Je vous invite à rejoindre un espace de partage intime et d'écoute profonde.
A few answers to questions you may have…
What is the format of the gathering?
We host the gathering in circle (based on The Circle Way). It’s an informal gathering for all who identify as women.
What will be the content? It’s a sharing circle, so it has no set agenda. We simply pass the talking piece around the circle and share whatever is going on in our lives. We support each other, but we don’t try to fix each other or offer advice.
Can I bring a friend? Yes! Most definitely! This is not an exclusive gathering – it is open to anyone who identifies as a woman who wants a place to gather with other women for good conversation. Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone who may be interested.
Is there a cost? Occasionally we pass a hat around to pay for the rental of the building, but otherwise there is no obligation to pay.
Do I need to bring anything? No. We keep it simple. There is always tea available, and if you feel like bringing some snacks to share, you can, but nothing is expected.
Do I need to RSVP? No, just show up.
Is this connected to any spiritual tradition? No. You’re welcome no matter what background you have and whether or not you have a spiritual tradition.
Is it connected to any organization? It is connected to other circles around the world through Gather the Women, whose sole mandate is to support women’s circles. It does not have an agenda or set of traditions – it simply wants to be a catalyst for supporting women in supporting each other.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. I hope to see you there!
WINNIPEG WOMEN'S CIRCLE
We host an informal gathering in circle for all who identify as women.
The format of our gathering is to sit in circle. We light a candle in the centre and ring in to set the beginning and end of each of our gatherings. A variety of talking pieces are set in the middle of the room. The person who has a talking piece speaks with intention while the others in the circle listen with attention. Everything said in circle is held in that space as sacred. It is not shared outside the circle.
Do you feel alone and disconnected? Do you long for a deeper connection with other women? Our group may be for you.
We share what's on our hearts that week. Sometimes the words are full of hope, sometimes the words are of despair and everything in between. We do our best to listen without judgement and to not offer advice. This is a place to share and be heard.
This a sharing circle; it has no set agenda. We pass a talking piece around the circle and share whatever is going on in our lives. You’re welcome no matter what background you have and whether or not you have a spiritual tradition. We have no religious affiliation.
Occasionally we pass a hat around to pay for the rental of the building, but otherwise there is no obligation to pay. There is always tea available, and if you feel like bringing some snacks to share, you can, but nothing is expected.
