Vulnerability is not winning or losing; its having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it is our greatest measure of courage - Brene Brown

Gathering in circle to me is all about being seen and seeing; not with a passing glance but with a very direct, present - time awareness. I believe that when we gather in this way we begin to conjure up an ancient energy of circle-healing that travels back to the beginning of humankind. The shape of the circle neutralizes, so there is no one above or below, we are all on common ground and from this place we can really see that we are not alone in our struggles, longings and excitements. It is from this place we can find deep healing and true belonging


In this sharing circle for men you can expect: A sacred space held by yoga teacher and spiritual mentor Karina Brossmann, guided meditations, open-heart sharings, improvised movement, yummy snacks & more! These circles are not associated with any singular path or religion, but rather, an inclusive coming together with men from all paths. We all come from different spiritual/cultural backgrounds so this is a time for us to gather around the ideas of:

Brotherhood: Having each others backs and empowering each other to speak and express our truth.

Respect for Vulnerability: Holding the sacred container of confidentiality; not sharing anyone else’s story outside the circle. Celebrating each other’s vulnerability as a signal of power not weakness. Embracing the tears, the laughs and the deep unfoldings of each others path.

Heart-Centered Listening: When we listen to each other from our hearts we can start to access the divine, unconditional presence of love that lives deep within ourselves.

Now, more than ever, we are in need of conscious community without distractions. A time to gather around the truth of who we are, rather than the mask of who we pretend to be. This circle will become a grounding force of healing in your life as you allow yourself to be seen and heard.

***This is a closed circle, which means once we start in September no one else will be allowed to join. It also means that once you commit to the circle you commit to being at every session. If you are unable to come to one of the sessions that is okay but you will still have to pay for all sessions.
