About the Circle Way:
Circle is a social art form. When we sit along straight edges at tables or desks, we struggle to communicate & understand one another. Many forms like these create separation & even hierarchy; circle welcomes us back together into one cohesive & united whole. Once you've taken your seat, you're there & a crucial piece to the whole. Every person's level of engagement or lack thereof is noticeable. There is nowhere to hide or secretly check your phone. This intensified & intentional way of showing up creates deeper experiences & meaningful connections.
Circle offers space to:
✧ Take a breath.
✧ Focus on the people you're actually with.
✧ Fully experience the present moment.
The Art of Hosting Circles:
Hosting circles can be a deeply rewarding & fulfilling part of life. Every circle has a center & as the host, you get to create that center & invite others to contribute to it. In this workshop, we will cover how to create a strong center ~ including building an altar, theme, intention, agreements, & opening/closing ceremonies. We will discuss the power of ritual & practice designing one from scratch!
We will also get into the logistics of hosting circles including marketing, leadership roles & responsibilities, & how to actually get started. The different leadership roles I will cover include host, co-host, guardian, & facilitator. Not all of these roles must be filled or filled by different people, but getting more leaders involved will strengthen the safety & stability of your circle.
