work of releasing our patterns and accessing our visionary potentials.

The Circle Structure

The Circle is a heart-held space. It has been the structure for women’s gatherings throughout time. It encourages inclusiveness, belonging, and trust-building. This most ancient social process welcomes everyone to equal participation. Women from all walks of life, all generations, and all cultures can participate in the same program. Their voices and the value of their contribution have intrinsic value and are not measured by hierarchy or assigned power.
