Community Circle


SUNDAY, AUGUST 21: EmpowR Community Circle

A day in nature for anyone connected to the EmpowR community to cultivate belonging together.

Join us in circle, under the trees at Grandmother Cherry Sanctuary for a day of building community and cultivating care and belonging for each other and the Earth. We will center spaciousness for our breath, listening to our voices, being in our bodies, and connecting to each other and nature.

The invitation to attend is for anyone who has participated in an EmpowR program or event, anyone who has received emotional and spiritual support from EmpowR, anyone who would like to engage with us and who hasn’t yet, and anyone else who feels called to gather together in community with people who believe in being the change we want to see in the world.

We will dialogue, move, sing, laugh, cry, play, and co-create a day together from our hearts. Let’s create some magic together!

  • Cultivate a sense of belonging and relationship for people who envision a more loving, just, and healthy world.
