Upcoming Classes & Events

Women's Wisdom Circle--Topic TBD

Free Event

Date: December 22, 2014

Topic TBD

The Women's Wisdom Circle is private group for clients that meets in theVillageLearningCentre from 6:30 PM- 8:30 PM on the fourth Monday of each month. The vision of this Circle is to create a space for connection and support for women who are navigating a world beyond pregnancy, birth, and new parenting. We will explore a range of topics that support the needs of mothers of maturing families. This group is a night for women only- no babies or spouses.

Facilitation of each Circle rotates among members who feel drawn to a topic they are passionate about discussing, or that they are willing to read up on in order to steer the conversation. No one “leader” is responsible for a schedule or discussion. These topics are starting off points and the group dynamic is that EVERYONE is responsible for research and discussion. Who knows where the discussion will end up!
As always, attendees are invited to bring and share food and drink. This is a time for you to come give and receive wisdom in a private intimate environment, forging deeper connection, and holding the space and confidentiality of all who attend. Many of this year’s groups draw inspiration from books and websites. They are not necessary to read before attending, but will deepen the discussion for those who are able.

Available Spaces: 19
