Welcome to Circle SchoolA pathway for mythic hearted women
Rooted in an ancient tradition
Growing into a modern movement
Circle School is here for mentors, healers, teachers, space-holders, coaches, practitioners, care-givers, community leaders who desire to deepen into the art, craft and skill of holding circles.
In Circle School we are enhancing our capacity as space-holders, guides, ceremonialists, facilitators and event planners.
We are remembering, reclaiming and redefining this ancient practice of gathering in Circle, and contributing to a modern circle movement for these times.
Deepening into the art, craft and skills of holding circles
Circle School is a place for learning, practising and reflecting on mythic hearted women.
Founded in 2018, Circle School offers potent immersive experiences in the art, craft and skills of holding circles.
We believe that deepening your connection to your ancestral lineage and cultural heritage, and remembering and recovering your myths and stories support your circle work to be rooted in the ancient origins of circles and to create intentional and meaningful circles that meet the needs of your community in today’s troubled world.
We are committed to supporting you to deepen your capacity to create equitable, inclusive, safer, restorative, regenerative and emergent circles and community spaces.
Our founder, Mitlé, our Certified Circle Holder Mentors and our guest teachers are devoted to embodying the principles of Circle and strive to be transparent and generous in their teaching, guidance, support and mentoring.

Journey with me
My circle work began in the realm of women’s circles.
My circles, courses and immersions are informed by my journey of learning about, exploring and reclaiming my ancestral lineage, 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.
I desire all Circle Holders who resonate with my work to feel invited, included and welcome here.
I am committed to continually learning and increasing my capacity to hold diverse, inclusive and safer spaces for those marginalised by our current systems.
I continue to educate myself and work towards gender-expansiveness and LGBQT+ inclusivity.
I continue to do the work of dismantling internalised racism and educating myself to hold safer spaces for Black women, Indigenous women, and Women of Colour (BIWOC).
In Circle School I advocate for the need for white Circle Holders to actively engage with anti-racism, inclusivity and accessibility education and in Circle School we provide classes with paid guest expert teachers to support white Circle Holders to do so.
I also understand the need for BIWOC only spaces in our learning community and offer BIWOC only Circles held by a paid Circle School Certified Circle Holder to provide additional support.
Circles for our times
We are remembering how to hold space for one another.
We are reclaiming our ancestral lineages and cultural heritages to create and conduct ritual and ceremony.
We are deepening our capacity to create safer, inclusive and accessible sacred spaces.
We are creating our circles in response to the challenges of our times.
From Our Circle Holders
The journey with Mitlé felt like a sacred practice. I felt seen, heard, embraced and loved from within. I’ve finally learnt how to show up, especially in the online world, by embracing and expressing all of my gifts. Circle School goes beyond holding Circles. It has been a deep transformation for me, in my life.
Mitlé has a level of authenticity, care and nurturing that makes you feel safe and secure in working alongside her. She is well versed in her knowledge of Circle and the importance of this for the greater whole. She encourages you to delve deeper into yourself so that you can harness the energy of Circle and support others to transform too.
