CIRCLE LEADERSHIP

For those of you on the path of being a Circle Leader with Gather the Women,

below you will find the tools to assist you in doing that with ease and grace.

Gather the Women Vision Statement

 

Gather the Women Global Matrix™ (GTW) is a worldwide sisterhood that connects women through Circles, creating safe space to share our true selves. In Circles, we find our voices, reclaim our power and remember our self-worth. We celebrate our unique diversity as well as the rising of the Divine Feminine, leading to personal and planetary transformation.

Circle Principles

In circle there is no hierarchy and no separation. Circle principles allow women of all backgrounds and denominations to experience leadership. Circles include extroverts and those who have been watching from the sidelines for a lifetime equally. Women who have perhaps spent their lives as introverts are gently held by the group with a respect they may have never experienced. Every woman feels safe and comfortable and begin to speak from the heart.

 

Gather the Women Circles welcome diverse perspectives, offer a sacred center to hold space for the Spirit of the Circle and an intentional rim to embrace the energy created.

 

GTW Circles encourage the use of a talking piece for each sister’s voice or her silence to be heard. We practice deep listening and refrain from side conversations and comments.

 

A Circle offers a safe place to share personal experiences.

 

A Circle guardian may use a sounding device to call for a pause for moments of reflection and to re-center the Circle.

 

GTW acknowledges that there is a leader in every chair and each sister is responsible for the health of the Circle.

 

Personal information shared in Gather the Women Circles remains confidential.

 

Gather the Women Leadership understands that ours is not the only way or better way; ours is simply another way.
