Surpass Women's Circle
Reframing how we see things is an almighty shift in perspective - not only to heal
and to overcome fear, anxiety and compulsion - but all forms of suffering.
We cannot allow ourselves to get sucked into the collective insanity of distraction and finger pointing. We must learn to turn away, to say, "No" to the internal compulsion to participate. Why? For the sake of our serenity as individuals, for one, and for the sake of our ability to generate a new response as a species. To create a better response, we need to be grounded and focused.
Here's a powerful new frame in answer to the question, "What the *&ˆ% is happening?!?" Learn ways to stop the ego chatter and to intercept it, to prevent falling back into internal narratives that are divisive. Whether the stories and narratives are manipulations from the outside that are being repeated within, or just self-talk that is fraught with the negative patterns of past relationships that were about judgement. It's that constant negative chatter that creates suffering because it cuts the connection to the source of your being and the flow of life energy. In circle, we hold the space for creating a calmer, more joyous reality.
Facilitator: Gabrielle Pullen
Circle convener since 2012 for Gather the Women of Nevada County, when she was still living in California, Gabrielle has begun holding circles for women seeking to create a new narrative going forward for a better world personally and globally in Southern Oregon.
The original group years ago was a safe space for group consciousness to flourish and give birth to a communally written book, The Write to Heal Abuse Anthology. This publication included poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction and memoir about the moment of realization that "something's gotta give and it's not going to be me." Going forward, the focus on the circle is more geared towards the practical essence of surpassing trauma. Gabrielle, like any teacher worth her salt, is always evolving new and more effective ways to co-create a new world, one that works towards the highest good for all.
