COVENANT CIRCLES: Covenant Circles are about Building Beloved Community. In the words of Starhawk: “Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Some-where a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace we can be free.” If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Gordon Branson at email@example.com.
