Wednesday Wisdom Circle

Monday Freedom Circle

~  on-line only (effective April 1, 2020) ~

In person will resume when Health Department Advises

If you haven't participated in a Circle you may be thinking
why do I want to share my thoughts and feelings with strangers?
There are many benefits to being part of a group, and after participating
you will be surprised how rewarding the experience is.
You will benefit from:
  • Understanding you are not alone in your life struggles and transitions - we all share similar stories and can learn from each other.
  • Valuable insights about yourself comes through sharing your story with other members - when we step outside our story (and the victim thoughts attached to our story) we become more objective.
  • Helps you relate to others and yourself in healthier ways - a heart-felt and authentic connection happens.
  • Find your voice - provides a safe environment to recognize and express your feelings and needs.
  • Builds confidence for speaking up for yourself in your life - practice asking for what you need or setting boundaries. 
  • Learn how to listen to others without judgement.
  • Make new friends and build a support network - A community of women can be a soft place to land as you practice new behaviours in your life and step outside of your comfort zone. The actions you take between sessions are shared back with your group and you are held and supported as you move through your successes and challenges. Everyone in the group is on a similar journey of self growth and shares the space and place of vulnerability while going through change. There is an indescribable feeling of comfort when you feel safe enough to experiment with your authentic self and practice being the new and improved you.
  • The group setting provides an easy way to practice the Art of Self-Reflection. There is a natural opportunity to watch yourself from outside yourself and ask questions of:
    • Do I typically hang back until someone invites me to speak? Or do I take the lead?

    • Do I only share positive information about myself and not the things I'm struggling with?

    • What parts of myself do I let others see? What parts of me do I hide?

    • How do I handle conflict?

    • How do I get my needs met?

Circles will be a good fit if you:
  • can commit to meeting weekly
  • are willing to share a bit about yourself and your story
  • want to learn how to listen more effectively and
    release your judgement of self and others
  • are able to do a minimum of 30 minutes homework
    between sessions
  • ARE NOT in crisis. Emotional crisis needs to be first
    addressed individually. 

If you are new to being part of a Circle please
contact me to ensure it is the best
fit for you. We will then schedule a brief 
conversation to exchange questions. 

"Before making the choice to attend Summer Circle I had never heard of anything like this, and thought that because I’m not a sharer why would I do this? I also tend to bury my issues and move on, so I didn’t think this type of group was for me. I decided to join when a spot became available and I made a spur of the moment decision to try something outside my comfort zone. Best decision ever.

Being in Circle has been amazing. It has allowed me to explore parts of myself I never would on a regular basis. Dianna is wonderful. The way she teaches is so great.

The most important and positive outcome I experienced was that the other ladies have become my tribe, my people, friends for life. After attending a Circle, I think its amazing and would do something like this again for sure."
