What is the REAL Circle of Women?

The Circle gives you the chance to reconnect with yourself and with other women who hold space for each other, with loving kindness and curiosity. If you're anything like those who have attended previously, you will leave feeling renewed and ready to head back to life with more clarity and strength. 

Bring your journal or a notebook and pen and a travel mug (if you have one) and I'll take care of the rest. 

Who is it for?

It is for anyone who identifies as a woman. We do not invite children to this Circle, but you may bring a babe in arms if that enables you to attend. You might be local, you might travel further to come to the Circle.

When is it?

The first Sunday of each month, 2-4.30pm. You can pick and choose which Circles to come to. It's great if it works for you occasionally, and it's also lovely to see women returning again and again, it really builds the sense of community. The booking form shows all the available dates and you can book these in advance if you wish.

Where is it?

REAL Circles are held in The Log Cabin in my garden in Soham. Click here to find out more about the venue.

How much is each ticket for the Circle?

Tickets are £12.50 per person for the REAL Circle of Women. Often, that comes from the person booking but, if finances are a barrier, you can pay whatever feels comfortable (from zero pounds upwards!) and the rest of the ticket cost can come from the Random Act Of Kindness (RAOK) fund.

Equally, if you'd be happy to pay a bit more than the ticket cost to reflect your fortunate circumstances, you would be helping someone to be able to attend at a price that is right for them - your Random Act Of Kindness for the day! See the Random Act Of Kindness page for more details about the RAOK fund.

How do I book and pay?

Fill out the booking form here to book for as many Circles as you like (you can pick and choose dates). You can pay by bank transfer or debit card, but if you need an alternative payment method, just ask. Details are in the booking form. 

What happens in the Circle?

After arriving and settling in with a cuppa, there are 5-6 parts of the Circle:

During the whole thing we drink a cuppa or three, eat traybake, nip to loo anytime and generally keep ourselves comfortable!

There are sometimes a few tears when sharing about something that feels hard, as it's a safe space where you can do that, there's always loads of solidarity and plenty of laughter as we all just 'get it'!

You can ask the group any questions that are on your mind, knowing that no-one will judge you or tell you what to do, because I make it clear that only you know what feels right for you. Instead of advice, you'll hear stories, experiences and information from myself and others. You don't have to have a question to come along, it's all about having the opportunity to connect with others and be part of a group.

How many people will be there?

A minimum of three and a maximum of eight women, plus me.

What if I need to cancel my place?

Places are limited, so if you need to cancel, I would appreciate you letting me know as soon as circumstances change, so that I can offer your space to someone else.
