Healing Gifts from a Sacred Circle
Experiential. Women Only Please.
For over six years, as everyday women, we gathered monthly in a a sacred circle to support one another in common life issues, as we explored our own understandings of being in the world. We created a safe place; one of trust, ritual, respect and listening without agenda. We would like to present the knowledge and structure to encourage women in their own communities to create powerful healing circles.
Our workshop format would be a combination of a power point presentation explaining the circle basics and an experiential group process.
Each of the three presenters has been in the healing field for over twenty-five years and attribute a large part of their professional and personal growth to the Sacred Circle experience.
