What are the benefits?
It supports participants to grow in self-awareness, empathy, as well as combat loneliness and isolation. We'll start with a brief grounding meditation and introduce the theme of the day. Take a few moments to create the group agreement together and then I'll suggest three questions to reflect upon. This can be in writing form, by take time to think or engaging in artistic expression. After the 10 minutes are over, you'll then be invited to share your thoughts and reflections with the group. Each participant will speak one by one while the rest of the group listens. If time permits, there will be a second round of sharing in which participants will focus on anything that has been said that resonates with their experience or any new points of view that they find useful. To close each Share & Support Space participants will be invited to share one word that encapsulates what they are taking away from the session.

(this events' name at the time was 'Connecting Circles').
Connecting Circles is great for times of isolation but also helpful as a space to check-in with yourself and realize you are not alone. Sarah creates a virtual space that allows genuine relationships to form by encouraging us to express our thoughts without judgment. Looking at how we and others see the world without fear of criticism encourages us to sit with what is, to acknowledge who we are in that moment. I have left each session with more acceptance and understanding of myself and others. I would recommend everyone to sign up for at least one of the Circles. Rachel V. PhD Researcher – U.S.
Sarah is a very supportive coach. Her circles create spaces where people can speak their fears and find and double their strengths. And all without judgement. Am glad I stumbled upon this (pun intended!). Thank you Sarah and circle-kin. Simran K. Graduate teaching assistant – India
Sarah’s circles are real treat for the souI. I really enjoyed meeting people from all around the world and sharing experience. Sarah provides a unique and safe space for homes sharing. The circle’s safe and magical atmosphere helped me to talk about my Father’s death for the first time in a group setting. The circle taught me the power and strengthens of silence. Sometimes it is more powerful than many words.As we were encouraged to draw or to express our feelings in pictures - it really inspired me to start drawing and painting again after my first circle. I am always looking forward to the next circle and getting to know super interesting and honest people from all over the world.Aliz T. Brand strategic planner – Hungary
I joined my first connecting circle with Sarah recently, and although I had little idea of what to expect, I was met with an experience that I can only describe positively. While exploring the idea of resilience through simple, open-ended questions, there was space for each individual to share and connect, despite the majority of us being complete strangers. This was due in no small part to Sarah’s warm and engaging presence, even through a screen, that allowed her to create a safe and powerful environment for participants. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to joining another circle in the very near future. Laura F. Teacher – Ireland
