ReCircles are a form of continuing education and an opportunity for deeper connection in existing Empowerment Circles. They are short (1-1 ½ hours), personalized workshops for your circle! Your circle may choose to relearn something from the E-circle training or pick a subject that is brand-new to your group. The options are listed below. Once your circle has collectively chosen a topic, 2 guides will join your circle during its normal time if possible, bringing explanation of the subject and tools to add to your circle’s virtual Tool Box.
These tools are created to serve both new and experienced circles alike and may include:

What does a ReCircle cost?
The cost of each ReCircle is $150. We suggest a minimum donation of $10 per circle member, though you may pay more if you choose. Our goal is to make this accessible to everyone, regardless of financial ability or whether your circle is large or small. When the cost is not covered by a circle’s members, the Woman to Woman Kentuckiana Leadership Circle will cover the difference. In the event that a circle collectively pays more than the cost, the additional money will go into our community’s scholarship fund.
A circle's payment must be received before guides come in. Find details on how to pay for a ReCircle below, in HOW DOES MY CIRCLE SCHEDULE A RECIRCLE? Note: Circle members individually choose how much they can pay, but must invest something. All donations are non-refundable, unless guides, for some reason, are unable to come into your circle.
We ask for payment in advance for two reasons:
So that the time and energy during that circle can be given to the workshop.
When a circle boldly chooses a difficult subject to explore, such as Shame or Clearings, it is not uncommon for someone to suddenly find themselves not feeling well that evening.
The guides do not take this commitment lightly and we ask the same of your circle. We are honored to be asked into your circle and grateful for your commitment to learning and growth.
How does my circle schedule a ReCircle?
To begin, your circle decides on which subject they’d like to delve into. If you have trouble picking just one, keep in mind that guides can come again sometime! You’ll find some suggestions to help your circle choose its first ReCircle topic.
One member of your circle will collect payments and send them in via mail or PayPal. We suggest a minimum donation of $10 per circle member. A circle’s payment must be received before guides will come in. (Read more above in WHAT DOES A RECIRCLE COST?) If paying by PayPal, please put a note in the comment section such as “Payment for ReCircle”. Checks can be made out to Woman to Woman Kentuckiana and sent to P.O. Box 6465, Louisville, KY 40206.
Point person, please include the following in your email:
The subject chosen for your ReCircle
When and where your circle meets
Any questions or issues concerning the topic you’ve chosen you’d like addressed. The E-circle coordinator will give them to your guides so they can incorporate them into the class.
A few dates (3-4) when your circle meets starting 2 to 3 weeks from the time of the email. For example, if you email her on June 1, the dates would begin no earlier than June 15. This will give us the time and information needed to schedule guides to come into your circle.
