Sacred Circles

What are sacred circles?

Sacred Circles are groups of women who meet regularly with the goal to nurture themselves spiritually.  Women’s circles are formal or informal gatherings in the interest of bonding, sharing energy, and creating ritual.   The origins of women’s circles are ancient, but their applications are as modern as the women who participate in them.

How do sacred circles work?
Basic principles are: council / circle sharing, listening without an agenda, shared ownership / leadership, confidentiality, taking responsibility for one’s own needs, self-reflection, focus on spiritual development, and commitment.

Are there already sacred circles at First Church?
Yes. First Church currently has four active Circles, two of which were formed recently.  We hope to form more circles at First Church; so more women experience this unique & powerful opportunity for spiritual growth.
