Sharing Circles, also known as Talking Circles, are based on sacred tradition. In a sharing circle, everyone is equal, and everyone belongs. Here the Sharing Circle begins with a guided meditation, followed by the opening of the space to share about your present moment experience with others in the circle. Each circle is uniquely created based on the intentions and goals of the group.
Participants in this sharing circle will learn the practice of inquiry, in the present moment, while being held in a container where everyone is invited to come as they are, with a willingness to be curious, and an opportunity to be nourished.
There will be 2 circle offerings. Each circle participant will have a 30 minute one-to-one meeting with Julia to become acquainted with the mindfulness practice we will be using in the circles. The circles will run for 6 consecutive weeks each for 90 minutes, and the one-to-one’s will take place the week prior to the first circle gathering. Each circle will have a maximum of 6 participants, and each participant is asked to commit to the 6 week sharing circle cycle.
