What Women Say
WOW all I can say is WOW. This course exceeded my expectations. I have taken many many courses and few have delivered so much content. HTLC gave me more than I was expecting and has really changed how I do things in circles and in my private life. I love how open Tanya Lynn is. She shows you her raw self and so does everyone in Circle. You will grow like you never believed you could! Best part is you will realize you are not alone!
HTLC came at the right time in my life. I had heard the call many years back, had taken yoga training (as a possible answer), but knew it was not quite right. I moved, had my second child, and still the call, the niggle, was twitching away inside. I had to do something about it, or leave it. It was costing too much energy carrying around this idea if nothing was to come of it… I then came across HTLC, and immediately signed-up. When it arrived, I felt very excited. The course did not disappoint at all. The power, the juice, the rawness, the mystical all flowed naturally through-out the course… There was something so synchronous about the whole course, and there still is now. From the course, I learnt a solid structure and rhythm for circle. While I knew the basics, actually having this structure (that works) gave me confidence in holding my own. I also felt incredibly supported by the women in my group and started my 1st circle during the course, knowing that they would hold me accountable – which of course is amazing and liberating. What a blessing! More than this, taking this course for me was an act of commitment to the truest and deepest part of myself. An initiation to hold and live from this space, within and without of circle.
Yes I would recommend this program to women with whom it resonates. I can say the program delivers everything it promises, and that is saying a lot. For women who feel called to take the feminine awakening further into their communities pro-actively, this is a brilliant path of learning, healing and a loving push forward. This program took me from thinking about leading Circles to actually leading Circles. There is so much to learn here, and so much transformation available through this path.
This training is amazing. Tanya is amazing, loving, authentic and so inspirational together with assistance from the co-facilitators. I have done a lot of different trainings and programs. To my surprise this was not only a training but also a deep healing journey for me. I got to experience the vulnerability of being in circle (especially during the first 6 weeks) and also how to facilitate circle. Each week has a unique theme that gives you an opportunity to heal on the topic within yourself, grow and learn. The learning is both very practical with specific tools, questions, worksheets, videos, reading and experiential. You get to experience and feel everything that you read & learn about. True knowledge comes from your own experience.
My experience going through the How To Lead Circle program forever changed the trajectory of my life. This powerfully unique program extended far beyond my capacity to lead women; it healed me profoundly and in ways I hadn’t originally perceived. Tanya’s leadership style challenges, embraces, and empowers women as they go through this program. Deep work must be done within ourselves before we can truly begin to help others heal. This program helped me overcome so many deeply rooted wounds and traumas and truly put me in the position to help other women along their path to healing, wellbeing, and empowerment. I can’t thank Tanya and Sistership Circle enough for how much this program has shaped my leadership, self worth, and personal betterment.
How to Lead Circle was a breakthrough for me. I loved the structure, the support and connection with other women that became dear sisters. I felt safe being vulnerable which helped me grow as a facilitator. Tanya provides great value and support by giving me specific steps in How to Lead a Circle and then the best part was we lead circles in pairs and received positive feedback. You will not regret joining HTLC. Don’t hesitate, give yourself this gift.
Tanya is a warm, encouraging, motivating teacher who pours her heart into teaching you what she knows – which is a lot! The course content is amazing value and the chance to experience a Sistership Circle with other students at the same time is fantastic. It really brings to life the material. Highly recommended!
Attending the “How to Lead a Sistership Circle” was a deep experience for me. I value the open, respectful and supportive community with women all over the world. There is a clear structure and plenty of valuable materials in the course and our facilitator lead us with a lot of experience, passion, respect, and love through the circles. This course definitely empowers me to start my own women’s circle in a well prepared and confident way. I highly recommend it.
My biggest takeaway from this course was feeling confident in running my own circles and bringing this experience and knowledge into everything I do. I’m now starting my online circles – Global Goddess Glow – inspired by connecting with women across the globe. I would definitely recommend this course to others who are interested in stepping more into their feminine leadership.
I would encourage women to join this program, with all my Heart. I see from the point of view of an elder that women are on the verge of re-claiming our inherent rights and responsibilities to protect our young; and to do this we need each other. We need to empower ourselves as The Mother; to take our place which was not bestowed upon us by any man-made system, but was given to us along with our sacred position as the life givers. Being The Mother is being strong and fierce and smart and not backing down and not agreeing to bow down any longer to male authority which is destroying our One Mother: Earth. Join this Feminine Uprising, re-claim Who You Are.
I learned so much about being a leader & myself as a leader. I’ve stepped through severe social anxiety to a new level in my battle through the support & love of Tanya & my circle sisters. It was such a wonderful experience to be held, guided, supported, & loved through this training. I’ve made bonds with these women that I didn’t know were possible.
I didn’t think it was possible – that I could let anyone in this far again, but my heart has been unwalled & opened through this experience & the weekly circles. I’ve been shown that women CAN be compassionate, loving, supportive friends. I’ve also been told by my sisters that I’ve come out of my shell & blossomed tremendously.
I really enjoyed the training. I felt a bit self conscious being on zoom, but Sharlene was amazing and I soon forgot that I was on zoom. I loved being in the safely held space to share and co-create. It was very structured and covered a lot of things. What I gained the most from was buddying up with another sister and co-leading on a zoom call. This gave me a chance to really step out of my comfort zone, to be held, witnessed and supported in a safe space with no judgement. This experience was invaluable to my growth. I would highly recommend HTLC.
Through participating in the How to Lead Circle course, I dropped even more into my power. I came with so many questions, which got answered in a very soft and organic way; my facilitators explained through example. Also there is so much content for the mind … Sistership Circle is a whole universe. I feel I got more defined, finding more of my individual shape underneath all the doubts and insecurities that have accumulating throughout my life. The HTLC program can not do the journey for you, but it is a extremely powerful support on the road. It provides tools and a map, to work and navigate. I am very thankful to myself that I gave me this gift, that I made my needs a priority and participated in the program.
I’d been in dysfunctional women’s circles before, so when I wanted to start my own I wanted a deeper knowledge of how to make the circles balanced and solid. In the HTLC course I learned how to help all women leave their ego outside the sacred container, how to have valuable content in every circle and how to make all women feel seen, heard and equally valued. I learned how to hold sacred space for a women’s circle where we could always feel safe and uplifted without any competition. In hindsight I can see that HTLC also helped me gain the confidence to become the leading lady of my life, as the knowledge Tanya taught us can be used both inside a circle and in other groups of 2 or more (family, 1-on-1 coaching, workplace meetings etc). It is a truly life changing program.
For anyone who is thinking about investing in themselves, do it! This course helped me see that by having more structure in the circles I was already holding brought more intimacy and more honesty from the women who were attending. Tanya is truly an activator, whether you need a tiny little nudge or a push off the edge she will give you some great tools to have the confidence and clarity to be a leader. I was running a tiny little spiritual business when I started How to Lead Circle Program. By the end of the 3 months, my confidence grew, I doubled the business I was bringing in, I took more courses to improve my coaching skills, and I started the process of hiring an assistant. I also began the process of creating my own online course which I never would have had the confidence or clarity to do without pushing my boundaries by taking this course.
The How to Lead Circle course gave me confidence in my own ability to lead a circle. There is a beautiful structure which talks about every aspect of circle. I feel inspired on my path to share more of this work! Thank you, Tanya!
As a result of participating in Tanya’s sistership circle program, I am so much more aware of the unique value of both my feminine and masculine energies–and how to incorporate them appropriately into circle facilitation as well as my overall business life. There are too many benefits to the experience to mention here. Suffice it to say, you will not be disappointed if you register for this course. Worth every dollar you invest, it’s a game changer.
I absolutely loved doing How to Lead Circle training with Tanya – I learned so much and loved her leadership and the way she held the online space and the structure she created. Also, I loved the processes that she took us through. I am based in Australia and enjoyed connecting with the sister’s in the group from other countries. I also loved that if I had any questions or queries. Tanya was able to answer them immediately or direct me to the area of the site that had the answer or what I needed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this training to any woman.
I haven’t done many courses related to self-help/healing/growth. I have been listening carefully for six months paying attention, going in, asking questions… I heard Tanya and straight away what she said completely resonated with me on some deeper level. This is only the beginning for me… going in, exploring my leadership, my essence. As much as I am committed to this exploration I don’t have to try a million things before I find the right one. I know part of discovering is getting to try and experience, jumping into action but…still.
The HTLC program has given me the experience of deep connection with other women therefore creating the assurance that I can relate with my sisters in positive and meaningful ways. The withhold tool is amazing because it opens up the dialogue and the chance to express what I feel without being judged for it. And it gives the other person the chance to answer if she feels like it. My biggest takeaway was to achieve a level of confidence in myself that no other workshop or therapy gave me to embody leadership.
I have learned so much about myself and things that trigger both positive and negative reactions. This training is helping me to take 100% ownership of my feelings and how I am showing up in this world. It has also helped me to be even more compassionate about helping other women understand themselves better. I definitely recommend this training to any woman who wants to help anyone in their life even if you don’t plan on leading circle. It is helping me in so many areas of my life, not just as a leader. One of those areas is with my daughter, who sees me as her biggest role model. Thank you Tanya for creating this space to help us all grow individually and collectively.
Just signed my first client into a 12 week circle for $750!!! She sent me $100 to secure her spot right there over the phone. She came to my introductory circle and said it’s what she’s really been needing. She LOVED the agreements and it was a big reason why she felt safe being in circle. She said the way I contained the circle felt so inviting and safe. She knew she wanted to join.
For those wondering: I didn’t make any real offer. The women asked if they could meet more often and I said if they wanted to meet weekly they are welcome to consider joining my closed, committed 12 week circle.
Thank you Thank you Tanya Lynn and Sistership Circle!!! I am filled with gratitude ? for what I’m learning and all that you offer. This wouldn’t have been possible without the How to Lead Circle program and your support.
I was interested in belonging to and facilitating Circle, yet I needed more guidance. During my journey in the How to Lead Circle program, I was supported by all attendees, guided by Tanya and learnt how to hold this beautiful container for women going forward in my work. This has transpired to the Circles I have held and the feedback I have received. I feel confident to safely and consciously be present and hold sacred space in circle for all women willing to create this movement.
I have hidden much of my adult life from public speaking. Over the years I’ve been invited to speak but found every reason to decline. This week I said YES! I sat with the fear and took inspired action as my calling is bigger than my fear now.
After being in How to Lead Circle, I am so excited to say I stepped into the space of visibility yesterday and had 12 women ( on a yoga retreat) sit around a table with me to hear my story and experience my organic products. I was nervous and shared that from my heart and then everything flowed. I spoke for 45 minutes in a conversational style that included questions and connection.
I then treated 5 women to a deeply nurturing facial.
As I was packing up I had 10/12 women order products. A huge monetary value for me in 3 1/2 hours of work.
The experience was beyond words as I’ve hidden for so long in regards to public speaking in front of an audience. I feel open and am excited for what’s next.
This is a life changing break through for me.
Because of How to Lead Circle I became more aware of my unique gifts and what I have within to contribute to others on their journey of transformation. HTLC really brought clarity to my inner vision and what I DO want to create with my circles. By the completion of the course I felt so empowered and had a clear path moving forward to apply what I had learned with confidence. The support offered during the course was phenomenal and the women in circle are amazing!
There are so many reasons I appreciate HTLC. I connected with some amazing women I would never have met any other way. Tanya and Sharlene, who taught and facilitated my circle class, truly walk their talk in being not just wise, but honest and vulnerable in their sharing and leading. It’s important to me that my teachers model both the behavior and the energy that supports my learning, and they do that. One of my biggest takeaways from the course was the experience of actually leading a circle, which each of us did in pairs. I could see what worked and what didn’t work so well in an environment where I felt supported and encouraged, and had no fear of being judged. For a perfectionist like me, that was priceless.
It is so wonderful to have the Sistership Circle program available for those that want to not only participate in group process but to learn how to create this type of healing space. Right now in this time of the “rise of the female” many women are seeking information on how to access their inner strength, guidance and knowledge.
One of the things I appreciate about the Sistership Circle process is that the focus is not on perfectionism ~ but rather showing up and holding space are the key factors. Oftentimes the need to be a perfect facilitator or teacher or leader knocks many of us right out of the “start” box. We won’t allow ourselves to get into the leadership role because we think we’re not ready yet. We haven’t perfected everything we need to know/do/be.
Sistership gives you the tools to get started in a relatively short amount of time. You can quickly feel secure enough by getting the support you need, as well as guidelines, examples, playbooks, practice templets and friendly sisters to interact with. What could be better!?!
Intuitively many of us know we need to embrace the process of gathering, sharing and taking care of each other by listening, showing compassion and sharing insights. Figuring out how to actually get that is quite another thing. This is where Sistership Circle excels with programs like How to Lead Circle and Feminine Uprising.
Come to Sistership Circle to participate, lead, enjoy. I invite you to come get what you need.
Tanya Lynn really walks her talk. She sincerely wants to share her knowledge, and for other women to get out there and start uplifting other women by hosting Sistership Circles. She has carefully thought out her program and over delivers regarding sharing her experiences. I would not have been able to lead my first circle without Tanya and other course participants “having my back.” Thank you Tanya, for helping to start the next wave in history of the movement to liberate women.
When Tanya calls herself an activator, I found this to be so true of my experience. I feel like this was the obvious next step along my path in stepping into a greater responsibility in assisting other women through their spiritual awakenings. The gentle unfolding and healing that has taken place under Tanya’s mentorship has been a huge gift and allowed me to take a deeper peek into the shadowy places that hadn’t been yet revealed. I’m emerging from this program with more clarity and even more on purpose for a mission that I thought I was connected to ~ after this, I understand that connection in a deeper, even more conscious way.
Taking this course was the best move I made in 2016. Tanya thought of everything you need to know to run a successful circle. Within 1 month, I added circles to my 6 week coaching program and 10 women signed up for a December start! I earned nearly $4000 before finishing the course. More important than the money is I love hosting circles and the transformation for the attendees has been amazing. I highly recommend any of Tanya’s trainings!
