Circles and Community have been an integral part of humanity since the beginning of our existence.
Connecting and forming tribes, circles, and gatherings is woven into our DNA and serve as a space for transformation and healing as well as friendship, love, and happiness.
The Circle is a powerful symbol of completion, equality, and connection.
Completion because it ends where it begins just like our natural cycles of learning, life, birth, death, and spiritual growth. It’s as if we are always destined to come back to the same place we started at in the beginning. You’ve experienced this when you learn a valuable and life altering lesson that shows you that everything was always perfect to begin with and never needed to change, however, it was the journey of travelling away from the beginning point that eventually led you back to its beginning and this realization.
Equality because at any point that you sit, rest, or travel on the perimeter or outside of a circle you are always the same distance from its centre. You could think of the centre as the truth, the core, or essence of who you are and who we all are. You could think of the centre as an anchor or love, devotion, and acceptance that is unchanging and unmovable. And regardless of where you are at on your journey, you are always the same distance from this centre. You are also the same distance as everyone else from this centre even if others do not realize it. God does not play favourites, we all have the same opportunity to reach that centre of love and therefore reconnect with our God-selves.
Connection because a circle is formed not alone but in a group with others; a community or tribe of souls who feel a visceral pull toward its centre and toward being a part of something larger than themselves. The energy of a circle is uplifting, supporting, and nurturing like a hug from someone you love. Due to its shape, it returns what is given and transforms what needs to be elevated, lifted, and released, Hand in hand, heart to heart, a circle reminds us that we are never alone and that we are so much stronger together.
A Circle represents a coming home to one’s self and a remembering of who you are and why you are here.
Today, there are many people struggling with feeling a sense of belonging and they are seeking high touch experiences such as retreats, workshops, and events that bring people face to face in a safe, supportive, and trusting environment.
There is a return to Circles happening in our world and also to simplifying life and doing what matters.
Whether you are more introverted or extroverted in nature, you are still human. Belonging to a community is as important to your health as your diet, exercise, and self-care practice. With all of the shifts and changes occurring in our individual energy and the energy of the planet many of us are waking up to the truth of who we are and this can be unsettling for some.
Circles and community provide the right tools, support, and energy to help you integrate your truth into your daily life and to let go of whatever no longer serves you on an energetic level so that you can feel free, confident, and joyful.
