Circles & Retreats
When we gather, wether in person in a circle or during a retreat, the potential for transformative shifts multiplies exponentially. Whether participants are actively engaged in a complex process or simply observing, the shared experience fortifies everyone involved.
This collective interaction not only enhances individual resilience but also fosters a profound sense of belonging and community. Providing the right container is crucial, as it unlocks the capacity for individuals to unite in ways they may have never imagined.
In our present context, the urgency and life-giving nature of coming together in these communal spaces have never been more apparent. The act of renewal, facilitated through shared experiences, not only revitalizes individuals but also strengthens the bonds that weave us into a resilient and interconnected community.

Return To the Root
In Collaboration with The Tree House
We are inviting you to gather with us who also yearn to reconnect to ground, to breath, to our histories, and to our hearts in a love-starved world.
Old trees fall, seeds are scattered, and some few open up to the warming soil, sending out fragile radicles that evolve into taproots and reach toward the interconnecting mycelium.
At the root, we need and must reach for each other in both new and forgotten ways.
Our lives together matter.
Grief Circle – Virtual
This series of Circles is an invitation to grieve together the losses experienced during the pandemic, past & ongoing, to witness one another’s pain & express our own.
Through this deeply personal embodied practice, we can strengthen our emotional capacity to withstand challenging times & weave back together our communities.
Grief Circle – In person
The model for this circle is inspired by Joanna Macy’s Circle of Grief (also called Truth Mandala or Truth Circle).
In our modern societies, both at an individual & collective level, we often struggle to process grief.
Rituals and rites of passage are mostly absent.
Collective mournings, thresholds, dire emergencies & profound changes are rarely acknowledged & processed, celebrated, and grieved communally.
Through this collective embodied practice, we can strengthen our emotional capacity to withstand challenging times & witness others weaving back together our communities.
Normal injustice – Virtual
Standing together when everything seems to collapse. This circle is a call to cooperation & action.
