Life At Nature's Pace

Girls' Circles

Artwork by: K. Lister Wade

Navigating puberty, adolescence, and young adulthood comes with many challenges, both for young girls and their parents. At times both can feel misunderstood and disengaged, but it doesn't have to be that way. What if our young girls could step into womanhood with joy, intentionality and strength? Imagine if they understood the perceptiveness, assertiveness, strength, integrity and wisdom of their bodies. What if our young girls felt empowered to take charge of their own well-being? What if our young girls thrived on this journey, feeling loved, supported, understood and happy?

These circles will provide a safe, comfortable space for young girls to explore and embrace their journey from childhood to young womanhood. Together, with other girls and mentors, girls will learn about themselves and their changing bodies, and empower themselves as they move forward on their journey.

Craft and create. Share and support. Learn and grow. Love and empower. Our circles will be a solid foundation from which young girls can move forward with confidence into young womanhood.

Circle of Sisters - Winter Session (Pontypool Location)

When: Thur‚Äčsday's - January 5, February 2 and February 23

Time: 6pm to 8pm

Investment: $165.00 (includes three circles, Circle of Mothers, craft supplies and HST) 

Ages: 13 to 16

Where: Our homestead, 3294 Durham Regional Raod 20, Pontypool, ON

Facilitator: Kim Corrigan 

Circle of Sisters is fun, lively and social. We will gather in circle, connecting to each other and ourselves. We will enjoy games, crafts, stories, meditation, sharing circles, and creative expression. We continue the journey we began in Circle of Friends, learning how to be a good friend, exploring authentic expression and emotional self care, discovering the joy of the changing body and menstruation, and begin diving a little deeper into sexuality and healthy relationships, and what that means to each of them. Girls will feel empowered on their journey into adulthood, and have tools to help support them.

These circles will cultivate self-esteem, self-confidence, and what girls at this age are particularly looking for: a feeling of being heard, understood, loved and held, by a circle of friends and their own families.
