Women Veterans Healing and Wellness Circle

Women’s Circles are all-female gatherings that involve rituals, intention setting, learning, and sharing (with no judgments allowed).

The purpose of the Women Veterans Healing and Wellness Circle is to facilitate women veterans in seeking a spiritual connection to their healing and wellness goals. This transpires when they can spend quality time with their brethren in an expansive, creative, and open-minded experience grounded in their traditions.

The Circle encourages them to slow down and have fun, and to experience the process of becoming better human beings. Spending time with other women veterans and facilitating an open and supportive experience is a profound step towards self-care. Caring for ourselves in a meaningful, deep way allows us to grow in healthy ways.  The Circle brings together women veterans for conversation, mutual support, and camaraderie built around healing and wellness.

The Circle will hold bi-weekly 2 hours meet ups for groups of 15 or less. It will also hold a quarterly Healing and Wellness Lounge to expand on the Circle experience outside of the Circle time. The Circle always has a healing and wellness theme and the Lounge expands on what is learned at the Circle. Connecting with other women veterans who are also seeking a path towards healing and wellness, and who have shared some of those similar experiences, is a very important part in helping them achieve their healing and wellness goals.
