A virtual mindfulness and Compassion Practice Circle for Women


Join an 8-week practice circle for women wanting to transform a time of transition in their lives, into a source of learning, possibility and growth.

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.

Together, we'll explore holistic and creative practices while moving through a four-part program designed to strengthen your emotional resilience, centering mindfulness and compassion skills.

We'll explore:

- BEING (with compassion + curiosity)

- RELEASING (with compassion + acceptance)

- RECEIVING (with compassion + receptivity)

- DOING (with compassion + courage)

You'll emerge from this group journey feeling more connected to yourself and to others, feeling a greater sense of inner resilience, and with a compassionate vision for what's next for you.

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

Enrollment Includes:

- EIGHT weekly group meetings featuring an intentional blend of restorative yoga, talk therapy, mindful self-compassion practices, and creative expressive practices.

- Access to a private virtual classroom with resources to support you and enrich your learning: journal prompts, recorded video and audio guided practices, and creative “self work” to encourage deeper exploration and creative expression.
