Women’s Empowerment Circle
All women are welcome. The Women’s Empowerment Circle is for all women who wish to gain and deepen self-awareness and self-discovery, increase confidence, decrease self-criticism, and create a more balanced life. This is a place were women can come to take their social masks off, express a range of emotions and be genuinely who they are. The group also allows for the connection between mind and body, which research has shown have a strong link. We now know the impact mental health can have on physical health. High levels of stress can contribute to heart disease, chronic illness and pain, other somatic issues. The empowerment circle serves as a place to find meaningful ways to connect to others as well as to yourself and your physical body. We work to help you identify area of stress in your life and find useful tools as well as healing in order to bring about lasting change and overall better heath. All ages, perspectives and experiences are welcome.
As we aim to broaden awareness and introduce a place of healing and wellness, we are offering your first circle gathering free of charge. All participants, including those attending for the first time free of charge, must register in advance. Please feel free to bring along a friend or loved one. The circle is an adult only gathering and anyone age 18 and older is welcome to participate.
Kelley Kuchinov, MA, ATR-BC, will be your host and guide in the Circle. Kelley is a Registered Board Certified Art Therapist with over 15 years of experience working with women and leading workshops. Kelley is skilled at holding the circle space so that it can be a place where all feelings are valid and heard. Your fellow Circle participants will also play an equally important role in moving the group in the direction of healing and self- exploration. Together, you, your host and your fellow participants will explore what is and is not work for you right now. In a supportive community you will practice letting go of old patterns and seek to find the source of your own inner healing and compassion.
We meet twice a month on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm-8pm. The Circle will be hosted in the Sage House Art Therapy space, which is located in Reston, VA, just a few blocks from the Wiehle-Reston Metro stop. While we welcome attendance at any point, we do encourage participants to attending at least three consecutive circle gatherings in order to form trust with other circle members and cohesion as a group.
Please register 24 hours in advance of the circle gathering you wish to attend. Here is a list of our upcoming circle dates:
