About The Sharing Circle

During this call, you may choose to share anything from your meditation goals for the upcoming month to an insight about you grief journey. This can be as simple as saying "I plan to check in with my breath twice a day," or "I plan to thank myself each time I am kind to myself." Small steps make big results! You may also use this time to ask the group for well wishes, or extra support.
