BEing The beLOVEd Community: Creating “Fertile Ground” In Sacred Circles

As Bodhi’s Coordinator of Care, I am committed to expanding the experience of intimacy and belonging within the community. Sacred Circles are #FertileGround for this. Sacred Circles are small groups that gather monthly to socialize, enjoy food, and dive into our monthly series through prayer, meditation, reflection, and sharing. I find Circles to be an opportunity for participants to witness and be witnessed—to support, uplift, and inspire one another as we show up authentically and anchor ourselves in Truth.

I invite you to join a Circle and give yourself the gift of coming together in spiritual practice with like-minded people to build community. Discover the power of Sacred Circles to deepen your connection to yourself, others and Spirit!

From beLOVEd Community Members In Sacred Circles

“Sacred Circle is a holy and loving space where I consciously practice a new way of being in the world: fully present to what comes up in my life, sharing honestly from my heart, taking full responsibility for my thoughts, feelings and actions, and witnessing others without interruption, blame, shame, judgment, or advice. This is how I experience being in Beloved Community.”
— Therese Rutkowski, Women’s Circle
“The Men’s Circle has been fertile ground for me because it deepens the connection that we have with each other. Though we often interact briefly after service on Sunday, the Circle extends that time and allows us to share ourselves more deeply. I’ve gained a sense of belonging and support, knowing that there is a community of like-minded individuals ready to commune authentically. The impact is immeasurably positive because I know that if I have anything on my mind, the group is ready and willing to listen.”
— Randy DeVaul, Men’s Circle
“Each time I make a commitment to share more love, I get more love to share. Once a week I go to Bodhi to fill my heart, and once a month Bodhi, through it’s community members, comes to my home to fill it up with love. Opening my home to a Bodhi Sacred Circle has been a blessing, and holding the Universal Truths with those in my Sacred Circle has helped me to be more aware that Love, Abundance, Harmony and Joy, just to name a few, are a constant in my life – and who doesn’t want that?!”
— Delphine Ruiz, Kaleidoscope Circle
