Circles

 

Open Women's Circles

Something incredible happens when women gather together! If you are craving a place to be yourself and find connection within a community, then this women's circle is for you. It is a place where you can break free from the craziness of life, it is a place to stop and rest and gently catch your breath and refocus. Being in circle offers an opportunity to have authentic conversations about what you are going through in your life without facing judgment or advice. It is a safe space where everyone has an equal voice and equal opportunity to share, grow, have fun, be vulnerable and find connection. Each month we explore a different topic.

These circles allow girls to share honestly about their experiences, laugh with peers and explore the challenges of growing up in our modern era. Sitting in circle provides girls a chance to explore personal growth, confront fears, engage in empowerment-based discussions, connect with others and feel the support and trust of a community. Laughter, silliness and joy encouraged! Circles are a safe, judgment-free space where everyone is honored and celebrated for being exactly as they are.
