Circle of Stones
How might your life be different if you a had a circle of women to join?
Sharing stories from your life, able to speak & listen from the heart, growing in intimate connection rather than competition.
Our own Purple Tent.
No voice unheard, no one invisible.
HOW MIGHT YOUR LIFE BE DIFFERENT?
We shall call on the beauty of a sacred Council circle, witnessing each other, touching on the work of Judith Duerk’s – Circle of Stones. Posing the beautiful question of what is it to be a woman? As a wondering, a reflection…particularly poignant for the cycle that menopause begins –
the wise woman time.
Calling this circle is an act of social activism because it allows women who sense a creeping ‘invisibility’, a place to speak & listen from the heart, with judgement parked at the front gate. An opportunity to co-create sisterhood. And more…such a uniquely creative phase of life means the birthing of dreams & how would it be to have sisters to share the journey with? Even be co-collaborators.
DO YOU FEEL A YES?
Then come. We’ll meet in Bayside Melbourne in the secret garden that is Labyrinth Lane, share tea, share our stories, ourselves. You are invited.
Gift yourself or a friend some Wise Woman Time.
Men go to the New Warrior Training, a contemporary rite of passage and return changed. With a life mission, brothers for their journey and ongoing integration at I-groups (integration groups) change is understandable.
As the partner to such a man, growing in awareness, it can be exhilarating and scary. Who is this man? What if the potential I saw in him becomes real? Who would I be? How will this alter our lives? Or maybe he glimpses his own potential and freezes whilst I’m wanting him to fly high. These are some of the experiences that can surface alongside greater connection, intimacy and realness.
As partners, we transition too and sometimes what makes all the difference is having a soft place to pause from the hustle and bustle of life. Finding ways to detangle, share, reflect and ultimately to align with the new experiences.
At Labyrinth Lane we offer such a space for you to arrive. Take stock, reflect, share stories from your own life, you are the author of what you share, witness others and with time come to experience the deep connection this kind of circling. Not much fluff lands here, but plenty of joyful substance!
AND SOMETHING NEW! Come and sit in a nurturing, connecting circle with your partner. TOGETHER, share sacred space with him, be he life partner, son, friend, brother.
Learn (more) Laugh (more) Leave (more) in your skin. We do!
Are you looking for a circle experience? Wanting to sit in a circle space once a week or once a fortnight? The Open Council Circle is such a place.
We come together to listen and speak from the heart, getting to the essence and with spontaneity, share turning points/stories from our lives. Sit as a man, a woman, a young person, family members in a respectful, listening space. We separate the days doings from this more sacred sharing time with the beauty of singing bowls.
A DEEP DIVE INTO THE WORLD OF COUNCIL CIRCLES
Council is simple; we live in a world of chatter & in a Council circle, where we share experiences from our lives, we practise listening from the heart & speaking from the heart, being spontaneous & staying close to the essence when sharing.
In these conditions what’s spoken becomes of substance, real; sometimes even a thought long forgotten. It draws out the creative, the magical & what’s really of service to each of us.
IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN A CULTURE OF COLLABORATION BE IT AT WORK, IN COMMUNITY OR FAMILY, this is a structure that assists in developing collaborative dialogue & action.
- a combination of experiential learning & reflection
- being guided
- connecting within & with others
- being seen & heard
- leave feeling energised
an ancient practise for our modern times
Want to have meaningful conversations in your family? Bored with being the parent who has to know every answer? Perhaps feel like your parents don’t hear you? Wish home was a place to practise how to speak truth and vulnerability? Welcome to family Council circles.
The way there can be painful but an awakening of authenticity is ultimately nourishing. Stretching beyond the normal roles, a Family Council creates an environment where children’s struggles, doubts and fears can be accepted (for what they are) not shoved down into the body to harm.
