Details

 

Forever women have gathered in circle. It’s only in the last century that we’ve become isolated from one another. But at this time in history, women all over the world are rediscovering the value and necessity of reconnecting to their sisters again by gathering in circles. 

 

A Walking Our Talk circle is not a therapy group, but rather a structure and opportunity to connect with ourselves, one another, and step out of our sense of isolation. Women report a multitude of positive results from sitting in circle: feeling happier, more connected, more purposeful, less lonely, and moving forward more confidently toward their own personal and professional goals. 

 

Yet, in order to forward this mission we need leaders, women willing to go beyond their own fears – to lead themselves by stepping into facilitation, women determined to examine the patterns that have blocked their own expression and full-out living, women who have been so transformed by the Walking Our Talk circle movement that they want to bring this transformational experience to others. This commitment to women’s empowerment is why WOT offers these facilitator trainings. 

 

Over the last 12 years we have crafted a structure and context that we’ve found to work most effectively in supporting women’s personal evolution as well as the completion of their projects. Moving through the segments of each week’s circle, women learn to cultivate loving presence, go deeper into their own process, and share and hold space respectfully. We will ask how we invite that development as a leader/facilitator.

By sharing our authentic selves with others in a structure that ensures a loving and safe place, we are not only building our own confidence and personal power, we are also sharing our gifts with the world and inspiring others to take the leap for themselves.

This WOT Intensive Training Weekend will gather up to 12 women of all ages, and diverse economic and social backgrounds. When you sit in a WOT circle where trust, compassion, and creativity rule, you begin to feel the power and potential of a space of belonging and care that is unique in our modern virtual culture. Feeling an almost immediate sense of safety, you naturally open more vulnerably to others and build bonds that support your thriving. Differences melt and the truth of our undeniable connection reigns.  

Founder, Mary Campbell, will host the weekend with guest facilitators of Berkshire circles bringing their experience for various parts of each day's schedule.

As the weekend unfolds, the feeling of community deepens, close personal friendships form, and a trusted support network will evolve. 

 

As the weekend concludes you will articulate a vision for yourself for the following eight weeks and buddy with your fellow facilitators-in-training in the circle (FITs) to support you as you bring your intention into reality throughout the summer and fall.
