The Women’s Circle is an ancient tradition in most indigenous communities around the world, and have survived the fluctuations of society’s pressures to quiet women’s voices. These circles are a space to share ideas, learn skills, and seek advice. Most of all, they’re a place where women can help each other become their best selves.
Threads provides a supportive infrastructure of peer to peer support to help women come together to improve their well-being. We believe a peer group approach encourages and supports an environment of real transformation and accountability, where support is created, and healing is promoted for growth and well-being for each participant. Threads’ women’s circles encourage community, communication, connection, and collaboration. Helping women develop and implement their leadership as agents of change for themselves and their communities.
Our circles are small groups of women who share common identities. They meet regularly over coffee, potlucks series at the women’s homes, or in virtual meet-ups online. The circle gatherings are an opportunity for women to share wisdom and advice, to explore challenges and solutions, learn new skills, network, and raise awareness through information sharing. It’s a space to be together and tap into the wisdom and creative solutions needed to transform themselves and the world in this time and place in history.
This is made possible by the deep well of community support and inspiration from which participants can draw wisdom and strength. The circles give women, young and old, safe spaces to share their stories, opportunities to nourish themselves through ceremony and rituals of sisterhood.
We want to see women leave inspired and ready to start new, let go, keep going, accept change, shift perspectives, be seen, slow down and remain present in the now.
