Peace Circle (Waterloo): Open to Love

March 23, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

You are invited to our next Peace Circle …

Gathering in Circle is as ancient and familiar as time. We can all remember sitting around a campfire, telling stories and sharing ideas, basking in the intimacy and warmth of both the fire and those present.

For some, this may be a new or unfamiliar experience, evoking feelings of vulnerability and fear. It takes courage to acknowledge this fear and resistance and move forward toward what you truly yearn for and need. The beauty and power of Peace Circle is ‘the container’ we collectively create which keeps us safe in our vulnerability. In that moment when we tell our stories with our whole heart, and where we are being deeply witnessed, the pain or joy we experience transforms into power and love.

Love is the bridge to everything. But unless we risk the courage to speak from our hearts, we will never discover the strength and love we have inside of us.

And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself? – Rumi

Peace Circle (Waterloo): Open to Love

Wednesday, March 23, 2016  (7:00-9:30 pm)

Neuroscience, great love songs, holy scripture of all traditions focus on the life-giving nature of Love. Without love, our hearts die, we die. Love is as important to our well-being as food and water. Sharing our stories of love calls us back to our hearts and connects us to what gives us true life. Love then, is our bridge to joy and peace.

hand-838975_640In this Peace Circle, we will be sharing sacred stories about our journey with love for ourselves and others. As we recount our personal stories, we will remember and reconnect with the power of love which transforms lives and relationships. We will reflect on what restores essential meaning to our most significant relationships. And finally, we will develop a deeper understanding of what it means to live from a place of love.

Within this network of support and shared wisdom called Peace Circle, you will gain access to what will help you live the life you imagine for yourself outside of Circle. Experience Love as the natural bridge to joy and peace.

Love is the bridge between you and everything. – Rumi

Circle Facilitators:

My name is Shirley Lynn Martin and I’m passionate about activating peace in our hearts and ways of being. I’m passionate about creating sacred space, where together, we develop our collective wisdom to best create a culture of peace and right relationship in every area of our lives.

I have partnered with Karen to create Peace Circles. As a facilitator, I bring 20 years of experience as a Soul Coach, Reiki Master/Teacher, whole life therapist and ordained Reverend. Peace Circles provides a great opportunity for me to bring together my training, my passion, purpose and wisdom. I’m grateful for my diverse formal (as well as informal) training, especially in the field of ‘Circle work’ from some of the best trainers in the field. I honour them as I now step into sharing Peace Circles with you.

My name is Karen McCarthy and I have always had a passion for creating safe, ecological and creative spaces for people to share, explore and transform their lives in authentic and meaningful ways. For over 18 years I worked with businesses, helping leaders and teams identify their shared purpose and build true, effective teams that worked together to achieve their goals. I helped teams create safe places where they could share the real issues and tap into their shared wisdom to create lasting solutions.

I have been a yogi for over 20 years as well as a Reiki Master for 9 years. My focus and passion has evolved to creating opportunities for building and experiencing greater peace within our lives and our relationships. My formal training in Peace Circle facilitation has allowed me the wonderful opportunity to partner with Shirley Lynn to use Circle to offer peace building experiences to people. In the sacred space of Circle we come together to create a place where we can nurture and deepen our connection to peace on earth.

We look forward to sitting in Circle with you!
