Contemplative Circles

 

Join a ‘C.I.rcle’

CI’s Contemplative C.I.rcles are founded on wisdom traditions and practices that emphasize discernment, deep listening, authentic connection and creative perspective. C.I.rcles meet in small groups in-person or via Zoom for support and community around similar issues related to various fields.

Our Contemplative Circles have a variety of focus areas to meet the needs of a particular field or vocation.

"I experienced clear, open hearted leadership and a much needed process for real listening. I highly recommend Circles International."

- Cynthia Winton-Henry, Co-founder & Executive Director, Interplay

"Circles International is a wonderfully intentional organization dedicated to harnessing the power and wisdom within today's social justice leaders. They provide a unique perspective on strategies to avoid burnout in the midst of emotionally and mentally intense work. Eliza and Alexis both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their sessions which allow participants to reflect on individual strengths and opportunities for growth. After participating in a contemplative circle, I was able to bring back several new ideas to a critical challenge I've been facing at work. I also ended the session feeling rejuvenated and refreshed, and met a new supportive community of like-minded individuals."

- Tyler Mains, Founder, Board of Directors Chair, MERIT Health Leadership Academy

"Alexis and Eliza have a calming and grounding presence that makes unplugging and recharging a powerful experience. Thank you for creating the space for me to to reflect, share, and connect to authentically."

- Brittany Zelch, Director of Partnerships, GlobeMed
