Connection | Circle | Community
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome
A Circle Holder walking the ancient path in a modern world.
Growing up on the lands of the Iceni, the tribe of Boudicca, I am remembering forgotten ways of connecting to the land, ourselves and each other.
My work is guiding and mentoring women through Circle School, reminding us of the importance of acknowledging our ancestors, honouring where we are from and reclaiming our lost stories.
A former lawyer, I am passionate about offering a path of integrity back to self, through connection, community and circle.
Desiring deeply to support others to create safer spaces for women, I draw on my own journey of learning about, exploring and reclaiming my ancestral lineage and my cultural heritage including the old Western wisdom traditions and British native mythology, cultivating my mythic imagination and understanding the archetypes active in my life and work to support the process of connecting to ourselves and the land that we stand on.
I combine my lived experiences, continuing education and travel to gently guide you to express yourself in Circle through storytelling, nature-based practices, rituals and ceremonies.
I bring a unique blend of the practical, ethical and mystical to remembering the ancient tradition of gathering in Circle and redefining Circles for these times.
I believe that the practice of Circling is vital in these times of collective uncertainty and transition.
“Taking circles beyond something we do or attend by embracing them as a philosophy for how we live.”
I founded Circle School to share the art, craft, and skills of holding intentional, meaningful, safer and courageous gatherings to meet our times.
I offer immersive circles, classes, courses and conversations
My guiding philosophy is that Circles are not something we do, but who we are; we bring the truest expression of ourselves to our circles, and what we learn and experience in the circle process offers guidance in our daily lives.
In these times of ongoing uncertainty and transition, social, racial and environmental injustice, collective grief and trauma, circles offer a profoundly helpful and healing medicine.
From Our Circle Holders
Mitle is a truly skilled and knowledgeable teacher and her space holding capacity created such a safe and secure container to be able to look into those parts of me that have brought me so many life lessons. This is enabling me to discern my path and my calling within holding space and Circle.
Circle School feels like a sacred guild of space holders. A place to be and reflect and delight in and question the art of gathering people. Circle School is not a prescriptive course, it is a sharing of Mitle’s wisdom and series of quests to start/continue to weave your Circles. It is challenging and wonderful.
