CIRCLE CONNECTIONS

Out of a clear awareness of the magnificence of women, the power of circles, and the longing for connection that all women feel, Circle Connections, Inc. was called into being. Our mission is developing and fostering new models of organization and leadership based on circle principles. We serve to empower women through Circles and Connections, locally and globally. Women have an important voice to be heard and the connecting of circles is a path to peace and justice.

THE CIRCLE WOMEN'S CENTRE

The Circle Vision

The Circle affirms the experiences and hopes of women, and the creative process we choose to explore and mirror the sacred in our lives.

The Circle is a space that can be entered actively and imaginatively with limitless possibilities for involvement, where the seed of the sacred is released, shared and celebrated as power for transformation and change.

The Circle Mission

The Circle Women’s Centre is a unique program and resource centre serving women in the London community and beyond, as well as the students of Brescia University College, the University of Western Ontario and the affiliate colleges. The Circle focuses on feminist spirituality, its theory and practice by women in contemporary society. We welcome women from diverse experience and backgrounds, and as such maintain a broad based view of spirituality, honouring the riches of all religious traditions and expressions.

Inspired by the feminist perspective “the personal is political,” The Circle also aspires to enlighten and enliven women on a wide range of issues such as activism, social justice, environmentalism, women’s rights, human rights, feminism and feminist spirituality. The Circle is part of the vibrant women's network on campus and in the London area. It links with and supports other women's groups in the community who work to dismantle unjust structures and to embody life-giving relationship with all that is created.

Values and Beliefs

We honour women’s ways of knowing. We celebrate each person’s Truth. We do ritual as a power for personal and structural transformation.
