Why Women's Circles are Transformative
Whether you've attended women's circles for years or have recently felt called to seek one out, this blog post is for you.
One question we receive often via our GoddessCeremony Facebook page and Instagram is ~ why are women's circles so transformative? What really happens at women's circles?
While every women's circle is slightly different, at their core, they are all very much the same. A sacred women's circle is a safe and sacred space for women of all walks of life to gather together. Competition, jealousy and unkindness are replaced with love, respect and celebration for the Divine Feminine and all women.
Women's circles are life changing for a number of reasons. We've listed our top reasons below!
-Why Women's Circles are Transformative-
1) You are welcomed into a safe space and loved the way you are
Sadly, many people have never felt this level of acceptance before. At a women's circle, you are welcomed in the way you are, as a beautifully imperfect human. The things that may normally separate us as different are replaced with mutual respect and understanding.
2) You have the opportunity to be heard and to listen
It's a special thing when a woman feels heard. To be able to share your story, what's going on for you in your life or the things you are currently working through is a powerful experience. You also have the space to hear other women's stories and see the similarities that exist between all of us. When we know another person's stories, it's far easier to love them and respect them.
3) You are allowed to be authentic
Have you ever been asked how you're doing and immediately responded back with good even though you're definitely not good? A women's circle offers you the space to be authentic and truly share what is real for you. This sacred space is a loving container to share real things, whether they are exciting or challenging.
4) You have the space to remember a tradition as old as time
Women have been gathering in circle for thousands of years, and so it's a really special experience to sit in circle with other women and revive this tradition. As women gather in circle, a connection that is as old as time is remembered.
