“Here Now” Los Angeles Group Circles

about this event

It’s been a while since weREWILD began our monthly campfire circles and just as long, it seems, since we’ve held one, as our collective crises shifted the intimacy and movement of our lives. While intentional groups are an age-old practice, specifically council circles developed over thousands of years by indigenous cultures around the world, the times have rapidly changed in a mere flash.

This group take place in a circle of equity, bearing witness to one another and sharing from the heart authentically. Participants agree to speak one-at-a-time, sharing their personal experiences and listening non-judgmentally while others do the same. We keep it lean, from the heart, and everyone contributes their “voice” in the circle in some way.

For those who are in the Los Angeles area, we are offering this limited-capacity in-person circle every 3 weeks to create an ongoing community and familiarity with group experiences. Together, we can navigate the raw emotional landscape of these times without judgment, just allowing. Dates and details are below.

*18 years of age and up. All genders and non-gender conforming.*

Why we sit in circle:

  • A place to be – and find – who you are and the voice that wants to come through
  • An arena for your Truth – instead of a persuasive story
  • Taking part in a mirroring experience, being seen, seeing, and listening
  • Sharing mental, emotional, and physical resources
  • Asking for what one needs and wants – hearing the ask instead of caretaking
  • Allowing the power of silence and each person’s presence
