WWE Circle Information and Area Circle Coordinators

Program Icons-Green-RGB_CircleWelcome to the Woman Within Eastern USA Circle community. We would like to introduce you to the concept of Woman Within Circles®. Circles are an opportunity to continue the growth you began on your weekend within the supportive environment of a small, local group of women. “Support” may look different depending upon what you are accustomed to.

In Circles, women use a set of skills that allow them to be real, have feelings, tell their truth in a caring way and to both challenge each other and accept each other for where they are. To prepare to join a Circle, women learn necessary skills in a Woman Within Circle Training led by experienced members of the WWE community. Upon completion of this initial program, the women in the group decide whether they wish to continue as a Circle.

A guided circle can be offered as a weekly session for 10 weeks or as a weekend intensive of two or three days. Starting a Guided Circle and then continuing with a new Circle depends upon the number of women interested and the availability of women in the community to guide the circle. If you live in an area of the WWE community that does not have available guides, and if you are interested in being in a Circle, you may choose to start a Self-Guided Circle.
