Circle School™  is for women stepping into the role of Circle Holder and who are seeking a mentor for support and guidance and a sisterhood of women on a similar path.

I was inspired to start Circle School based on my experience of starting Circles in my local community and then running Circles on line. I have had many women reach out to me over that time, seeking guidance and support to start their own Circles.

Circle School is for women who are feeling the call to start leading women’s gatherings or sacred circles and wish to…

…be guided through the process of starting and holding regular circles

…be mentored as you step into your role as Sacred Circle Holder

…be supported in your role by a sisterhood of women

…have access to resources, tools and practices

If you feel called to step into the role of the sacred circle holder but are stuck thinking…

“I don’t know where to start?”

“What if something goes wrong?”

“I don’t think people will pay to come”

“I don’t know the right format”

“I don’t have enough experience”

“I’m an introvert”


I don’t teach you to hold my Circles,

I guide you to create your Circles.

“Wow! I attended my first ever Sister Circle with Mitle in Brisbane last week… I felt so welcome, comfortable and completely in the right place. Literally walked away feeling so much release, relief and calm! Thank you so much Mitle… can’t wait to do it again!” Claire Barton

From the moment I arrived and embraced Mitlé with a hug that is exactly what I felt and as each women entered this sacred space this divine love was amplified I feel so very grateful and humbled to have shared this transformative experience with these wonderful souls we were gifted with heartfelt stories, smiles, tears and humour it felt comfortable and yet at times excitingly uncomfortable If you have the opportunity to attend a sistermind circle or a sister school workshop I am sure you will enjoy the experience and walk away feeling loved and inspired. Tammie Sharp

Thank you Mitle for such an amazing circle school workshop in Perth. After having been part of your online Sistermind circle for almost a year now, and experiencing firsthand how deeply nourishing this space can be, I really wanted to learn more. Your workshop was wonderful at providing a clear structure, content and tools for running a circle, but has also given me the confidence to actually bring an idea into realisation. I love the post workshop support too to work through some ideas / questions that have come up whilst planning my own circle. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone seeking to begin holding sacred space for women, Sister circles are such a powerful way for women to connect with themselves and each other, the world needs so much more of this incredible heart medicine.
