First Circle 2016

First Circle is the name given to the powerful women who come together to hold the space for, and create Being Woman.

Here are the beautiful women of our 2016 First Circle.  Each divine woman has shared a little about themselves, what called them to step forward to First Circle, and their vision for the year ahead...
