Community Connection Circle

EmpowR Community Connection Circle

A monthly drop-in connection space to build support and community along the continuum of healing and social justice, held the last Sunday of the month from 11:30 am-1:00 pm EST followed by an open sanctuary afternoon at the Forest Magic Healing Sanctuary.


An open invitation to co-create community–with inspiration from EmpowR’s vision for change making to bridge individual and collective healing; interdependent with our relationship with the Earth.

The circle will hold space for connecting our hearts and community building efforts, while nourishing each other to support our shared work in co-creating healthier lives and a more inclusive, just, and compassionate society.

Circles will be held BOTH online and outdoors, and you are invited to participate virtually or physically distanced at the Forest Magic Healing Sanctuary in Plainfield, Vermont.

If you attend in person, you are invited to stay for an open sanctuary afternoon to rest, reflect, and connect more deeply with each other and the Earth. Following the circle the sanctuary will be open for your peace, ease, and joy for the afternoon. Bring a journal, yoga mat/blanket/pillow, picnic items, and anything else to help you feel supported and comfortable.

EmpowR Community Connection Circles will be held the last Sunday of each month, from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm, followed by open sanctuary time.


Facilitation will follow circle process and honor safer space agreements.
