Are you interested in facilitating circles, but afraid that women won’t show up or if they do, they won’t get enough value?

Are you lacking structure, direction and a curriculum to use and so feel a little unsure of yourself?

Are you ready to take the first step in becoming a Sistership Circle Facilitator?

If so, you’ve come to the right place!

In 2013, we developed a 12-week circle curriculum (called The Circle Experience) that has a brilliant structure, is unique from any other circle out there with its emphasis on feminine leadership, and has worked for facilitators who’ve used it all over the world.

Whether you’ve been leading circles for 20 years or have never led a circle in your life, our “How to Lead Circle Program” is step 2 of our six step certification process and teaches the foundation of Sistership Circle.

It takes you through The Circle Experience first hand, gives you a behind-the-scenes look at why the structure works, facilitation experience, and a foundation to apply to your own circles (whether or not you choose to continue the certification process and become a Sistership Circle Facilitator.)

*This program fulfills steps 1 & 2 of the Sistership Circle Facilitator Certification Process.

How the Program Works

The How to Lead Circle Program is divided into two sections. The first section (*week 1 through 6) takes you through key facilitation distinctions so you know what to do and how to be in the leadership seat. The second section (weeks 7 through 12) gives you the opportunity to practice your new found facilitation skills and starting having conversations in your local community so you can start your first monthly circle gathering.

Weekly Training Modules

Each Module contains step-by-step training videos, done-for-you templates and scripts, supplemental audio meditations and visualizations, and action guides designed to take you through the exact process to lead your circle.

Practice Time & Feedback

We know that confidence comes from experience and so we create the opportunity for you to practice leading during the second half of the program. We give you valuable feedback to increase your confidence and give you confirmation that you are on the right path. This is what makes our program stand out … we give you information, application and practice.

Coaching & Accountability

In addition, we are committed to you leading circles no matter if you are Sistership Circle certified or not. So we coach you through the process of starting your first monthly local circle gathering and give you accountability support to successfully lead one by the end of our time together.

Weekly Circle Experience

Every week you will have a weekly circle call via Zoom video conference with other participants and your trainer. On these calls, you will see the facilitation principles being applied and connect deeply with the other feminine leaders in your circle.

Sisterhood Support

Many women join our program to lead a circle because they personally want deeper connections with like-minded women and want to create the space for themselves and others. You will develop meaningful relationships with other feminine leaders around the world and be part of a community of women empowering women.

The Forum

Have a question? Need support? We’ve got an open forum where all of our students can meet to discuss what they are working on, challenges that they face and overcome, tips on facilitation, what worked and what didn’t work for their marketing, and much more.

Our Mission

We believe that the power of women gathering in circle is so great that it is how we will change the world. Our mission is to empower the leadership in as many women as possible on this planet. As we become increasingly conscious, we can see the power of collaborating instead of competing with one another and becoming more mindful of our impact on others and the planet.

Imagine if there was a local circle in every town. When women feel seen and heard, they light up. They feel empowered to make a difference. When women work together, magic happens. We are by nature nurturers, connectors and caretakers.

This is why we need women like YOU to raise their hands and be the catalyst for more circles to exist, more places for women to gather and support one another. This program is your first step into your soul’s purpose to empower women by leading them in circles and make a living doing something you love

The Curriculum

The Beginning

Start your circle with a bang. Your first circle sets the tone for all of the circles following so coming prepared and creating a solid structure from the beginning is important.

The Priestess

Circle Call: Self Care

Set up a foundation for yourself so that self-care becomes second nature to you instead of something you feel guilty about.

  • A checklist of self-care rituals for leaders
  • How to get what you need from circle so you don’t get resentful

Circe Call: Healing the Sisterhood Wound

As you are calling in your circle, you may have old sisterhood wounds surface. Women have been catty and competitive as a result of patriarchal structure and it’s time we heal those wounds so you can create a safe, nurturing and loving space for other women to also heal.

  • Get clear on your perfect venue so it can be manifested with ease

  • Get clear on who to invite and make the invitations
  • How to have other women help spread the word if you don’t know a lot of people

The Feminine Leader

As you move closer toward your first circle, it’s important to find the balance between your masculine (taking action and being goal oriented) and you’re feminine (trusting the process and being in flow).

Circe Call: Honoring the Masculine

We all have masculine and feminine qualities within us and being a feminine leader requires integrating them so you are whole and complete within yourself. We’ll explore what your relationship with the masculine has been so you can move into a healthy balance.

  • How to take action without getting burned out
  • Learn when to flow and when to push
  • Discover the block that typically gets in the way of trusting the process

The Midwife

The best analogy to starting a circle is the birth process itself. There is a point at which most women meet a wall and want to quit. But once they surrender and trust that the baby is coming out, they finally make it to the final push and give it all they got.

Circe Call: Listening to your inner child

Your little girl has something to say. She lives in your heart and can inspire you to let go and be kind to yourself. You will connect with her on our circle call and have her be an ally for your circle.

  • Why most women want to start circle but never do
  • Receive inspiration and motivation to keep going when you hit your wall
  • Learn the magic words to help you surrender

The Ceremonialist

Conscious completion is one of the most powerful things missing in today’s society. When you honor the process you went through and acknowledge your successes, failures, excitement and disappointment, you are able to move forward powerfully in your life.

Circe Call: Completion and Celebration

We want to make sure you leave the program with no in-completions and you feel fully acknowledged and celebrated for who you are and the future you are creating. You will experience a power ritual to complete the program.

  • Why you need to let women express their sadness and disappointment if a circle is ending
  • How to bring conscious completion to your circle
  • How to bring celebration and acknowledgement to your circle

Is This Program Really Right for Me?

Our 12-Week How to Lead Circle program starts at various times throughout the year. You can find the upcoming dates and times at the enrollment page here. This is a prerequisite for any advanced training.

This program is for coaches, healers, yoga teachers, therapists and other spiritual women on the path of women’s empowerment. Perhaps you do one on one work and want to transition to working with groups.

This program is for women who are working a corporate job and know its not what you’re really supposed to be doing; you want to transition to doing something more meaningful and fulfilling.

This program is for women who want sisterhood for themselves and want to create that safe space for other women.

This program is for any woman who is passionate about empowering the women of the world.

This program is for women who are already leading groups and want to enhance their facilitation skills and potentially join our team.

This program is for any woman who wants to own her self-worth for doing her soul work in the world and get paid doing what she loves.

“Attending How to Lead Circle Program 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 trough 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.” ~ Johanna Leon

The program consists of:

1) weekly video content that you watch/listen to on your own time and

2) a weekly circle call to see the application of what we talked about in the video and connect with like-minded ambitious feminine leaders like yourself. You can find the upcoming times available at the enrollment page here.

This program came into your awareness right now for a reason. If you feel a resonance, make one of the times work (remember you can always listen to the recordings if you need to miss a call). Commitment takes boldness and the universe always conspires with those who take the leap of faith.

There’s never the perfect time and you are never really “ready” for any big changes that come in your life (marriage, baby, etc). Life will always be full and you will always doubt whether this is the right time.

But if you absolutely cannot do this right now, we will open enrollment again soon. You can request a call time by writing to admin@sistershipcircle.com.

Circle does not require you to have yourself together or wear a mask. In fact, this circle that I lead is about you learning how to reveal yourself and come more into your wholeness as a woman. This means you are able to show up no matter how you feel and allow yourself to be seen in your beauty AND your messy.

This is a new type of leadership. When you learn how to play your full range of emotion, you start to build confidence. When you allow this circle to see your vulnerability, that’s when you start to transform the fear and doubt that you are not good enough … because the women will mirror back to you that they still love and accept you even when you are messy.

I’ve had women fall apart in our leadership circle and then come out on the other end more aligned and embodied in their truth. This is the place to discover your truth. This is what happened to me a few years ago when I showed up on the calls I was leading in tears, completely embarrassed that I couldn’t get myself together. But this is when I really found myself and created a balance between my masculine and feminine powers.

You don’t have to be an expert to lead circle. You just need to be real. And that’s what we are going to teach you and have you experience within yourself. My first circle: I had NO idea what I was doing. But the women trusted me and showed up because I was authentic about it.

If you absolutely cannot do it starting this month, then we will have more start dates throughout the year. You just won’t have the discount that is available today.

Leading circle is not about doing more but about expanding your capacity to be present and hold more energetically. It is not about you “doing” circle but about showing up, being authentic and receiving what you need to fill up.

When you learn to show up despite all the noise going on in your world, clear it, become present, and then drop in to connect, you start to recognize that you have power over your circumstances and you don’t have to get caught up in the drama of life. You also learn how to create more space for yourself by being in this program and create boundaries and speak your needs. This may be why your plate feels full (you are serving everyone else and never giving yourself the much needed break and self-care). Come learn this new model of feminine leadership with us.

To give you some perspective, when we facilitate The Circle Experience in our local cities, we meet from 6:30 – 9pm, spending about 3 hours including travel time per week. This program requires less than three hours/week.

The video content is less than 30 minutes/week and since you have lifetime membership to all the course material, you can visit it at any time, and are available via audio to listen in the car or at the gym.

Each circle call is 90 minutes. The best way to manage your time is to schedule it; make an appointment in your calendar to block off an hour each week to watch the video, do the playsheets, and interact in the forum. Treat it as a date and make it fun!

First, we want to preface that you can easily do this as a self-study course and opt-out of the weekly calls altogether. That is perfectly acceptable! Become a member of the Facilitator Tribe membership and you’ll receive access to the 6-week video module course.

The way it is designed, however, is to be on the circle calls so you can experience the facilitation distinctions in action. If you want to connect in sisterhood with other like-minded women leaders, we recommend picking one of the call times and committing to that circle call time (to create the safe space).

If you need to miss one or two calls, no problem! This happens all the time. You have two options: you’ll be able to listen to the recording or you can be a guest on one of the other call times for that week. We have a structure for this that will be explained during the program.

This program is the first step on the path to becoming a Sistership Circle certified facilitator and use our licensed curriculum. It is the perfect place to taste test Sistership Circle at a low price point to then decide whether you want to take it all the way or use what you learned to start leading small monthly circles (or even apply it to other group work, leading retreats, etc.)

We are teaching you how to become a better facilitator; how you choose to use that skill is up to you … We are committed to you leading circles with or without a certification and we will give you a framework to use right away.

That’s not a problem. In fact, we encourage women with no experience to join this program to gain the confidence and experience! You’ve got to start somewhere and this is the place! We’ve had women who have a 9-5 corporate job take our training with no facilitation experience and are now leading their own circles.

It really depends on what your goals are. If you have been leading free circles and want to start getting paid what you are worth, then this training will help you create value with a proven system and structure that women will have no issue paying for. We’ve had women join our training who had experience leading circles, but needed support with creating a sustainable business model. We’ve had hundreds of women happily pay to be in our circle programs and some say we actually do not charge enough for the amount of value.

If you have been leading circles on your own and have hit a plateau, or are tired of being on your own and looking to collaborate and partner with other powerful leaders, then this training will give you the infrastructure to grow and be part of a global movement. We have senior positions available to become a trainer, which if you have been leading circles for a while, may be your next step. This course is prerequisite training to be on our team.

This is probably the biggest thing holding some of you back. You are afraid you will fail, that this program won’t actually support you in stepping into fulfilling this dream, and that at the end of the day, you aren’t cut out for leadership.

We are holding you to your greatness and won’t let you slide down that slippery slope of fear, doubt and worry.

I believe ANY woman can lead circle and trust me, I’ve seen it over and over again. When you step into this circle and have my guidance and a group of other women cheering you on, holding you accountable, ANYTHING is possible. I truly believe it, when you shift your mindset and believe with your whole heart and soul. When you let go and TRUST the process, something opens up and you are guided by the goddess.

We are here to activate what you need for your healing, growth and expansion. Maybe you won’t start a circle by the end of the program, but you will awaken to your power. You will know yourself as someone who can … and that may be a few months afterwards. There is divine timing in everything, but that doesn’t mean you should wait until you are more “qualified” to do this program.

No, we do not offer payment plans for a couple of reasons. What we have found is that when you do a payment plan, you will attract more women who have money blocks and won’t sign up for your circle. So it is the first step in you claiming your own self-worth and creating the space for women to also pay in full.

The second reason is that when you have more skin in the game, you value it more. We want you to be 100% all in and by paying in full, it shows your full commitment.

If you have any other questions or feeling resistance and really want to move through it, then I highly recommend emailing me at support@sistershipcircle.com so I can support you.

You can live in the “someday one day I’ll do that” conversation that most people succumb to, or you can cease the day, take the leap and thank me later for pushing you out of your comfort zone. Those who take action despite resistance are the ones who have the lives of their dreams. Our team has your back every step of the way to support you in rising up to your full potential and claiming this desire to feel empowered as a feminine leader.
