Many local communities in the Midwest offer opportunities to participate in ongoing support groups — Woman Within/Empowerment Circles. These circles are small groups of women which meet on a regular basis to support each other in their personal growth.
These circles are committed to using a structured set of skills for women to learn how to create a safe environment and to effectively support and communicate with each other. Training in these skills can take many forms. Examples are:
- Guided Multi-Week Training — women meet on a regular basis and training is facilitated by experienced Guides.
- Guided Weekend Intensive Training — takes place over one weekend and is led by experienced Guides.
- Self Guided — by group members using a resource such as the “Empowerment Circle Workbook: Building Vibrant E-Circles” available through Woman to Woman Midwest which provides information needed to lead circle meetings.
