Circles are a space where you can practice the art of deep listening and speak without being interrupted. They are a great way to have some dedicated time for yourself, outside your daily roles , to slow down, and connect with other women. We share stories, eat cake, drink tea, laugh and/or cry, and leave feeling less lonely. You don't have to be a certain kind of person to attend. My circle are non-religious. They were born from my own desire to create community in my new town, to skip the small talk, and to be surrounded by other women's wisdom. I've witnessed wonderful things in the aftermath of circle: women deciding to claim more time for themselves, pursue a hobby, return to a former passion, find the courage to have a difficult conversation with someone, or get a sense of understanding and even closure on an experience from the past. This month I have invited my friend Greta to lead our craft session. Here is a bit about her: "I am a novice potter who fell in love with handbuilding when I took the class at New Plymouth Potters four years ago while pregnant with my first daughter. Children and life meant I didn't have much time or energy to pursue it beyond the end of the course. My passion was reignited when I got to work clay between my fingers at one of Georgi's circles. I became a member of the pottery club shortly after. There's a feminine energy to pottery; it's a nurturing, sensual, therapeutic, and creative process. Because the process is so enjoyable, it's not always about the end result for me, but it can be so rewarding to bring creative ideas to life by smoothing and shaping clay with my hands."
