Empowering through gathering in circle
What is a sacred circle? Imagine a safe space where every week you can share yourself without fear of judgment in a circle of peers and adults where you are felt seen, heard and accepted. I’m designating Monday nights for our youth, 21 and under. More and more young people are in need of help and have nowhere to turn. I’m offering a safe place for them to learn that they are not alone, but most importantly learn how to empower themselves. These circles are designed for those who may suffer from anxiety, depression, lack in confidence, self-worth, have big overwhelming emotions, or maybe they are just looking to connect and meet some truly amazing people. Whoever you are, I welcome with an open heart. As someone who struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts as a teen, I am passionate about enhancing positive mental health, self-growth and self-belief, people in my circles will feel nurtured and accepted. You are encouraged to speak not only what’s on your mind, but from the heart. IF you want to! No pressure. You can just sit and hold space for others. However, you are free to share your innermost feelings if you choose. All people are valued, respected, and listened to without judgement. No one is allowed to coach you, give advice, comment, criticize or judge. In circle you have a place to be heard. • A place where you can say what your heart wants to say. • A place where you can learn to listen to yourself and find that you have all the answers. • A place where you discover that others are going through the same things as you. • A place where you empower yourself and become who you are meant to be. In return you learn to hold space for others. To listen. Without judgement. To hold compassion for another person. To respect one another even if we are different.
