What is Circlework?

Circlework is a powerful and effective tool for awakening what Jalaja Bonheim, the originator of Circlework, calls global consciousness — the awareness of our oneness as a global community — in large numbers of people. In the practice of Circlework, we use circle gatherings to create a field of love so powerful that participants experience their unity and interconnectedness in life-changing ways.

As a body-mind-soul practitioner for over 25 years, I have participated in many trainings, workshops, and seminars. Among them, I consider Jalaja’s circles to be magic made manifest. Empowering the divine feminine through ancient, soft, loving, wisewoman ways, Jalaja is a true spiritual guide and transformational artist.

Circlework has opened up room in my life for what I want; for my priorities. I am realizing who I really am and what I need to do. Each time I return to the circle, I come out more myself, and less swayed by the roller coaster of daily life. Contact with the circle is contact with my source, and it feeds me.

Community, Communion, Compassion, Communication….four interconnected values. Circlework evolves out of the raw material of real lives, real women, real pain, joy, dreams, visions, hopes, fears. Circlework transforms the glimmer of possibility into realized changes in attitude, breath and breadth of wisdom. Circlework heals me, others, our world.
