A virtual Mindfulness and Compassion Practice Circle for Women


Join a virtual practice circle for women wanting to cultivate more self-awareness, self-compassion, and self-expression.

This will be a brave space to explore personal and relational challenges and grow into more helpful ways of relating to self and others while learning a practical foundation of relational mindfulness and compassion skills.

You'll emerge from this group journey feeling more connected to yourself and to others, feeling a greater sense of inner resilience, and self-compassion. You’ll have a more compassionate understanding of your own relational patterns and be better practiced towards deeper connection, to help you nurture healthier and happier relationships throughout your life.

It's a deeply nourishing space featuring:

- compassionate meditation

- compassionate journaling

- compassionate group processing

Members help co-create a connected and supportive space to practice and strengthen self-awareness, self-compassion, healthy communication, assertiveness, boundary setting, and overall relational wellness.

In groups, the interplay among participants provides a rich practice space to better get to know and improve how we relate to ourselves and others.

As group sharing unfolds, members practice being present in their bodies, connecting to and vocalizing their emotional experiences with others, and experiencing being seen and heard.

Commonly explored topics might include working with difficult emotions, self-doubt, anxiety, stress, depression, family challenges, dating, career concerns, interpersonal relationships, and cultivating inner strengths and emotional resiliency.

This practice circle is open to all women 20+ years of age, cis and trans, as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that focuses on women's experiences.

This practice circle can be a wonderful supplement for individual therapy. No prior group experience is necessary. All women are welcome.

Group participation includes:

- Individual initial meeting to clarify your intentions for the group

- TWO group meetings per month

- Individual final meeting once you decide to conclude your participation in the group, to clarify and integrate lessons learned from the group.

To apply for this group, please contact Michelle.
