Why a Circle?
We know that the circle is the most ancient way for human beings to come together. In circle, there is no hierarchy and no separation. With a vase of colorful flowers on a beautiful scarf in the center, or some other object of beauty or meaning, we create a focal point. In very large gatherings, we use our ingenuity to create the sense of connection and intention that circle brings.
Within GTW, we come together to examine our beliefs and their origins. We help each other recognize who we are now, and who we would like to become. Together, we explore changes we would like to effect in the world. The possibilities are infinite when women are inspired and encouraged by each other. We also find support and renewed energy in circle for what we are doing in our lives.
A GTW circle can be involved in the bigger picture of activism, but there does not have to be a specific agenda, other than to be inspired, affirmed, and/or empowered. The circle can also simply be a safe place for renewal. GTW encourages gathering in circles for the betterment and empowerment of ourselves and all women.
Gather the Women has many circles in the United States, Canada, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Portugal,
the Canary Islands, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Israel, Germany, Denmark,
Uganda, Zimbabwe and in Australia.
