“I have learned that I feel my strongest when I am surrounded by a community of women. I have always surrounded myself with groups of women, but, in the last 10 years or so, have intentionally created or participated in women’s circles. I am currently a part of a circle of local women who meet once a month.
There is something profoundly powerful in sitting in circle with women who are able to support, nurture one another, hold space for one another, and listen to each other. It is a there that I feel unequivocally strong. It is a space that reminds me that I’m not alone in my challenges (and even in my victories), and where I always feel seen and heard. The women I have met through ten years of circles have become my confidants, sisters, best friends, and my support system.”
