Women’s Circle is a non judgmental, gently facilitated listening and support group for women to hold space and show up for ourselves and each other. The session is an opportunity to find stillness, connection and solidarity; a space to speak your truth, if you feel moved to and process what is present in you. Inspired by peer counselling approaches and Brigid Russell’s Spaces for Listening, the format provides equal opportunity for all who want to share what is on their mind and in their heart.
We invite you to make S P A C E and find sanctuary in compassionate connection, to benefit from the wisdom of other women by witnessing their stories, pains and triumphs. Women’s Circle is a unique and rare space to let go of the identity veils we maintain, to come exactly as you are and connect with people that empathise with your situation and hold space for your unique set of circumstances and experiences. You are invited to share as much or as little as you wish, or just listen to others.
The session will be gently facilitated and will include poems, prose and other offerings to guide discussion and support reflection.
Women’s circle alternates between in person and online each month. In person sessions are held at HerSpace (Strandgata 19, 0152 Oslo) where there will be opportunity to stay and chat after the session, with warm tea by candlelight.
When you leave this session, either in person or online, we hope you will feel nurtured and lifted in your spirit. We look forward to seeing you.
** Please note that in order to create a safe and supportive space, we will “close the doors” and begin promptly at 19:05. Please arrive/join on time. **
This event is free for HerSpace members.
We want this event to be accessible to all. If your financial situation is preventing you from attending this event, please email .
