Women's Insight Circle: Meditation, Reflection + Connection
When:  Second Thursday of each month: 
2018: Nov. 8 , Dec. 13
Time:  6:30 - 8 p.m.
Location:  Infinity Holistic Wellness & Yoga - Chicago Loop

Women have been gathering in circles since the beginning of time to share stories and find connection. But in this era of increased digital connection and noise, what sort of connection are we trulymaking with ourselves and others?

This monthly, in-person experience weaves together several mindfulness practices designed to inspire relaxation, reflection and dialogue around a theme relevant to our lives as women. Participants will be guided in a meditation and reflective writing, followed by a circle share rooted in indigenous traditions to inspire mindful listening and tap the collective wisdom of women in attendance.

Take a pause to find strength within ourselves and each other. Beginners to meditation and frazzled minds are welcome to join!

Theme for November: GRATITUDE.

“Behind every great woman, there are probably a bunch of other great women.”

Women have been gathering in circles since the beginning of time to share their stories and find connection. With female voices growing stronger and louder, it’s even more important to proactively seek out and celebrate our commonalities. Join Erica Bray, who will weave traditions she’s collected from around the world as a travel journalist into this monthly gathering tethered to a provocative theme. Experience a guided meditation, followed by sacred time to reflect, share, listen and connect. Music, poetry and words of wisdom will accompany the time together. Let’s find strength and empowerment within ourselves and with each other. No meditation experience necessary.

Participants will receive light acupuncture in the ears delivered by a licensed acupuncturist before experiencing a guided meditation by a meditation teacher specializing in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Individual aromatherapy will also be offered as a part of the experience. Beginners are welcome.

“I close my eyes in order to see.” – Paul Gauguin

Turn your vision inward. While wearing a blindfold, experience a slow-moving and supportive yoga practice paired with a guided meditation. With your most relied-upon sense removed, and nobody to “compare” yourself to, you’ll have a unique opportunity to observe, listen and respond with heightened awareness, cultivating mindfulness skills in a truly provocative way. Some yoga experience is recommended.

Enhance your yoga and meditation practice with natural aromas designed to relax and restore. This sweet-smelling practice is for those curious about essential oils.

We’ll integrate several oils into a practice grounded in gratitude, followed by an education and time to experiment with a collection of oils by doTERRA. No yoga or meditation experience is required.
