Intentional Motherhood Circles
- commitment sheet -
Our values and commitment to one another in this space:
o Practice deep and active listening, offering each other time to share without interruption.
o Try your best to attend each meeting throughout the 5 week session and to be on time as much as possible. Respond with grace and understanding when ourselves or others are late or unable to attend for various reasons.
o Honor the rule of “no fixing, no saving, no advising, no setting each other straight” during our time for discussion and sharing - there is no end goal.
o Leave space for all voices to share. Sometimes this looks like offering a pause after others or ourselves speak. The quiet can feel awkward or uncomfortable, but it is a companion that accompanies us in finding our truest ability to listen deeply and speak from the heart.
o Feel no obligation to share, but know that our time is made richer by what you contribute.
o Speak for ourselves and offer reactions rooted in gratitude and connected to our own experience.
o Respect the privacy of group members by keeping personal sharing confidential.
o As we go, keep each other in our hearts and thoughts, with a freedom to reach out to each other between meetings.
