Circle of Women

“A circle of women can provide a container for emergence in a way that a woman alone or even a one-to-one relationship cannot.  Intimate relationships and even friendships can break or at least be greatly strained by life changes.  But from the combined wisdom and energy of a small group of women who are committed to ‘hearing each other into speech,’ continuity and trust can develop that can be relied on over the long term.  And, witnessing each person’s direct knowing of her truth, we can be empowered to live our own.”  Page 23, The Feminine Face of God: The Unfolding of The Sacred in Women by Sherry Ruth Anderson & Patricia Hopkins, cc 1991
