Description: “Women’s circles form one at a time. Each circle expands the experience of being in one to more women. Each woman in every circle who is changed by it takes this experience into her world of relationships. Until, on one fine day, a new circle will form, and it will be the millionth circle – the one that tips the scales – and brings us into the post-patriarchal human era.”
~ Jean Shinoda Bolen
We have become a world of people who believe all of us are separate and disconnected from one another, including the natural world. Sacred circles can make a difference in the world, moving us from separation to connection. If we participate and practice the guidelines of a circle or sacred group the ripple effect is put into play. We create a momentum - connect to one another in a deeper way, lead a more meaningful life and then make a difference – first to our families, then to friends. The world changes as a result. Humanity benefits from the release of fear and separation, and moves toward hope, oneness and love.
It is time for circles to expand and tip those scales. My diverse and extensive training in circle participation and leadership for eighteen years has led me to offer this training for others so that circles can continue to unfold, like each ripple on a pond that waves and ebbs out to the edge. We can build and expand the circles to invite the flow of transformation in an unending energetic pond of wise women AND men, as we practice new paradigm leadership skills of compassion, respect, acceptance and love.
Who can take this training? It is not necessary to have any experience or a particular background. The information and techniques can be used by coaches, ministers, therapists, healers, group leaders, community activists, board members, people who volunteer, those who want to increase their communication skills, women who find that people share easily with them… any person who has an open heart.
