2024 Soul Circles

One Hour Weekly Meetings over Six Weeks

February 19 – March 25

Have you longed for space where your soul is cared for and nourished?

This Spring, our Spiritual Directors will be hosting weekly soul circles, a time for nourishing group soul care. Soul circles are a place where our members can experience a taste of soul care led by our wonderful Spiritual Directors – no curriculum, no agenda, just space for people to draw near to God, together. 

Spiritual Directors are trained listeners – they’re not there to give you all the answers or counsel you on a change of behavior, but to hold space with you, God, and the longings of your heart. Group soul care is a time for you to draw near to the Lord alongside a small group of others and notice together what God is doing in and around you.

Soul Circles are:

  • A welcoming place where those attending can show up just as they are
  • An invitation to sit in silence listening for Love’s voice
  • A place where it’s okay to not have answer and to truly come with more questions than answers
  • A time to hold space & listen deeply, curiously and gently without giving advice
  • A place to share and listen with patience and without judgment
  • A respectful space that allows people to share in confidence
  • A time to be held with our Creator’s loving kindness

Each soul circle will meet on the same day and time each week between February 19th and March 25th (6 gatherings total unless otherwise stated). Space is VERY limited in these groups in order to help cultivate an environment where we each can be seen and known.

To honor the generosity and wisdom of our Spiritual Directors, these groups are “pay what you are able”. Pricing options between $25 to $200.

Have a Question?

How will I access the sessions?

The sessions will be hosted live on Zoom. Upon registration, you’ll receive an email with your login information to the Zoom meeting. You’ll also receive a reminder email prior to each live session with the Zoom link.

What equipment do I need?

For each session, you’ll need a smart device or computer to login to the Zoom meetings. You may want to have a journal and pen or pencil to take notes.

Will replays be available if I miss a session?

Creating a safe space for all attendees to share openly what’s on their hearts within Soul Circles is important to us. We encourage live attendance to fully participate in soul circles. Replays are not available.

Do I have to be on camera?

Nope! You’re certainly welcome to (the instructors love connecting face-to-face) but you’re welcome regardless of how you show up that day.

Is there a minimum number of registered members needed for a soul circle to happen?

Yes, the minimum number of members needed for a soul circle to move forward is three. If three members do not sign up for the soul circle, we will work with members to find another soul circle for them.
