    We’d like for you to bring one thing to our circle Friday evening that symbolizes one of your passionsor interests and tells us more about who YOU really are. It could be a poem, a passage, a photo, or an everyday item (if you are a parent, we’re going to challenge you to not bring a photo of your kids as your “thing”). Bring something that helps us get a sense for what matters most to you in life, ideally one of your passions.

    Also, we would love for you to bring a photo of yourself as a toddler(between ages 1-4 ideally) for our discussion around self-compassion. You can take a picture with your phone of a photo you have lying around the house and print/cut it out—I’d leave originals at home.

    We look forward to our weekend and being in a women’s circle with you. Don’t hesitate to e-mail us with questions at[email protected], dialogue with us on Facebook,or call 512-459-6700.
