Happy 2014! It is vividly cold for us here in Southern Ontario yet the sun is shining and that combination makes me feel very alive! I am reminded that I always find myself feeling this alive and connected at the close of each month’s Women’s Circle. The Power of the Circle never ceases to amaze me – there is a foundational peace that resides when a group of like-minded people gather together in circle.
Founded 10 years ago by Jill Hewlett, the York Region Women’s Circle has been meeting monthly at various locations, bringing a diverse yet connected group of women together to share, learn, experience and laugh. I began hosting the summer outdoor circles at our beautiful acreage in Holland Landing many years ago and soon joined to co-host throughout the year. We now offer two locations every month with Jill hosting a Toronto location and I carrying forward the York Region group.
Every month we feature a different presenter to share their journey and talents. It is experiential, nurturing and oh so much fun! Every month has first time attendees and those who rarely miss. New friendships are made and new ideas germinated that bring women to something they never thought of before. There is an uplifting that is so valuable in our busy lives. When we participate in the circle, we find our power increase exponentially like a drop of water rippling on the surface of a pond. There is power in numbers and when the commitment is made by many to come together in a circle to focus attention and joy, the circle emanates ripples of energy that can change the world.
Here is a sneak preview of the incredible presenters booked for the first half of this year.
January 23rd – Ingrid Folkers will bring to life her personal sacred journey walking the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in 2012.
February 27th – Charles Brand will teach and demonstrate “Crystal Enlightenment”.
March 27th – Helen Valleau will empower us for unlimited possibility.
April 24th – Toronto Psychic Medium, Carolyn Molnar will bring an evening of messages from spirit.
May 22nd – Learn to freely express your inner spirit with Karen Dorland, image and fashion feng shui consultant.
June 26th – This will be our kick off to outdoor circle with Elisha MacMillan leading us in a summer drum & dance celebration!
Make sure you reserve the dates and take some time to check out their websites to learn of all the fabulous talents each one brings to circle.
I would love to know what empowers and inspires you. Share your stories so that we each are touched by the power of the circle! And don’t forget to leave a link back to your own blog if you have one, via the commentluv feature here on the site.
Until next time,
